The Hampton Bays Beautification Committee will name John Zuccarelli and Molly Doyle as the organization's 2012 'Angels of the Year.' The pair are set to be recognized at the committee's annual holiday luncheon, set for 11:30 a.m. Oaklands on Wednesday.
"They are both very valuable assets to our organization," said Susan vonFreddie, head of the committee. "We will not let them leave."
According to vonFreddie, Zuccarelli currently serves as treasurer of the committee, as well as co-chair of the concert, audit, holiday decoration, garden party and garden tour committees.
"Anytime we ask for a volunteer, John is ready to help," said vonFreddie.
And that is just his nature, said Zucarelli's wife, Valerie.
"He is a very involved type of person," she said, noting that Zucarelli, who is an adjunct math teacher at Suffolk Community College, also sits on the Southampton Town Planning Board, as well as the town's architectural review and conservation boards.
"He just loves Hampton Bays and wants it to be a viable and desirable place to live," she said.
Molly Doyle, who serves as a director and as the committee's photographer, also has a love of her community.
Aside from serving as a director and photographer, vonFreddi said Doyle was a great help on the cookbook committee and also volunteered her time on other committees including the holiday decoration, garden party, garden tour, concert and float committees.
"She also volunteers anytime you ask," said vonFreddi, adding that Doyle also offers up artistic advice fo all events.
Both Doyle and Zuccarelli's names now join with the past Angels of the Year, including J ack O'Keefe and Margaret (Peg) Campbell, .
