Athena Lambrakis was honored for her contribution to the community. And she’s only six months old. The Astoria native became the youngest ever to receive a New York State Citation, presented to her by Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas.
The Assemblywoman recognized Athena for participating in the Day Of Service and Remembrance in Astoria Park on September 9. The event honored the Hell Gate Bridge’s 100th Anniversary, U.S. veterans and 9/11 remembrance.
