Alphonse Lage of Merrick recently received the Shining Star Award from the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County for volunteering with the organization since 1964, according to an article in Newsday. 

“We’ve been involved with United Cerebral Palsy since the early 1960’s, since we moved to Merrick,” Lange told Patch. “There’s always something to do there. We’ve helped to raise money for them, so that keeps me semi-active.”

In 2012, he was named the Merrick Chamber of Commerce's Man of the Year.
