This year’s Member of the Year Award went to Maria Passannante Derr, chairperson of Community Board 2 and an attorney in the Village. Derr is pictured at left, with from left, Jim Hart, chamber chairperson; Bob Zuckerman, the chamber’s executive director; and Peter DeLuca, owner of Greenwich Village Funeral Home.
