    Citizen of the year honored

    Longtime resident Domenic Rotondi was honored Wednesday by the Reading-North Reading Chamber of Commerce as the business group’s outstanding Reading citizen of the year. A resident of Reading for more than 50 years, Rotondi and his wife, Carolyn, raised three daughters in the town. An active member of the Reading Lions Club, Rotondi chairs multiple committees for the club and continues his work on the organization’s annual Reading Friends & Family Day, an event he established years ago to give the town’s many charities an opportunity to showcase their work. Rotondi has also played an active role in other local causes. He was a founder of the Bell Tower Fund, which raised more than $35,000 to help preserve the steeple at Old South Church in Reading; helped to raise money for the reading room at the Reading Public Library; and sells Christmas wreaths for the Reading Food Pantry. Rotondi was honored at an awards dinner at the Hillview Country Club in North Reading. At the event, the chamber also honored North Reading Town Moderator John Murphy as its outstanding North Reading citizen of the year. For more information about the chamber, visit
