80th Birthday Soiree at Town Hall For Lifelong Maspeth Guy

Ken Rudzewick is hardly a stranger to Maspeth. In fact, most might argue that he and the financial institution he headed for decades, Maspeth Federal, approach each day doing whatever they can to help the town of Maspeth keep growing and remain exciting for its businesses and residents.

On Sunday, December 10th, Ken dressed in his best President Teddy Roosevelt attire at a celebration hosted by his family at Maspeth Town Hall with about 100 friends and family.

Coincidentally, Ken’s parents held their wedding reception at the same venue in the 1930s.
