Victor Rodriguez, a plumbing supply owner, has taken over as president of the Ozone Park Kiwanis Club, succeeding Jonah Cohen, who had been the club’s leader for the last two years.
Rodriguez had been a vice president of the club for about the last year, Cohen said, and had run a number of events for the Kiwanis.
“He happens to be a very, very nice guy,” Cohen said. “I think he will be an asset to the organization. He’s a good leader.”
Rodriguez received the Kiwanis’ “Member of the Year” award on Saturday, September 29 at the club’s comedy show.
