The Boy Scouts of America Connecticut Yankee Council will honor Vincent M. Marino, Esq., a principal of Cohen and Wolf, P.C., at their annual Good Scout Luncheon on Tuesday, May 28, starting at 11:30 a.m.
This year’s Good Scout Luncheon will be chaired by Orange First Selectman James Zeoli. The event will take place at Costa Azzurra. Proceeds will benefit the leadership development and values-based programs of the Boy Scouts of America Connecticut Yankee Council.
“In recognition of the importance that leadership plays in our mission and community, we’re especially honored to present the 2013 Good Scout Award to Vincent Marino, whose values reflect that of Scouting’s programs. He represents the spirit of the Good Scout Award which ‘recognizes leadership in business, industry, government, education, and social work in the local community, state and nation,’” said Michael Abrahamson, Council president.
“It is an honor to receive such an award from an organization whose service mission to prepare young people for life has been a constant positive presence in our local community for over 100 years,” Marino said.
Marino is co-chair of Cohen and Wolf’s Municipal Group, and a member of the Litigation and Bankruptcy groups. He presently serves as town attorney for the Town of Orange.
In addition he serves as the Governor’s representative on the Policy Board of the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority and a member of the Connecticut Commission on Compensation of Elected officials and Judges. Mr. Marino also serves on the Board of Directors of the Orange Chamber of Commerce and is a founding member of Saving Orange Residents In Need, a local charity serving his community.
In 2009, he was named a Rising Star by Business New Haven. In 2004, he received a prestigious New Leaders of the Law Award. Sponsored by the Connecticut Law Tribune, the awards program honors Connecticut lawyers who demonstrate leadership, innovation and dedication within their profession and communities.
Marino received his B.A. in 1993 from the State University of New York at Binghamton and his J.D. in 1996 from Quinnipiac University School of Law.
