Judge Allen Smith, a 51-year member of the Rotary Club of Riverhead was remembered and well-honored at a dedication ceremony, October 24.  A plaque of our Town to be placed at the soon-to-be new Justice Court reads, “In honor and recognition of the immeasurable contributions of Honorable Allen M. Smith, Lifelong Public Servant to the Town of Riverhead.”

The event was well attended by current members of our club. 


Judge Smith served two terms as town attorney, two terms as town supervisor (1976-1979) and from 2000 until his death in 2020, he served as town justice. In 2010, he was honored by the Suffolk County Criminal Bar Association as “Judge of the Year.” He's well remembered as an active member of the Riverhead Fire Department for 46 years and for his 51 years as member of the Rotary Club of Riverhead.
