Dromm Pays Tribute To Late Community Leader



On December 19, Councilmember Daniel Dromm (l.) honored the life and legacy of the late Lilia Moreno with an official City Council proclamation for her outstanding service and enduring contributions to the Jackson Heights community. Dromm presented her husband, Ralph Moreno (r.), with the posthumous award at a ceremony held at the Elmhurst-Jackson Heights Senior Center on the occasion of the first anniversary of Lilia’s passing. Both Lilia and Ralph shared a passion for community service. In 1971, they joined the 93rd Street Block Association where they remained very active members. About 20 years later, when Ralph became president of the association, he transformed it into the not-for-profit, Jackson Heights Action Group. Lilia oversaw the Action Group’s office and facilities until 2011. Lilia’s background as a teacher helped her provide much needed programs for many people, particularly new immigrants.
