Francis "Tiny" Murphy Civic Award

Because Tiny Murphy exemplified the qualities of a good public citizen, and because it was his habit to see that citizens of the Town of Long Island were publicly recognized for their contributions, the Long Island Civic Association has established a Civic Award in his name to be presented once a year at a public event such as the Town Meeting.
