Club honors Andy Hoffman as Citizen of the Year
Andy Hoffman, 2017 East Windsor Rotary Citizen of the Year



On June 15, 2017, the Rotary Club of East Windsor honored well known, and well respected, resident Andy Hoffman as its Citizen of the Year. A pioneer in space travel design, Mr. Hoffman served on the original Hamilton team to develop Apollo spacesuit and served on the Apollo 13 Recovery Team. He retired as an executive from Hamilton Sundstrand. Even though he spent a tremendous amount of time dedicated to his profession, he found opportunities to volunteer with civic organizations, as well as town government. Not to mention, he has enjoyed a long lasting marriage with his wife Pat. Proclamations from the State Legislature, as well as the Town of East Windsor, recited his many accomplishments over the years. It was a pleasure and honor for the club to bestow this title upon Mr. Hoffman; he is a great example of service above self.
