The Bayside Hills Civic Association will honor outgoing 111th Precinct community affairs officer Gary Poggiali at a meeting later this month.

Poggiali, who has been with the northeast Queens precinct for more than a decade, will retire next month.

“He’s been with us for 10 years and has always been available for redirecting traffic during our big events, such as the holiday lighting ceremony, Sept. 11 and Memorial Day,” said Michael Feiner, president of the civic. “He’s an all-around great guy and a pleasure to work with.”

The civic will give Poggiali a plaque during the group’s meeting, which will be held at 8 p.m. on Jan. 28 at the Colonial Church of Bayside, located at 55-02 217th St.

Jennifer Manley, of the Queens Public Library, will also be at the meeting to discuss the community’s newly renovated library.

The group is also expected to talk about illegal buildings in the community during the meeting.
