2007 Citizen of the Year: June Rosenthal

June Rosenthal was selected as the City of Stamford Citizen of the Year 2007 for her countless contributions to helping to improve the quality of life in the city through not only her professional expertise but also through her selfless support and participation in a myriad of Arts and Community Service organizations.

Professionally, she has operated Juner Properties since 1986, and is a Board Member and past President of the Stamford Board of Realtors.

HOWEVER…it is June’s devotion to and support of the community which we celebrate by bestowing her with Stamford’s most prestigious honor.

June serves the Stamford Museum and Nature Center as a board member, she is on the Leadership Council at Childcare Learning Center, on the advisory boards for the Stamford Land Conservation and Stamford Center for the Arts, and is a past Board Member of the Stamford Historical Society.

Organizations have come to consider June an “Ambassador to the Community” for her ongoing generous contributions and her efforts to raise the agencies’ visibility and to promote and solicit greater private sector funding.

For decades, June has also been an active supporter of the Stamford Public School system, and has generously supported the Stamford High Alcohol Free After Prom program. She understands that a well-functioning school system is essential to a successful community.

June and her husband Rolf, a WW II veteran have been married for 58 years, and resided in Stamford for 54 years. They have two children, Reid and Jan, and two grandchildren Jordan and Rhett.
