2017年6月11日, 大颈华人协会(GNCA)在华盛顿港Manorhaven海滨公园举办了第四届夏季烧烤会,与会者将近400人。在这个华裔社区的年度盛会上, GNCA对过去一年的工作进行了总结,并举行了董事会改选。GNCA董事会由12名成员组成,每一个董事的任期通常为两年,每年有一半的董事职位参与选举。今年大部分在任董事寻求连任,由许晨馨(ChenXin Xu)和陈肇业(Steven Chen)离任带来的空缺职位由两名新入选董事填补,她们是李晓(Melody Li )和张坚宣(Jane Zhang)。 
今年GNCA还颁发了第二届王张莉莉社区贡献奖(Lily Wang Community Service Award)。王张莉莉社区贡献奖是由已故GNCA董事王张莉莉女士家人发起、社会各界人士参与捐赠,以及通过大颈华人协会评选并颁发的社区服务奖,用以纪念王张丽莉莉女士服务社区的精彩的一生,以及推动更多华人参与社区服务。每年协会评选1-3名获奖者,每一位获奖者将被授予250美元的捐赠奖金,可以捐赠给他们指定的机构或组织。今年有三位社区志愿者脱颖而出,他们是Joanne Chan, 张弛和张坚宣 (Jane Zhang)。 
Joanne Chan曾担任UPTC(United Parent-Teacher Council)主席等职位,多年来她与大颈学区的各个组织建立了良好关系,促进了家长与学校的沟通。特别在推动华裔家长参与社区活动上,她做出了重要的贡献。Jane Zhang 在过去的一年开创了大颈信息平台网站,她每周定时向大颈华人社区的微信群发布资讯,为大家了解社区新闻和融入社区生活提供方便。张弛是2017年GNCA春节联欢晚会的总编导。今年春晚和往年不一样的地方是,张弛组织并策划将晚会节目录制编辑成精美的视频,方便大家分享和留念。春晚视频的在线观看地址是: https://youtu.be/yA3Huu2XLAU
今年烧烤活动也不同于往年,除了保留大家喜闻乐见的游戏项目比如拔河比赛以外,GNCA这次专门为大家交换买卖二手物品开辟了场地。其中,由20多名小朋友组织参与的义卖活动最受关注。他们最后将义卖的收入全部捐赠给了王张莉莉社区贡献奖基金。
不少纳苏郡和纽约地区政要和社会热心人士也参与了本次盛会或是致电问候,其中包括纳苏郡审计长George Maragos,纽约州议员Anthony D’Urso, 纳苏郡议员Ellen W. Birnbaum, 北汉普斯特镇议员Anna Kaplan,大颈公园区区长Daniel M. Nachmanoff, 华南理工大学美国校友会会长王文海,中山大学美东校友会会长李超华,和中山医美东校友会会长梁卫宁等。其中最引人注目的嘉宾是新当选大颈教育委员会董事的施骏(Jeff Shi)。本次活动是施骏在5月份当选以来首次在公众活动中露面,他感谢了大家对他的投票和支持,并且表示要像张王莉莉一样从小事做起,和大家一道加强和拓展华裔和其他各族裔及宗教团体的联系,增进相互了解和信任。
