Go Red for Women

February 5 will mark the sixth annual American Heart Association National Wear Red Day for Women to raise awareness that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 health threat facing women today. Unfortunately, most people still do not know that heart disease and stroke are the leading causes of death for women. These two diseases kill more than 480,000 women in the United States every year; more than the next five causes of death combined, including all cancers. On Long Island, more than 5,600 women die of heart disease and stroke each year.

“I would like to inform my constituents that Friday, Feb. 5 is National Wear Red day! This is a special day for Americans across the nation because it not only brings awareness to cardiovascular disease but showcases support and solidarity for women with heart disease,” McKevitt stated.

The program will held at the Garden City Hotel and Supervisor Murray’s topic will be “The Development of Business in Hempstead Town.” Reservations can be made by calling the Chamber of Commerce at 746-7724.

Shopping Carts

Your village has spent a good deal of time and money to beautify our central business district in order to make it as appealing to residents and businesses. Our local food markets on Seventh Street and Franklin Avenue have also made a significant investment in purchasing high-quality shopping carts for our use and convenience while shopping in their stores. Regrettably, these carts are not being returned to the prescribed areas by the shoppers and are being left within the parking fields and in the areas of the apartment houses.

In consideration of your neighbors, merchants and community, I urge residents to return these carts to their respective stores. Please don’t place the village in the position to have to expend manpower and time to impound the shopping carts. The residents’ effort will go a long way to keeping our village the beautiful place that we all want it to be.

Board of Trustees Meeting Schedule

The next regularly scheduled Board of Trustees meetings will be on Thursday, Feb. 4 and on Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 8 p.m.

I encourage residents to periodically utilize the village’s website for information regarding the village’s operations, as well as items of seasonal and special interest. The address is www.gardencityny.net. For your convenience, listed on the village’s home page under the Heading of Administration is a link that lists the various Village Board and Commissions along with their meeting dates and agendas.
