Letter: Gratitude For Storm Response

On behalf of the Glen Cove Senior Citizen Advisory Council, I would like to take this opportunity to gratefully acknowledge Mayor Ralph Suozzi, Deputy Mayor Maureen Basdavanos, Glen Cove Senior Center Director Carol Waldman, their dedicated staff, and the City of Glen Cove first responders for their valiant work to ensure the safety and well-being of the citizenry of Glen Cove and surrounding communities during and after catastrophic Hurricane Sandy.

We consistently recognize that Glen Cove is an extraordinary city, but the events of Oct. 27 and beyond, as exemplified by the people we are acknowledging, as well as countless unnamed others, have proven that Glen Cove has the heart of a lion. We thank them for their tireless work and bravery in the face of this devastating storm. 

We stand in awe of their humanity, commitment, and yes, love for the people not only of Glen Cove, but, indeed, for anyone who needed help during that trying period. Thank you one and all.

Elizabeth Hausner, Chair

The completion of eight interpretive signs on Hempstead Harbor now makes it fun and easy for area residents to learn about Hempstead Harbor. The signs posted  in Roslyn, Roslyn Harbor, Cedarmere, Glenwood Landing , Sea Cliff and Glen Cove give easy to read information on the harbor’s history, nature,  environmental impact and water shed protection.

On Sunday, Sept. 21, the only place to be for lovers of local music is the Homestead in Oyster Bay, where a full day of live music is planned at GlenFest featuring 25 different performances. The lineup includes big names like Richie Cannata to Sea Cliff mainstays Kris Rice and Chicken Head to up-and-comers like Matt Grabowski and Lisa Vetrone.

 

GlenFest is the brainchild of Dave Losee, 53, of Glen Cove, who plays in the Crosstown Blues Band.


Sports

Hundreds of supporters turned out on Monday, Sept. 8 to golf, socialize with friends and dine beach-side at the 25th anniversary of SCO Family 

 of Services’ Howard F. Treiber Memorial Golf Open, SCO’s major fall fundraiser benefiting the 60,000 children, teens, adults and families served each year. The event began with brunch and shotgun tee offs at Meadow Brook Club in Jericho and The Creek Club in Locust Valley and concluded with dinner beach-side at The Creek. 

More than 475 runners from all across Long Island came together on Aug. 30, for the tenth annual Companions in Courage one-mile run. 

 

For Daniel Badalament, 71, of Glen Cove, the Main Street Mile was just a warm up. Running for the past 57 years, Badalament said the mile long sprint is a great workout and helps him better prepare for the more rigorous races. 

 

“Monday, I run the 5-mile [Labor Day Run] in long beach,” he said, “so this helps loosen me up.”
