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

In an unusual change of venue, the Glen Cove City Council held its Sept. 23 meeting at the Webb Institute instead of City Hall. Before the meeting, more than 100 residents and the council members were given a tour of the college.
Mayor Reginald Spinello said, “Keith Michel [Webb President] suggested we could use the venue for the city and I thought having a city council meeting there would be an ideal way to show off the city’s precious history. I am hoping that the Holocaust Center will also allow us the opportunity next year.” He added, “There are a few other notable places in Glen Cove to have meetings like this to showcase the city.”

The concert, which was originally slated for Saturday but rescheduled due to inclement weather, went off without
a hitch as the ladies played a lot of their popular songs from different records.
