Glen Cove Celebrates Memorial Day

Over the Memorial Day weekend, there were several opportunities to celebrate and honor war veterans. Events began on Sunday, May 26, with the decoration of the war monument on Ford Street and Forest Ave, the St. Rocco monument, and the monument at Elm Avenue and Frost Pond Road, followed by a memorial service at the First Presbyterian Church in Glen Cove.

 

On Monday, Memorial Day commemorations began at Monument Park, where Bernard Farnan was honored, followed by the parade.

The celebrations were organized by the City of Glen Cove Memorial Day Parade Committee, whose members represent the VFW James Donahue Post 347, American Legion Post 76, American Legion Young-Simmons Post 1765 and the Marine Corps League Globe and Anchor Detachment.


News

Driving rain and an early start time did not deter 600 people who arrived at Crest Hollow Country Club recently to celebrate the Women’s Fund of Long Island’s 20th year and to honor four exceptional women. 

 

The breakfast started with a meet and greet and a chance to showcase Women’s Fund contest winner Patti Hogarty, designer of “Women as Bamboo.” Inspired by her neighbor’s bamboo, she entered the contest drawing a design of the bamboo, which Ambalu Jewelers of Roslyn then turned into various pendants of which 40 percent of the profits would go to WFLI. Hogarty wrote a short essay comparing women to bamboo in that they are strong and can weather difficult storms, yet remain graceful and continue to grow sending out new shoots. 

Veterans, police, residents and elected officials turned out for the renaming of Route 107/ Arterial Highway for Glen Cove’s most honored hero, Sergeant Major Daniel Joseph Daly, in a ceremony that took place on Wednesday, Nov. 12.
