On Sept. 24, the Glen Cove HS Class of 1960 celebrated their 50th reunion with a gala dinner dance at San Souci in Sea Cliff. Over 120 graduates and guests danced to the “Oldies but Goodies” music of the “Acchords.” It was a weekend of celebrating that took those attending from San Souci on Friday, to the Soundview on Saturday for lunch, to Walls Wharf for dinner and finally to the Huntington Hilton for breakfast. All of the events were eagerly attended and a good time was had by all.
It’s that wonderful time of year again as downtown Glen Cove puts on its holiday spirit. Kick off the season at the Village Square on Saturday, Nov. 27 as the Glen Cove Business Improvement District gets ready for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting, featuring this year’s gift of a tree from the family of Eugene and Liz Merkel, and their son William. The fun begins at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday and lasts till 5:30 p.m., when the tree is officially lit. It is rumored Santa will appear to listen to the secret wishes of children and sit for a photo. There will be a horse and carriage ride, and live music will be playing for any and all to sing along to.
A few active community members in Sea Cliff have created a new way to bring attention and aid to local causes that are either not addressed by existing organizations or whose needs go beyond what current efforts can handle.
On the evening of Nov. 8, the Village of Sea Cliff’s Board of Trustees assembled for a regular meeting in Village Hall.

Adjustments will also be made to stop absorption of rain water. Work is set to begin in a few weeks.
After holding several hearings on the matter, the Glen Cove City Council voted at its most recent meeting to restrict parking in the Thompson Park area. Residents there claim that too many people coming to Action Motors and other businesses near that neighborhood park on their streets all day.
Parking restrictions, therefore, on LaMarcus Avenue, Highfield Road, Marietta Road and Arbor Place are now amended to prevent non-residents from using these streets. A No Parking rule will now be in effect from 2 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both sides of these streets.

This showcasing of local talent is a unique opportunity for community members to enjoy, free of charge, an evening of art and music. All are encouraged not to miss the chance for culture and entertainment right in our own backyard.

The Nassau County Legislature continued a hearing on County Executive Edward P. Mangano’s 2011 proposed budget that went on all day Friday, Oct. 29, and late into Saturday night, eventually passing the $2.6 billion plan along party lines with Halloween approaching and opposing lawmakers accusing that the budget’s “no tax increase” label was just a costume.
On Wednesday, Oct. 20, Mayor Ralph Suozzi, along with the Glen Cove City Council, and several other representatives from the city of Glen Cove, hosted a town hall style meeting at the Landing School. The up-close and informal format of the meeting allowed for a discussion on many of the issues surrounding the Landing neighborhood.
While the most discussed and debated issues at the meeting were taxes and the proposed term length changes for Glen Cove’s mayor and council after the 2011 election, there were several other hot issues specific to the Landing, which included illegal housing, the waterfront, and developments such as Lee Gray Ct.
