Known for its classic grandeur and shimmering with golden décor, the Garden City Hotel was once again host to one of Long Island’s premier events, the Crystal Ball. Attending in support of Honorees Roberta and Bruce Waller, dedicated advocates of the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI), more than 350 guests enjoyed the elegant affair, which featured cocktails, fine dining, live music, dancing, and more. According to Gala Chairman Charles Rizzo, this year’s Crystal Ball raised more than $670,000 for the cure-focused work underway at the DRI.
Prevention is the word in the City of Glen Cove. On Tuesday, May 26, the city council adopted Glen Cove’s first Prevention Policy Statement, recognizing the principles and findings of comprehensive prevention science as a tool to keeping local youth safe.
SAFE, Inc.’s PRIDE Project Coalition Community Committee developed the statement and presented it for adoption to the council. Members of the committee were present as the council adopted the policy.
On Saturday, May 9, Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi and the City of Glen Cove hosted a wonderful Senior Day Celebration in Downtown Village Square. Seniors and their families were treated to an afternoon of friends, food and music, which featured a concert by the Senior Center Golden Voices Choral Group and the Senior Pops of Long Island. Senior Day included educational opportunities for seniors, health screenings, shopping, with over 20 vendors and special refreshments. Over 200 people from Glen Cove and our surrounding communities participated in the festivities of the day.
The City of Glen Cove Memorial Day Parade Committee, whose members represent the VFW James Donohue Post 347, American Legion Post 76, American Legion Young-Simmons Post 1765 and the Marine Corps League Globe and Anchor Detachment, invites the community to honor the memory of this country’s war veterans beginning on Sunday, May 24 and culminating on Memorial Day. The weekend will include decoration of the city’s war monuments, church memorial services and a commemorative parade. This year’s honoree is Samuel Esposito, a veteran of Vietnam. Our veterans ask us to pause and remember the countless heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom.
The City of Glen Cove Memorial Day Parade Committee has named Samuel J. Esposito as the 2009 Parade Honoree. The veteran bravely fought in Vietnam, saving the lives of men in his company during a brutal Tet Offensive battle. He was awarded the Bronze Star, the Army Commendation Medal with “V” for Valor and, ultimately, the Purple Heart.
The Memorial Day Parade will begin at noon on Memorial Day, May 25 and follows the 11 a.m. commemoration and presentations by veterans and local officials at Monument Park on the corner of North Lane and School Street.
Poverty and desolation have many faces. Imagine a 9-year-old girl, born with a severe club foot, barely able to walk because the sole of her foot was inverted. Or, a 60-year-old grandmother with severe arthritis who needed crutches to walk from her bed to a chair. In the poor African country of Equatorial Guinea, such distressing stories are not unusual. But for these two people, and 15 of their countrymen, hope now exists thanks to an experienced orthopedic surgical team from Glen Cove Hospital who traveled to this remote corner of the world to perform life-altering joint replacement surgeries, free of charge to their desperately poor patients.
At his first official village meeting after being sworn in as Sea Cliff’s mayor, Bruce Kennedy began to address several public concerns. Sea Cliff has a reputation as being a quiet and undisturbed village and the new mayor is taking proactive measures to keep it that way. Kennedy announced to the public on May 11 that he met with Inspector Williams, Commander of the 6th Precinct the week prior. Also in attendance during the conference were Deputy Commander McCarthy and Administrative Officer Sgt. Johnston. The mayor and authorities discussed cracking down on crime at the Sea Cliff Beach area. Incidents of graffiti and speeding have been known to occur at the site.
