This year has been the most successful drive so far, and thanks must be given to the Glen Cove Youth Bureau, the North Shore East Norwich Rotary Club as well as to all who have and continue to donate school supplies. Without the Youth Bureau’s organizing, coordinating, and distributing efforts, the Fill a Bookbag Drive would not happen, and there would be countless numbers of school age children without the essential supplies needed to be successful and productive students.
The Youth Bureau will collect school supplies until Sept. 15 at 128B Glen Street – 671-4600, so if you haven’t had a chance yet, the following supplies are still desperately needed:
Dry Erase Markers
4 Oz. School Glue
Crayons Box of 24
Wide Washable Markers
Hand-held Pencil Sharpeners
Thank you Glen Cove for coming together to support our kids!
Nassau County Legislature, 18 LD
I request that my fellow Glen Cove voters consider the following questions:
1. How is my voice heard in Glen Cove government?
2. Why don’t we jointly vote for our mayor and deputy mayor?
3. Why is the mayor a legislator and a chief executive?
On July 16, my best friend Mike Galluccio passed away. Mike was 51 years old and had his whole life ahead of him. If you’ve never had the privilege of meeting him or getting to know him, you missed out on a great guy. I have been friends with Mike for over 40 years.
For the Waterfront Project
As a local resident of the City of Glen Cove, and a taxpayer, I wish to inform the city officials of my support for the RXR Glen Isle waterfront revitalization. I think it will be a boon to the city’s tax coffers as well as providing much needed jobs to the city.
It has been way too long for there not to have been something done with that prime piece of real estate. There could be such a renaissance to this fine city. Right now there is not much for people to come and spend their time and money here in Glen Cove. The city is located too far north of the L.I.E, and there is only one (although very nice) hotel in the area. People need a reason to venture here. Although, there are things that locals can enjoy and learn from within the city limits. There are the beaches, the Glen Cove Golf Course, Garvies Point Museum, N.C. Holocaust Memorial, nature preserves, the stores downtown, music festivals at Morgan Park and downtown, some magnificent places of worship, and the fabulous restaurants. But, there still needs to be something more to draw the distant visitors. I believe that if we get this waterfront project done along with the ferry from NYC (hopefully other destinations, too) done we would see a much needed increase in revenue for the city. Maybe some relief for some of the highest tax paying people in the country.
It is also a great time for the city to be planning for this project in anticipation for the market return in the (hopefully) near future. I hope to see a shovel in the ground soon.
The fund drive committee of the Glen Cove Fire Department would like to thank all the residents of the City of Glen Cove for their generous donations to our fund drive this year. We know times are tough for everyone. Also, as a reminder, the fire department fund drive is done by mail only. If someone calls you looking for a donation, please call the firehouse at 676-0366 and give us as much information as you can about the caller. Thank you again for your donations.

The abundance of summer rain is bringing an abundance of mosquitoes. However, there are ways to control these disease-carrying pests. Here are some tips from Hicks Nurseries, located in Westbury, on how to repel mosquitoes by using these organic methods.
First, prevent mosquitoes from breeding.
Get rid of sources of standing water such as tins cans, plastic containers and old tires. Change bird bath water at least twice a week. If you have a pond, stock it with fish that eat mosquitoes and keep the edges clear of vegetation and debris.
On Monday, July 27 the 21st Annual John Maccarone Hall of Fame Golf Tournament was held at the Glen Cove Golf Course. All the money raised from this tournament goes to the John Maccarone Scholarship Fund and to date, approximately $45,000 has been awarded to outstanding academic-athletic students. This year, as a result of the 2008 golf tournament revenues, we awarded $4,500 in scholarships to six graduating seniors at Glen Cove High School.
