Hundreds of youngsters across Long Island made a big splash last month -- jumping in at six YMCA locations for 30 minutes of swimming and safety instruction taking part in “The World’s Largest Swim Lesson.”
The YMCA of Long Island hosted the simultaneous swimming lesson, in coordination with the nationwide “World’s Largest Swim Lesson,” to stress the life-saving importance of teaching children to swim at an early age and to provide water safety tips and techniques. YMCA facilities in Bay Shore, Glen Cove, Patchogue, Brookhaven, Huntington and East Hampton took part in the World’s Largest Swim Lesson, which attracted an estimated 35,000 youngsters across the country.
Since 1985 Nassau County’s Mitchel Field in Uniondale has hosted the Empire State games for the Physically Challenged. The games have provided Olympic style competition for thousands of athletes from all over New York State. In December of 2010 the games were cancelled due to budget constraints facing the county.

Despite the high heat and humidity that lingered long into the evening of June 24, an atmosphere of contagious enthusiasm was evident as the 130 members of LI-Kick gathered at the upper fields of Glen Cove’s John Maccarone Memorial Stadium to compete in the playoff games of Long Island’s first and undoubtedly most successful adult kickball league.
LI-Kick is the brainchild of 27-year-old Sal Farruggia who recently moved to Glen Cove and was looking for a way to meet new people in his new community.
On Monday, July 22 at 7:30 a.m., the 25th Annual John Maccarone Hall of Fame Golf Tournament will be held at the Glen Cove Golf Course. All the money raised from this tournament goes to the John Maccarone Scholarship Fund, which was set up in honor of the city’s late recreation supervisor and founder of the Glen Cove Hall of Fame. To date approximately $80,000 has been awarded to outstanding academic-athlete students. This year, as a result of the 2012 golf tournament revenues, six $1,000 scholarships were awarded to outstanding seniors from the Class of 2013.
Hooray! One of the best signs the school year is coming to a close is Field Day, and last month the fields at Friends Academy were swarming with Red, White and Blue as the Middle Schoolers romped through some friendly intramural competition.
Red won the day, but that didn’t dampen the fun for White or Blue. “This is way more fun than sitting inside,” said sixth-grader Nico Santiago. “I’m so pumped. No homework for three months!”
The leading Glen Cove law firm of Mejias, Milgrim & Alvarado has signed on once again to be the presenting sponsor of the 30th annual edition of the Runner’s Edge Long Island Women’s 5 Kilometer Run, which will be held on the roads of Farmingdale on Saturday, July 13.
Women of all ages and levels of ability are invited to participate in the run. Among those who will be participating this year is Randi Milgrim, a partner in Mejias, Milgrim & Alvarado, who has set her sights on scoring well in front of her 2012 finishing time of 35:02.
Congratulations to Maggie Reid and Jeri Cavagnaro, both residents of Locust Valley, who came home with awards from the 22nd annual edition of the David Lerner Associates Long Island Police Appreciation 5 Kilometer Run, which was held in Eisenhower Park on the evening of June 6.
The Glen Cove third- and fourth-graders participated in the PAL LaxFest in Farmingdale and finished up their season by losing a tough one-goal game to Seaford.
It appeared the “Wee Knights” of Glen Cove outplayed Seaford, but they came up just short of victory losing 8 - 7. The effort was certainly there from the Knights who played great defense, came up with ground balls and backed up the shots on goal all game long.
