Village Square played host to Glen Cove’s Sixth Annual Senior Recognition day last Saturday, an event that attracted more than 100 people to the city’s downtown area. With the blazing sun, attendees were able to keep cool with Rita’s Ice and take in the sounds of jazz from the Les Stanco Group and the singing of the Golden Voices Choral from the Glen Cove Senior Center.
Along with Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi and members of the Glen Cove City Council, New York State Assemblyman Charles Lavine and Congressman Steve Israel both attended the afternoon’s ceremony to recognize seniors.
“Seniors have made enough sacrifices in their lifetimes,” Congressman Israel said, noting the rising costs of Medicare and prescription medications. “They should not have to make any more. It’s time to give them a break.”
Adrian Hersey was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions over the years and Dominic Pascucci with the Volunteer Award. Several local centenarians were also recognized.
The event sponsors included the City of Glen Cove, the Glen Cove Senior Center, the Downtown BID, and the city’s assisted living and nursing care facilities. All proceeds from the event benefit the Glen Cove Sage Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing services for the senior community.
