Groundbreaking For ‘Yellow Cottage’

Historic building donated to city for new youth foundation

After years of planning, a groundbreaking was held last week to celebrate the preservation of one of Glen Cove’s historic buildings, known as the “Yellow Cottage,” a final holdover on Cottage Row from days past. The cottage is being donated by the Canarick family in memory of Morris and Rae Canarick. The building is being moved onto city property, where it will house the Sidney Canarick Foundation, a nonprofit with a mission to benefit the youth of Glen Cove through sports.

Founder and CEO/treasurer of the Sidney Canarick Foundation, Paul Canarick, was joined at the groundbreaking by the foundation’s trustees: City Councilman Michael Famiglietti, president; Judge Richard McCord, vice president; and County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton, secretary.

Also joining the event were Glen Cove Mayor Ralph Suozzi, City Council members Nick DiLeo, Anthony Jimenez and former Councilman Sean Dwyer.

The Canarick family members present were: Susan Canarick, Jack Canarick, Paul Canarick, Debbie McAlla, Ross McAlla, David McAlla, Tim Wasp, Natalie Meyer, Richard Meyer, Alex Meyer and Amanda Giambrone.

The Canarick family has owned the Yellow Cottage for almost a century. Paul Canarick is also donating the expense of moving the historic building from its current location to its destination on a city parcel around the corner.

Paul arranged for this donation and the new foundation as a way to honor his father, Sidney, who was an active member of the Glen Cove community, particularly a major proponent of youth sports programs.

“My dad was a big athlete. He played football in Glen Cove, and went on to play for Bucknell. He was the winning quarterback of the first Orange Bowl,” shared Paul. “After the service, he became very involved with recreation in Glen Cove. He started many of our programs. So this is something to carry on what he did. We’ll be supporting sports for Glen Cove’s kids.”

News

Richie Cannata may be best known for his song credits but his name will become a part of history this week. Cannata, a 28-year resident and business owner of Glen Cove, will be inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame on Thursday, Oct. 23 at The Paramount in Huntington.

 

As a member of the Billy Joel Band, the saxophone player was propelled to fame in 1975 when he joined the band and played on songs including “New York State of Mind” and “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.”

If Heather Lehrman is not yet a familiar face to local pet owners, her name is likely to soon become a household name to dog lovers and families with young children, as her children’s book, Bullied at the Dog Park, was released this week. The book is based on a real-life incident with her own dog, Herbie, and fans will have a chance to meet her and Herbie at a book signing at Petco in Glen Cove on Saturday, Oct. 25.

 

“I wanted to help get the message out in my own way about the effects of bullying,” says Lehrman, a resident of Great Neck. “This book teaches children valuable lessons about treating all dogs (and people) with respect, and the importance of simple kindness.”


Sports

On Tuesday, Oct. 7, the Glen Cove Finley Middle School opened their football season with a home game against Thompson Middle School. The game opened with the Glen Cove offense going on a nice drive, which saw quarterback Mike Vaughan score on a 30-yard touchdown run. 

Six North Shore High School athletes competed in the 2014 JCC Maccabi Games and led the New York Delegation to victory, winning gold. The students included Jacob Abramowitz, Brett Bennett, Drew Jacklin, Ben Lerner, Josh Mandell, and Ben Saltzman. The Maccabi Games is a week-long Olympic tournament for Jewish teenage athletes, ages 14-16 years old. It is held in numerous venues across the United States. 

 

Bennett proudly said, “Competing in the Maccabi Games was a unique and thrilling experience for me. It not only was a highly competitive basketball tournament, but it also emphasized the importance of building strong values such as good sportsmanship, leadership, team unity, compassion and respect.

This, for me, was an experience of a lifetime!”
