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

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015. 

 

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.

Members of the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club and their families will be treated to a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal on Tuesday, Nov. 25, an event that has become an annual tradition for local families. 

 

This will be the 14th year that Andrea Correale, the president of Elegant Affairs Caterers, has donated this festive dinner, which in the past has served more 250 adults and children with a full turkey with all the trimmings followed by the always-fun ice cream bar. 

 

I can’t even believe it’s been 14 years,” says Correale. “And so many of the same people come back year after year.”
