SAFE, Police Conduct Pre-Prom Presentation

Sgt. Ryan Nardone brought a powerful pre-prom presentation to juniors at Glen Cove High School prior to the junior prom. SAFE’s Glen Cove PRIDE Project Coalition’s School Committee invited Sgt. Nardone to speak to students about the ramifications of Social Host law and of the dangers of underage drinking and driving. His objective, to keep kids safe on prom night and throughout the year is an objective that SAFE’s Coalition is closely committed to. The implementation of this prevention education lecture was a direct result of the 2012 Bach Harrison Prevention Needs Assessment which indicated that underage drinking continues to be a problem among Glen Cove youth.

 

Also handed out at the presentation was SAFE Rides cards. In response the 2012 Bach Harrison prevention needs survey, the Coalition’s Parent Committee decided to team up with Student Lifeline, a local organization working to reduce the risks of underage drinking and driving through issuing SAFE Rides cards. After the presentation, free cards were given to students enabling them to avoid potential danger by calling for a ride home rather than taking the chance of driving with a peer who has been drinking. Glen Cove High

School’s administrative staff were also present to answer questions the students had in anticipation of the junior prom and to support the message against underage drinking.

News

In an unusual change of venue, the Glen Cove City Council held its Sept. 23 meeting at the Webb Institute instead of City Hall. Before the meeting, more than 100 residents and the council members were given a tour of the college. 

 

Mayor Reginald Spinello said,  “Keith Michel [Webb President] suggested we could use the venue for the city and I thought having a city council meeting there would be an ideal way to show off the city’s precious history. I am hoping that the Holocaust Center will also allow us the opportunity next year.” He added, “There are a few other notable places in Glen Cove to have meetings like this to showcase the city.”

It was a country flavor at Sea Cliff Beach on the evening of Sunday, Sept. 14 as the alternative/country group Antigone Rising played in front of hundreds of local residents underneath the fading sunlight. The concert, which was originally slated for Saturday but rescheduled due to inclement weather, went off without 

a hitch as the ladies played a lot of their popular songs from different records. 


Sports

Glen Cove Junior Soccer got off on the right foot with its annual parade through the city ending at City Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 13. The parade had boys and girls from kindergarten to 10th grade march along with coaches and parents in their colorful uniforms. At the parade terminus, Glen Cove elected officials cheered the children on as they sat down on the field lines to hear the opening comments.

Hundreds of supporters turned out on Monday, Sept. 8 to golf, socialize with friends and dine beach-side at the 25th anniversary of SCO Family 

 of Services’ Howard F. Treiber Memorial Golf Open, SCO’s major fall fundraiser benefiting the 60,000 children, teens, adults and families served each year.
