The City of Glen Cove Senior Recognition Day will be held on Saturday, May 10, in Village Square. The Senior Recognition Day Committee has made arrangements for a wonderful program that includes live music by the Les Stanco Group, a cornucopia of delicious food, and a variety of vendors, for seniors and their families to browse through.
Two Glen Cove residents will be honored—Carolyn Willson will be receiving this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award and Janina Jania has earned the Volunteer of the Year award. A highlight of the day will be the honoring of our community’s centenarians.
"To help another in need is as fulfilling for the giver as it is helpful to the receiver," Jania says. "When I was younger, I was helped in Germany as a refugee. And then again, when I escaped the war and came to the United States, there were very kind and compassionate people who reached out to assist me. So, I give back to repay all the kindness I received over these many years."
"I am very flattered to have been chosen to receive the Glen Cove Senior Day Lifetime Achievement Award for 2014," says Willson. "It has been a privilege to serve the City of Glen Cove and its residents for the past 47 years. During that time, through my positions at City Hall, the school system, the hospital, riding with EMS and serving on multiple community boards, I have worked and interacted with so many amazing, caring people. I appreciate this opportunity to acknowledge and thank all of them for their kindness and friendship. We have all been so fortunate to live in such a unique and diverse community."
Mayor Reginald A. Spinello, the Glen Cove City Council, and the Senior Recognition Day Committee look forward to welcoming everyone on May 10, in Village Square, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. In the event of rain, the festivities will be held at the Glen Cove Senior Center on Glen Street.

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.”
