Under blue skies and perfect parade temperatures Glen Cove residents came out to show their respect to our nation’s fallen soldiers at the annual Memorial Day parade. Residents gathered around Monument Park before the parade, where Retired Sergeant James Middletown (U.S. Army Air Corp 44-46) and chairman of the American Legion presided over the ceremony.
The tribute started with Mayor Reginald Spinello laying a wreath at the base of the monument. It continued, including prayer, a canon salute and a rifle salute done by veterans and officers of the Glen Cove Police Department.
A plaque was then given to honor Henry Banach, who served in the U.S. Navy from 1943 to 1946 in the Philippines as well as in Shanghai, China. The ceremony concluded with Mayor Spinello stating that a small town remembers its heroes. He reminded residents that on June 21 the U.S. Marines will be visiting Glen Cove to honor Double Medal of Honor winner Sgt. Dan Daly at Monument Park. He thanked Banach for being this year’s honoree and finished by saying that “freedom is not free.”
The parade followed, with veterans, civic and sports clubs, marching bands, police, fire departments and other organizations showing support for this important day. It should be noted that the Glen Cove Auxiliary Police did a great job setting the routes and making sure the parade went off smoothly.

Driving rain and an early start time did not deter 600 people who arrived at Crest Hollow Country Club recently to celebrate the Women’s Fund of Long Island’s 20th year and to honor four exceptional women.
The breakfast started with a meet and greet and a chance to showcase Women’s Fund contest winner Patti Hogarty, designer of “Women as Bamboo.” Inspired by her neighbor’s bamboo, she entered the contest drawing a design of the bamboo, which Ambalu Jewelers of Roslyn then turned into various pendants of which 40 percent of the profits would go to WFLI. Hogarty wrote a short essay comparing women to bamboo in that they are strong and can weather difficult storms, yet remain graceful and continue to grow sending out new shoots.
