Mayor Holzkamp Greets Safavieh Home Furnishings
Earlier this year, the Yaraghi family purchased the former Swezey's building and promptly began a complete renovation of this significant retail space in the city's downtown. At the time of purchase, Arash Yaraghi said, "We saw Glen Cove as a thriving, prospering city headed toward the right direction. Jumping on that bandwagon and adding to that momentum, we felt, was beneficial to us and will be good for downtown Glen Cove."

The North Shore varsity volleyball team played three matches this week as the season begins to wind down. Last Monday, the Vikings played the first-place Plainview JFK team. In a tight match, we lost three games to one. On Tuesday, we followed the Plainview match with a four game win versus East Meadow. After losing the first game, we roared back to win three straight games. On Friday, we went to Hicksville and there clinched a third-place finish in League II (the second toughest league in Nassau County). We beat Hicksville in three straight games and improved our record to 9-6.
