On Saturday June 14, several hundred Glen Cove residents were able to receive information about local services and programs that promote family health, family unity, and a substance abuse free family environment. The 7th Annual Family Awareness Day sponsored by SAFE’s Glen Cove PRIDE Project Coalition was a tremendous success.
On behalf of SAFE’s Glen Cove PRIDE Project Coalition, we wish to thank all who helped to make this possible: City of Glen Cove Community Development Agency (CDA), Parks and Recreation, City Hall, Emergency Medical Services and Fire Department, the Tobacco Action Coalition of Long Island, Kiwanis Club of Glen Cove, Glen Cove Day Care Center, chiropractor Maxine Mayreis, psychotherapist Gabriela Weinberg-Gitlin, GMA Martial Arts, Economic Opportunity Council (EOC), Cove Sports Academy and Nassau County Council of Girl Scouts.
Operation Neighborhood Pride: In conjunction with our Police Department, we have launched “Operation Neighborhood Pride,” a listening tour of our city. After mapping out a plan of action with Chief Whitton, Deputy Chief MacDonald, and Lieutenant Ortiz, we outlined a plan and started this project two weeks ago. We intend to visit every neighborhood in Glen Cove because there is no better way to get information about what’s going on in an area than to ask the people who live there. We chose the Landing as our starting point because of recent events and we are looking forward to hearing from all our residents regarding quality of life concerns that may exist in their area.
Recently the Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse Club celebrated its 20 Year Anniversary with a “Knight –Out” Fundraiser at the Knights of Columbus. We would like to acknowledge all the people and local businesses that continue to support our program. A portion of the proceeds raised will go to our annual scholarship awards given to Glen Cove High School seniors. Eligible are students that played in the Jr. Lacrosse program for a minimum of one year and continued with high school lacrosse and then on to attend college with the hopes of continuing their lacrosse careers.
After reading Ms. Judith Maher Frederic’s letter to the editor that appeared in the June 4 Glen Cove Record Pilot, it was difficult to decide whether it was compassion for the insufficient effort at reasoning with faulty premises and non sequitur arguments that one should feel, or contempt for the pedestrian attempt at camouflaging malicious misinterpretations with the silly and trite “head scratching” expedient as an introduction.
To everyone who fought to save the rehab section of the Glen Cove Hospital:
I’ve recently been recovering from a rather long illness which required two weeks at the Glen Cove Hospital Rehab.
Recently there have been many tragic situations — unexplainable actions by desperate, stressed, mentally ill and suicidal people.
We, as a nation, seem to forget the millions of poor, needy and ill citizens. We pass by homeless veterans, many of us without a thought of helping them. We see runaway teenagers and we ignore them. Our leaders, so self righteous in their speeches about the American people, then with their next vote, remove millions from SNAP benefits.
I’m writing to inform readers of a simple and effective step we can take to protect our seniors from identity theft — removing Social Security numbers from Medicare cards.
One in five Americans above the age of 65 fall victim to financial fraud. In New York alone, approximately half a million seniors have been prey for scammers.
On June 2, the Glen Cove SAGE Foundation, Inc. (Senior Activity Generational Endowment) held its annual Golf Classic at the Glen Cove Golf Course followed by dinner at The Metropolitan. We were blessed with a beautiful day and all agreed that it was an amazing event. Thanks to our co-chairs, Linda Thompson and Pat Parmelee, the SAGE Board of Directors, Carol Waldman, the Golf Committee, all of our volunteers, our local shop and restaurant owners, and the Glen Cove Golf Course staff, the event was flawless.
Clean Water Initiative and Shoreline Trail for Port and Roslyn As the “waterfront district” legislator, I am very pleased to announce that I have been pushing for clean water projects to benefit Port Washington and Roslyn, and they have recently been approved at the Nassau County Legislature.
Through a Nassau County Environmental Bond Act, Nassau is supporting some really great improvements through the Town of North Hempstead aimed at stopping pollution and revitalizing our Hempstead Harbor and Manhasset Bay shoreline.
Wonders never cease in Sea Cliff. And that is but one of the great reasons to live here. The latest feel-good story about our one-square-mile village is about as short and sweet as most of those before. But, of course, just as fulfilling.
This one took place when Sea Cliff’s Library Board held it’s monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 13. As promised, chairman Frank Murray added a last minute item to the agenda in order to address the concern of a 40-year resident who took a tried and true Sea Cliff shortcut to reach him: a note left on the desk of his wife, Barbara Murray, the deputy court clerk in the village hall, who made a hand delivery.
