Last month the Glen Cove SAGE Foundation, Inc. sent out an appeal letter to all Glen Cove residents and businesses requesting your tax-deductible donation so that we may continue to expand our assistance for enhanced programs and services for the Glen Cove Senior Center. This assistance is particularly important during these trying economic times.
Your dollars have helped us provide additional funding for a yearlong series of Life Long Learning programs; blood pressure screening and health and wellness classes; data collection required for government funding and adult day services for the frail elderly.

First Mike Dukakis and then John Kerry made the same mistake when running for president. They tried to take the high road and ignored their critics. As a result, the impression that was left was that their critics must be right, otherwise, they would have set the record straight. So, let me again set the record straight.

Banking on the fact that Sea Cliff and its surrounding neighbors would embrace the ridiculous idea of a three-hour round of golf through its parks, ball fields and even private properties (over 40, in fact), we put it together and it worked! Eighteen hundred dollars was raised for the Sea Cliff Library and another $300 for the Sea Cliff Fire Dept. Associated Press liked the idea enough that they did a national story on it!

Last weekend, the Business Improvement District began its Downtown Sounds Music Series on Friday evening July 3, with the music of Uppercut.

On Thursday, June 25th, the sun peeked through the clouds and shined upon Robert M. Finley Middle School where the PTA hosted its first annual Tournament Day. The day had been planned as a celebration of a year of hard work by students, teachers and parents alike. We were not disappointed! The lower field of the Finley Middle School was bustling with physical, yet fun activities for the children, while parents prepared a schoolwide barbecue lunch for all.

On May 9, Glen Cove celebrated Senior Day in its downtown area. The day was to honor all the wonderful senior citizens in our city, with this year’s special honoree being Joan Meehan. It was an outstanding day!
The mayor’s Senior Citizen Advisory Council wishes to thank Mayor Ralph Suozzi, Deputy Mayor Maureen Basdavanos, the entire city council, and those who served on the Senior Day Committee. Your efforts were greatly appreciated.
On behalf of our seniors, we acknowledge, with gratitude, the on-going support of our city officials, as we constantly pursue ways to improve the lives of our senior population.

The long Glen Cove school board meeting held this week was a relief when it finally ended. It was the last night for board members Doug Brown and Kurt Schmeller, and not a minute too soon. As a final insult to the people of Glen Cove, with only 10 days left in their terms, they exercised their legal right, and voted for things which will cost the taxpayers dearly and unnecessarily. Rather than do the honorable thing and postpone the vote, so that the two new board members, who take office next Wednesday, could make decisions for the entire coming year, they took it upon themselves to do just what they have steadfastly done for the past eight years, and voted for whatever the administration suggests. To quote Gilbert and Sullivan: “I always voted at my party’s call, and I never thought of thinking for myself at all.”

On Saturday evening, June 6, the Glen Cove High School DECA and Student Senate Clubs arranged and facilitated the 24th Annual Intergenerational Senior Ball, “That’s What Friends are For”. With the supportive leadership of DECA Advisor Deborah Pearsall and Student Senate Advisor Ellen Lynch, the senior citizen participants partied and danced the night away in true “senior ball” fashion.

Fighting Cancer in the Ring
I have always been ready to fight the good fight for a worthy cause, and on Sunday, May 31 I had the opportunity to literally do just that as a participant in Alexandra Goidel’s Bat Mitzvah project. A North Shore Middle School student, Alexandra studies mixed martial arts under the tutelage of Derek Panza at Panza Mixed Martial Arts in Glen Cove. When it came time for Alexandra to choose a “mitzvah,” or “good deed,” component of her celebration, she and her mother Wendy brought to Derek the idea of combining Alexandra’s passion for MMA with her desire to raise money for charities close to her heart. Derek was thrilled with the idea and suggested a competition in which he would spar 100 straight rounds with any and all takers.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank so many people for a fabulous second annual Carnival that was held at Glen Cove High School on Friday, June 12. The Fire Department, PTSA, staff, and students made this carnival a huge success. The weather turned out beautifully and fun was had by all. The proceeds from the carnival will be going to design a new courtyard at the high school.
