What a warm and wonderful reception the Glen Cove Downtown Sounds program has received this summer! The response from our seniors has been incredible. Many attended the weekly events throughout the season and had been consistently impressed and extremely complimentary about each program.
My enormous gratitude goes out to those who have made this possible because many older adults cannot easily venture into the city for such quality entertainment. In particular, I would like to acknowledge Fran Koehler who has been coordinating this excellent program and the Downtown Sounds Chairperson, Susan Challender and her committee and all the volunteers involved for their hard work and dedication. In addition, I thank everyone at the City Council and the Downtown BID who have partnered together with the endless support of Mayor Ralph Suozzi and his Deputy Mayor Maureen Basdavanos.
The value of such events as the ‘Downtown Sounds’ should not be underestimated – they keep our whole community and especially our seniors, inspired and in great spirits – a priceless combination! Here’s to continuing this great work for many years to come.
