Town of North Hempstead’s Holds 2015 Women’s Roll of Honor
North Hempstead, NY – Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth, Town Clerk Wayne Wink and the Town Board recently celebrated Women’s History Month with more than 100 Town residents during the 22nd Annual May W. Newburger Women’s Roll of Honor Breakfast on March 26.
The event, which was held at the Clubhouse at Harbor Links, honored 18 women who were presented with an award during the breakfast in recognition of their commitment to their neighbors, and their community.
“We are so proud to call these remarkable women our neighbors,” said Supervisor Bosworth, “and this event is our opportunity to thank them for their hard work and commitment on behalf of our community.”
May Newburger, the first female Supervisor for the Town of North Hempstead, started the Women’s Roll of Honor in 1994 to commemorate women in the North Hempstead community that went above and beyond, and contributed to the lives of the people around them in an incredible way.
“We honor women today who have traveled the globe doing good deeds, and women who have firmly planted themselves in their own community to change the lives of their neighbors, co-workers and strangers alike,” Town Clerk Wayne Wink said.
This year, the honorees were 18 women from all corners of North Hempstead and are involved in their local school districts, little leagues, religious institutions, charities, and civic groups. The honorees’ names now adorn a plaque in Town Hall beside the names of past years’ recipients.
