North Hempstead Announces Honorees for 2020 May W. Newburger Women’s Roll of Honor
Event postponed, new date forthcoming
North Hempstead, NY - As part of Women’s History Month, North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Town Clerk Wayne Wink announced the honorees for the 27th Annual May W. Newburger Women’s Roll of Honor.
Out of an abundance of caution, and in the interest of preventing the spread of Coronavirus, the ceremony originally scheduled for March 25 has been postponed until further notice. A new date is forthcoming and will be announced.
Event chairperson Wayne Wink said, “I am proud to honor these outstanding women for their incredible service to North Hempstead. Each of these women reflects the best that our communities have to offer and we are proud to honor them for their work.”
“We are proud to celebrate the inspirational women who dedicate so much to their community,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “It is important to celebrate their accomplishments and their influence in the Town of North Hempstead.”
Since 1994, North Hempstead has held the Women’s Roll of Honor breakfast to honor women who have made a contribution to their community, or have accomplished a significant achievement through public or private efforts.
