North Hempstead Celebrates Honorees at the 2023 May W. Newburger Women’s Roll of Honor
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jennifer DeSena and Town Clerk Ragini Srivastava were proud to recognize the honorees for the Annual May W. Newburger Women’s Roll of Honor held on June 23 at the Clubhouse at Harbor Links. The breakfast ceremony celebrates the achievements of this year’s extraordinary women.
Event chairperson Ragini Srivastava said, “I am proud we could continue the long-standing tradition of the Town of North Hempstead to recognize the impactful work of deserving women and to thank them on behalf of a grateful community.”
“It was an honor to induct this year’s class to the Women’s Roll of Honor. The Town is so proud to celebrate these exceptional women who have helped make our communities a better place,” said Supervisor DeSena.
Generous sponsorships by Americana Manhasset (Founders Sponsor) and Flushing Bank (Community Leader Sponsor) made this event possible without cost to the 250 guests.
Citizen’s Service Sponsors, M&T Bank, KISS USA, Inc, Hawkins, Delafield and Wood, and King Kullen Supermarkets, helped to underwrite the program as well.
Since 1994, North Hempstead has held the Women’s Roll of Honor to honor women who have contributed to their community or have accomplished a significant achievement through public or private efforts. The Women’s Roll of Honor is named after the late May W. Newburger who served as North Hempstead Supervisor from 1994 to 2003.
