Nominating Period Extended for North Hempstead’s

2024 Women’s Roll of Honor Ceremony


North Hempstead, NY Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Jennifer DeSena and Town Clerk Ragini Srivastava have announced that the Town Clerk’s Office has extended the nominating period for the 2024 Women’s Roll of Honor Ceremony by two weeks, with nominations now closing on Friday, May 24.


“We’re thrilled to continue the 31-year tradition of honoring the incredible women in our Town with this year’s June event,” Supervisor DeSena said. “Our Town is so fortunate to have an abundance of outstanding women who exemplify the strength and service it takes to be a community leader. This helps shine a light on these amazing and selfless women.”


Town Clerk Ragini Srivastava added, “I urge our residents to please nominate an outstanding woman from their own communities for the Women’s Roll of Honor. This is really a unique opportunity to recognize someone who has significantly contributed to community betterment and it inspires others to get involved and do the same.”


This event was founded decades ago in 1994 by the late Supervisor May Newburger, who was the first female Supervisor for the Town of North Hempstead. Supervisor Newburger was an avid champion for women’s rights, and a courageous and forward-thinking leader always looking for innovative ways to make the community better for our residents.


The 31st Annual May W. Newburger Women’s Roll of Honor breakfast ceremony will be held on Tuesday, June 18th at the Clubhouse at Harbor Links in Port Washington. Guest reservations will be accepted starting May 20th, 2024 through June 7th, 2024.
