North Hempstead, NY – The Town of North Hempstead will premiere a video celebrating the 2020 Women’s Roll of Honor recipients in recognition of Women’s History Month. Since 1994, North Hempstead has held the Women’s Roll of Honor to acknowledge distinguished women who reside in the Town and have contributed to their community, or who have accomplished a significant achievement through public or private efforts in a volunteer capacity. The 2020 event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Town honored recipients in a safe socially distant manner.
The program will premiere on Monday, March 1, 2021 at 4 p.m. and will continue airing throughout the month of March.
In addition to appearing on the Town's social media channels, the program will be broadcast on the Town’s award-winning government access television station, North Hempstead TV (NHTV) throughout the month of March. Residents will be able to watch the programs on channel 18 or 63 on Cablevision and channel 46 on Verizon FIOS or by visiting: www.mynhtv.com.
