First Town on Long Island to commemorate the extraordinary sacrifices made by essential and frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth, along with the Town Board, unveiled a commemorative display at Town Hall, honoring the heroic efforts of frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic on Thursday, March 25, 2021. The Town is the first on Long Island to memorialize the dedication made by frontline workers. While the pandemic continues, Town officials hosted this ceremony to honor the extraordinary sacrifices made by so many. The installation of the display took place one year after New York State initially declared a state of emergency due to coronavirus.
“This new display pays tribute to our first responders, medical professionals, and essential employees, who served as the backbone of our community during these incredibly trying times,” said Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “These courageous individuals continue to serve in many capacities and are simply people who get the job done every single day. They have all worked and come together when it counted the most.”
North Hempstead expressed its appreciation for all the frontline workers have done so much to help protect the safety of residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. The commemorative display is the Town’s way showing sincere appreciation and gratitude for all they have done and continue to do.
The commemorative display unveiling will be aired as part of the North Hempstead Strong: Reflections and Messages of Hope during COVID-19 series on North Hempstead TV as well as the Town’s social channels.
