(GLEN COVE, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton (D - Glen Cove) visited the Glen Cove Senior Center on Friday, Jan. 21 to join members in celebrating the January birthdays of its members. Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton joined the group in singing “Happy Birthday” and gave every person celebrating a birthday a long-stem red rose.
“After such a long hiatus during the pandemic, it was absolutely wonderful to resume a cherished tradition that celebrates our seniors and fills my heart with gratitude,” Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton said. “I wish all of the Glen Cove Senior Center’s ‘January babies’ - three of whom were born on Jan. 1! - a happy birthday and a year filled with good health and love. We are all grateful for everything the Center’s staff has done to help our seniors through the many challenges of the last two years.”
