Town of North Hempstead Announces 2019 Women’s Roll Of Honor


As part of Women’s History Month, North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Town Clerk Wayne Wink announced the honorees for the 26th Annual May W. Newburger Women’s Roll of Honor.  This year’s breakfast will take place on Wednesday, March 27, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., at the Clubhouse at Harbor Links in Port Washington.

Event chairperson Wayne Wink said, “I am proud to honor these outstanding women for their incredible service to North Hempstead. Each of these women reflects the best that our communities have to offer and we are proud to honor them for their work.”

“We are proud to honor these inspirational women who have contributed so much to our North Hempstead community,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “We are fortunate to have so many altruistic and charity-minded women among our North Hempstead family and we are looking forward to inducting yet another extraordinary group to the Women’s Roll of Honor.”

Since 1994, North Hempstead has held the Women’s Roll of Honor breakfast to honor women who have made a contribution to their community, or have accomplished a significant achievement through public or private efforts.

North Hempstead resident Shirley Romaine will continue the tradition of reciting an inspirational message at the breakfast.

The event remains free of charge and seating will be available on a first come first serve basis.
