Glen Cove Celebrates Senior Citizens Day

City officials pay tribute to seniors and present two longtime community volunteers with awards.

Robert M. Finley Middle School had a bit of a different look Saturday as dozens of senior citizens instead of teenagers strolled through the hallways socializing with one another. 

The seniors, along with their families and Glen Cove officials, came out in numbers to enjoy music, raffles, refreshments and more as participants in the city's fourth annual Senior Recognition Day. 

Mayor Ralph Suozzi presented residents Arthur and Rhoda Finer with awards during a ceremony to honor them for their volunteerism in the community. The couple has lived in the city for 54 years. City officials also recognized residents who are centenarians.

Members of the Long Island Senior Pops Orchestra and the Glen Cove Senior Center's Golden Voices Choral Group were also on-hand at the celebration to provide attendees with lots of musical entertainment. 

The proceeds from Saturday's festivities, city officials said, will benefit the Glen Cove Sage Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that enhances services for the senior community.
