    The breakfast began with the Nassau County Police Department Color Guard presenting the colors and Nassau County Police Inspector Leslie Mould Olsen leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Soprano Christine Birke, Director of the Herricks High School Chamber Ensemble, delivered a beautiful rendition of our National Anthem.
    Generous sponsors Flushing Bank, Americana Manhasset, Castagna Realty, and the Castagna Family helped make the event possible.
    Since 1994, North Hempstead has held the Women’s Roll of Honor to honor women who have contributed to their community or have accomplished a significant achievement through public or private efforts. The Women’s Roll of Honor is named after the late May W. Newburger who served as North Hempstead Supervisor from 1994 to 2003.
