It was truly a wonderful day in Malverne celebrating our 100th Year Anniversary at the Centennial Family Picnic! A ribbon cutting ceremony took place to kick-off the public celebrations followed by a welcoming ceremony. Live music entertained all of the local residents and a full schedule of good old fashioned games and activities were planned including potato sack races, corn hole, dunk tank, horseshoes, ring toss, pie baking contest and more!
The Village Board was happy to have the support of many of our elected officials including County Executive Curran, County Legislator Gaylor, Town Supervisor Clavin, Councilman D’Esposito, Senator Kaminsky and Assemblywoman Griffin.
Thank you to our Village Historian, David Weinstein for hosting a Malverne Historical chat at the Centennial Family Picnic. The topic of discussion - Growing Up in Malverne in the Late 1930’s & 40’s. Mr. Weinstein was joined by our Former Mayor Joseph Canzoneri, and long-time residents Arthur Raymond and Bill Cullen. These fine gentlemen had a fantastic time recollecting their wonderful childhood memories of Malverne.
Special thanks to Trustee Prizzi and his Centennial Committee Members of over 50 volunteers in addition to all of the local community groups, merchants and Village departments that helped make our Centennial Kick-off & Family Picnic a great success.
We look forward to continuing our celebrations on October 3rd for our Centennial Float Parade & Village Fall Festival with the Chamber of Commerce. Parade kick-off at 10:30AM - Festival 11AM-5PM
