Celebrating Women's History Month

Throughout March, Women’s History Month is being celebrated in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.  Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed legislation which authorized and requested President Jimmy Carter to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week. In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women's History Month in perpetuity. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women throughout history. 
As noted in the 2019 Presidential Proclamation, during Women's History Month, we celebrate the countless women whose courage and resolve have contributed to the character and success of our Nation and the entire world. The equal opportunity of women in every facet of daily life is an essential feature of a free and prosperous society. This month, we honor women who have fought for equality and against the status quo, and who have broken the bonds of discrimination, partiality, and injustice for the benefit of all. These women created a legacy that continues to inspire generations of women to live with confidence, to have a positive impact on their communities, and to improve our Nation every single day. We remember all the American women, past and present, who have inspired and empowered today's women to advocate for their beliefs and pursue their dreams without hesitation.

Here in Hempstead Village, we will be celebrating Women’s History Month on Monday, March 18 with a program titled “Honoring Visionary Women.” Everyone is invited to join us as we recognize women and the tremendous contributions they have made to society here in America and in other places abroad as well.  The event will be held at Kennedy Memorial Park (335 Greenwich Street), starting at 6 p.m.

It's Election Time!

I also wanted to remind residents about the upcoming election for two Village Trustee seats that will be taking place on Tuesday, March 19.  All registered voters are encouraged to take the time to exercise their rights to cast a ballot.  Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.  For more information please call the Hempstead Village Clerk's office at 516-489-3400 ext. 202 or ext. 209.
