Town Clerk Wayne Wink, Supervisor Judi Bosworth and other Town officials attended North Hempstead’s tenth annual Marriage Recommitment Ceremony, held at Harbor Links Clubhouse in Port Washington on Feb. 14.
The ceremony, which was officiated by Wink, offered married couples the opportunity to reaffirm their vows to each other on Valentine’s Day. Also on hand at the ceremony were council members Viviana Russell, Veronica Lurvey, Peter Zuckerman, Lee Seeman, Dina De Giorgio and Receiver of Taxes Charles Berman.
“Love is in the air today. Thank you for joining us today to renew your marriage vows,” said Bosworth. “We are all celebrating the power of love and how love can conquer all.”
“It is my pleasure to officiate this ceremony and celebrate Valentine’s Day with these inspiring couples who have been committed to each other for many years,” said Wink.
Over 40 couples renewed their vows at this year’s ceremony, many of them after being married for over 50 years. This year’s longest married couple was Rose and Charlie Cipolla and Bart and Marie Cosolito. Both couples have been married for 65 years.
The residents who attended the event enjoyed a champagne toast and lunch after the ceremony.
Also in attendance was county legislator Ellen Birnbaum.
