STATEMENT FROM MAYOR DAMON McMULLEN REGARDING COW HARBOR DAY AS OF AUGUST 27, 2021
I have been meeting with Richard Boziwick, Chairman of the Cow Harbor Day Committee and the Cow Harbor Day Committee on a regular basis. It is important to all of us to celebrate Cow Harbor Day and the Cow Harbor Day Race but in the safest manner possible in these unique times. I have included in the meetings representatives from the Northport Police Department and Northport Volunteer Fire Department along with Northport Village Trustees and officials.
Based on all of the information provided and all of the safety precautions being instituted, I have decided together with the Cow Harbor Committee that the great Northport tradition of Cow Harbor Day will go forward.
I encourage everybody attending the event(s) to be vaccinated and to wear a mask when in a crowd. If you are vulnerable, please protect yourself and confer with your doctor to decide whether or not you should attend the Cow Harbor Day event(s).
Cow Harbor Day and the Cow Harbor Race are amazing Northport traditions, and we are excited to continue the tradition this year in a safe and healthy manner.
We will be monitoring the COVID numbers daily, and in the unfortunate event that the percentage of people on Long Island moves dramatically and significantly upward, we will re-evaluate the situation.
I want to thank the dedicated and hardworking individuals on the Cow Harbor Committee, the men and women of the Northport Village Volunteer Fire Department and the Chief of the Department Dennis Sheridan, Police Chief Chris Hughes and the Northport Village Police Department, Northport Village Trustees and officials for their hard work and commitment in making sure we can have Cow Harbor Day this year in the safest manner possible.
