Photos: Hewlett-Woodmere principal guides parade


First-year Hewlett High School Principal Alexandra Greenberg has made such an impression on her new school community that she served as the grand marshal of this year’s Hewlett-Woodmere Memorial Day Parade on Monday.

Starting from the Woodmere firehouse and proceeding along Broadway to Hewlett High, the parade included the Hewlett and Woodmere fire departments, the Hewlett High marching band and cheerleaders, Cub Scout Pack 20 and boy scouts, a colorful float featuring an inflated Uncle Sam on a motorcycle, and the Hewlett-Woodmere Little League.

Local businesses were involved with the post-parade celebration as Friendlier donated red, white and blue ices; Patano’s donated hamburgers and hot dogs and Bagel Boss donated bagels, coffee and Danish.

The parade was organized by the Hewlett-Woodmere Business Association.
