Nassau County, NY - April 2, 2014 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano (4th left) and his wife Linda hosted over 400 residents on the first day of spring, in a ceremony celebrating a late Valentine’s Day. A winter storm in February caused the county to delay the much anticipated event until spring. The three couples pictured with County Executive Mangano and his wife were each married more than 65 years. Shown above from left to right are; Edward and Audrey Coyne of Plainview, County Executive & Mrs. Mangano, Helen and Michael Grella of Hicksville, and Stanley and Bernice Ulanoff of Roslyn who celebrated 67 years of married bliss. These couple joined with hundreds of other Nassau county residents who renewed their vows, and were treated to lunch and an afternoon of live music and dancing at The Coral House.
