Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano was joined by Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth to celebrate the 69th anniversary of Indian Independence Day, at the annual parade in Hicksville earlier this month.

“I am pleased to join everyone in celebration of the 69th anniversary of Indian Independence Day,” Mangano said. “This movement is such an important part of history because it focused on civil disobedience and non-violence. Today provides us with a great opportunity to celebrate the many achievements of the Indian-American community, not only here in Nassau, but across the nation.
