|Message from Mayor Bonnie Christian:|
On Wednesday, May 19th at 11:00 am there will be a ceremony to honor our own South Nyack resident Dr. Frances Pratt. This ceremony will take place on Cooper Drive in South Nyack. I am pleased to announce that Cooper Drive will be honorarily named Dr. Frances Pratt Drive.
Dr. Pratt has been a household word in our community for many years, and has been described as a “living legend”. She had a 53 year career at Nyack Hospital; which included being the Head Nurse in the Emergency room and later Health Administrator. A waiting room and a scholarship have been named in Dr. Pratt’s honor. She is a licensed Family Care Provider, and was the President of the Nyack Chapter of the NAACP for 40 years. More recently, Dr. Pratt was a member of the South Nyack/Grandview-on-Hudson police-reform panel.
In addition to Dr. Pratt’s dedication and commitment to the community, social justice and equality, she is well known for the beautiful, colorful hats that she wears to complement her outfits.
Please join us on May 19th to honor our own
South Nyack resident; Dr. Frances Pratt.
