April 13, 2002 Will Be a Landmark Day
In November of 2000 the Town of North Hempstead held its first Landmark Symposium at the US Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point. It was so successful that there have been many requests to make it an annual event. In response, the town has again joined with the Historical Society of the Town of North Hempstead and the historical societies of our villages and hamlets, to offer a second preservation symposium to be held on Saturday, April 13 at the George Washington Manor in the Village of Roslyn.
Possible Renaming of Grace Avenue Park
A proposal has been made to the Great Neck Park District board of commissioners by Fred Sager, department president of the Vigilant Engine & Hook & Ladder Company, that Grace Avenue Park be renamed in honor of Great Neck firefighter Jonathan Ielpi, who perished on Sept. 11.
End of Ice Season Wrap-up
On March 31, Parkwood Ice Rink completed another successful season. Figure skaters and hockey players enjoyed many activities over the winter session. The first figure skating event was our annual holiday show which showcased the best skate school students and members of the Great Neck Figure Skating Club. On March 9, the skate school, under the direction of Milada Stastny and myself, organized the Fourth Annual ISI competition. Many rinks attended from all over the metropolitan area.
