From May 8-10, Island Trees Memorial Middle School’s eighth grade class embarked on an incredible adventure to our nation’s capital, Washington D.C.
During the trip, the eighth graders met with politicians, visited historic monuments, explored some of our national museums, and experienced the culture of one of the most important cities in the world.
We are proud that students had such a great time and that these memories will last a lifetime. On the first day, students visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial, World War II Memorial and the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.
On May 9, students visited with Rep. Peter King on the steps of the Capitol building. During their visit, the students also were treated to a surprise visit with House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner. After, students visited the Supreme Court building, the Holocaust Museum,
Arlington National Cemetery, President John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy’s Memorials, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Mast of the U.S.S. Maine, Memorial to the Challenger and Columbia, the Iwo Jima Memorial and the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial.
On their last day, students went on a tour of the White House and visited the Smithsonian museums of Air and Space, Natural History, American History and the National Zoological Park.
What an incredible experience this was for all the Island Trees eighth grade students.

It’s been a long time since Nicole Shaw and Chris McCabe first met—years, in fact—but after taking a chance on each other, the couple realized that they were meant to be with
McCabe recently proposing to Shaw at Old Westbury Gardens’ annual Rise of the Jack O’Lanterns after six years of dating.
McCabe, now an NYPD officer, and Shaw, who works for Mill Neck Services for Deaf Adults, met in middle school and developed their friendship through high school, said Shaw.

The smell of pine, wood and scented candles greet customers with a sense of home as they cross the wooden threshold to the Amish Craft Barn in Seaford. There they will find dolls, birdhouses, quilts, ceramic turkeys, hand-painted Christmas trees, oak furniture and other seasonal and holiday tchotchkes.
Massapequa natives Frank and Pam Hoerauf started The Amish Craft Barn & Gift Shoppe 20 years ago after an inspiring visit to Pennsylvania.
