Suozzi Begins Next Term as County Executive
Tom Suozzi continued his tenure as Nassau County Executive on Jan. 1, 2006, when he was sworn in for his second term. Amid speculation that Suozzi will eventually announce a run for governor, the Democrat spent New Year's Day at home in Glen Cove addressing the crowd who gathered at the Robert C. Finley Middle School.
It all began in the Massapequas on the evening of Sept. 24, 1949. A lavish charter night dinner dance was held in the Wagon Wheel Restaurant where the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church now stands. The event attracted 226 visiting Kiwanians from throughout Long Island, up-state, Massapequa club members and friends of Kiwanis. Daniel C. Wall was elected to be the first Massapequa Kiwanis Club president and accepted the club's charter from Si Reynolds, Governor of the New York District of Kiwanis International. Wall was the immediate past mayor of Massapequa Park at that time. The Massapequa club was sponsored by the Manhasset club. The new club banner was presented by Manhasset Kiwanian James Dowsey and accepted by Herman Maass. The Invocation was given by the late John Malcolm Haight from the Grace Episcopal Church. George Dippel, a prominent Massapequa architect who later became the designer of the Massapequa schools, was the event chairman.
