The Graduating Class of Schreiber High held its prom, known as the Gambol, on Friday, June 25. For the second year it was celebrated at Hempstead House in the County owned Sands Point Preserve. Again, this year it was a beautiful, heart-warming event produced by parents and other volunteers.
The graduates were excited and beautifully dressed for this once-in-a-lifetime event.
The Village of Sands Point was pleased, with the county, to make the "castle" available and to provide proper police security.
The music and dinner were in a huge tent between Hempstead House and the harbor. As loud as the music was, and being in an open tent, noise was minimal in surrounding areas.
Almost every one accepted any discomfort for this annual five hour event.
Other than for this community-wide event, others will be required to have all music indoors, inside of Hempstead House, with no music in tents.
It was a wonderful evening and possibly the Class of 2005 may wish to use Hempstead House again.
