Roslyn may be a small town, but it contains much history, including those who were eyewitnesses to historical events.

The weather has not been very cooperative this summer. It was the first year that the village officials of Flower Hill had proposed a series of events to take place in the Flower Hill Park.

The latest use of this system was an announcement that the block party, scheduled for Sept. 12 was rained out and that the rain date of Sept. 13 would be used.

—Robert A.M. Stern, architect of the Rockwell Museum

His enormous impact was achieved through the 321 covers he created for Saturday Evening Post from 1916 to 1963, including his famous Four Freedoms series of patriotic wartime paintings.
