There was no parade down Roslyn Road this year, but the day was a big success anyway, as Roslyn High School celebrated its annual Homecoming last Saturday, Oct. 1.
A unique part of the festivities was a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the reopening of the Roslyn High School cafeteria. With tight school budgets the order of the day, the Roslyn community pitched in to help the facility undergo a much-needed and successful transformation into a cafeteria that better serves the high school student body. According to school district officials, the cafeteria now resembles a college union with more seating capacity and is now more inviting and user-friendly. In addition, the area is Wi-Fi-enabled, making it a perfect meeting place for students at the high school.

The North Hills Country Club (NHCC), home of recent Spring Swing Invitational Golf Tournaments hosted by the Mill Neck Family of Organizations (MN), held their second annual Softball Game this summer at The Wheatley School in Old Westbury.
