I grew up in Levittown with my parents and nine siblings. I attended Abbey Lane grammar school and Levittown Memorial High School, class of 1970. I currently reside in the Houston, Texas area, but most of my siblings are still on Long Island.
A few years back I started a project of locating and copying the Levittown Little League yearbooks from 1960-64. These were the years that my brother and I and most of our friends played little league baseball. My purpose was to give the copies to my brother Bill, (who lives in Bayshore) as a gift. I finally finished scanning each page of each year and burned them to a CD.
I have since sent two copies to the Levittown Public Library. I spoke to Ann Glorioso in the library’s technical reference section, and she said she could make copies as folks requested.
The yearbooks are filled with wonderful pictures and memories of friends, family, coaches and local businesses that sponsored each of the teams. I will be 60 in two months and thought it would be a great time to share.
