Here are more photos from the recent and hugely successful all-1970s Roslyn High School reunion that was held during the weekend of July 23-25.
During the weekend, the graduates visited old haunts in Roslyn, such as the Roslyn Chalet. They also went to a beach party at Bar Beach and an evening of music and dancing at Mirelli’s in Westbury.
Finally, the big weekend came to an end with one last get-together at the Roslyn Duck Pond.
On July 28, Roslyn residents were able to escape the sweltering heat and enjoy an evening outdoors as the village held its first such concert in a decade.

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano is proposing to consolidate administrative functions of the 6th and the 2nd Police Precincts and move the 6th Precinct headquarters to the 2nd Precinct location in Woodbury. The county executive says that the plan would save over $20 million and would not diminish police service. However, many local public officials are firm in their view that residents would suffer. Additionally, there is still the question as to whether or not Mr. Mangano can order this consolidation without approval of the Nassau County Legislature.
Four months after introducing a program offering town residents age 60 and over transportation at nominal cost for non-emergency medical visits, Supervisor Jon Kaiman and the North Hempstead Town Board announced last week that the initiative has serviced its 1,000th ride since its April 1 debut.

This past weekend, the village hosted a gala reunion for all the Roslyn High School graduating classes of the 1970s. During the festivities, much of the talk undoubtedly turned to the celebrants’ offspring. One of them, Corey King, son of Richard King, Roslyn High School Class of 1976, played at the event. At age 14, Corey, a student at the Green Vale School, is one of the top young drummers in the New York City area.
