Childrens Day and Clambake 2002

Children's Day & Clambake
Summer 2002

Story By Frank Ryan

The Civic Association has been sponsoring this day for over 70 years and the 2002 event some believed was the best yet.  Thanks to the Herculean efforts of Chairpersons Rose & Brian Gallagher Children's Day 2002 was an unqualified success. The storm clouds threatened but never came as "Divine Providence" smiled as our children ran, swan, rode, threw, shot, created and ate their way through a magnificent day. 

Special thanks should be conveyed to Mary Beth Magan our "Ice Cream Queen" and Tommy Corning proprietor of OLIVE OILS (our new pizzeria in town) for the generous donations of their culinary delights. The countless volunteers who coordinated each event and our friends from the Town of Hempstead, Ann Ryan, "Big Pat Laverty" and John "our man on the beach" contributed immeasurably to making this day possible.
