Seaford Historical Society Meeting 3.15.2007

The Seaford Historical Society met at the Seaford Firehouse, Southard Avenue, Thursday evening, March 15, 2007. This post will treat of several business items. A separate post will consider High Hills Beach, the subject of an excellent slide presentation by Josh Soren. Among the first topics of discussion was the need to apply on-line for funds from the Nassau County 2006 Environmental Bond Act, as on-line applications were due that very evening. With advice from helpful citizens, a member of the Historical Society promptly did this task at home and returned to the meeting with copies of the submission. David Deneberg, County Legislator, pointed out that several submissions have been made for work at Tackapausha Pond.
The membership chair reported that the Society has grown to 65 members. Mr. Powell explained the work that has already taken place in carefully removing collected debris from the 1893 school house. An engineering report is on the way. I was much impressed by the expertise and willingness of the volunteers who reported what has been done by the Society over the past four months. Talent and enthusiasm are not lacking.
If I heard correctly, the next meetings of the Society will be May 17 (John Hanse) and May 24, a general meeting for election of officers.
