OHS CLASS OF 1960 (and www.1960sailors.net) IMMORTALIZED AT

On a beautiful day in our home town, Saturday, June 28th, 2003, at its annual arts and crafts fair held on the grounds of the former School No. 1, the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce kicked off a new program to name a local business of the month and declaring June to be " month in Oceanside."  In the brief ceremony  held shortly after noon, on behalf of the Class of 1960, I presented* to , a beautifully framed, specially adapted, print version (illustrated below) of our own   web page entitled "A Tribute to and Brief History of   in Oceanside, New York."   

On Tuesday, July 1, 2003,   corporate Director of Operations, Bruce Miller, accepted the tribute award on behalf of corporate management. It is now hanging permanently in the newly renovated   in our little town, thus immortalizing our class.  The item is inscribed as illustrated at the right.

So, the next time you visit Oceanside, look for this item  hanging in , and naming our class as its source.

And don't forget to tell me if your e-dress changes  PLEASE!
