ISLAND CELEBRATIONS DEC 2013….

It always amazes me how resilient Long Islanders are…..we had a wonderful celebration Sunday afternoon dedicating St. Andrews Anglican church- newly restored and renovated! It could not have happened without the continued hard work, time, money and dedication of so many here!

Thankfully I have pictures from 2005, walking thru it with friends visiting before the roof was destroyed in many different hurricanes and became totally unusable!
