CHAMBER GREETING While a Chamber of Commerce has many purposes within a community, I have always felt that there are three main functions that stand out from the rest; one, to develop and maintain business relationships within the community; two, to act as a liaison between the local businesses and the various levels of government; three, develop and teach the future business leaders of tomorrow. For the last 57 years, I am proud to say that the East Meadow Chamber has accomplished all of this, and so much more. We hold regular monthly meetings, which are generally the first Wednesday of the month and alternate between lunch and dinner times. Please check www.eastmeadowchamber.com for times and locations. The Chamber also sponsors grand openings and/ or ribbon cutting celebrations for all new businesses within the community.

We have also created East Meadow Town Square at Town of Hempstead Veteran’s Memorial Park, which has since become a focal point of the community. The Chamber has hosted summer concerts, Memorial Day parades, Holiday Lighting ceremonies and wedding photos in the Gazebo. Town Square has become a gathering place for East Meadow residents to enjoy. We run a Culinary Delights event, a fishing trip, networking events, shop locally program and much more. It is with your support, as both business leaders and residents, that we are able to accomplish our goals. For more information and to get involved, please call the Chamber office at 516-794-3727 or visit our website at www.eastmeadowchamber.com, Buy with confidence and shop locally.

HISTORY By AMY SCHOENBERGER The history of East Meadow is long and storied, dating back to the 17th century. In 1643, a small group of colonists from Connecticut decided to cross Long Island Sound and create a new settlement on Long Island. They purchased land from Native Americans and named it Hempstead Town, after their birthplace in England. One year later, Governor Kieft gave them a patent, and the colonists claimed the land as their own. In 1655, surveyor Thomas Langdon reported at a Hempstead Town meeting that the “east meadow” was suitable for grazing. Cattle and sheep would graze there for years and were East Meadow’s primary residents in its early days. The sheep supplied much of the colony’s wool. On the last Monday in October, the sheep would be driven to East Meadow’s public pen from all sections of the Hempstead Plains. They were identified with certain marks on their ears and sent home with farmers. Unmarked sheep were auctioned off. The day became something of a celebration as soon merchants, acrobats, clowns and politicians began attending. It eventually became an annual holiday called Parting Day. In 1665, a horse track was established in the Salisbury area, attracting many people to East Meadow. Many racetracks came and went on the plains during this time, but the Salisbury horse track was among the most famous. In May 1750, a major road was built through East Meadow. Jerusalem Road was laid out from Hempstead to Jerusalem. Newbridge Avenue was made an official highway in 1755, and it ran from Jericho Turnpike to Newbridge Neck on the South Shore. Eleanor Roosevelt, one of the more noteworthy people to call East Meadow home, lived on Newbridge Avenue as a child many years before she became the First Lady of the United States. Prospect Avenue was called Haycarter’s Lane because it was a winding path leading to the Haying Fields.

Shannon Koehle/Herald

The East Meadow Fire Department accepted a 200-pound piece of the World Trade Center. Merrick Avenue was originally called Barnum Avenue, and Hempstead Turnpike was originally a toll road. Peter and Sarah Barnum also did much for the community. They owned 2,000 acres of land, which Sarah inherited from her father. In an area of many farms and estates, the Barnums owned the most land. They supported more than 100 seasonal workers in addition to their regular help. Adding to their land, they also purchased other small farms around Long Island. In 1849, John Noon bought an inn at Prospect and Newbridge avenues. He named it the Wells-Fargo Hotel, and it was very prosperous and well known. The Meadow Brook Hunt Club was established in 1877 by a group of sportsmen who brought a pack of hounds from Ireland. They leased an old farmhouse near Merrick Avenue and enjoyed their sporting activity for many years as a club. That area was turned into the Meadow Brook Golf Course at the turn of the century, a time when golf was becoming a popular sport in East Meadow. East Meadow faced one of its worse calamities when the blizzard of 1888 struck. Roads were impossible to travel on, and snow went up to second-story windows. The blizzard lasted from March 12 until April 2. The first school in East Meadow was a one-room schoolhouse at Front

Street and Newbridge Avenue. It soon proved to be overcrowded, so East Meadow Hall was established at the turn of the century, which was a tworoom schoolhouse right next to the post office. In 1922, the school was said to be overflowing with pupils, and East Meadow established another school on Newbridge Road, called the Newbridge Road School. In 1950, overcrowding became a problem again, and the Prospect Avenue Elementary School was established. By 1955, East Meadow High School was established, headed by principal Edward J. McCleary. Two years later, the first senior class graduated from East Meadow High School. After World War I, East Meadow became large enough to start running public buses to and from Hempstead. After World War II, East Meadow’s population skyrocketed — increasing by 376 percent. In 1951, there were 25,000 residents living there, and that number more than doubled within the next six years. Veterans Memorial Park was established in April 1963 as the first park and pool in East Meadow. Today, East Meadow boasts a public library and is home to Nassau University Medical Center, Eisenhower Park and the Nassau County Correctional Center.

To tell us what’s going on in your community, or news of upcoming events sponsored by civic, service, religious or community organizations, the deadline is 10 a.m. the Friday prior to publication. Notices are printed free of charge, but must be typed and double-spaced. We also welcome the news of your family life, your business life and your social life. We accept, at no charge, obituaries and Neighbors in the News items, including awards, honors, births, graduations, marriages and promotions. We value your opinions, and provide a forum for them in our popular Letters to the Editor space. Letters are accepted until 5 p.m. the Friday prior to publication. Jeff Wilson/Herald

NASSAU COUNTY Nassau County is governed by an elected Legislature. The Legislature is comprised of legislators from 19 districts. It includes an independent budget director who advises the Legislature on spending and revenue matters. The Legislature also enables residents to submit petitions for proposed new laws that legislators are obligated to consider. The 19 county legislators serve two-year terms. The county executive — currently Republican Edward Mangano — serves a four-year term and is the chief administrator. Nassau also has an elected comptroller, currently George Maragos, a district attorney, Kathleen Rice, and a county clerk, Maureen O'Connell.

TOWN OF HEMPSTEAD The Town of Hempstead, founded in 1644, is the largest township in the United States, encompassing 142 square miles with a population of approximately 760,000 people. Within the Town there are 34 unincorporated areas and 22 incorporated villages, more than 65 parks and marinas, and 2,500 miles of roads. Under the current system, the Town of Hempstead is overseen by a town supervisor — currently Republican Kate Murray — and a six-member Town Council. The six members of the council are elected from one of six councilmatic districts. The supervisor has a two-year term, and the council members have a four-year term of office. The supervisor serves as the chief executive officer of town government. She presides over all town board meetings, directing the legislative and administrative functions of that body. The supervisor also oversees the day-to-day operations of a municipal government of 24 major departments, employing just more than 2,100 people. As the chief financial officer of the township, the supervisor is responsible for the creation and the implementation of a town budget. Council members are responsible for adopting the annual budget, amending the town code and the building zone ordinances, adopting all traffic regulations and hearing applications for changes of zone and special exceptions to zoning codes.
