HISTORY OF OCEANSIDE In the late 1600s, England and Holland vied for a colonial empire that had as its center New York and New Jersey. By 1655 the English had established firm control over the eastern seaboard and Long Island became a part of its New England territory. The king’s government for what is now Nassau County was based in Hempstead (a township that included both Hempstead and North Hempstead). By 1674 its government was firmly established and the land was in full possession of the Presbyterian white settlers; the Native American population had been drastically reduced by smallpox and vicious attacks; they were a powerless minority. Those who lived in Hempstead called the territory South Bay. Even before 1674, homes were being built, and the first documented record of the beginnings of Oceanside comes from the history of St. George’s Church. The church was granted a “glebe of one hundred acres near the South Bay” in 1682 as a means of financial stability. This tract of land belonged to the church for 144 years and was known as The Parsonage Farm. The South Bay soon came to be known as Christian Hook, a name that further reflects this spiritual bent. It is not hard to guess the importance that religion played in everyday life. These Presbyterians who had found only religious persecution in England and who now found themselves against the elements, were quick to establish their religion as the binding force in everyday life. Other religious sects were appearing in the Hempstead area. An attempt to unify the groups is evident in a charter of liberties and privileges drawn up on October 17, 1683. It states that “no persons which profess faith in God by Jesus Christ, shall in any way be molested, punished, disquieted, or called in question for difference of opinion...all and every such may at all times fully enjoy his or their judgement or conscience in matters of religion.” The noble words had little effect on the true state of affairs. Less established than the Presbyterians, the Quakers and Roman Catholics were not given a warm reception by their new hosts. Subject to beatings and imprisonment, torture and indifference, their fate seemed destined to be the same as the Native American population. But as time went on, Catholics and Quakers firmly established themselves and there gradually came into being a mutual tolerance, if not acceptance. Along with agriculture, industry experienced a boom during the late 18th century. Lumber and grist mills were set up along the lands of the South Bay. In 1688 Joseph Haviland set up a grist mill on Mill River (which is the western boundary of Oceanside). This was the first documented settlement of East Rockaway. Cattle, hogs and sheep were raised and whales were quite commonly sighted and occasionally caught and the oil quickly used. Shellfish and other marine edibles were present in great quantity. Oysters were 12 inches across. The many fish that were left over after mealtime were used as fertilizer. This augmented an already abundant farming community. With all the wildlife and fertile land, little attention was paid to conservation. Fires and senseless slaughter were widespread and though the soil was rich, it was quickly depleted by constant tilling.

Alyson Goodman/Herald

In 1721, the Town elected its first Board of Trustees, and later made it the body of financial control. Much of the money used to keep up the quality of life, to build houses and jails and farms, came from a tax imposed ostensibly to benefit the English church. Though it seems that the early settlers were too busy building and praying and farming to do anything else, education soon grew to play an important part in colonial life. The first evidence of publicly-financed education comes in the form of a liquor tax imposed in 1660. One half of the return was for the purchase of powder and shot. The other half was for “schools for poor children.” Here there is evidence that the community was taking responsibility for the young. Previously, education was solely the responsibility of the parent. Most of the teaching was done in the field, as children toiled alongside their parents seven days a week. It is difficult to pinpoint just where the first school in Oceanside was. The earliest known school site existed where Oceanside Road meets Foxhurst Road. Oceanside Road was the main highway south from Hempstead and was originally called Christian Hook Road. William S. Pelletreau, in his “History of Long Island,” describes a schoolhouse of that time as a “log building with two windows. A great fireplace, wide enough to take in a cordstick, occupied one half the width of the room. The seats were rough planks supported by legs let into auger holes at either end, and without backs. At the sides of the building were rough planks resting on puncheons, and at these the pupils stood over unruled copy books, laboriously tracing with a goose-quill pen the copy set by the master... It was before the days of the Readers too, and two or three

HISTORY OF OCEANSIDE community and raised the standard of living. The huge, familyowned tracts of land were broken up into smaller holdings and individual family members could work them in conjunction with bay activity. This led to full-time employment, higher wages and a higher rate of production. Other businesses thrived as well. Blacksmiths and wheelwrights, general stores and funeral parlors sprang up along what are now Davison Avenue and Long Beach Road. Brassworks, butchers, sawmills and showmakers were present as well. Competition in the oyster market demonstrated that the name Christian Hook was no longer appropriate and so the new name became Oceanville at the turn of the century. But there was already an Oceanville in existence and authorities would not accept the name. Postal recognition was important as the town began to establish far reaching relationships. In 1890 the name “Ocean Side” was proposed and accepted. The combined name we use today became official in 1918. At the beginning of the 20th century a trolley line was extended through Oceanside that ran from Jamaica through Lynbrook, Baldwin, Freeport and Hempstead. The trolley line enabled those who based their lives around Long Island to have easy access to the other areas; it also cemented these communities together. The trolley line also paved the way for the coming of suburbia.


generations learned to read and spell from the Bible.” The years between the end of the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 saw the depletion of the forests on Long Island (there was a growing need for lumber to help build a rapidly expanding New York City). The once inexhaustible shellfish population dwindled until the Town of Hempstead adopted strict measures against non-resident operators (these measures paved the way for systematic farming of the sea bed, rather than the gluttonous waste of earlier years). But if the locals could no longer be entirely self-sufficient, their farm produce and livestock guaranteed a good quality of living; these items were much in demand at the New York markets. Boats delivered the goods overnight. Dependence on other markets created a necessity for means to get to those markets. As trade branched out to New York and other parts of the Island, the community of Christian Hook lost all traces of isolation. Stage coach lines were built that centered in Near Rockaway and branched out to Brooklyn, New York, Jamaica and Raynortown. From Raynortown there was a line to the Hamptons and Sag Harbor. Sag Harbor was a major shipping center and so the line that ran through Christian Hook was of major importance. Oyster farming became at once a conservation movement and a thriving business. Farming and the oyster industry cooperated to make a great contribution to the welfare of the

HISTORY OF ISLAND PARK The small island between the mainland of Long Island and Long Beach has been known by many names: Hog Island, Barnum Island, Jekyll Island and finally it is known today as Island Park. Like so many other parts of Long Island, there are whispers and reminders of Native American activity that date back centuries. Most notable are the huge heaps of unused wampum shells that lay along the area where Long Beach Hospital is today. The early English settlers who came in the late 1600s raised hogs on the drier parts of the Island — hence the early name Hog Island. Much like their counterparts throughout New York, the Hog Island Indians were stricken with disease and faced heavy oppression from the white newcomers. Those who lived through the onslaught of musketballs and smallpox moved eastward. During the American Revolution, Hog Island became a strategic stronghold over which many battles were fought. The Battle of Brooklyn gave Long Island to the British and the patriots undertook many efforts to get it back. All in all, the patriots made four landings at Hog Island and fought against the Tories. Each time, they failed to establish a foothold that would give them any strategic advantage. After the war ended, Oceanside and Hempstead farmers brought their hogs to the island to graze. In addition to hog-farming, oyster farming became a prosperous industry. Until the late 19th century, it was possible to get to the areas surrounding Hog Island by boat only. Hog Island quickly lost its isolation in 1870 when the Long Island Rail Road laid tracks from Lynbrook to Long Beach. Trains ran only in the summer months and there were two stations in Island Park. One was where Kildaire Road is today. The other stood at the southern end of the island. In the late 19th century Hog Island changed its name to Barnum Island. It has been said that the great man of circus and hoax, P.T. Barnum, bought the land to serve as a winter headquarters for his circus. In 1893, the tale continues, he removed his circus to Bridgeport, Connecticut. His frail sister, Phoebe Anne, lived on the island for a few years afterward. As Barnum himself would have said...”suckers!” In actuality, a man by the name of Peter C. Barnum gained ownership of the southeastern lands of Long Island over a period of several years. In 1874, his widow purchased Hog Island for $13,000. The island became the home of Nassau County’s poor farm and smallpox hospital. In honor of her altruistic actions, Hog Island was renamed Barnum Island. There were plans at the beginning of the 20th century to develop Barnum’s Island into the “Venice of the United States” complete with canals running throughout the island. The explosion of World War I cancelled those plans and the land was bought by the Island Park-Long Beach Corporation and Barnum’s Island was renamed Island Park. An easy enough name to choose, since the land was completely surrounded by water. Early ambitions saw Island Park as a resort center. The Island Park-Long Beach Corporation dredged the Island Park Canal and the Island Park Bay to fill in the low lying marshlands. Mud was pumped in until it was 5 feet deep and

Alyson Goodman/Herald

when it dried, it is said Island Park resembled a “large desert.” This filling operation took over a year and once completed, electric and water works were established at the end of Kildaire Road. Fifteen homes were built along Kildaire Road near the railroad tracks and were supplied with water all day and with electricity six hours a night. In the 1920s a minor building boom started at the southern end of the island, and the railroad station was relocated from the northern end of the island to the present site on Long Beach Road. This section soon became a haven for small businesses. Summer bungalows were being rapidly built due to the spectacular coastline and water activities. In fact, most of the island was developed for recreational beach, boating and fishing activities. Most beach fanatics had homes in other areas and worshiped the sun in Island Park. When the Village of Island Park was incorporated in 1926, there were fewer than 1,000 property owners. Eventually, people began to live there year round and today the population is 4,655 within the incorporated borders. Today, Island Park is made up of three areas. Beyond Island Park and to the west is Harbor Isle. It is made up mostly of one-family homes and a marina and is joined to the Village by bridges on Island Parkway and Warwick Road. The incorporated Village of Island Park lies between the canal and the Long Island Rail Road tracks. It is made up of bungalows, year-round homes and apartment houses. There are several stores on Long Beach Road, and a full range of community and religious services. Barnum Island is the land situated between the Long Island Rail Road tracks and Shell Creek. Barnum Island is the site of many industrial businesses, restaurants, private homes and the Lincoln Orens School.

sland Park is a small village that is large in character and traditions. Since its incorporation in 1926, the village has grown from a sparsely inhabited summer community of bungalows to a thriving community of beautiful homes and friendly people.

If our founding fathers could see the village now, I’m sure they would be proud of its development and what they started. The trustees and I believe that this village, with its small quaint uniqueness, is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. We are blessed by having four beautiful houses of worship: Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, United Methodist Church and the Jewish Center, all located on Long Beach Road, and the Greek Orthodox Church located on Newport Road. There is a place of prayer for all. We also have two schools, Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School on Radcliffe Road and Lincoln Orens Middle School on Trafalgar Boulevard. With its humble beginnings as a summer haven, we continue to emphasize the warmer months. We begin by honoring all those who have sacrificed their lives for our country with the annual Memorial Day Parade. There are many groups and bands that march and we conduct a ceremony at the new and beautiful American Legion Monument on Long Beach Road in the center of the village. In June, we open the Masone Beach for the season with the Jimi Gubelli 5K run/walk and the proceeds go toward local student scholarships. Our beach offers a wide variety of activities for everyone, such as free swimming lessons

and arts and crafts for children, beach volleyball for the teens, sunset yoga classes on the pier and bocce ball for seniors. There are more events through the summer, beginning with concerts at the beach. There was also a Greek Festival at the Greek Orthodox Church in August. On Labor Day weekend, the unofficial summer season came to a close with a concert and a fireworks show by Grucci. In September, the annual San Gennaro Feast was held on Long Beach Road. This event, sponsored by Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church, brings out the true character of the people living in the village. We have a lot of people who volunteer their time for this event and neighbors working with neighbors. This is Island Park at its best! When it comes to volunteering, the Island Park Volunteer Fire Department has done just that, protecting this village for 86 years, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In an everchanging world, they have always risen to the challenges with a profound sense of professionalism, courage and pride. I thank all the men and women of the department for their service to the community. During the colder months, many of our organizations continue to hold events. This includes the Interfaith Service at Thanksgiving, the Menorah Lighting for Hanukkah and Santa at the Village Hall for Christmas and a Valentines Day fundraising dance held for our wounded veterans. The village employees, trustees and I will continue to work hard to improve the quality of life in Island Park. It has been said that it takes all to make a village and I would like to thank all of you for making this village a wonderful place to live. JAMES RUZICKA Mayor, Incorporated Village of Island Park

Homecoming Prince Matthew Stein, left, Queen Krissy Mugnai, King Anthony Peruffo and Princess Amber Carmiencke rode through the streets of Oceanside before the school’s big game last autumn. A few hours later, the football team defeated Syosset, 31-15. The Oceanside School District occupies 17.3 square miles and includes parts of Baldwin and Rockville Centre. There are six elementary schools that enroll students up to the sixth grade. There is one middle school (grades 7 and 8), and one senior high school. Adjacent to the district’s administrative offices is the Merle Avenue complex, which houses the school district’s Department of Community Activities and Oceanside Counseling Center. On the Merle grounds are the school district’s own botanical garden, tennis courts, a soccer field and a track. Christian Hook (later Oceanside) became school district No. 11 in 1833. The first school, which existed from 1842-1880, was located at the northwest corner of Oceanside and Foxhurst Roads. This school consisted of one room, with an attic. Later, the Town of Hempstead made Oceanside a “common school district” and in 1899 it became the Ocean Side Union Free School District Number 11. At that time the district serviced Atlantic Beach, Point Lookout, Island Park and Long Beach. In 1925, the Board of Education

sought to obtain the status of a “Village Superintendency.” All of Nassau County was divided into two districts. Each district was headed by a superintendent who was responsible for reporting to the commissioner on matters in all districts under his jurisdiction. When these districts acquired a population in excess of 4,500, they could become independent units with their own superintendent. Oceanside was, at this time, following a pattern established in other communities such as Rockville Centre, Freeport and Baldwin. The district still maintains the form of administration it began over 65 years ago. Oceanside Board of Education (2011-12) President: Sandie Schoell Vice President: Robert M.

ISLAND PARK SCHOOLS Until 1924, children who lived in Island Park traveled to Oceanside to go to school. The first local school was established in 1927, serving children in the fourth, fifth and sixth grades; total enrollment was 50 youngsters. Younger children were taught in a storefront on Long Beach Road. It was quickly found that these schools were too small. In the three years that passed between the decision to build the school and its actual construction, several new families moved to Island Park. And so, in 1928, construction of a new brick school was undertaken. Two years later it was dedicated and christened the Radcliffe Road School. There were five classrooms, a library room and offices. After World War II, Island Park, like other parts of the country, was caught in the suburban explosion. Many more families came to Island Park and new homes were built almost every day. Eight rooms and a gym were added to the Radcliffe School. Even this addition proved too little, and in 1954 an entire second story was added that held more classrooms, a science/home economics room, and an industrial arts room. There were 500 students. But by 1959 there were 982 students, and it was voted to purchase more land in the Barnum Island area for another school. The building would contain the Audobon School for

children in K-6, and the Island Park Junior High School. In the late 1960s the Radcliffe Road School was renamed the Francis X. Hegarty School. The junior high was renamed the Lincoln Orens School. The Hegarty School educates students from pre-kindergarten through the third grade. The Lincoln Orens School is home to students from fourth to sixth grades, and middle school students in the seventh and eighth grades. Prior to 1967, Island Park high school students went to Oceanside High School. Ever since then, they have attended West Hempstead High School. Students in Island Park now have the choice to attend either West Hempstead High School or Long Beach High School.

PARKS & RECREATION MARINE NATURE STUDY AREA 500 Slice Dr., Oceanside 11572 766-1580 Tuesday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. At first glance the Oceanside/ Island Park communities appear to be full of nothing but busy shopping districts and typical suburban residential streets. But tucked away throughout the two communities are oases of serenity. Quiet waterways dot the area, and many homes boast backyard docks. In addition, there are special places where you can get back to basics. The Marine Nature Study Area is a 52-acre preserve of salt marshes, tidal creeks and uplands. The rich variety of plant and animal life make it an ideal learning center for all ages. The purpose of the area is to help foster an understanding of our local natural environment and to create an awareness of its benefits to us. The pristine habitat is bounded on the south by Middle Bay, on the east by Walls Point Creek, on the west by Bedellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creek, and on the north by a housing development. The habitat is a facility of the Town of Hempstead Department of Conservation and Waterways. The Study Area is a quiet and peaceful outdoor experience of invigorating air and breathtaking scenery, excellent for photography and observation. Since its official opening on Earth Day in April 1970, the Marine Nature Study Area has been visited by thousands of elementary school, high school and college students who have taken advantage of the free guided tour provided. There is also a self-guided booklet for the mile of boardwalks and trails. The Interpretive Center is two buildings of galleries of preserved nature, with marine life displays and salt water aquaria featuring local species. The study area is divided into eight instructional sections, each of which deals with a different aspect of the marine or estuarine environment. At each site visual aids are installed that describe a particular topic. Subjects covered include the

tides, Long Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glacial geology, barrier beach and estuarine formations, ecology of the estuary, micro and macro algae, bird life, migration, the bay community, and barrier beach fauna and flora. In developing the study area, alteration of the salt marsh was minimal. A main path and several boardwalks were placed to enable access to the marsh while at the same time preventing damage to the fragile plants and animal life. A pond was created to attract migratory waterfowl, and a variety of plants that are beneficial to wildlife were introduced on the upland fringe. Over 200 species of birds have been sighted with 25 nesting species. The Marine Nature Study Area is open to the public year round 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday. It is located on Slice Drive in Oceanside. William Overton is the supervisor.

SHELL CREEK PARK 30 Vanderbilt Ave., Island Park, 11558 431-6440 Shell Creek Park was established 17 years ago, on Vanderbilt Avenue in Barnum Island. Open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. during the summer and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the winter, the park hosts a complete range of activities. For the athlete, a pair of basketball and paddleball courts are waiting. There are large playing fields for general use. The park lends out equipment such as footballs, jump ropes and knock-hockey tables. A fully equipped playground is there for the kids, as well as a spray pool for frolicking. There is fishing on the bay, off the bulkhead, where snapper, flounder, fluke and blackhead can be caught, depending on the season. Four well-kept professional tennis courts are available. Reservations must be made because these courts are in demand. Both the baseball fields and the tennis courts are illuminated at night for the dedicated athlete. There is no fee to use the park. Only proof of residency is required. Supervisor is Mike Nova.

If you look at the contents in your wallet, you would find the most valued item is your library card! It is the most valuable, yet it is free. Your library card opens up windows to a larger world. It provides access to a gold mine of books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, computers, the Web and great customer service to help you find what you need. As part of our Youth Services, we offer Storytimes, Baby and Me programs, Summer Reading Clubs and crafts, which open the door to learning, imagination and wonder. The Library helps children do well in school by making material available that supports our schools’ curriculum, as well as offering materials and programs that are both fun and educational. We have programs in chess, classes in dance, watercolor, cooking, crafts, SAT preparation, as well as materials across all subject areas studied in school. For our Adult Services we have handicraft classes, computer classes for beginners, exercise, knitting, photography, defensive driving and many others. This fall we will be having an opera presentation, a writing workshop, Table Theater, and a financial workshop to name a few. One of the reasons many of our adult patrons use the library is to obtain the latest bestsellers. Another is the pursuit of lifelong learning. The fact that we live in a world that is constantly changing, places the Library in a unique position to be able to assist in adapting to that world by offering accurate and up-to-date information on health, careers, legal and financial issues, the arts, technology and current events, to name a few areas. The Library also opens doors of opportunity for our new Americans. In conjunction with our School District, we offer English for Speakers of Other Languages classes. We also have videos, tapes and books on learning English and getting to know American culture. The Library offers Special Services through our Homebound Service for those unable to come to the Library, and enables those with limited sight to obtain audio books through

our Talking Books program. We partner with various agencies to provide information about the new Medicare Part D, assessments and taxes. Passports and Leisure Passes can be applied for through the Nassau County vans. In the fall we will be offering Senior Connections, which provides information for seniors. Come in and use our computers, and learn how to take advantage of our new online catalog, set up your own account and reserve books online. Also, ask our librarians about our subscription databases that provide a vast array of information in every imaginable subject. They are available 24/7 on our webpage, and can be accessed from home. All of the above could not be accomplished without the hard work and dedication of our Library staff, whose ultimate mission is great customer service. Join your neighbors at some of our wonderful programs, sit and read quietly in our beautiful new facility and let our staff assist you in selecting material and finding information. And, if you already do not have one, come in and get the most valuable item in your wallet – your Library Card! 176 Long Beach Road Island Park, NY 11558 432-0122

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.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE GREETING On behalf of the Island Park Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank you for all your support this past year. So far this year, the Chamber hosted a networking mixer at Panchoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cantina Restaurant as well as a Summer Kickoff Party at Popâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seafood Grill and a Calypso BBQ on our beautiful Masone Beach. The Mixer at Panchoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cantina was a great networking event coupled with excellent food and drinks. The Summer Kickoff Party at Popâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seafood Grill was a huge success with more than 150 paid attendees. All attendees took in a beautiful June evening while enjoying the beach-like atmosphere provided by one of Island Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular venues. Our Second Annual Calypso BBQ on Masone Beach, right here in the Village of Island Park, was even more successful than the first one, with more attendees who enjoyed live Calypso music with great food and drinks, on a beautiful night. This was the Island Park Chamber of Commerceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenth event in the past 18 months. The Chamber is making strides, and so too is the surrounding community and the Chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s members as a result. Also, earlier this year the Island Park Chamber of Commerce erected a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shop Island Parkâ&#x20AC;? sign at the north entrance of the village. This sign was erected as part of the Island Park Chamber of Commerceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing campaign to showcase the businesses in Island Park and raise awareness in the community about patronizing your local restaurants, delis, shops and vendors.

In another move to aid the business owners in Island Park, the Chamber submitted a written proposal to the Island Park Village Board proposing an increase in the parking time limits on Long Beach Road from one to two hours. I am proud to report that the Island Park Village Board adopted this proposal and is changing the parking time limitations. On Oct. 25, 2012, the Chamber will be hosting its annual awards dinner at Bridgeview Yacht Club. The Chamber will be presenting awards for Business Person of the Year and Community Service Person of the Year. In addition, the Chamber will be honoring Henry â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mickeyâ&#x20AC;? Hastava and Harvey Gertler with Distinguished Service Awards. In parting, I would once again like to thank all of you for making this a very special year and I hope that when you are considering purchasing services or products, you consider the businesses located within our community before looking elsewhere. Thank you. For information regarding our upcoming events, becoming a member of the Island Park Chamber of Commerce or how you can advertise on the Chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, visit www.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE GREETING This year’s Almanac is filled with useful information, and I strongly urge you to do business with the members of the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce. Our members provide friendly, knowledgeable and personal service, and every time you shop in Oceanside you support our local economy. Our chamber is an advocate for businesses and helps members to succeed and prosper by networking, education and referrals. It is also the voice of business with government leaders about issues involving our community. Both Nassau County Legislators Howard Kopel and Denise Ford and Town of Hempstead Councilman Tony Santino communicate openly and frequently with the chamber members, and keep us informed of issues that will affect the business and residential communities. As residents and business owners, we have a stake in this area. And by working together, we can safeguard our interests and blend our talents to insure a better Oceanside community for all. GAIL S. CARLIN President Oceanside Chamber of Commerce
