Wanted to touch base with all my readers. Happy New Year to all of you who take the time to read this. This year is kind of special for the Mastic Peninsula Local History Society as its the 20 year anniversary of its founding in 1999. I’m proud to be a part of a great group of people who are devoted to preserving and protecting the areas local history resources.
If you have time, head over to my “our forgotten history series” for story no. 15 about Augustus Floyd and Emily Gardiner. Included are some great photographs of the family and Estate.
Looking forward to attending the ceremony for our latest Historical Sign Marker commemorating the Mastic RR Station. Will also be installing an update to the MPHS website, coming soon. Keep me posted and as always, I welcome submissions or your comments.
