Good Afternoon Everyone,

Please excuse any cross posts.  This is just to remind you that this year’s Long Island History Committee’s Genealogy and Local History Program Showcase is on Thursday, April 27 at SCLS.  We have a wonderful variety of programmers this year, so I hope you’ll be able to join us.  Refreshments will be served at 9:30 AM and the presentations will run from 10:00 AM to approximately 12:00 Noon.  There will also be time before and after the presentations to speak to the programmers.
