Scam Awareness

Scam Awareness program will be hosted by Legislator Gaylor.  We are coordinating with Nassau County’s Office of Crime Victim Advocate, Office for the Aging, NCPD Community Affairs and Family & Children Association (FCA) to offer this scam presentation. While seniors remain the highest targeted audience by scam artists, the proliferation of scams is now affecting other age groups as well and we have found this program to be of great interest to our residents.

LOCATION: Community Room
There are 49 spaces available.

Escape from Behind Enemy Lines

Escape from Behind Enemy Lines  (80th Anniversary of D-Day)

The Shelburne Line was a World War II escape network operating in occupied France which returned 136 allied servicemen to England in 1943-44. The French Resistance located downed airmen and hid them from the Germans utilizing a series of safe-houses. Once a month—during dark of the moon—the men were transported to the Brittany coast to meet a British motor gun boat which would return them to England. Join Rick Feingold, as he recounts the story of how his father, Lt. Louis Feingold, a B-17 U.S. Army Air Force navigator, escaped Nazi capture.
