Special Olympics Long Island Region, R-UNDEAD 5k Zombie Run The rUNDEAD is a 5k trail run with some obstacles ... zombies! Each runner starts off with a flag belt and three flags. These flags represent runner lifelines. Zombies throughout the course will be attempting to take these one at a time.

Time: 12:00 pm

Ceremony of Remembrance - Two shipwrecks 178 Years Ago Please join members of The Historical Society of East Rockaway and Lynbrook, and Ancient Order of Hibernians of Nassau County as they gather to conduct a Ceremony of Remembrance. For more information call Art Mattson 516-887-7673 (HSERL) Each year in the autumn a small group gathers at the Rockville Cemetery on the border of Lynbrook and Rockville Centre to honor the sacrifices made by so many immigrants in quest of their dream, a life in the United States of America. A tall marble obelisk in the center of the cemetery marks the mass grave of the unclaimed bodies of 139 people – most of them Irish – who perished in two shipwrecks on the South Shore of Long Island. Saturday, November 22nd will honor the 178th anniversary of the two tragedies in which 215 people in all died. You are invited to attend this year’s observance, sponsored by the Ancient Order of Hibernians of Nassau County and the Historical Society of East Rockaway and Lynbrook. In November 1836, two American ships were traveling from Liverpool to New York loaded with of tons of cargo and immigrants, when tragedy struck. One hundred passengers and crewmen drowned on the three-masted ship Bristol as it lay on a sand bar 400 yards off Rockaway Beach in a storm. A few weeks later 115 men, women, and children froze to death on the deck of the three-masted barque Mexico, just 200 yards off Long Beach. Their dying moans could be heard from shore. The twin tragedies were the biggest Long Island news stories of the 1830s. The events had a tremendous impact locally and nationally: Long Islanders formed a funeral cortege of 300 horse drawn wagons; Currier & Ives published prints; Walt Whitman wrote about the wrecks in Leaves of Grass; the Supreme Court issued an important opinion; the New York harbor pilot system was totally overhauled; the Ambrose Light was permanently stationed in the New York Bight; the U.S. Lifesaving Service got its start; and the predecessor to the U.S. Coast Guard added sea rescues to its mission — all because of these two wrecks. A few years ago, Art Mattson, Lynbrook Historian & member of the Historical Society of East Rockaway & Lynbrook, wrote a book telling the stories of the two shipwrecks, its passengers, and the changes that were brought about because of the shipwrecks.
