ROCKY POINT, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined the Rocky Point Historical Society for their 21st Annual Tea on Sunday, October 15th, at VFW Post 6249 in Rocky Point. The annual tea brought together historical society members and local residents for a special program that included a variety of teas, sandwiches and desserts, raffle prizes, and special guest Abraham Lincoln, as portrayed by Lou Del Bianco. Mr. Del Bianco’s portrayal of President Lincoln has been endorsed by the Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
“I commend the Rocky Point Historical Society for their dedication to promoting our local heritage,” said Legislator Anker. “Rocky Point has great historical value and the members of the society work hard to ensure that our local landmarks are preserved and historic figures are honored for their contributions. It is always a pleasure to attend the annual tea to support the historical society.”
