Centre Avenue fourth-graders visited the Lynbrook Library for the 2017 Retrospective hosted by the Historical Society of East Rockaway and Lynbrook. 

Students learned many exciting facts about the history of East Rockaway. Topics included the Grist Mill, world famous chef Henri Chaprentier and the Rockville Cemetery’s Bristol & Mexico Monument. During this interactive trip, students were able to explore a replica of the Grist Mill, churn wheat into flour and role-play a scene from Chaprentier’s famous restaurant, the Original Henri Restaurant.
