Our 120th Anniversary celebration was a resounding success. 

Here’s what one guest said:

Just wanted to express my appreciation to the dinner committee for all their hard work in making such a lovely event tonight at CTI. What a great idea to honor the families who have been members for over 50 years. It was very meaningful to us, the children who grew up in Glen Cove, and so nice that a significant number of our generation were able to attend and honor our parents. Wishing you (at least) 120 more years.

All the best,

Alice Shooman Lebowitz
