Tree Lighting 2010



Part 1     Part2


Attention ALL Brookwood Hall Alumni!!

Several of the folks who lived and grew up at Brookwood Hall are trying to put together a written History of the Orphanage. We have gotten several wonderful reminisces thru email so far and are looking to gather more information and pictures. If you attended, or interacted with anyone who attended Brookwood Hall in East Islip please email us with your memories, scan and email or regular mail any photo's you may have and we will gladly copy them and send them back.
