"SGT. BILL"

THE BAESSLERS AT ST. JUDE'S ROLLER RINK 1954

In the summer of 2006 I had the very good fortune and pleasure to be able to interview both Bill & Gloria Baessler about the early days of life in Mastic Beach and Bill's career with the Brookhaven Town Police from 1949 - 1959. Gloria Chester Baessler had lived there even before Bill did (since the 1930's ) and provided some very interesting stories about what life was like back then. You can read & see the photos from that interview here.
