Southwest Lynbrook Civic Association Records, 1929-1956

The Southwest Lynbrook Civic Association, Inc., was created in 1929 to implement civic consciousness among the community of this unincorporated part of the town of Hempstead in Nassau County, New York, in the southwest of the village of Lynbrook, between Sunset Avenue, Mansfield Place, Broadway and Union Avenue, according to the constitution and by-laws. This association was still operating at the time of the gift (1969).

The records include the constitution and bylaws, minutes, reports and correspondence of the Southwest Lynbrook Civic Association Incorporated from its establishment in 1929 to 1956. The minutes of the regular and executive board meetings make up the bulk of the material. The minutes disclose problems of paving, street signs, lighting, sanitation, zoning, fire protection, war (civil) defense and neighborhood pride. Some of these minutes are handwritten. Included are the names inscribed on the Service Roll Plaque commemorating those from the Southwest Lynbrook area who were serving in the armed forces of the United States in 1943.
