B haven-So. $60 , 000 Re BROOKHAVEN — An . extensive building and re- development program , to cost an estimated $60 , 000 , was voted into effect b y the membershi p of the Brook- haven-South Haven Presb y- terian Church here at a spe- cial congregational meeting last Monday nig ht. Plans call for removal of the historic Presbyterian Church building in South Haven from its present site , and placing it in the village of Brookhaven on a 6.5 acre plot of land purchased by the church last year. This building would be carefully restored to its historic period , but with moder- nized plumbing and heating. Also , a part of the whole plan is the erection of new Christian education facilities. This may be accomplished by rebuilding the Carriage House which is presently located on the new site in Brook- haven , or by adding directly on to the restored church. In any event , the Carriage House will be moved to a new location on the property, and the congregation has authorized the employment of an architect , Thaddeus R. L. Lazarr of New York City, to ad- vise on these matters , and to carry out the restorations. The Presbyterian congregation , now centered in Brookhaven , is one of the older religious institi- tions on Long Island. Originally designated as the Meeting House in the Parish of South Haven , the church dates from some time im- mediately preceding the year 1717. It is known that the Rev. George Phillips labored \ at the south\ from 1697-1739. The first meet- ing house was erected in 1740 , al- ROSY §fWfpik DREAMS ^ F^p COM E §^3flL Takes a down-to-earth approach to make those floating- in-tlic-clouds dreams come true! Hut it' s simple.

The build- ing now standing in South Haven , and which is to be moved and re- stored , was rebuilt in 1828 , follow- ing, a disastrous fire. For almost half of a century, this Presbyterian Church was the only worship center on the south shore of Long Island from Babylon to Southampton , a distance of some GO miles. The recent history of the church , according to the minister , the Rev. Charles A. Kellogg, suggests great promise for the future in Brookhaven. The congregation has received over 50 new members in the past two years , while the Churc h School has rapidly been outgrowing its present facilities. Most encouraging, says the Rev . Ai r. Kellogg, is the attitude of the whole membership, an attitude of excitement , a readiness to work and adventure. Preliminary designs for the situating of all buildings on the new site in Brookhaven have al- read y been prepared by the archi-, tect , Mr. Lazarr. These designs are essentially the same as those exhibited in the Brookhaven Li- bra ry during the fall of last year. ?The church would be on a hill- s ide , facing South Country Road , with driveways entering from Beaver Dam Road and parking lot to the rear. On its hillside location , the church would command a sweeping view of the village of Brookhaven , and the tall steeple could be seen for mile s from any direction. The beautiful grounds would eventually be laid out with formal ga rdens and a fountain , with secluded centers for medita- tion. Length y discussion among the members at ihe congregational meeting indicates that everyone expects a struggle in realizing these ideals , and that everyone within the membership is prepared to make unusual financial sacri- fices. It is hoped that the com- munities of Brookhaven , South Haven , and Bellport will support the undertaking, for the building to be restored is one of the tradi- tional religious landmarks on the south shore. Preparations for the financial campaign are not yet completed , but no doubt the drive will be initiated in the Spring or Fall of this year , with the desire to complete the entire project by early 19G1. • . • BELLPORT NEWS ITEMS Margaret Warner , BEIIport 7-06SS William Richards of South Howell' s Point Road , vice presi- dent of The Peop les National Bank of Patchogue , ' and Herman Cham- berlain of North Howell' s ' Point Road , vice president of The Bell- port National Bank , left Sunday to attend the Bankers Institute for Consumer Credit Management which is being held at the Hote l Thayer on the West Point campus from February 28 to March 11.

BEIIport 7-0860 Federal Construction Grant Of $98 , 000 Allotted Dist. 4 IP Ian New Kreamer Vote: BELLPORT—With the receipt of formal notification from the U. S. Depart- ment of Health , Ed u cation and Welfare of an outri ght Federal construction grant of $98 , 000 to Central School District 4 , the Board of Education Monday ni ght de- cided to schedule another vote on an addi tion to the Kreamer Street Elementary School sometime during the week of Apr il 3 , the definite dates to be set next week. Allotted under Public Law 815 , the Federa l grant is being given to hel p to provide minimum school facilities for children considered unhoused whose parents are con- nected with Federal projects. The money will be held in escrow for 45 days and if no action is taken by the district within that time the funds are subject to cancella- tion , William II. Curtis , supervis- ing princi pal of the district , s a id Tuesday. With the $98 , 000 grant , he said , it would not be necessary to float such a $255 , 000 bond issue as heretofo re figured for construc- tion as the entire amount from the Federal government could be ex- pected to come through in about a year and a half. The district would receive ten per cent of the grant immediately upon f&vorable action on construction , 50 per cent when the contract for the job is signed , 30 per cent when the pro- ject is 75 per cent completed and ten per cent when all bills are paid , Air. Curtis exp l a ined. The April vote will be the fifth to be held on the construction of a seven-classroom addition to the K reamer Street School. In each of the previous votes the addition received a favorable majority of votes , but failed of the required two-thirds majority. Last Wednes- day voters of the district polled 1 ,041 yes votes , 610 no , for the addition. In the same voting period Wed- nesday a proposition to purchase a site for a ne>v senior high school received a 'JOG yes , 683 no vote , lacking also a two-thirds majority. This proposition has been dropped as the options on the property proposed for purchase , along Head- of-the-Neck v.wl Alunsell Roads , expired Al a rc h 1.
