RCC was a great place (moved in: 1952; married there: 1973)

By Steve Shakin (1966),  from the Wheatley Alumni Newsletter

Reading about the Roslyn Country Club brings back many memories. My family moved to Roslyn Heights (the S Section) in 1952, and we were always members of the RCC. I spent many an afternoon lying on a towel on the hard concrete behind the locker rooms. I remember the food concession, run by a man with an accent named “Sam.” The club was owned by a Mr. Hermanson. We used to sneak in at night to swim, and we were often chased by his big Great Dane, named “Diablo.” We played a lot of tennis and handball. I actually got married there in 1973. Still married.  The RCC was a great place.
