Orchard Beach is not getting older, it's getting better. This was the message from elected officials and community leaders today as they gathered to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Orchard Beach.

It was a perfect day for fun in the sun, as the celebration began on the the sand, with a photo opportunity for the members of the NY Press Corps, followed by comments and ended with maneuvers by members of our US armed forces. Orchard Beach was full of happy City Islanders and may other local residents, who turned out to celebrate our military and Orchard Beach.
