In the first week of the war a small item appeared in the news to the effect that a gift of 3 ½ acres for a second park had been deeded by the Museum, gratefully accepted by Mayor Dow.  This was the same land around ‘pollywog pond’ offered for free ‘temporary’ use back in 1933.  In 1943 the Village Board by solemn resolution renamed this parcel to honor the first man from Munsey Park, New York, to lose his life in the service of his country, Lieutenant George Raymond Waldmann. On Memorial Day in 1946 a touching commemoration was conducted by the American Legion at Waldmann Park to honor all the men of Manhasset, and our country, who would not return.
