East Meadow, NY – Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano joined members of the Long Island Swimming Club on Thursday, August 10th at the Aquatic Center in Eisenhower Park, to thank them for their help in funding the center’s new outdoor practice pool, which was just used for last week’s US Open Swimming Championships, and this week’s Junior National Championships. Mangano was also joined by Jim Sheehan, President of USA Swimming and representatives from Discover Long Island, to tout the economic benefits and rise in tourism that these events have brought to Nassau County.
