Oceanside Education Foundation lost a great friend and a true gentleman on
Friday, January 5, 2007.
Mr. Joseph O'Meara
was Assistant Director of Oceanside School District Building and Grounds.
Several summers ago, Joe, along with John Hendricken and Bob Schloth, picked up hammer and nails to put together the gazebo on Schoolhouse Green.Since then, the Schoolhouse Green Gazebo has been the focal point of celebrations from spring crafts fairs to winter caroling.
In memory of Joe and his countless contributions in building Schoolhouse Green, we plan to place a plaque in his honor on the gazebo, so all who come to enjoy a warm summer's day or crisp autumn afternoon there will know that Joe's selfless efforts helped make the Green a reality.
SCHOOLHOUSE GREEN GAZEBO
A beautiful Victorian-style gazebo now graces the Green!
The gazebo arrived from Pennsylvania's Amish Country ready to be assembled.
Luckily, we had a team of brilliant assemblers who built a base and put the gazebo in place.
Many thanks to Bobby Schloth, John Hendricken and Joe O'Meara who made building the gazebo look like a walk in the park!
