The Oyster Festival 'Your Way'
This year you can visit the Oyster Festival "your way." You can come by car, railroad or boat; come free on the weekend or pay to dance the night away at a waterfront gala; visit the waterfront, the children's entertainment center and the food court. You can buy arts and crafts, listen to free music at three stages or sail on the harbor; eat oysters "your way", fried, raw and in chowder.
OB Rail Road Fans Celebrate
The Friends of Locomotive #35 Committee held their second annual membership meeting in what will become the Oyster Bay Rail Road Museum on Saturday, Sept. 7. They also, fortuitously, used the day to observe the centennial of the Oyster Bay landmarked Long Island Rail Road station. Hopefully the brightness of the sun portended the future of the museum and the Friends. Chairman Ben Jankowski noted the presence of President Steve Torborg, Treasurer Cathy Manning Torborg, Events Chairman Jim Muhr, board member John Specce and Dave Morrison. He encouraged all who could to remain after the meeting for a special event to see and hear President Theodore Roosevelt (as portrayed by Jim Foote) and listen to a brief talk by noted author and LIRR historian Vincent Seyfried.
