Young People Thanked by CSAC
The holidays are here and the Community Social Action Committee (CSAC) is working to make sure they will be wonderful for everyone in the Oyster Bay-East Norwich area. Carol and Randy Daub are co-chairing the annual Holiday Sharing Program of CSAC, a committee of the Interreligious and Human Needs Council of Oyster Bay. The couple was happy with the response from the community. "People are sending us money in response to our mass mailing. It will give us money to get food certificates for Christmas," said Carol Daub in the midst of organizing the Thanksgiving dinner program.
Trio Reaches the Stars for Christmas
Charleen Niznik can be proud of the work of her trio committee. The joint efforts of the three organizations, the Oyster Bay Civic Association, the Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce and the Main Street Association, have created the best holiday season for Oyster Bay in many years. The festivities started on Sunday, Dec. 1, at 2 p.m., at the Atlantic Steamer Fire House with Santa sitting in his sleigh pulled by two reindeer. The sleigh, a float, was decorated with lights and was pulled by two reindeer created with red and white sparkling lights.
Heard on the Bay
This is the time of year when we usually review our log and record how many days we've spent on the water the previous summer. The average has been 70 days for the past several years, even though, because of business obligations, we have not been able to go on a full week's vacation. Next summer though, we hope to get away for an extended two-week sailing vacation in July or August.
