Passport to Labor Day Weekend Events
Labor Day weekend provides one last chance for families and visitors alike to take in all that Oyster Bay has to offer via the Passport to Historic Oyster Bay. With thoughts of "back to school" in mind, why not spend the time to learn more about the treasures in our community? The nonprofit educational and cultural institutions of Oyster Bay have plenty to offer. The following is a schedule of activities for Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 4 and 5.
Local Youth Stand for the Environment
Several local students from the 16th and 18th districts who have been actively involved in the environment and land preservation recently met with Nassau County Presiding Officer Judy Jacobs (D-Woodbury) and Legislator Diane Yatauro (D-Glen Cove). The students attended a meeting of the Nassau County Legislature on Tuesday, Aug. 24, to demonstrate their approval of the placement of a referendum on this November's ballot that would authorize the county to issue a $50 million bond for Clean Water, Open Space Protection and Parks.
Single Golfers of LI Third Benefit
On Sunday, July 11, the Third Annual Marilyn Broderick Memorial Golf Tournament was held at the Glen Cove Golf Course. Marilyn was a member of two Long Island Golf Groups (Golf for Single Adults and Single Golfers of Long Island). Ms. Broderick passed away three years ago from leukemia, and Pat Power, a member of both groups decided to run a Tournament in her name to raise money for the LI Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The first two years, the Tournament was sponsored by Golf for Single Adults, and took place at the Shelter Island Golf Course and at the Lido Beach Golf Course the second year. This year's tournament was sponsored by Single Golfers of Long Island. Members of both groups participated, as well as did family members and friends.
National KidsDay Is a Big Success!
August 1 was National KidsDay, a day for adults and kids to spend meaningful time together. Boys & Girls Clubs across the country planned parties, parades, and special events in celebration of this important day. Locally, the Boys & Girls Club of Oyster Bay-East Norwich, the Waterfront Center, and the Oyster Bay Anglers planned a day of fun for members and their families.
