East Main Street Fair Starts the Holiday Season
Last weekend kept its promise to be a real reminder of what the holidays feel like in a small town - in the beautiful hamlet of Oyster Bay. The fun was created as the First Presbyterian Church, Christ Church and Doubleday Babcock Senior Center joined forces Nov. 18 and 19 to create a wonderful holiday event. The fun started Friday evening and spilled over into Saturday. People kept meeting each other as events took place in the three venues.
Holidays in Oyster Bay Kicks Off
Holidays in Oyster Bay are once again being presented by a group of local sponsoring organizations which will make the hamlet aglow with activities. The Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce, the Oyster Bay Civic Association and the Main Street Association are working together to bring you their annual Holidays in Oyster Bay. Adding their special events to the mix are Raynham Hall Museum and the Oyster Bay Rail Road Museum as well as the the Oyster Bay Historical Society with its current exhibit Upstairs, Downstairs in Oyster Bay, open throughout the season. The events should give everyone great reasons to come to the hamlet, to shop, eat and socialize.

Joining together for a good cause, the 13 staff members divided themselves into three teams. Their shirts, which read "For Sal," reflected their common goal.
