Hometown Holidays Happen in Oyster Bay
This year's Holidays in Oyster Bay parade was a real "hometown" event. Because of the defeat of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich School budget and being on contingency the school district is not allowed to participate in any events outside the school. As a result the Oyster Bay Community Band and the Chamber Singers were not there to entertain the audience. Instead the local churches responded and created a combined choir of children from Christ Church, First Presbyterian and St. Dominic's. They sang old favorites a capella and the audience was asked to join in the singing. It made for a wonderful hometown Christmas for the community.
