Three Candidate Vie for Two OBEN Board Seats
I'm running for a seat on the board of education. Last year when the school budget was defeated for a second time I was very disheartened that our children and community were faced with the dilemma of a contingency budget. I am a firm believer that a strong academic and well-rounded environment is extremely important for our schools. I also believe that it is equally as important to address the issue of rising taxes and to keep increases to a minimum while maintaining school programs.
Once you finally have the boat of your dreams, the typical right of passage is to name her. Naming the boat to some boat owners is a big deal. For many boaters the boat becomes a part of their identity thus the name of the boat becomes significant.
Whatever Floats Your Boat
The always popular Anything That Floats Race will once again be a featured event of the WaterFront Center's 6th annual Bay Day on Sunday, June 4, at Beekman Beach in Oyster Bay. Don't miss this wacky fun race, which challenges participants to create an outrageous floating device made of nontraditional materials. The race is a great way to jump-start a summer full of fun in the outdoors.
