The Change of Watch, an annual event to introduce the officers and trustees who will be running the Sagamore Yacht Club for the coming year, was held on Feb. 1 at the club house.
Vice Commodore Jerry Lalonde, acting as Master of Ceremonies, welcomed everyone and called for the Pledge of Allegiance.
He acknowledged the past commodores who were present—Greg Bradley, Dave Roach and Richard Benson—then introduced the present commodore, Mike Gehrling, who introduced the rest of the officers.
In addition to Vice Commodore Lalonde, the other officers are Rear Commodore Kevin Curry, Secretary Deanna Flanagan and Treasurer Constantine Baris.
Commodore Gehrling acknowledged the Board of Trustees Keith Swanson, Tony Miraglia, Ken Deering, Ray Wulff, Dave Roach, Bill Peterson, Jeanne Lafiteau and two new trustees, Bill Mullan and Alan Schaub.
The commodore then thanked all the committee chair people for their hard work in keeping the club house in great shape and for running all the many events that went on during the past year,174 in all. Events included functions specifically for families, for adults and for children.
New for the coming season, the Sea Scouts will be meeting at Sagamore Yacht Club. This, along with the very successful Junior Sailing program, helps to foster the love of boating and the importance of safety on the water.
Decorations for this event included a huge ice sculpture of a fish; a delicious dinner followed.

Oyster Bay High School Principal Dr. Dennis O’Hara addressed the board of education at Tuesday night’s meeting about offering a summer school program at the high school. It would be the first time the district had a summer school program in more than 12 years.
Dr. O’Hara explained that with the institution of the Common Core state standards, students are faced with a greater level of academic rigor and more challenging coursework. The program would offer remedial and enrichment classes for students both in and out of district.

But on the Oyster Bay line, riders are lucky in that they don’t experience the same level of stress over parking as some of the busier lines do.
“The Oyster Bay station never seems to get that crowded, but we’ll see what happens during Thanksgiving holiday when a lot of people come to visit families. I don’t think I’ll have a problem commuting, though,” says Michael Miniero, an Oyster Bay resident who regularly commutes to work on the LIRR.

In the history of Oyster Bay High School athletics, no one has ever won a Girls’ Tennis New York State Championship. Celeste Matute and Courtney Kowalsky became the first when they won the 2014 New York State Doubles Championship in Latham on Nov. 3. What makes this tremendous achievement even more remarkable is that Matute is a junior and Kowalsky is a sophomore.
The girls, who are usually singles players, teamed up to take on the very best players in Nassau County and New York State. They won all 10 matches in the section XIII and NYSPHSAA tournaments and left Latham as the 2014 New York State doubles champions.
