Margaret A. “Peggy” Carlstrom of Locust Valley died on March 31, 2014, at age 87. Beloved wife of the late Warren “Pee Wee.” Loving mother of Ellen Horman (Ron), Eric (Keri), Otto (Stephanie), Beth (Frank) and the late Warren and Pamela. Dear sister of Ed Eaton, the late Tom, Jim, Mimi and Jack. Proud grandmother of Ron Meghan (Chris), Kristin, Rebecca, Dylan, Caitlyn, Magnus, Erik and Colin.
Our grandmother was an exceptional woman. She was brave, spirited, and full of sage advice that helped shape the lives of everyone she knew. Her unwavering devotion to her family, which she expressed with kindness, strength and a touch of Irish wit, could lift even the lowest of spirits. Grandma Peg taught her children, grandchildren and everyone else who had the pleasure of knowing her how to live a meaningful life; a life full of gratitude for all our blessings. Whenever I expressed grief about loss, Grandma Peg would share an old Irish adage: “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

One of Oyster Bay’s newest summer traditions is Dancing in the Street, which takes place every Friday in July at the gazebo in town. Sponsored by the Oyster Bay Main Street Association, half of Audrey Avenue is closed off and a DJ is called in for a great night of community dancing from 7-9 p.m.
“This is a great tradition and a beautiful town,” said visitor Michaela Lachance from Cooperstown, NY. “Everyone is having a wonderful time.”

Last week, Sea Cliff Mayor Bruce Kennedy officially announced his candidacy for New York State’s 5th Senate District. The previous week, he became a Democrat after being ousted by the Nassau GOP as a Republican Assembly Candidate for implementing New York’s Marriage Equality Law and officiating same sex weddings.
“This is about being a public servant,” Kennedy said. “I took an oath to uphold the constitution and the laws of the State of New York.”

A total of 11 members of St. Dominic Track Team (grades 1-8) recently medaled at the Nassau-Suffolk CYO Championship Finals at Mitchel Field. In the finals, the athletes competed against the finalists from all three regions, representing more than 2,500 athletes from 23 other parishes.
In addition to the student athletes’ success, the track coaches were honored as well. St. Dominic CYO Track coaches Phil Schade (grades 1-3), Julie and Mike Keffer (grades 4-6) and Rich Cameron (grades 7-8) were selected by peer coaches in their region for the NSCYO Team Sportsmanship Award. The Saint Dominic CYO track program, in its second year, has already proven to be a force to be reckoned with and the young runners are among the best on Long Island.
