OB-EN Chamber Expands Bay Day And Doubles The Fun Family Event

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi: dkarppi@antonnews.com Friday, 22 June 2012 00:00

Doubling Bay Day made for three times the visitors

Visitors to Bay Day 2012 had the opportunity to view what happens on a daily basis in Oyster Bay — on the land and on the water. Walter Imperatore of Renaissance Properties co-chaired the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Chamber of Commerce’s (OB-EN CC) part of Bay Day with Michele Browner, president.

Bay Day was run using local people including: local artists, the Oyster Bay Youth Athletic Association kids, who took over the new ball fields at the Theodore Roosevelt Park, and participants from the Tuesday’s Cruise Night car shows and the Farmers Market. “Dancing in the Streets was supposed to take place but was rained out,” said Mr. Imperatore. “The Bay Day events highlighted all the things that normally take place in Oyster Bay.”

Oyster Festival 2012 Showcase Ship Is The Peacemaker Out of Georgia

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi: dkarppi@antonnews.com Friday, 08 June 2012 00:00

Oyster Festival weekend countdown to October 13 and 14 begins

Kerry Gillick Goldberg, Oyster Festival 2012 promoter, announced they have found the showcase ship for the October 13 and 14 event. “It’s the Peacemaker and she’s a beauty,” she said. Oyster Festival Committee Tall Ships co-chair Jennifer Sappell (with James Werner) said, “It’s a magnificent, elegant and glamorous boat, but it’s not a historical one. It’s an unusual boat. It was off the Carolinas, and took second place in Op Sail in New Orleans. It was the second choice for the festival? The first place went to a government-sponsored ship from Indonesia, the KRI Dewaruci. It had 70 costumed dancers in the rigging.”

Finding a tall ship in this economy was a real task. Ms. Sappell (the Long Island North Shore Heritage area executive director) said, “In these economic times, normal people can’t keep tall ships anymore. The economics of running them is impossible to maintain. Here with the Peacemaker, you have a devoted crew that are together because of their philosophical belief.”

Two new exhibit facilities are introduced at ceremony

Sagamore Hill National Historic Site (SHHNS) stepped back in time as it held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the Farm Shed and Chicken House on May 26. The two new interpretive exhibit facilities are intended to show that Sagamore Hill was actually a working farm.

“You are here at a moment in history,” said SHHNS Superintendent Thomas Ross. “It is the official start of the summer season at Sagamore Hill, over the Memorial Day weekend, when we honor the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country.”

Civic groups partner and party together for the community’s good

It was basically a very nice party for a lot of civic-minded people when the East Norwich and Oyster Bay civic associations held their annual joint cocktail party on May 18. The event alternates between the Sagamore Yacht Club (this year) and the Pine Hollow Country Club (next year) in 2013, ad infinitum. The event is run – at cost – with the profits coming from raffles and a 50/50. The two civics use the funds for a scholarship to an Oyster Bay High School graduating senior, for beautification projects, for holiday decorations and other worthy causes.

Drugs And Vandalism In Hamlet Causes Concern

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi: dkarppi@antonnews.com Friday, 25 May 2012 00:00

Residents are asked to report vandalism to local authorities

While everyone wants to think of drug problems as happening in other areas, it appears to be here in Oyster Bay, too. At the May 19 Oyster Bay Civic Association meeting, Bob Martin told the group that a friend gave him a small plastic bag that was found at Marino Fields on BerryHill Road. It was small enough to hold a pair of earrings, and had contained drugs. Additionally at the Theodore Roosevelt Park athletic fields, there was found a second empty bag, and then a third bag that contained a white powder, which was given to the police. Mr. Martin was concerned that young people are using drugs. “An act that can lead to their death,” he said.

“As a community we have to watch that, too,” said Mr. Martin who has been championing traffic safety in the Oyster Bay-East Norwich area. “Fathers should be aware – this is death.” He said a neighbor, a mother of four, gave him the drug packets that she spotted in the fields. The police have been informed, but Mr. Martin wanted parents to be watchful of the problem in regards to their own children.

 

Senator Gillibrand Pushes Feds To Update Fluke Study

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi: dkarppi@antonnews.com Friday, 25 May 2012 00:00

New study could help determine more accurate quotas on summer flounder/fluke

Oyster Bay Harbor is known as a good fishing location, therefore the request of U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) who urged the U.S. Commerce Secretary to immediately update the years-old national study assessing the population of summer flounder is welcome. The study could impact quotas for Long Island fishermen. With summer flounder season beginning, Senator Gillibrand pointed out that a new assessment is overdue and must include new scientific data to accurately determine the fish population and summer flounder quotas.

Tom Swiencki, of the Oyster Bay Marine Supply, explains: “Summer flounder is better known around here as fluke. South of New Jersey they call them summer flounder. That’s because they don’t have winter flounder, but we do.” 

 

Lions Club Of Oyster Bay Supports America’s VetDogs And Guide Dogs

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi: dkarppi@antonnews.com Friday, 18 May 2012 00:00

Members and guests show their compassion for those challenged

The purpose of the Lions Club of Oyster Bay’s spring benefit is always to raise funds for the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind (GDF) and their America’s VetDogs (AVD) as well as other worthy causes. This year’s benefit event, held at the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club (SCYC) on April 29, allowed people to get a better idea of the GDF and the people they serve.

In 2003, the GDF recognized the need for an overall assistance dog program for veterans that would incorporate guide dogs, service dogs and state-of-the-art mobility devices – especially as our nation’s veterans age and as our country’s wounded warriors return home from active conflicts abroad.
