TR Statue Finds Safe Haven as Triangle Site Is Prepared

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 15 October 2010 00:00

If you’ve noticed that the statue of Theodore Roosevelt is no longer sitting in front of the Boys & Girls Club of Oyster Bay-East Norwich, not to worry. The two and a half ton statue is off for a cleaning and waxing to get it ready for its “monumental day” when it is placed atop its new location in the triangle at the corner of Berry Hill Road and South Street.

Keeping Order in the (Food) Court

Last in a series on the people who make the Oyster Festival happen.

Beverly Zembko has overseen the Oyster Festival Food Court since 2000, in its current location at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park, when she took it over from Michael Corssen. She had been working in the food court since the second Oyster Festival, (now its the 27th) fundraising for Oyster Bay Cooperative Preschool. Over those years she has gained a great deal of expertise on how to make it all work.

Working with the arts and crafts vendors at the annual Oyster Festival is right up Mel Warren’s alley. Mel Warren has been participating in Arts & Crafts events for 25 years. He comes by his involvement with the arts and crafts people naturally because he is one of them - another independent type and a leather craftsman himself.

Main Street Association Gives Progress Report

Speakers’ Underlying Theme Was ‘At Heart: I’m From Oyster Bay’

This year’s Main Street Association annual meeting was held in the – still under construction – Octagon Hotel. It heralded what has been one of the most promising changes in the hamlet’s streetscape this year. It was amazing to walk up to the building on Sept. 16 as the heavy rains from the thunderstorm/tornadoes that hit the area had just ended. The porch lights were on and the Octagon Hotel was very welcoming.

Two Very Different Paths to Oyster Festival Chair

The fourth of a series on the people who make the Oyster Festival happen.

Ten years ago, the last thing on Paul Rosen’s mind was the East Coast’s largest waterfront festival. “I was entirely caught up in my career,” recalled Mr. Rosen. A self-described city kid, he never even heard of the Oyster Festival.

Together, This Duo Books the Tall Ships

The Tall Ships sailing into sunlit Oyster Bay harbor every October heralds the start of another Oyster Festival.

The Oyster Bay 9/11 Memorial Is a Place to Remember Loved Ones

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 17 September 2010 00:00

It was a beautiful day, reminiscent of September 11, 2001 the moment in time that was being memorialized as Oyster Bay held its 6th annual ceremony at the 9/11 Memorial on West End Avenue on the Western Waterfront. It was fitting that members of the Atlantic Steamer Fire Company stood at the left of the monument, and at the right, the presenters, New York Senator Carl Marcellino, the Rev. Peter Casparian of Christ Church; and Rev. Jeffrey Prey of the First Presbyterian Church. Seated in front with the guests were Co-Pastors Diane and Ray Melograne of the North Shore Assembly of God.
