Billy Minicozzi said, “It’s a chandelier over a table probably in Oyster Bay.” On a sports note he was looking forward to what is going on leading up to the Super Bowl. He said the Giants played Atlanta and beat them 24 to 2 on Sunday at the MetLife Stadium. Next they will play the Green Bay Packers in Green Bay’s historic Lambeau Field on Sunday, Jan. 15 at 4:30 p.m.
When you are out camping you need to find easy ways to clean pots and pans without having a lot of water available. So, I wiped out the remains of the oil and fish shreds with a paper towel or two that I tossed away. When the pan was visibly clean I just had to rinse out the pan.
With short deadlines because of the New Year’s Day holiday on Monday and the paper being completed on Friday, Dec. 29 – there was no correct answer to the mystery picture as of noon.
Tony Pilla alerted us to a problem on the Internet version of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “I am sad to say this week’s picture was blank again although there was a picture of last week’s - of two gentlemen talking. [That was of Town of Oyster Bay Commissioner of Planning and Development Fred Ipolitto talking to a town employee at the end of a town board meeting.]
We look forward to the Raynham Hall gala on Feb. 10. They did a great job fundraising last year and this year they need funding for repairs so we hope everyone will be generous again. It is always a lovely event with great raffle prizes.
Billy Minicozzi called to identify the Dec. 22 mystery picture. He said, “It’s two men at an Oyster Bay Town Board meeting.” On a sports note, he is looking ahead to the Super Bowl and seeing the Denver Broncos as a good choice.

At that time, if residents wanted a night hearing - so that those working during the day wouldn’t have to take a day off from work, but could attend a night meeting – they had to submit a petition with 100 signatures of local residents - to get a night meeting.
The photograph was taken after the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay Benefit at Seawanhaka Yacht Club on Dec. 4 as they held their Holiday Art Exhibit and Sale.

Belle Santora said of the mystery picture in the Dec. 15 issue of the Enterprise Pilot, “I know where it was taken. It’s the gazebo in Oyster Bay. It’s like a Christmas card, a pretty photo.

In the background we heard Louis yell out, “Merry Christmas.”
Warren Obes called to identify the mystery picture in the Dec. 8 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s a lovely picture of what would be the Oyster Bay Inn, originally crafted by Charles Dekay Townsend in 1901 as the Townend Inn and later owned by Andrew and Arthur Snouder and renamed the Oyster Bay Inn in 1912. The Snouder’s brothers sold it on Sept. 5, 1923 to become the Matinecock Lodge – home of Lodge 8006 of free and accepted masons.”
We just loved seeing the beginnings of the Ida May and can’t wait to see it finished this spring. We guess you could call it a Christmas present to the community.
