Kerry Gillick-Goldberg of KGG Enterprises, LLC, who along with Harlan Friedman promotes the Oyster Festival, called to say that they are already involved in planning with the committee. “They are the best people to work with. They think of the Oyster Festival all year long on how to make it better than ever. They are the greatest,” she said.
She added, “We’ve been getting phone calls from sponsors to see if they will get the same spot as last year. And there are no complaints!
“We are starting the planning a month earlier than last year and will have a much stronger handle on it than our first year of promoting the festival. We are just so happy that everyone had such a positive experience and are ready to come back this year.
Gaby Treble, a student in the third grade at the Vernon School called to answer the mystery picture in the Jan. 19 Enterprise Pilot. [The Jan. 26 mystery picture is still a mystery.]
Gaby said, “I know where the last picture was taken, it’s a baseball and it’s right by the new soccer field. It’s by the bay, at Roosevelt Park and right next to the baseball field. I hope I’m right and I really think I am because I just had a soccer game there yesterday (Jan. 25) and the Lady Owls won.”
Tony Pilla reported that the mystery picture is again alive and well on the Internet. He said, “The Jan. 19 picture came through okay but I don’t have a good answer for it. Taking a wild guess, I would say it’s a part of Dodds & Eder’s complex.”
Well, he is amazingly just about right. In the photograph, to the right of the Village Greenery is the original Dodds & Eder location, before they expanded into it; created a wonderful barn-looking building on West Main Street; and eventually moved to the former A & P building on South Street, where they now thrive.
Jacki B. Gutman said in an email, “I have been a resident of East Norwich for over 40 years. I know the Jan. 12 mystery picture as I love to walk at Roosevelt Beach and I have been watching the renovations. This is the ball outside the new baseball field. There is also a large football there and a soccer ball. The Pearls by Jerelyn Hanrahan are now covered for the winter but they are nearby. The beach is just beautiful to utilize any time of year, and the community should see how terrifically it is now fixed up. Also the marine firehouse has a piece from the World Trade Center that is on view nearby in their memorial garden.”
We received an email from Tammy Moore telling about a project of her 12-year-old daughter, Emily Moore, who is having a slipper drive to support the Matthew Fetzer Foundation.
She said, “Emily is relying on the support of her friends, family and community members to achieve her goals in support of this wonderful foundation. The more people she can reach the better the results will be.” If you have any questions, you can reach Ms. Moore at 458-9325.
We emailed Tony Pilla the mystery picture from Jan. 12 and he said, “Thanks for the picture. I know it’s a baseball or softball, but I have no idea the significance of it or its location.”
While that is true, we are confident there are people in the community who do know where the photo was taken – during the Oyster Festival this year.
We thought that was a great idea. The school is teaching other classes about how the school tax system works.
Many pages of this newspaper have been devoted to doing just that same thing. The school taxes are probably the only time residents get to look close up and personal at a budget document for an entity as large as the school district.
Chris Mahon called to identify the Jan. 5 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s Coe Hall at the Arboretum. I went there a month ago and the picture looked very familiar to me. There are a lot of nice things there.” Chris and his wife Nicole live in East Norwich. Nick is a clinic technician at the East Norwich Veterinary Clinic.
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.
