Dear readers, this is the Oyster Festival issue. We are all getting ready for the weekend of Oct. 16 and 17. Volunteers are getting ready to spend two days working to create funds for the non-profits in town.
Colleen Bagan of the Village Gourmet Deli identified the mystery picture in the Oct. 7 issue of the Enterprise Pilot’s column, on how well do you know the area. She said, “It’s the Atlantic Steamer Fire Department on 9/11 at the Western Waterfront Memorial. The firefighters are: Chick Maiorana, Vinnie Aquilino, Mike Fitzgerald, Bob Walles and Frank Ozol.
Wow, this was a hard one but two loyal readers aced the mystery picture from Sept. 30. Tony Pilla emailed us his answer saying, “I think it is one of the oyster boats that is usually docked by the Bayville Bridge.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced recently that he is proposing a new law to keep people from smoking on all New York City beaches. We are all for it. Not only is it annoying to be sitting on a beach while smoke from a nearby blanket wafts by your nose – but the butts are littering our beaches.
Rich Reynolds said in an email responding to the Sept. 23 mystery picture, “It’s been a while since I’ve been there, but I’m going to guess that this is the interior of the Sagamore Yacht Club. You can see their “Million Dollar View” through the window.”
Driving to work on Monday morning, Sept. 27, we heard a report on the radio that President Barack Obama is interested in the concept of changing the calendar year for schools in the nation.
He commented that other nations in the forefront of education have only one month of vacation time while we have two months.
Loyal mystery picture fan Billy Minicozzi knows Oyster Bay. He called to say the photo in the Sept. 16 issue of the Enterprise Pilot was one of the Town of Oyster Bay’s showmobiles. “It’s parked on town property near Firemen’s Field,” he said. On a sports note, Billy is looking forward to the football season! And a win by the Jets!
The Long Island Fringe Festival is a “big deal” for the arts in that it offers a weekend-long event celebrating the arts on Long Island.
Shelby Coates, called to say he is now living in Oyster Bay and getting to know the area a little bit better. He has been a familiar face in Oyster Bay over the years. As for “How well do you know the area,” he said, “It’s Sagamore Yacht Club with a view of the water, probably looking toward Mill Neck, not Centre Island.” He aced it!
We watched the 9/11 Memorial events televised from Ground Zero on Saturday, Sept. 11. It has become a ritual for us – just as we sat in the same dining room the morning of September 11, 2001.
