Things have been happening at the Oyster Bay Historical Society. They recently held their fantastic collaboration with the Roslyn Landmark Society – the Twinight art auction event. We hope you enjoyed seeing the pictures of the event taken by Darcy Tabako that were in the July 29 issue of the Enterprise Pilot.
Greg Van Dyke was the first caller for the mystery picture in the July 22 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said correctly, “It’s a picture of the Sagamore Yacht Club.” He added on a personal note, “All is well.”
Local artist Jerelyn Hanrahan of Atelier Studio of Fine Art has come up with a whimsical idea for Oyster Bay and the Main Street Association is helping her facilitate it with a small grant.
“We are very excited by the opportunity to support our emerging art sector in Oyster Bay. This is hopefully the first of many projects that realize the potential of the arts to support revitalization,” said MSA Director Isaac Kremer.
Every year someone, somewhere will have a class reunion. This year it’s time for Oyster Bay High School’s Class of 1975 to hold its 35th! “Everyone had such a great time at the 30th, they didn’t want to wait for the 40th,” said John Bruckner, Jr. one of the organizers. He worked with the committee on their 10th, 20th and 30th reunions.
Belle Santora called to identify the mystery picture in the July 15 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the walkway that goes down towards the east end of Beekman Beach – the walkway to nowhere.”
Madison Petrizzo called to identify the mystery picture in the July 8 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the Bonanza stand!” Her mother Rose said Madison knew because, “We go there all the time.”
The Enterprise Pilot has been devoid of editorials for several weeks due to the absence of the editor due to health issues, for which we apologize. We enjoy communicating with the public on local issues. We don’t expect people to agree with us – in fact that is not the issue. We try to express an opinion that we believe is – more or less – a community view, sometimes one that is difficult to express in such a tight knit area.
Brendan Rainey of East Norwich called to identify the June 17 mystery picture. “It’s the fish hatchery,” he said. Brendan has seen the trout in the ponds there.
Billy Minicozzi guessed it was a boardwalk, or possibly at a church in Oyster Bay. He added “Good Luck to Tiger Woods in U.S. Open in California.”
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who helped make the 48 hour event during the weekend of June 11-13 a huge success. In a short three weeks and with less than $1,000 we were able to transform the lower Audrey Ave. extension into a vision that we could all agree upon. I would like to first thank our board members and executive director for agreeing to take on such a huge undertaking. In addition, I’d like to thank Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce, RR Museum, Town of Oyster Bay, Do Tank: Brooklyn and other community partners who took time out of their busy schedules to create a pedestrian mall, RR plaza, a pop up store and cafes during the 48 hour event. Without all of their hard work and effort, this visioning process would not have been possible. The steady flow of residents and visitors alike to this often quiet area of town was very encouraging and the feedback was extremely positive. We were able to prove that this part of town is the connection to our beloved waterfront and could be an economically, aesthetically pleasing viable part of the downtown.
As a long time subscriber and admirer of your professionalism, I would like to take issue with you on one point in the June 17 editorial. Reporting on the highly successful gala which our music director put together and led on June 13, you noted “90 musicians and the church choir”. There were 93 musicians who performed under Michael Haigler’s inspired direction.
