Friday, 06 January 2012 00:00The new year is upon us and our calendar is already getting filled in. Our dance program so to speak.
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.
The Main Street Association meeting on Jan. 26 looks like another winner. We look forward to the event because in our estimation the work they have been doing is “just right”. They are tweaking the community in gentle ways that make it all better. No great big projects to change the community.
We really loved the quote from Isaac Kremer, MSA executive director when he said, “When I go around the country on conferences the best thing I can tell them is I’m restoring Theodore Roosevelt’s hometown and people understand and most of the time they go out of their way to support it. They appreciate the Roosevelts and that Oyster Bay is the place that should be kept at its best because it is a strong memorial to him.”
That ties us right in with Sagamore Hill and their using the hamlet as an extension of the interpretation of the life of the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt.
That sort of sums up our hopes for the hamlet. Everyone is working to make the best of the best that is already here. In our opinion it is all working for the good. It is all, as TR would say, “Bully!”
Or maybe better still – “Dee-lightful!”
