Kayak owners may obtain their free identification sticker at this year’s Oyster Fest USCG Auxiliary’s display booth on West End Avenue. They will also have free kayaking and boating safety materials on hand for distributing to all recreational boaters.
Morgan McCurdy of the Waterfront Center is shown in the accompanying photo pointing to a kayak identification sticker provided by USCG Auxiliary in Oyster Bay. The 3x6 waterproof stickers provide space for the owners of the kayak to write their name and two telephone contact numbers. Each year thousands of empty floating kayaks are found floating inshore and offshore waters. In that kayaks are not required to be registered in the State of New York and have no registration numbers, there is presently no way for authorities to identify and contact the owner of the craft.

On a beautiful and warm summer day, a group of 40 Oyster Bay area residents, volunteers and brain aneurysm survivors participated in the fifth annual one-mile swim in Oyster Bay Cove, raising $2,500 benefiting North Shore University Hospital’s Brain Aneurysm Center, part of the Cushing Neuroscience Institute. The swim started at noon on Saturday, Aug. 13.
The event was organized by brain aneurysm survivor Joan Imhof, along with the Long Island Volunteer Center, an affiliate of HandsOn Network.
The first game was against the Rams of West Hempstead. This was the first time they played in our conference. It was seen as a challenge because they brought a squad of 35 with some very big kids on the line.
