This Saturday, April 28, two Oyster Bay community organizations will be walking with their constituencies, bringing awareness to their missions, and most importantly celebrating wellness. The Life Enrichment Center will be hosting its 7th Annual Community Wellness Walk and the Oyster Bay Cooperative Preschool (OBCP) will once again be joining us. The OBCP plays an important role in the lives of the members of our adult day care program. Once a month, the 3- and 4-year-old students along with the school’s director, Bev Zembko and her assistants, visit our Day Break program bringing joy and positivity to our members.
All PAL sport programs are highly beneficial to their participants by instilling a positive work ethic, determination, patience, tolerance, and respect for themselves and others. In addition, the program provides a safe environment for physical activity, competition, and personal growth.

Congratulations to Enno DeRoos of Oyster Bay, who scored as the first-place finisher in the Clydesdale 200 pound Weight Division in the 15th Annual Lazer Aptheker, Rosella & Yedid Kings Park 15 Kilometer Run on March 24.
Runner DeRoos crossed the finish line at the new Discovery School in Kings Park in one hour, 10 minutes, 26 seconds; thats 29 seconds in front of division runner-up David Whitwell. A total of 633 runners successfully navigated the 9.3 miles up and down the hills of Kings Park. Mile for mile, this is arguably the toughest course of any Long Island race, but local runners proved equal to the task.

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto and Town Councilwoman Beth Faughnan visited with the participants and volunteers at this year’s United Cerebral Palsy of Nassau County’s (UCPN) 8th Annual Polar Bear “Break the Ice” Swim at Theodore Roosevelt Park and Marina.
Alex Gallego past President of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Chamber of Commerce has often participated in the Polar Bear swims, representing the chamber. This year he brought along his two beautiful daughters.
Following the earlier and equally stunning news that future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning would sign as a free agent with the Denver Broncos, Tebow, a Heisman Trophy winner, found himself on the trade block. The Jets swooped in and acquired the lefty, while surrendering two mid-round draft picks. So, what’s the early verdict?
Oyster Bay High School Freshman Nicholas Orlowski began playing lacrosse for Oyster Bay in 2010 when he was in the 7th grade. He loved the sport so much that he looked for other ways to play in the off-season. Nick joined a summer travel team in a program called “For the Love of the Game.”
The coaches noticed that Mr. Orlowski had exceptional skills and recommended that he try out to compete on a national level. In the summer of his 8th grade year, Nick made the team. He traveled with his team comprised of other 8th grade players from Long Island to Maryland to compete in a tournament facing off against teams from all over the country.
On Saturday, March 24, Centro Cultural Hispano’s Youth Group will be hosting its first-ever sports clinic – for free. “One of the goals of the youth group is to teach adolescent youths about the satisfaction of giving back to their communities,” says Cinthia Scavone, the programs director. “What better way to give back to your community than to teach younger kids.”
