The WaterFront Center will host its ninth annual free Bay Day event on Sunday, June 7, at Beekman Beach in Oyster Bay between 11 a. m. and 4 p.m. “The WaterFront Center is pleased to offer Bay Day as a fun way to further connect people to the environment and to the wonderful waterfront resources that exist in their community” said Gaye Verdi, executive director of the WaterFront Center.
A day at the beach, live music, tall ships, sails on the Christeen and smaller boats, kayak trials, the Blessing of the Fleet and Anything That Floats Race, henna tattoos, photo booth, crabcakes—all this and more spell Bay Day! “And, it is all free,” adds Ms. Verdi.
During the summer months, a constant string of teenagers come aboard the Brilliant in groups of nine for either five- or 10-day voyages, and work together under the guidance of the professional crew to safely sail hundreds of miles and learn traditional seamanship skills.
Gunnar Esiason, a senior at Friends Academy, received one of New York State high school football’s highest honors: the 2008 12th Man Award. The New York State High School Football Coaches Association awards the honor annually to “a football player who overcame a serious physical injury or disability to contribute to the success of his team during the season.”
The Association chose Mr. Esiason from all of the state’s regional 12th-Man honorees as one of two 2008 overall co-winners in the state. He accepted the award at a dinner in Verona, in February.

The Baymen faced off against a tough East Rockaway team in a best of three county championship play off. Jake Robinson took the mound in game one and pitched a shut out. The Baymen offense lent their support putting up three runs on the board, including a home run by Billy Clark.
