Exciting things are in store for residents of the Village of Bayville. On Saturday, Nov. 14, at West Harbor Memorial Beach they will be holding the Second Annual Bayville Turkey Trot fundraiser to benefit the Matthew Fetzer’s Holiday Toy Drive. The toys are distributed throughout local hospitals during the holidays.
The event begins with the Bayville Chicken Run, a one K fun run for tots, on Nov. 14 at 9 a.m. and is followed by the Bayville Turkey Trot at 9:45 p.m. sharp.
Refreshments will be provided by the North Oyster Bay Baymen’s Association. Applications for the race are available online at bayvilleny.gov.

Please feel free to bring an extra donation of a brand new unwrapped toy for the holiday toy drive. Every toy collected will bring a smile to the faces of children struggling with illness. It is in memory of the brave struggle Matthew faced with great courage during his illness.
There will be an awards ceremony and refreshments, after the race. The race is managed by Start to Finish Corporation.
