Holiday Sharing Program

Co-chair Carol Daub said, “The number of people needing assistance in our affluent community is real and very disturbing. There are over 100 families and over 50 individuals who are in dire need of help. I just got a request for a family where both parent just lost their jobs: they have no income, no insurance, nothing. The program in this small community in our zip code area, is helped confidentially.” Nonperishable food items and turkeys will be accepted at the Food Drive, at the First Presbyterian Church on East Main Street in Oyster Bay, on Monday, Nov. 25 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Nov. 26 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Small Business Saturday

The Oyster Bay-East Norwich Chamber of Commerce invites residents to take part in a nationwide rally to get people to shop in small downtown businesses, called Small Business Saturday, Nov. 30. The chamber is encouraging the 3/50 Project, a nationwide program on the benefits of shopping truly local, where more that half the funds remain with the local economy. Just think, if residents did that, spent $50 monthly, in three stores they loved but that are gone forever, like The Country Lady, the Book Mark and the Casual Gent, they might still be here in the hamlet.

News

The Raise The Roof Concert, held at Christ Church on Nov. 9, was an intergenerational event to benefit the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay’s seniors.

Board member Suzanne Paolucci explained the center’s wish to get iPods for the seniors as a source of musical therapy. She brought the idea to the center from a talk by social worker Dan Cohen, the founder of Music & Memory. He has produced a film, Alive Inside, that tells the story of music as being restorative. Music is like therapy for the elderly, in particular for those with dementia, as it has been shown to awaken memories of happier times in life, when energy and enthusiasm were boundless.

Driving rain and an early start time did not deter 600 people who arrived at Crest Hollow Country Club recently to celebrate the Women’s Fund of Long Island’s 20th year and to honor four exceptional women.

The breakfast started with a meet and greet and a chance to showcase Women’s Fund contest winner Patti Hogarty, designer of “Women as Bamboo.” Inspired by her neighbor’s bamboo, she entered the contest drawing a design of the bamboo, which Ambalu Jewelers of Roslyn then turned into various pendants of which 40-percent of the profits would go to WFLI. Hogarty wrote a short essay comparing women to bamboo in that they are strong and can weather difficult storms, yet remain graceful and continue to grow sending out new shoots.


Sports

On the weekend of Nov. 8, the Oyster Bay High School Boys and Girls Cross Country teams traveled to the State University of New York at Canton just a few miles from the Canadian border to compete in the New York State Cross Country Championships.

Alex Tosi became the first Bayman since Joe Jazwinski and Justin Nakrin (2008) to become All-State, placing 16th with a time of 16:53. Most runners ran about 20 seconds slower than their Bethpage times because of the muddy conditions on the course. Tosi’s time was basically equivalent to his best Bethpage time, as he powered through the toughest parts of the race. He led the Baymen to a seventh place finish in the Class C race, an improvement from their 11th place finish last year, which ties the highest place at the New York State Championships of a Baymen team since 2009.

In the history of Oyster Bay High School athletics, no one has ever won a Girls’ Tennis New York State Championship. Celeste Matute and Courtney Kowalsky became the first when they won the 2014 New York State Doubles Championship in Latham on Nov. 3. What makes this tremendous achievement even more remarkable is that Matute is a junior and Kowalsky is a sophomore.

The girls, who are usually singles players, teamed up to take on the very best players in Nassau County and New York State. They won all 10 matches in the section XIII and NYSPHSAA tournaments and left Latham as the 2014 New York State doubles champions.
