It is a great credit to the Oyster Bay-East Norwich school community in that they truly support the district through their fundraising efforts. Last weekend we had a great time at the 10th annual Taste of the Gold Coast gala. The event is run by the Oyster Bay High School Parent Teacher Student Association and is a marvelous evening out with friends. The gala supports the arts in the schools.
Paige Dawson called to identify the March 4 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It looks like Bill DiConza standing outside of Wild Honey and I would almost think it was taken during the Holiday fund raiser for the Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce. I’m not dead-certain, but it looks like that. And he is using a cell phone.” She is absolutely correct!
We hope you will read the Friends of the Bay column How’s the Water? this week. In it, Patricia Aitken reports on a rally held at the Old Bethpage Village Restoration where residents and groups protested Governor David Paterson’s proposed cuts to state parks.
Walter Imperatore of Renaissance Properties e-mailed to identify the Feb. 25 mystery picture. “Is this on Route 106 south of 25A?” he asked, including the photograph.
Billy Minicozzi guessed that the mystery picture of two Adirondack chairs was taken at the Sagamore Yacht Club (a good guess, but not on the mark). On a sports note he wished good luck to the American women’s and men’s hockey teams playing in the Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. “I hope they win the gold,” he said.
Paige Dawson called to identify the Feb. 11 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot and said, “I do believe I know the mystery picture. It’s taken at 15 East Main Street, the sidewalk in front of Chase Edwards Gallery, when we did the Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce winter fundraiser. We had the cocktail hour at Chase Edwards and the dinner at Wild Honey.”
There is a lot of good news being generated by the young people at the Oyster Bay High School. The Oyster Bay High School Foreign Language Honor Society put on a spectacular concert to raise money for the Haitian relief effort on Tuesday, Feb. 9 in the Oyster Bay High School Performing Arts Center (the PAC). Big Shot was performing. They are a premier Billy Joel tribute band. They raised over $11,000 for Haiti earthquake relief.
The Oyster Bay High School Varsity Basketball team did wonderfully at the semi-finals against Locust Valley played at SUNY Old Westbury. They won the semi-final on a 35-foot shot with less than one second to go in the game.
They will be playing in the finals at C.W. Post this Saturday evening, Feb. 20, at 8 p.m. Now that is the place to be on Saturday night, wearing purple and gold. Great good luck to the Baymen!
Gregory Adami correctly identified the Feb. 4 mystery photo as, “The florist on West Main Street, Andrew Pascoe at 47 West Main Street.”
Alice O’Hagan said, “This week’s is the florist in the renovated building next to Next to New used clothing.”
