It was a lovely weekend in Oyster Bay. We attended the Deck the Holidays event at Coe Hall Mansion in Planting Fields Historic State Park. Everyone agreed the decorations were beautiful. It was fun seeing so many Oyster Bay people there including Jane Greenleaf, Judith and Gil Chapman, Lisa and Gil Ott, Ursula and Bill Niarakis, Roland Cotter-Kroboth and Michael Picollo and of course Planting Fields Foundation Director Henry Joyce. Just to name a few!
Everyone was saying how they were very happy with the way Mr. Joyce has opened up Coe Hall for everyone to enjoy. We had a lovely time snapping photos to share with you soon.
The Mystery Picture from the Nov. 26 issue is still a mystery. As for a hint, we will have a small story in next week to talk about the photo location’s owner.
At this year’s Community Social Action Committee of the Interreligious & Human Needs Council setting up of the Thanksgiving dinner boxes for their Holiday Sharing Program, we learned of the great need in the community.
Belle Santora called to identify the mystery picture in the Nov. 18 issue of the Enterprise Pilot.
She said, “The mystery picture is the race at the Oyster Festival.” She is correct. The Oyster Festival Supervisor’s 5K run goes up South Street and that is where the picture was taken!
Rosemary Colvin spoke at the Oyster Bay Civic Association meeting on Nov. 18, asking them to join with the East Norwich Civic Association in asking Saratoga Associates to come to speak to a joint meeting of the groups.
Theresa Varricchio, an Oyster Bay teacher’s aide for 27 years at the Oyster Bay High School, correctly identified the picture in the Nov. 11 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the OBHS guidance office.”
Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto said himself, at the Nov. 9 board meeting, that we live in interesting times.
At the members’ reception for the new exhibit at the Oyster Bay Historical Society, Boat Life on the Sound, on Nov. 6, Vivien Sullivan Koch remarked on the Nov. 4 editorial saying that there was “no Mrs. Royce” living in that house opposite the new TR Triangle Park in the time frame this reporter said there was (about 25 years ago).
Eileen Relyea called to identify the mystery picture in the Nov. 4 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. “It’s my view just before the Oyster Eating Contest starts. Then I get out in front and kneel down before the contestants and count the plates and cups to see who eats the most.”
It was a “very Oyster Bay day” on Saturday, Oct. 30, as the Proctor statue of Theodore Roosevelt was re-dedicated at its new location, and the TR Triangle Park was dedicated for the first time. It still has some details to be added – the bronze plaques are still to be put in place, the pedestals at the trees will be different.
