“I opened the paper and there was Raynham Hall,” said former Town of Oyster Bay Councilman Tom Hogan, Esq. Mr. Hogan was a great asset to Oyster Bay when he was in office. He helped create the Oyster Bay Landmarks Preservation Commission and could always be considered a champion for preservation. Of Snouder’s he said, “I just hope they keep it. It’s a jewel.” Talking about stores in small hamlets, he said, “Downtown is about service.” It is the key thing a small merchant can provide.
Pamela Fierro called to identify the mystery picture in the Jan. 6 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. “It’s the historical house on Summit Street. I live up the block so I know.

They are “ringing the bell” for the Salvation Army kettle.” She added a post-script. “P.S. My first job was at the Oyster Bay Foodtown.”
