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.
Carla Panetta called to identify the mystery picture in the Oct. 28 issue of the Enterprise Pilot as: “It’s my favorite spot. It’s behind Chrison & Bellina, the lady’s gift shop on Audrey Avenue. Catherine Drabin maintains the little patio with flowers, has restored the fountain and pays for the electricity to keep the water flowing. It is a lovely place, and the store is known for its great eclectic shopping. It is located at 24 Audrey Avenue.
Jessica Craft correctly identified the photo in the Oct. 21 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “ It’s the empty lot on Pine Hollow Road adjacent to the Coach Grill.” Perfect.
One of our favorite songs – of all times – is What’s the Use from Leonard Bernstein’s Candide. It talks about life being “just passing money along.”
Belle Santora called to identify the mystery picture in the Oct. 14 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. “I think it’s Roosevelt Beach looking across to Centre Island. I hope it’s right,” she said.
