The time has finally come for the children of our community to be heard and truly placed as a priority in our community. Many say they are our priority, but their actions speak differently. The silent majority will no longer be silent and ignored, and we would like to take this opportunity to provide you with all the facts from those of us who have been directly involved with improving the activities and enhancing the environment for our kids for the past two years.
Mike Weipert of Oyster Bay recognized the Oct. 23 mystery picture as being taken at the car show on Tuesday nights.
Marshall Barth of Syosset identified the Oct. 29 mystery picture as, “The west side of Beekman beach; opposite the large dock that is in front of the Oyster Bay Sailing School.”
(The following letter was sent to Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto in relation to the Artificial Turf Field Proposal and is being printed here with the writer’s permission.)
I am in opposition to the proposed artificial turf athletic field in Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park.
The park deed states that T.R. Memorial Park should be a place of natural beauty for rest and passive recreation. T.R. Memorial Park is historic in nature and holds a certain character and ambiance that are in character with the Historic Hamlet of Oyster Bay. T.R. Memorial Park is a waterfront park. In the Hamlet Plan under waterfront goals it states: “Maintain community character, protect water quality, habitat and marine life, maintain aesthetic economic and recreational value of the bay: encourage environmentally sensitive development which is compatible with waterfront features and maritime history.”
Halloween is such a great holiday. Living in East Norwich we get a lot of children coming for “trick or treat.” It is our favorite holiday.
It is so sweet to see all the children dressed in their costumes. They are such lovely children!
Gregory Adami said of the mystery picture in the Oct. 29 issue of the Enterprise Pilot, “Its down at Beekman Beach, past the WaterFront Center. The water is down at low tide over to the right at Shore Road. I’m down there all the time. It’s been my beach all the time I’ve been in Oyster Bay,” said the lifelong resident of the area. “I grew up here.”
After we had gone to press on Monday, Oct. 19, we listened to our voice mail to hear that Joan Adami of Oyster Bay correctly identified the photograph in the Oct. 8 issue as, “The picture the little house on Church Street.” It was taken inside the Oyster Bay Community Center at the end of Church Street for an Oyster Bay Historical Society panel discussion of WWII. The Boy Scouts in the photo had just helped OBHS staff member Millicent Pittis in setting up chairs for the audience.
If you want a big, warm, beautiful funeral, take Tom Reardon’s life as an example of how to live your life and get involved with the community. Give of yourself to others. Put service before self and leave the world in a better place when you are called from above to leave.
Your passing will leave a definite footprint on the community – but if you do it the way Tom did, I’m sure you will enjoy your life as much as Tom appeared to enjoy his!
The mystery picture of Oct. 15 remains a mystery this week. The location is a very public one and we are assured that there are many of you who know the venue, so let’s wait until next week for the correct answer.
As one who often finds themselves taking a photograph of Old Glory, it was delightful to see her totally unfurled and showing all her stars and stripes.
It was a lovely scene, especially flying over a building dedicated to saving lives.
Carole Brown called to identify the mystery picture in the Oct. 8 issue of the Oyster Bay Enterprise Pilot. Ms. Brown, a social worker with the Oyster Bay-East Norwich School District, said, “I look at the mystery picture all the time - but this one I knew! I know an Oyster Bay High School graduation when I see it! I’m a 23-year veteran of the district. I never guessed one before. I finally feel like I know the town!”
