Written by Tom Gould, OB-EN media specialist Friday, 16 October 2009 00:00
Ms. Dawn Cerrone has been working for the Oyster Bay East Norwich Schools for over 20 years. Her ever present smile and boundless energy has become synonymous with the spirit of Oyster Bay. When athletic director John Piropato vacated the office and Dawn threw her hat into the ring, it was a clear choice for Ms. Cerrone to take the reins of the Athletic Department.

Oyster Festival 2009 Takes Place on Land and Sea

Local sailors will take part in this year’s First Annual Oyster Festival Regatta Oct. 17 and 18. Last year the race was a Match race with professional racers creating excitement out in the harbor as two by two they raced each other in positioning their boats best to race around a buoy.

This year, said Walter Imperatore of Renaissance Properties Associates, they decided to rethink the event and instead have it closer to shore to keep the excitement more visible – and to have local businesses sponsor the racing boats at $500 each. The event is being worked in conjunction with the WaterFront Center, using their Sonars. The race will launch from the WFC.
