Don't Miss the Holiday Tree Lighting, and More

Holiday Tree Lighting—This Saturday!

We hope you can join us on Saturday, December 3rd, at 4:30 p.m. for our annual BBCA tree lighting.  We will kick off the holiday season with some simple libations, cookies, carols, and cheer. 


We have it on good authority that Santa will be arriving around 5 p.m. with some goody bags for the children. And we hear that he will be arriving in a very special sleigh, appropriate for a visit to the beach—come and see what it’s all about! 



Town of Babylon Historian and Archivist Mary Cascone wants everyone to know that while she helped with the current Long Island Life Saving Stations exhibit at the Babylon Library (mentioned in my last newsletter), it was actually presented by the Village of Babylon Historical and Preservation Society.


Babylon Holiday Model Train Display, Opening Friday

But, speaking of Mary Cascone, she and her office will be hosting the 2016 Annual Holiday Model Train Display at Town of Babylon History Museum, Old Town Hall, 47 West Main Street, Babylon Village. It will be opening this Fridaynight, December 2nd, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.during the Old Fashioned Village Christmas. After that, you can see the trains on Fridays through Sundays from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. until January 8th, 2017.


It’s a wonderful display, especially for children, featuring replicas of many Babylon buildings and points of interest. Debuting this year is a scale model of our own Oak Beach Life Saving Station, made by Mary’s husband Jason – don’t miss it!
