Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend


With the traditional start of summer upon us, whether you’re “on the Beach” or off, with friends or family, we wish you a Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

And, most importantly, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the men and women of the Armed Forces—past and present—and their families whose sacrifices have enabled us to enjoy the blessings of freedom.
 

Community Center Update

 

Councilman Tony Martinez reports that the final approval from Suffolk County Department of Health Services was just granted allowing Town of Babylon to resume work right away on the Community Center. We'll send more information as it becomes available. 

 

Spring Cleanup Dumpsters

 

Residents of Oak Beach should know there is a spring cleanup dumpster at the Community Center, although no hazardous or toxic materials, paint, tires, etc., should be disposed of there. This is for residential trash and is not available for use by contractors.

As has been offered to other communities, dumpsters for Gilgo and Captree will be available as well.

 

The Cocktail Party Is Coming Up—Please RSVP

 

Our annual "Spring Into Summer" cocktail party is almost here! As a reminder, the party will be held on Saturday, June 3, from 5–7 p.m. at the Gilgo Beach Inn

A $10 ticket per person—cash or check—at the door will get you two free drinks and a choice of a wide variety of delicious Mulberry Street sandwiches, and an evening of friends, fun, and live music. To help us order the right amount of food, please RSVP to Jed by this Wednesday, May 31, and let us know how many will be attending.

To give our volunteers “at the door” a break, we would prefer not to accept dues payments at the party. If you haven't yet paid your dues, you can do so in two ways: Visit our Dues page to pay via PayPal, or to get information on where to send a check. If you're not certain whether or not you're current, please send a note to Jed

Right now, the long-range forecast is good, but if we need to, the rain date will be Sunday, June 4, from 46 p.m.—stay tuned.

Save the Date for the BBCA Cocktail Party

"Spring Into Summer" Cocktail Party

 

Summer is almost here, so let's raise a glass to celebrate! Our annual "Spring Into Summer" cocktail party will take place on Saturday, June 3rd, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Gilgo Beach Inn. A $10 ticket purchased at the door gets you two free drinks, a wide selection of yummy sandwiches from Mulberry Street in Babylon, and an evening of friends, fun, and live music.
 

"Spring Into Summer" Cocktail Party
Where: Gilgo Beach Inn
When: Saturday, June 3, 5–7 p.m.   
 
(Rain date and time: Sunday June 4, 4–6 p.m.)
RSVP to Jed Meade
 

Guests are invited, so please feel free to bring friends! However, as this is an adult party, we ask that you please leave your children at home.

If you plan to attend, we ask that you PLEASE RSVP to Jed Meade, for two very important reasons:

First, we want to make sure we have plenty of food available for the crowd that shows up. And second, if we need to have it on Sunday, you can only get past the entrance booth (between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. without paying a $40 fee if you don’t have a Resident Permit) if your name is on the list. Please RSVP before Thursday, June 1, and let us know how many are in your party.
 

Have You Paid Your 2017 Dues?

 

Although we’re pleased with dues response, we still have a ways to go to get back on sound footing. If you haven't paid your dues, please take a moment to send a check or pay via PayPal; visit our dues page for more information.

Community Center Update, STB Fundraiser

Progress on the Community Center/Coast Guard Station Restoration: Up and Over!

 

After three days, the building was supported, lifted and moved west to the adjacent lot where it will await the installation of a new pile foundation—and then moved back. Note the remains of the old black locust poles in the previous location—installed more than 85 years before!




Drink to Save The Beaches at Lessing's Main Street Restaurants for the Month of April!

 

Mary Beth Schappert of Save the Beaches reports the following fundraising event: For the month of April, the Lessing Family, through their Main Street restaurants, will be raising funds and awareness about STB by donating a portion of the sales of Heineken and Heineken Light for the entire month (the green bottle in honor of Earth Day, April 22!). Their Main Street Group includes Post Office Cafe (Babylon), Southside (Bay Shore), Maxwells (Islip), Library Cafe (Farmingdale), and Finnegan's (Huntington). Along with the donation, the wait staff will wear uniform shirts with the STB logo on the back to promote the organization.

Additionally, at the end of April they will also be raffling a paddleboard at the Post Office Cafe; all proceeds going to Save the Beaches, and the paddleboard to the winner. Stay tuned for details.

We want to thank the Lessing Family and Jen Cantin, Oak Beach resident and Lessing employee, for sponsoring this initiative.
