We would like to thank the Town of Southampton for assisting in this event. Chris Bean and Jon Erwin and the entire crew of the Parks and Recreation Department did a really commendable job. Also, kudos to Southampton Town Human Services for the shuttle busses, Town of Southampton Highway Department, Hampton Bays Volunteer Ambulance, Hampton Bays Volunteer Fire Department and the Southampton Town Police Department for the extraordinary job they did.
I would also like to thank the Hampton Bays Beautification Association volunteers who put this wonderful event together. Chairmen Jack O’Keefe and John Zuccarelli and their great team of Greeters, Bucket Brigade, our Sign Team, the Membership Table Team and our roving photographer. Without our volunteers and the financial help of the community, this wonderful event would not be possible. Look for the pictures on our web site soon. www.hbba.net.
We would like to extend a very special thanks to middle school student, Christiaan Padovan for singing the National Anthem. What wonderful talent and such a treat for the community.
