OCEAN BAY PARADISE by
We’re midway down the island, and our Community is comprised
of a wonderful mosaic of year-rounders, homeowners, and group shares, many of
whom have moved on to become homeowners themselves. In recent years many young couples with families have bought
homes, changing the dynamics somewhat, but this fact is balanced by a hard-core
group of friends, single and married, who for many years continue to love the
fun times. So much so that we also get together in NYC
to celebrate in the wintertime.
So here’s a little taste of what went on at the “Schooner Re-uner”
Christmas gathering on December 6, 2008, and at a 2009 St. Paddy’s Party hosted
by Tommy Tinhat and his wife.

On Saturday May 23rd
(Memorial Day weekend), the OBP Auxiliary staged
their annual Plant Sale. Popular with local residents, even those from
surrounding communities, this fundraiser is a true service to the Community.
A vast number of plants and shrubs, including hanging planters, flowers,
vegetables and herbs were offered at attractive pricing, competitive with
those on the mainland. Net profits raised from the Sale go towards the
upkeep of the Ocean Bay Park Fire Hall and facilities.
This year the start
time was moved up from 10:00 am to 9:00 am.
This in no way
deterred the anxious customers, who started lining up outside the Fire Hall at
around 8:15 am. By 8:50 am the
anticipation was growing, with around 50 people waiting anxiously with their
wagons. As the doors of the
Fire House rose, the
crowd rushed in to grab their purchases.
Although there were
around 15 carts each with five racks filled with flats,
hanging planters, etc., the whole lot sold out within 1-1/2
The crowd starts to gather at 8:15 am
By 8:30 am people can't control their
Steven J. and Angelo await the start.
When are they going to let us in?
"You got what I wanted"
Hope there's still some left for me!
Kathryn's glad it's almost over
So is Joanne!
