More Wagons for Ho Hum
Because the wagons at Ho Hum Beach have been extremely popular, the BVPF has decided to purchase additional wagons for the 2021 season.
The trek is long with lots of gear
Perhaps 2 trips would be our fear
But now with wagons hauling stuff
Thanks BVPF - 1’s quite enough
Newly Designed Bandshell Park Playground
The new playground at the marina is open thanks to a large NYS Grant and the BVPF providing 50% of the unfunded costs from the Ggrant. Thanks to all of you for your support that allows us to execute projects like this both small and big!
Bellport Bay 5K
The Bellport Bay 5K run scheduled for July 2021 has been postponed to July 10, 2022. All runners who have already registered will be contacted directly and will have the option of a refund or automatically registering for next year. All sponsors will be contacted directly and offered the same option.
We want the rebirth of this great Bellport classic race to be unencumbered by any health and safety concerns. We are looking forward to this new version of this classic race next July 10, 2022.
Follow and join Jaime Foster at the "Bellport Running Club" on Insta for runs this summer- kickoff July 11 Sunday in the Village starting the unofficial 1 year countdown to the BB5K.
Spraying Ash Trees to Save Them
BVPF has agreed to help fund the treatment of 20 ash trees to protect/cure the trees throughout the Village from the effects of the emerald ash borer beetle. This project will be in partnership with the Bellport Garden Club.
Replacement Umbrellas for Ho Hum
In 2017 BVPF completed the installation of four new large umbrellas at the ferry waiting area at Ho Hum Beach, providing much needed shade for passengers, crew and workers at Ho Hum. Because of wear and tear on these umbrellas, the BVPF will purchase new umbrellas to replace the broken ones for the 2021 season.
Wait for the Ferry all out in the sun
But yo look at that - umbrellas arrive
Thanks to those guys again- my wait I survive!
Thank You BVPF!
Other Projects Being Considered
We are looking at various styles of beach mats/boardwalks to help ease the transition from the existing boardwalk onto the beach at Ho Hum.
Do you know the emerald buzz? Not a club or party.
Look to the trees to find the source, and you will be a smarty.
