Cocktails by the Bay Cancelled
At a time when Bellport Village needs the BVPF more than ever, we have unfortunately concluded that we must cancel the BVPF’s main fundraising event, "Cocktails By The Bay," scheduled for August 8, 2020 due to the national health crisis. .
A picture perfect summer day greeted contestants on Saturday, August 31st , at the 11th Annual Ho Hum Beach Sandcastle Contest, sponsored by the Bellport Village Program Fund.
Newly Designed Bandshell Park Playground
The new signature project for 2020 was announced at our Cocktails by the Bay party. It is a partnership with the Village to re-design the Marina playground and install much needed new playground equipment for the summer of 2020. A Long Island Regional grant was awarded to the Village in December, 2019 for $112,500. This will be used for the new playground. The BVPF will work with the Village and is prepared to contribute if needed.
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.
