Cocktails by the Bay 2018
Rain uplifted, rather than dampened, the spirits of the 200 guests gathered inside Roger and Sava Thomas’ exquisite Bellport Bay-front home on Saturday, August 11th for the 7th annual Cocktails by the Bay to support the highly successful projects launched by The Bellport Village Program Fund.
The BVPF Board joined with guests this year to celebrate the 2018 signature project, the planned restoration this fall of the historic 1927 era bowling alley located in the basement of the Bellport Community Center.
As a result of generous contributions by residents of Bellport, The Bellport Village Program Fund, working in partnership with the Village, is restoring the vintage bowling alley, strikingly similar to the 1926 bowling alley in the basement of The Frick Museum, to its beautiful, original working condition. The Village will assist by executing various cosmetic changes and an overall facelift to the basement playroom, with Phillip Thomas, a noted interior designer and member of the BVPF Board of Directors, providing the “wow factor.”
Family Night at Mothers' Beach 2018
Started in 2014, Family Night at Mother’s Beach has grown each year and has been a resounding success providing a Bayside social setting for new resident families to meet fellow residents. This year even more grandparents, parents, siblings, guests, and children galore all had a great time meeting each other and enjoying the beauty of Mother’s Beach. Children played on the new playground equipment and, thanks to FOBB, participated in seeding and chucking oysters into the Bay. Meagan from Get Up-Stand Up brought a huge board and introduced the art of paddle boarding to all, old and young alike!
And of course, it wouldn’t be Family Night at Mother’s without the Flo’s Food Truck! Love those famous lobster rolls! Everyone had a fun, relaxing afternoon!
