West Neck Beach Images: September 21, 2013

It was the last full day of Summer 2013 so I might have made the photos a little more dramatic than they actually were but what the heck, looking back at Summer 2013 with rose-colored glasses in the dead of winter might not be such a bad thing.

Entertainment Committee Picks Date for Swimmers 2013 Christmas Party-- December 1st

Last year, Super Storm Sandy knocked our Annual Swimmer's Christmas Brunch for a loop, canceling a traditional Holiday get-together that dates back to the 1980's! If we actually skipped any other years but 2012, don't let me know about it as I would just as soon live with the memory of an unbroken string of Swimmer's Christmas Brunches. There have been a lot of them and 2013 will add one more to the list!  NOTE NEW 12/1/2013 DATE!

So, SAVE THE DATE: Sunday, December 1, 2013 at 12 Noon at the Black Forest BruHaus in Melville. More details will follow but note the date in you calendar today. The Committee, from left to right: Bob Miller, Tom Haack and Paval Romano. I was, of course, taking the photo!
