HBBA 2016 Holiday Award Luncheon

On December 7th, the Hampton Bays Beautification Association celebrated its 31th Anniversary with a Holiday Luncheon and Awards Ceremony at Oakland’s Restaurant in Hampton Bays. Our thanks to Grace Daly and Madeline O’Keefe for planning this memorable event.

Madeline O’ Keefe, HBBA’s Secretary, received the HBBA “Angel of the Year” Award for her service as an officer, director and chairperson of many HBBA events and programs. Madeline is a consummate volunteer. Appreciation Awards were presented to Peg Campbell, Membership Chairman and Treasurer Marianne Murphy. In November a 20 Year award was presented to Maud Kramer for 20 years of service to HBBA.

At the luncheon, a special HBBA Appreciation Award was presented to Hampton Bays Postmaster, Buddy Klein for taking such good care of the Post Office property.

Annually HBBA presents an award to a local Business that has improved its property. We were delighted to award a Certificate of Beautification to Mr. & Mrs. Tony Nurel of Nurel’s Farmer’s Market. Congratulations to all.

Last, but certainly not least, a special note of gratitude to the HBBA Officers; Madeline O’Keefe, Valerie Zuccarelli and Marianne Murphy and Directors; Charlie Shields, Mike Daly, Peg Campbell, Monica Freeman, Fran Bauerfeind, Jean Waters and Maud Kramer. Thank you to all the other dedicated HBBA volunteers who have assisted throughout the year. It is with your commitment, time, dedication and talents that has contributed to the beauty of our community. It has been a joy serving with all of you. A 20 year plaque and tribute was presented to President Susan von Freddi by the HBBA members.

Best wishes to all for a wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year. Our next meeting will be on April 3. See you in the Spring.

Susan von Freddi, President
Hampton Bays Beautification Association

IMG_5549
On Sunday evening August 14th, the Hampton Bays Beautification Association held its 20th Annual Free “Concert Under the Stars” featuring “The Fabulous Grease Band” at Ponquogue Beach in Hampton Bays. The evening was perfect, warm and breezy with a beautiful sunset as many residents and visitors sat overlooking the bay and the ocean listening while others danced to the wonderful sounds of the band.
We would like to thank the Town of Southampton for assisting in this event. Jon Erwin, Kristen Doulos and the entire crew of the Parks and Recreation Department did a really commendable job. Also, kudos to Southampton Town Human Services for the shuttle busses, Town of Southampton Highway Department, Hampton Bays Volunteer Ambulance, Hampton Bays Volunteer Fire Department and the Southampton Town Police Department for the extraordinary job they did.
I would also like to thank the Hampton Bays Beautification Association volunteers who put this wonderful event together. Chairmen Jack O’Keefe and John Zuccarelli and their great team of Greeters, Bucket Brigade, our roving photographer Molly Doyle. Without our volunteers and the financial help of the community, this wonderful event would not be possible. Look for the pictures on our web site soon. www.hbba.net.
We would like to extend a very special thanks to Hampton Bays High School student, Christiaan Padovan for singing the National Anthem and entertaining us at intermission.. What wonderful talent and such a treat for the community.
