HBBA Decorate 2016
The Hampton Bays Beautification would like to thank everyone helping HBBA decorate our Hamlet for the holiday season. With their help, we make our community a festive place during this special time of the year.
Thanks to Merry Warner, V. Allegretta Electric Company, Tom Maloney of Shinnecock Hardware and Southampton Christmas Lights.
Thanks to the HBBA Holiday Committee Chairman Mike Daly and volunteers Jack and Madeline O’Keefe, Marianne and Tim Murphy, John and Valerie Zuccarelli, Gene Carlson and Tom Carpenter.
This is our sixth year of decorating and we have expanded coverage with lighted wreaths, decorated trees, the pergola and lights all along Good Ground Road. We installed an extensive array of tree lighting at all the Medians, Train Station, Ponquogue Ave, Post Office, Main Street, UA Theater, Welcome Sign, Flagpole area and at King Kullen. We have also planted a few live Christmas trees and added lights and stars.
Finally, I would like to thank all the wonderful people who answered our Holiday Fund Campaign.

On December 7th, the Hampton Bays Beautification Association celebrated its 31st 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 also presented to Peg Campbell, Membership Chairman and Treasurer Marianne Murphy and in November, an award was presented to Director Maud Kramer in honor of her for 20 year service to HBBA.
At the luncheon, a special HBBA Appreciation Award was presented to Hampton Bays Postmaster, Buddy Klein for his efforts in maintaining the Post Office grounds.
Annually, HBBA presents an award to a local business. 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 which have contributed to the beauty of our community. I have enjoyed serving with all of you. On a more personal note, I wish to thank the Board and our membership for the honor given to me in recognition of my 20 years of service to HBBA. Thank you Valerie for your kind words.
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.
