On December 6th, the Hampton Bays Beautification Association celebrated its 32th 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 event.
Congratulations to Jean Waters, HBBA’s Director, received the HBBA 2017 “Angel of the Year” Award for her service as a past officer, director and chairperson of many HBBA events and programs.
