Our Fall Show. . .

Nightwatch, Lucille Fletcher

Our Fall 2008 production of “Night Watch” was a huge success!! We had packed houses for three of the four performances. It was fun to be back at the Bellport Community Center.  Thanks to the direction of Phil Gellis and the talented cast, the audiences were taken on a ride of twists and turns to the surprise ending of the show.  Kudos to the Producers, Annette Maillard and John Hannon; our Set Designer, Lester Sprague, and the dedicated production staff that brought this a memorable and rewarding production to life, especially in such a short time frame.     


Annual Meeting. . .

 The Annual meeting will be held in the Brown Building on Saturday January 24th from 2-5pm.

 The nominating committee consisting of board members Annette Maillard and Kathy Loizides, and members Des Burke, Michele DePalo, and Laurie Fosmire selected the following nominees for new board positions.  We are pleased to welcome back to the board Chrisa Burke and Bree Nurnberger and know their contributions will be most welcome. We are also happy that "rookie" John Simpson will be joining us with new ideas and energy.
