It's August, and the parties are in
full swing. The OBP Auxiliary hosted their annual Fundraiser
theme party, this year honoring the 40th anniversary of
"Woodstock". The party took place in the OBP
Firehouse, but no-one dared burn their bra! They just burnt up the
dance-floor with the DJ playing our favorites from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

On Sunday August 9th the Fire Island Hotel was the scene for the start of
the 3rd annual FI5K "Run for Rose". Organized by the DiGangi brothers to honor their mother, and to raise funds
for the American Brain Tumor Assn., it is always
a great event. Over 300 participants ran or walked through
the OBP and Seaview walks, cheered on by local
residents. There were world-class runners and first-time competitors, and
our own Luke LaPenna (from Flynns)
placed 5th. Afterwards a Festival was held at the Hotel, featuring great
music, raffles, food and drink.
