Residents from Lake Success took a trip to Hicks Nursery this month. We had so much fun walking around the nursery, sitting for coffee, and of course taking silly pictures with the Halloween decor. We are so excited for Halloween, pumpkin spiced social hours, and crisp autumn weather! Thank you to Hicks Nursery for having us once again!
Here in Sayville, we are taking full advantage of the jam-packed calendar of activities.

We had a great time at our Sock Hop last week! The 1950’s themed party featured live music by Squeaky Clean and a classic diner menu. We spent the afternoon twirling our poodle skirts and slurping milk shakes. Everyone had a great time remembering the 1950’s and all that the decade had to offer!

We are having such an amazing time enjoying this summer weather. This month we took a trip to the Great South Bay for a ride on the Moon Chaser.

Here in West Babylon we have been loving this beautiful summer weather! This month we traveled down to Oak Beach where we went fishing off of the pier.

It was such a great day, we plan to go back in August for snapper fishing!
