Phil’s Restaurant, Shoreham Wading River High School, Wading River Fire Department and Shoreham Fire Company No. 3 all reflect the sentiments of the community: “Congratulations to the Class of 2016.” Many SWR high school students have been connected to local departments and businesses. It’s a known fact that graduating high school is accompanied by the feeling of having a tremendous weight lifted from your shoulders. May you all enjoy that feeling for as long as you can and may you all find success on whichever path you choose.

A stylishly smooth gentleman caught my eye recently, rolling by my line of vision at Shoreham Plaza. I caught up with Robbie Musiello, a SWR high school graduate (Class of 2013), who was skateboarding. I had commented that I regretted not learning to skateboard because I thought it was “a really cool way to roll.” Robbie agreed, saying it was his mode of transportation of choice. He’s good at it, too! He was traveling fast and even threw in a trick or two. It was nice meeting you, Robbie. Let us know all the places your skateboarding adventures take you. Safe journeys to you!

The staff at Wading River Deli wishes good luck to all the students playing spring sports! (more…)

When she was just 15, Kate wrote about what life was like at the time. Stephanie and Sid Bail will discuss the insights her diary provides about the hamlet as it was nearly two centuries ago. A slideshow based on the diary will also be presented. For more information, call 631-929-4082.
