Bellport Homecoming 2018 Highlights 663

A beautiful fall afternoon was the perfect background for the South Country School District’s annual homecoming festivities on Oct. 6th.

The day began with the Homecoming Parade through Main Street Four Corners with the marching band, cheerleaders, Homecoming Court and class floats built to the theme Pixar Movies.   Also marching were members of the fire department, police and ambulance corps, as well as district administrators.

The district’s new Mobile Library also made its debut in the parade.  The library is set up in an old, small bus donated by East End Bus Lines and operates on a take-a-book-leave-a-book basis.   All books come from donations and are free for South Country residents.  Residents may donate new or gently used children’s and teen books at either of the South Country community’s libraries during regular business hours. Encyclopedias, reference materials and ripped or damaged books will not be accepted.

During the afternoon, Board of Education trustees, administration, faculty, students and residents packed the bleachers and cheered on as the Clippers took the lead with a 35-8 victory over Riverhead.

Emmaly Seaman led the community in the national anthem as fire crackers lit the afternoon sky to the delight of the crowd. During the halftime show, the class courts were announced and seniors Matt Juarez and Candice Lopez were named homecoming king and queen. Congratulations to the following students voted onto the homecoming courts:

Town Partners with Long Island Housing Partnership to Provide Affordable Housing 168

 On August 27th, Brookhaven Town, working in conjunction with the Long Island Housing Partnership (LIHP), conducted a lottery at Brookhaven Town Hall to select 20 applicants who will be provided with an opportunity to purchase new, affordable condominiums at Country Pointe Meadows in Yaphank. These homes are offered for sale to eligible households that earn 80 percent or less of the area median income and will feature two bedrooms and one bath.

Supervisor Edward P. Romaine said, “I want to thank the Long Island Housing Partnership and Beechwood Yaphank LLC for working with the us to help make the dream of home ownership a reality. Brookhaven Town code ensures all housing developments must have at least 10 percent of its units dedicated to providing workforce or affordable housing, and this makes it easier for hard working families to remain on Long Island.”
