Patchogue Dedicates Street in Honor of PFC Anton A. “Tony” Bugala USMC 22

On Saturday, November 2nd, Supervisor Ed Romaine, Councilman Neil Foley, Councilman Michael Loguercio, Receiver of Taxes Lou Marcoccia, other State and County officials, veteran groups, friends, and family were on hand to dedicate a portion of North Dunton Avenue in East Patchogue in honor of the late PFC Anton A. “Tony” Bugala USMC.

The ceremony, which was held at the corner of North Dunton Avenue and Irving Avenue, featured a moving, personal and historical recounting of PFC Bugala’s short, but heroic life. As a member of Echo Company, 1st Marine Raider Battalion during World War II, he gave his life at age 21 in defense of our nation on September 14, 1942 at the battle of Edson’s Ridge on the Island of Guadalcanal. PFC. Bugala enlisted while living on a farm in East Patchogue directly across from what is now the Verne W. Critz Elementary School. The dedication was made possible through the Town of Brookhaven, South Bay VFW Post 8300, Hagerman Fire Department and South Country Ambulance Company.

Town Demolishes “Super Storm Sandy” House 173

On November 12th, Councilman Neil Foley was on hand for the demolition of a “Super Storm Sandy” house at 2 South Breeze Drive in Patchogue. The house, located on property along the Great South Bay, experienced significant damage during the powerful storm that hit Long Island on October 29, 2012. Approximately 100,000 residences on Long Island were severely damaged, including 2,000 that were rendered uninhabitable. The demolition debris was later carted away and the property will be left in its natural state.

Councilman Foley said, “The south shore of Brookhaven was impacted hard by Super Storm Sandy and we are still recovering seven years after that catastrophic event. I thank the Town of Brookhaven Law Department for their efforts to finally rid the neighborhood of this eyesore.”
