Happy Memorial Day!

May 26, 2023

Dear Quogue Residents,

Memorial Day Weekend has arrived and the summer season is kicking off with a bang.  Just a few reminders of the many activities taking place this weekend.

Saturday morning, May 27th at 10:00 am, I will be giving the State of the Village address in front of the Fire Department.  I will touch on a number of topics, including an overview of the coming year’s budget and tax comparisons, the latest news on the FIMP beach nourishment project, traffic safety issues, and an update on a few environmental initiatives and smaller road projects.  There will be a Quogue trivia quiz and time for Q&A.

The Quogue Association’s annual meeting will be held at 8:30 am on Saturday morning in the Village Courtroom just prior to the State of the Village address.   The Quogue Association does an enormous amount for our beautiful village and organizes many fun events, including the Concert on the Village Green on June 23rd, the annual Duck Race on July 28th, and the Beach Party on August 18th.  More details will be forthcoming. I strongly encourage all Quogue residents to become members of the QA.  Information on how to join is available at https://quogueassociation.org/

This Saturday marks the official opening of the Village Beach’s summer season.  The hours are 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. The beach will only be open on weekends until June 24th, when it will be open seven days a week.  As previously announced, the beach concession will be run this summer by Beth’s Café, also opening for business this Saturday.

Finally, our annual Memorial Day Ceremony is scheduled at 10:00 am on Monday, May 29th, in front of the Firehouse.  Our Volunteer Fire Department has organized this event for many years, and I encourage you to attend as we remember and honor all service members and their families who have sacrificed so much for our security and freedom.

The weekend is going to packed with activities and the weather is looking fabulous.  Wishing everyone a great time and please remember to drive safely and slowly!
