How will these new ventures complement the Bay Street Theater, the Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum, John Jermain Memorial Library and other arts institutions in the village? How has Sag Harbor evolved over the years to become a center for arts and culture?

SAG HARBOR PARTNERSHIP HONORED NADA BARRY WITH COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD
We are delighted to report that Nada Barry, longtime owner of the Wharf Shop and passionate supporter of children in Sag Harbor, received our annual Sag Harbor Partnership Community Service Award on Sunday, October 21st, 6pm, in Baron's Cove's beautiful Map Room. We thank Baron's Cove for their sponsorship of this event. Their hospitality was above and beyond!
This private event honors a woman who has striven to make activities and enrichment for both children and Sag Harbor's Main Street a central focus of her life, participating in a myriad of community meetings and activities like the Library Board and the Sag Harbor Schools' Key Communicators Meetings. In an excellent Sag Harbor Express article by Christine Sampson on Ms. Barry, Nick Gazzolo, Sag Harbor Partnership's President, was quoted as saying, "She speaks to us and is sort of like the conscience of Sag Harbor. She is there to challenge us, to compliment us, remind us of how things used to be done where we might have forgotten or didn’t know. She is the keeper of so much Sag Harbor history and tradition.”
Besides the Wharf Shop, Nada helped start the Hayground School, the Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce, and the Sag Harbor Youth Committee, which led to sagharborkids.org, which is still going strong, as is she!
Thanks also to Sag Harbor Florist who provided beautiful centerpieces for each table.

Ed Hollander's contributions include the "Oaks for Oakland" clean-up for Oakland Cemetery, a similar clean-up of the St. David AME Zion Church Cemetery (both with the help of wonderful local volunteer tree companies), his designs for the proposed waterfront park at the base of the bridge, newly designed grounds for the Sag Harbor Whaling and HIstorical Museum (done in collaboration with Edwina von Gal of the Perfect Earth Project), and work begun for the revitalization of Long Wharf for the Village of Sag Harbor.

Artist April Gornik was the grateful recipient of the first-ever annual Sag Harbor Partnership Community Service Award, presented to her at Baron's Cove on Sunday, October 23rd. The award itself was a spectacular blown-glass version of her whale image used for the Walking Tours, to which she has contributed, and commemorated her years of service to the community. She was a founding member of Save Sag Harbor as well as the Partnership, and her work has affected community, environmental, animal welfare and other causes.
Baron's Cove generously donated a spectacularly delicious meal, and Sag Harbor Florist kindly donated beautiful flowers for the tables. Funds were also raised towards the installation of the AME Zion Church Cemetery Fence. It was a warm and moving celebration, and reaffirmed the beauty of our community and its wide reach.
