Harvest Fair Photos

I arrived about 3 p.m., after many of the festivities had finished.  This view faces south.

This view faces north!  A few minutes later, we had a shower.

To the left is a "working" Seaford skiff, built about 1904, if I recall the sign correctly.  At the right is a recreational skiff built in 1956 by Paul Ketcham of Amityville, recently restored and purchased by a Seaford resident.  For the time being, both skiffs are displayed next to each other.  A skiff is a shallow, flat-bottomed open boat, a design especially helpful when the tide goes out.

In memory of those we lost on 9-11-2001

The sun set about the same time as the program was scheduled to begin.  Therefore, I took photos before the ceremony.  Maybe the holes in the flag provide safety lest the wind tug at the entire flag and bring down the supporting ladders and ropes.

Congressman Peter King later presented awards for service.

Also before the ceremony, we see Peter King (facing left), Fr. Robert Hayden (holding a program), and Pastor Ronald Klose (to the right).
The high school band played the National Anthem with extraordinary clarity and without improvisations.
