SPOTLIGHT ON FREEPORT'S WATERFRONT
You may have noticed the Freeport is proudly billing itself as the
"Boating and Fishing Capital of the East" , and it is no idle boast,
thanks to the energetic work of many people throughout thecommun*
ity. Businessmen of the waterfront, for example, are running edu-cational
advertisements in New York newspapers under this slogan,
pointing out our waterfront facilities and restaurants and advising that
"Everything That's Nautically New Can Be Found in Freeport"..
The Village Waterfront Committee has started a Canal Clean-Up
Campaign. Did you know that there are Village Ordinances regarding
dumping of trash from boats or from shore that, if violated, can cost
you a hefty fine? They provide that there shall beno discharge of toi-let
and no deposit of "sewage, offal, ashes, garbage,waste or other
offensive or rejected materials either from shore or fromany undocu-mented
vessel into any waters within or bounding the Village to 1500
feet from shore" andthatthe "owner, lessee or occupant ofwaterfront
property shall keep same cleaned and in good repair". Too many peo-ple
do not seem to realize that trash in the water is not only unsightly
but actually dangerous to health and can damage boats. Holdthattrash
and help keep our waterways clean!
Freeport will again have international recognition as a waterfront
community and boating center when the Fourth Around-Long -Island
Marathon is held here on July 11th. Boats in this gruelling contest
start and end in Freeport. Watch for this event!
FREEPORT TO CELEBRATE BIRTHDAY
Freeport became an incorporated village 70 years ago in October.
The Village is planning a gala birthday celebration in which everyone
will be invited to participate. Send us your ideas and watch for fur-ther
