Village Plans Changes in the Residential
Refuse Collection Schedule
Last year the Village requested
comments from residents concern-ing
the sanitation collection sched-ule.
The Department of Public
Works reviewed those comments

requests in the new schedule

recyclable collection. There is a limit

on Tuesdays and Fridays, as well as
one recyclable collection each week.
The recycling collections will alter-nate
with paper collected in the
existing containers one week, and
the following week, cans, glass and
plastics will be collected in a new
recyclable container that the village
will provide. When a legal holiday
occurs on the scheduled collection
day, the pickup-will be .moved"to

the next business day following the
holiday. This change will provide
everyone with two collections per
week. Yard waste for all residential
customers will be collected on
-Non-metal bulk items, such as

Historic Vessel To Visit Freeport
The Pioneer, a 100-foot sailing schooner, will
be docked at Freeport's recently completed
Esplanade on Woodcleft Ave. from Wednesday,
September 19th through Monday, September
24th. The historic vessel, built in 1885 in
Pennsylvania, will be available for tours and
educational programs while it is docked on the
revitalized Nautical Mile. The schooner original-ly
served as a cargo vessel carrying lumber and
stone from the islands of Maine, bricks along
the Hudson River and oyster shells on the
"We welcome the arrival of the Pioneer to
Freeport," said Mayor Glacken. "We expect that
the Esplanade, the newly completed waterfront
space on the Nautical Mile, which recently wel-comed
six United States Naval Academy sail-boats,
will become a popular 'port-of-call' for
other ships and tourist attractions," added the
The Pioneer is visiting the village as part of
a special program sponsored by the South Street Seaport Museum in New York City, which is affiliated with the
Long Island Marine Education Center located at 202 Woodcleft Ave. While docked at the Esplanade, the Pioneer
will be available for viewing and educational tours. Teachers and others interested in onboard programs should

More than 100 children took part in a day of tennis
instruction sponsored by the U. S. Tennis Association
recently at Cow Meadow Park. The program is part of the
USTA's plan to bring tennis to local neighborhoods. The
rally was arranged through the efforts of Freeport's PAL
and local tennis instructor, Daniel Burgess, who is the
President of the U.S. Professional Tennis Association's east-ern
section. "Our goal is to bring professional level tennis
to the children and give them an opportunity to learn the
game from the best coaches," explained Mr. Burgess.
Pictured are some of the youngsters who took part in
the rally along with the USTA's Regional Director Renee
Lemmerman, and Director of Community Development
Janet Roberts. In the background are Mayor Bill Glacken,

A Busy Weekend for Freeporters
This past August, Freeport
played host for the fourth consecu-tive
year to the U. S. Naval
Academy's sailing squadron of mid-shipmen,
along with their com-manding
officers. The six boats were
docked from August 10th to August
12th, at our just completed
Esplanade on Woodcleft Ave.
Although the weather was overcast
for much of the weekend, there was
a steady stream of visitors eager to
see the sailing vessels, meet the
midshipmen and tour the boats.
The program is one of the many
training cruises offered to the stu-dents
at the U.S. Naval Academy.
These programs are considered
excellent tools for teaching leader-ship,
and resourcefulness. In observing
the Annapolis midshipmen, some-times
under difficult conditions,
including mechanical breakdowns
and bad weather, we saw them
working together to solve problems
and achieve results. We also met a
number of volunteers who donated
their time each year to be part of
The visit by the Annapolis crews
has become a fav6Tife~~sUmrneT~
event in the Village, with many resi-dents
looking forward to the arrival
of the sailboats. Over the four years
that they have been visiting
Freeport, those officers who have
returned each summer and the indi-viduals
who belong to the Naval
Academy's Parents' Club, have
become honorary Freeporters. They
continue to express their apprecia-tion
for the hospitality they receive
from the village each year. They
have also been able to mark and cel-ebrate
with us the tremendous
progress made in the revitalization
of the Nautical Mile.
It has been a pleasure to wel-come
these young men and women
to Freeport each year. While I'm
sure they enjoyed our hospitality, it
has also been delightful for our res-idents
and visitors to see them and
watch these young people who
exhibit the promise and hope that
comes with working together
toward a common goal.
We hope the bond between the
U.S. Naval Academy and Freeport
continues to strengthen each year,

a 'port-of-call' for the Annapolis
sailing squadron as well as a site for
many other waterfront activities in
the coming years.
