    Adrienne Greene, CLTC, MBA New York Life Insurance Company Agent 520 Broad Hollow Road Melville, NY 516-983-8647 by Debbi Spiegel November has been called Thanksvember. Your family’s financial security is definitely something to be thankful for. Adrienne Greene, a licensed agent with New York Life Insur-ance Company, offers a full suite of products that can help you meet a number of insurance and financial needs. Some pretty important people count on you. Life insurance can give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they’ll have what they need, even if you’re not here to give it to them. Having a life insurance policy can go a long way to giving you the comfort of knowing that your loved ones will be cared for if the unthinkable happens. The basic premise is simple. Life in-surance gives you peace of mind while you’re alive, and financial support for your loved ones when you’re gone. There are sev-eral types of life insurance pol-icies, including term and whole life. Adrienne prides herself on educating her clients. She ex-plains that term life insurance (which is life insurance protec-tion which lasts for a certain period) is like “renting an apart-ment” and whole life insurance is like “buying a house.” Some-times thought of as “death insur-ance policies,” final expense policies pay benefits to the people you designate as your beneficiaries when you die. Certain term life policies can be

    converted to a permanent policy which is a useful benefit if your life changes and you need ad-ditional protection. Whole life insurance (which is permanent life insurance) builds cash value over time, and if your needs for the death benefit change, Whole Life gives you the option to take out a tax-free loan if needed for things like col-lege funding, retirement, manag-ing costs for extended periods of care, and lifetime income strategies. Accessing the cash value of the whole life policy will reduce the available cash surrender value and the death benefit so that needs to be taken into consideration. In addition policy loans will require interest payments during the payback period. Dividends are paid and provide an opportunity for the cash value to grow, although div-idends are not guaranteed. Adri-enne will analyze your needs and recommend appropriate so-lutions. Adrienne Greene and New York Life Insurance Company provide personal strategies for life insurance, retirement, wealth transfer, education funding, 401k rollovers, charitable giving, and long-term care. Business owners can learn about offering their employees benefits, retirement planning, business succession planning and asset protection. No matter what stage of life

    you’re in, whether starting out, newlyweds, growing a family, or approaching retirement, Adri-enne will get to know you and create a custom solution to meet your financial goals. Enrollment is open and not subject to the deadlines of health insurance plans. New York Life has policy options to fit your needs and budget. Life insurance isn’t just necessary, it’s essential for peace of mind. New York Life Insurance Com-pany has been in business for 175 years. It is a mutual life in-surance company, which means that its primary focus is on the needs of its policyholders , not outside shareholders.. They are committed to humanity, integrity and financial strength. Their pro-ducts offer security in this world of uncertainty. Generations of Americans have turned to New York Life to help them protect their loved ones, prepare for re-tirement, and plan for a secure financial future. Adrienne is out and about in our town. It is as easy as a phone call, Zoom meeting, or appoint-ment at your home or business. Her use of social media is very informative and educational. She keeps with all safety guidelines to protect against the spread of COVID-19. As a wife, mother, neighbor, PTO President, and Girl Scout leader, Adrienne can help your family to be prepared for the future. Life insurance is the ultimate love letter!

    On November 4, 2020 Town Supervisor Ed Wehrheim and the Town Board met for a Ground-breaking Ceremony for “Cele-brate Park” at the site of the former Irish Viking Bar on Lake Avenue in St. James. This park, spearheaded by Natalie Wein-stein, President of Celebrate St. James, will become the center-piece of the Historic St. James Cultural and Arts District as a central meeting place with new off-street parking, for a revital-ized economic community. It will celebrate our hometown he-roes, our art, music, history, and culture. It will be built by dona-tions from the people of St. James and will stand as a testa-ment to what local government, community minded organiza-tions, and hometown residents can accomplish together. Designed by Robert Retnauer, RDA Landscape Architecture, with the assistance of Architect

    Michael Morbillo of Enspire De-sign Group, and Designer Nata-lie Weinstein of Natalie Weinstein Design Associates, “Celebrate Park” will offer many ways for people, companies and organizations to “own” a part of it. From purchases of the 2021-

    22 keepsake “Hometown He-roes” calendar at a donation of $10 (or more), to inscribed bricks and blocks from $100 - $200, to major item donations, all dona-tions are welcome. Visit www.celebratestjames.org for more information.

    The St. James Chamber of the Commerce will host the Menorah light-ing on all eight nights of Chanukah, beginning Thursday, December 10, 2020 through Thursday, December 17, 2020. Celebrations are at 4:30 p.m. every evening except Friday which will be at 4 p.m. (before sunset). Join us on the triangle at the intersection of Lake Avenue and Route 25A in St. James. All are welcome. Bring friends and neighbors to cele-brate this Festival of Lights. Masks are required and family groups will be together but spaced apart from other families.

    Song sheets and special treats will be given out each night courtesy of the St. James Chamber. The treats can be taken to your car, or home, to eat so that we can keep our masks on while participating in the festivities.

    If you want to attend virtually, nightly cele-brations will be Live-streamed on the St. James Chamber of Commerce Facebook page. The Menorah is put up each year and main-tained by the St. James Chamber of Commerce. It was originally do-nated by Laura Hirsch, who will again coordi-nate this year’s event.

    Please remember those less fortunate and bring along a do-nation of non-perishable food items, new unused toys or gifts that you have purchased or have received and would like to regift to someone in need.

    A R O U N D T O W N

    by Patricia Busby & Patricia Clark On a perfect autumn day, No-vember 4, 2020, Celebrate St. James board members, along with Smithtown town officials stood together to officially unveil plans to build a new park in the center of our beloved town, “CELEBRATE PARK.” The revital-ization of Lake Avenue is well underway – and the best is yet to come! The park will be a testa-ment to what can be achieved when town government and the community work together for a common goal and the common good. Achieving this goal may be daunting, but also exciting – and far from impossible. Celebrate St. James invites you to share in this wonderful mile-stone for our town by “Owning a Piece of St. James” through the Celebrate Park Brick/Block drive. You can “set in stone” a personalized message on a brick for the walkway or seating wall in the park. Bricks are offered in 3 sizes, and other donation op-portunities are also available. Please see the ad in this issue of OUR TOWN. The “Hometown Heroes” keepsake calendar drive is also underway. The cover of this beautiful calendar features a work entitled “Embracing our Heroes” by Arline Goldstein, and every month features a local art-ist’s expression of feelings during these challenging times. The purchase of this calendar will also help to fund Celebrate Park. The holiday season will be here before you can say Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah!

    Celebrate St. James is teaming up with the St. James Fire Depart-ment Engine Company #1 and other local organizations to sponsor a “St. James Community Holiday Gifts & Toy Drive.” Do-nations of an unwrapped toy or a gift card can be brought to a drive-through event at Gyro-dyne/Flowerfield (25A entrance) on December 5 & 6 from 12-4 p.m. Santa will be on his sleigh aka Fire Truck for selfies and photos, and live holiday music will be played throughout the day. Our goal is to enable every child in the community to re-ceive a holiday gift, despite their family’s circumstances. Early do-

    nations of gifts can be dropped off at the TD Bank on Lake Ave-nue, and gift cards can be mailed to: St. James Holiday Gift & Toy Drive, c/o Celebrate St. James, 459 Lake Ave., St. James NY 11780. For more info email: [email protected] Celebrate St. James is also sponsoring a virtual Art Auction on the evening of Thursday, De-cember 3. The new virtual world has sparked so many innovative ways to get together. Marlin Art will provide the auction platform for this wonderful evening and a chance for you to spruce up your home for the holidays or buy a gift(s) for family and friends. Sponsor a Brick in the Park! Buy a calendar. Donate a toy or gift card. Check out the art auc-tion! There are so many things to look forward to. For more infor-mation, purchases, or to make a donation please check our web-site at www.celebratestjames.org.

    N E W S O F L O N G A G O

    by Bradley Harris, Smithtown Historian

    With the celebration of Thanks-giving this month, I thought that it would be interesting to take a look at what is known about the very first celebration of Thanksgiving that took place in October of 1621 in Plym-outh, Massachusetts when the Pilgrims celebrated the harvest of their crops.

    Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that we all enjoy as a day when family and friends gather and share a traditional meal of turkey and the trim-mings. It is as traditional as apple pie and ice cream, an all Ameri-can holiday. Yet it isn’t. For one thing, the celebration is certainly English in origin. Another thing to keep in mind is that the holi-day and its celebration has

    evolved and changed with the passage of time. Thanksgiving Day as we know it today began with President Lincoln in 1863 when he set the date for cele-brating a national day of Thanks-giving as the fourth Thursday in November. Of course, other gen-erations of Americans have mod-ified that date. President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed that in 1939 the date for the celebration of Thanksgiving ought to be No-vember 23rd. This year at least, Thanksgiving is on the fourth Thursday of November on the 26th. So let’s just enjoy it, and this year, give it a little more zest by celebrating it as the Pilgrims

    did so long ago in October of 1621 in Plymouth, Massachu-setts. If you are going to be a purist and really celebrate the holiday as the Pilgrims did, you first have to change the name of the cele-bration to “Harvest Home.” Ap-parently the Pilgrims had a festival that was more in tune with the English celebration than one that involved a day of prayer and Thanksgiving. Harvest Home was an “older mode of Thanks-giving” that was celebrated by English farmers once “the main crop was ingathered” and “it was cakes and ale and hang the cost.” Those who have studied that first Thanksgiving have con-cluded that “Plymouth’s Harvest Home conformed in most essen-tials to its English prototype.

    continued from page 18 Partakers of Plenty: A Study of the First Thanksgiving, Plymouth Plantation Educational Publica-tion Series, Plymouth Plantation, Plymouth, Massachusetts.) If you opt to celebrate the holi-day as the Pilgrims did, you should plan for a festival that will last approximately one week, but you can squeeze it into four days. You will need enough wild game to last for four days so it might be wise to prepare in ad-vance and send the duck hunters out early to bring home “geese, ducks, and possibly turkeys.” Governor Bradford of Plymouth Colony made sure that this was done beforehand. And during this festival, you should also plan for some “traditional recreations” that you and your guests can enjoy over the four days. You might want to include some sort

    of a parade, a shooting demon-stration with “muskets and fowl-ing pieces,” and some athletic competition. You might consider some of the things the Pilgrims could have done in this regard: archery, track and field events or cricket. These activities would approximate some of their ath-letic recreations. (James Deetz and Jay Anderson, op. cit.) The most important aspect of your celebration of Harvest Home, that of feasting, will take a little more preparation time. You don’t have to be concerned about table settings and enough chairs for the guests. If you do this the way the Pilgrims must have, you can eat outside (weather permitting). “The famil-iar scene to which we have be-come accustomed, of Pilgrims and Indians feasting together while seated at tables in the

    open, is most certainly a creation of later artists.... It is more likely that food was taken, not at an appointed time and place, but at frequent intervals throughout the time of the festival. Seating was almost certainly on the ground. Lacking forks..., food was taken with fingers, from the tips of knives, and with spoons. Wooden trenchers (small shallow dishes) were probably very much in evidence, while other food-stuffs could have been consumed directly from large kettles, or in the case of meat, eaten with the hands, hot from the roasting fire.”A bit messy perhaps, but it will certainly make the clean up of dishes and silverware a lot easier. (James Deetz and Jay An-derson, op. cit.) The actual food will be a little more tricky. The main focal point

    continued from page 20 of the meal will certainly have to be a “young, lean goose.” This will have to be “a domesticated bird, fattened on grain stubble.” You should prepare several ducks and wild turkeys to add to the repast, but the goose will be the piece de resistance. To sup-plement the goose, you might want to prepare several “fleshpies.” These would have been meat pies tucked into some kind of corn-meal pastry. You might want to make such a pie out of “old chicken, hare or pi-geon meat tenderized by hours of simmering and then baking.” Or if you have a deer hunter in the family, you could substitute venison as the Pilgrims surely must have done with the deer that the Indians brought to the feast. To add to the feast, you might want to make a “frumenty

    pudding.” This will give you trou-ble and require some research on how to make it, but suffice it to say that you want a pudding that will approximate old-fash-ioned rice pudding, only this dish will have a wheat base, spices, fruits, and sweeteners like milk and honey. The vegetable for this feast will have to be pumpkins that you can bake, stew, or make into a pudding. And to top off this feast, don’t forget “the cakes and ale.” The cakes are not quite what you are used to however. “The cakes were made of corn – roasted, pounded in a homemade mortar and pestle, mixed into a paste with water, and fried on a griddle into thin, crisp ‘pan’ cakes.” To wash these “dry and crumbly” cakes down, you will need ale. You might want to homebrew a sweet ale, but maybe at this

    point it would be easier to pick up some Molson’s Golden Ale. (James Deetz and Jay Anderson, op. cit.) There you have it – your own authentic Harvest Home celebra-tion. Actually, it sounds like it would be a lot of fun. If you de-cide to try and recreate Thanks-giving this way, by all means call me. I could roast the meat over an open fire. Have a happy Thanksgiving (or should I say Harvest Home). Editor’s Note: Brad Harris is the Town of Smithtown’s official Historian.

    by Rick Masters The artwork on Australia’s Crimes wine brand really stands out; the labels feature vintage mugshots of men like John Boyle O’Reilly, on the Red Blend, or Cornelius Dwyer Kane, on The Uprising, which is aged in a rum

    barrel. What both of these men have in common is that they were sentenced to “Transporta-tion,” a system where British convicts were relocated to hard labor in a Western Australia penal colony. Considered only slightly more humane than the

    death penalty, this practice began around 1788, and was ac-tive into the 1850s. To receive a sentence of Trans-portation, a person had to be convicted of at least one crime from a list of 19, hence the wine’s name. Although most crimes on the list are some type of theft, Bigamy, Impersonating An Egyptian and Watermen Car-rying Too Many Passengers On the Thames, If Any Drowned are also present. The wine bottles’ randomly distributed corks are each imprinted with one of the 19 Crimes Aside from offering a variety of surprisingly good wines at a value price, the 19 Crimes family of wines celebrates the personal-ities and histories of the people on the labels. Kane, for instance, settled in Queensland, becoming a civil servant. O’Reilly wrote poetry, escaped to America, then arranged to extract a small group of convicts to a whaling vessel by row boat; the event became known as the Catalpa Rescue.

    The Smithtown Township Arts Council is pleased to announce Celebrating Creativity: Creative Responses to Challenging Times, a fine art exhibition featuring 86 works by 51 artists through De-cember 19, 2020 at the Mills Pond Gallery, 660 Route 25A in St. James. Regular Gallery hours are Wed. - Fri., 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.; Sat. and Sun., 12 - 4 p.m. The gallery is closed Mondays and Tuesdays and closed Nov. 25 - 29. Visit millspondgallery.org or call 631-862-6575 for directions or information. Admission to the gallery is always FREE. Please use the rear parking lot off Mills Pond Road, directly across from the two white stone pillars at Flowerfield Celebrations, 199 Mills Pond Rd. Exhibiting artists represent 34 Long Island communities from

    New Hyde Park to Montauk as well as New Jersey and New York City. Artists were asked to show what they have been creating during the pandemic and to share their thoughts and feelings about creating during these chal-lenging times. Some works in the exhibit express the fear and anx-iety while others find beauty in nature, or celebrate simple pleas-ures of everyday life. Some artists created to share memories of past joyful times… some created work specifically about the pan-demic. Many shared that the cre-ation of their art helped process their feelings. The common thread… joy in the simple act of creating. Be sure to visit the gallery – it is a safe space – masks are re-quired with social distancing.

    Only 20 visitors are allowed in the gallery at one time with a limit of four per room. Enjoy the exhibit and experience art’s ca-pacity to bring joy and hope in these challenging times.
