Lost and Found

We've received a couple emails recently from residents regarding an item that was “found” (or more appropriately “left behind”) and a few items that have turned up “lost” (or may in this case have been “borrowed” without the owner’s prior knowledge)… 

These folks have taken the right next steps by contacting the ALSC Blog to report the items for inclusion in the Lost & Found pages … however that is only part of the solution! We’d like to ask you, our readers, to please periodically check the Lost and Found pages so that you are aware of things that have turned up missing (this may even include those things that you were not aware you were missing, like the case with the glasses below!). 

You can also help to be a part of the overall solution by marking your property with you fire post number, or address, or phone number, or some other unique identifier… no, I’m not suggesting you put your post number on the outside side of your sunglasses but things like boats, paddleboards, dock furniture, etc is a good start to easily reunite items with their respective owners.

LOST: Two plastic gray Adirondack chairs and swim noodles from Post 13.  

FOUND: One pair women’s sunglasses left behind at the Standridge’s during the ALM Community Yard Sale. Pelican Paddle boat that is currently tied up to the Warner’s dock.

More Horses And A Larger Purse

This Saturday, September 10th is the date for the second annual Angle Lake Classic Horse ‘N’ Around Race at Jones Beach starting at 11:00 AM and running until 5:00 PM.  Volunteers are finalizing plans and race preparations while co-conspirators Jim and Judy are busy concocting new games of skill for race participants to compete in. Just as last year, these games are going to be as much fun to watch as they are going to be to compete in!  Should prove to be a great time for all involved.   
This year the field is being increased to a maximum of 12 teams competing for a total prize purse of $1,125.00!  Payout will be $600 for 1st; $300 for 2nd, $150 for 3rd and $75 for 4th place finishers. Early entrants scheduled to compete will include the 'Rise and Shine'; Little Darlins; and the Wakawakas!  A few spots are still open however team registration will close Thursday mid-night or when all available positions are filled.

Even if you should choose not to compete in the race, there is no room for ‘spectators’ at the Angle Lake Classic Horse ‘N’ Around Race as you can choose to participate in a scrumptious $5 Barbeque Lunch, or take part enjoying a refreshing beverage from the no host bar stock full of options, or embark on a winning spree by placing bets on your favorite ‘horse’ in their quest for victory! Even though we’ll be playing with Monopoly money, as spectator or competitor alike, you’ll be eligible for some nice WIN, PLACE or  SHOW raffle prizes depending on how wisely you play the odds.

Come on down to Jones beach this Saturday for a great day at the races!
