Saturday, December 6th was the Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration at Smith Point. Although minor conflict clouded the days leading up to it, the night was ultimately a gathering of friends, neighbors and the community spirit that abounds when people come together for a common good. Both Smith Point organizations celebrated the season of hope, illuminating the night with festive decorations, holiday music, and the bright smiles of children as they greeted Santa Claus.
Later that same evening, Pattersquash Creek Civic Association and Mastic Beach Property Owners Association held a joint celebration at their Christmas Tree Lighting. Hundreds of residents turned out at the newly decorated gazebo on Neighborhood Road bringing good cheer and community pride to welcome in this holiday season. It was a wonderful evening for all.
The Smith Point Peninsula Homeowner's Association wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Kwanza or whatever holiday you and your family may be celebrating. Blessings and good tidings to all!

Members of Smith Point Peninsula Homeowners Association have donated two lighted wreaths to decorate the Smith Point Bridge. After applying for all of the proper permits, Mike Trotta, Vinny Albino and Frank Lombardo designed and created the wreaths, and hung them on the north and south walls of the bridge house. They certainly add that festive touch as cars and campers travel over the bridge.
Special thanks to Suffolk County Department of Public Works and the William Floyd Community Summit and members Debra and Richard Hagan for their cooperative efforts with Smith Point Peninsula Homeowners in bringing this idea "to light".
