On Thursday morning (10/23), one of our neighbors was in a terrible accident at the entrance to the Hamptons. We sincerely hope that he makes a full and speedy recovery.
The accident occurred just as the school bus arrived to pick up Hamptons children for school. While it is unfortunate that they were witness to the accident, the driver was lucky that a few of the neighborhood Dads were also at the entrance. Tom Fischer, Al Taylor, and Ed Dapier jumped into action to comfort the kids and get them on the bus, to call 911, to direct traffic down Waukegan Road and to assist Hamptons residents driving out of the Hamptons. They helped comfort the victim, keeping him calm and conscious.
We’d like to ask that you please keep the accident victim in your thoughts and prayers and if you see Tom, Al or Ed give them thanks for being such great neighbors and helping out in a difficult situation.
Halloween in the Hamptons
Witches, ghosts, vampires? Ballerinas and superheros? Is it only a movie? No - it's Halloween in the Hamptons! Trick-or-treat hours are 4pm to 7pm on Friday October 31st. If you don't wish to participate, please turn off your coach lights and/or entry door lights during trick-or-treat hours. Please use extra caution driving through the community while the kids are out - twilight and evening light make it harder for you to see them, costumes and masks make it harder for them to see you. Have fun - be safe.
