will be presented by Noel Gish. Due to the abundant natural growth on Long Island and its surrounding waters, the island became well known for those riches. Due to those same riches we also became home to pirates who came from both sea and land to take for themselves whatever they could. The tales of their exploits make for a fascinating and exciting history that Mr. Gish will relate to us in his inimitable delightful fashion. (Remember his memorable presentation at Buoy One last year?!)
