Basin Harbor is delighted to welcome back our returning guests! Yuri & Irina Galperin join us this week from Oak Hill, VA, and Lucie Van der Veer of Pittsburgh, PA will be here for the week, as well. We are glad to see Tyler & Brooke Beebe of Briarcliff Manor, NY—welcome back! Our friends Dr. Philip & Gloria Martinez are at the Harbor for the holiday weekend from Hoosick Falls, NY, and Peter & Natalia Holtzman join us for Labor Day merriment away from their bustling New York City. How nice to see Mr. & Mrs. Geoff Dowd, who are down from Pointe Claire, Quebec. Great to have you all with us!

We wish a very special Happy Birthday to Mary Ellen Rigano, who is here with her family to celebrate turning 70 years old! We hope you all enjoy your lovely festivities at the Harbor!

Basin Harbor’s last Bingo game of the season produced some lucky winners on Thursday night! Ellie Burke from Rye, NY took home the prize for Regular Bingo, while Ben Berke of Larchmont, NY dominated X Marks the Spot. The Aschettino family of Oyster Bay, NY dominated the Bingo cards for several games, including a win by Cathy for Four Corners, Ava for Postage Stamp, and Aurora for High Stakes. New York City’s Samuel Gatsos stole away with the pile of cash for Picture Frame, while Andrew Epprecht from Madison, CT dominated Losers Bingo. Our reigning Blackout champion of the night was the lucky young Emmett Coakley of Wellesley, MA, who went to bed dreaming of all the cool things he could buy with that extra $100. Nicely done, Bingo-ites! Congratulations to our winners!
