1st Annual Winter Wonderland Street Fair and Festival!

 

The Chamber of Commerce of the Moriches is so very excited to announce the 1st Annual Winter Wonderland Street Fair and Festival! We have a wonderful committee of Chamber members that dreamed up this Winter Wonderland event and they are working with Santa’s elves to make it a Main Street hit! There will be vendors, music, hot chocolate, and more secret surprises to come! Don’t fret, Santa will be there, too! This will be happening the weekend of the Christmas Tree lighting and the Christmas parade. The Winter Wonderland will be the cherry on the cake to end a truly magical Holiday Weekend for our Moriches area!

Meet Our 2021 Veterans Day Grand Marshal!

We are happy to announce our very first female Veterans Day Parade Grand Marshal, Corporal Jean Littman!

Corporal Jean Littman, of the U.S. Marines, was a trailblazer.  She was determined to become a Marine at a time when it was incredibly uncommon to do so, The Korean War era. Jean spent 4 years in the Marines serving her country during wartime. She came back to the United States, got married, had 4 amazing sons, and has continued to work and contribute to her community for over 40 years! Jean still volunteers as the Communications assistant for the LI Chapter  of the Woman Marines Association.

This was such a difficult decision for our board because all of our nominees this year were spectacular!

Please celebrate with us, and welcome Jean as our Grand Marshal for our annual Veterans Day Parade, on November 7th at 2pm.
