Fire Island Pines Property Owners Association
Verizon FIOS Subscriptions & Spring Community Meeting
Spring Community Membership Meeting - This Saturday, May 22nd

Are you a new homeowner from the past year or so? This is your chance to take part in a FIPPOA tradition to introduce yourself and to be welcomed by the community.

Come hear all of the exciting progress FIPPOA and its many volunteers, staff and board members have made since last season, over the Winter and early Spring.

We also have some exciting new announcements to make about Verizon FIOS. If you are interested in subscribing and package offerings, well…..just show up and be the first to hear the news!

We will conclude the meeting with an open community forum encouraging questions and feedback.

A very non-Keto breakfast will be served at 10AM with a 10:30AM meeting start on the deck at Whyte Hall. The forecast is 65 degrees clouds dancing in the sky. No excuses! If you are vaccinated, masks not required.

Here’s the agenda! Please find reports from our many, fabulous community groups here!
Get Vaccinated in the Grove

While there was insufficient interest for Northwell to set up a vaccination site at Whyte Hall, the good news is that they will be providing the one-shot J & J vaccine on Saturday, May 29th in Cherry Grove. All unvaccinated from the Pines are welcome. Make an appointment, though you can just stop in without one. For location and hours of operation, check it out!
Covid Mask Restrictions

Now that New York State has adopted the recent changes to CDC mask guidelines, we will be removing the signage in the harbor requiring masks. If vaccinated, you may now be maskless. However, masks are still required on public transport including Sayville Ferry, so we ask that when embarking and disembarking the boat, you continue to wear your mask until you have cleared the crowd of passengers and while on the boat.
AIDS Memorial Task Force

The Fire Island AIDS Memorial Task Force will have a community forum Saturday May 29th, 10:30-11:30AM at Whyte Hall. Please share in the opportunity to hear from Task Force members why there is a need for a memorial, the sites considered and the one selected, a discussion of the makeup of the memorial and presentation of a preliminary sketch. The memorial’s archives component will also be discussed. The forum is designed to create an opportunity for community input.
Spring Community Yard Waste Clean-up

Saturday afternoon will mark another Spring Community Clean-up Day. The first was for household items; this one is for yard waste only.

The cleanup will happen after the community meeting from 12:30 pm to 3:00 pm. See flyer for more details.

  • Dumpsters are for residents only
  • Dumpsters are only to be used between 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm on Saturday
  • Only yard waste will be allowed (see attached flyer for details)
  • No debris is to be left outside the dumpster for any reason, at any time

Volunteers Needed
Anyone who would like to volunteer with this weekend's cleanup, please email

A special THANK YOU to all the volunteers who helped us with the last community cleanup, including:
Sumner Freeman & Roy Yeager, Aly ElAttal, John Nasonte, Mark McElreath, Morty Ballen, Roman Gancberg, Joel Robare, Bill Hurst, Sebastian Lopez as well as residents who stayed and helped organize the dumpsters throughout the event.
Ferry Schedule

Please note that all “tbd” boats on the current Late Spring schedule are now running. And there is a late 9:30PM Thursday departure from Sayville (not even a triangle!). Always checks the SFS website for updates and cancellations.
Carrington Estate Cottage and Beach Clean-up

The cottage renovations got off to a great start with volunteers from the Pines and Grove beginning demolition and clearing debris during two days in April and May. And the Seashore Defense Fund’s partnership with FINS and Willie’s Superbrew had Pines volunteers removing bottles, balloons and every other form of unwanted trash on our new pristine beach. The sand is now so clean, you can practically eat off it! Kudos to the Pines volunteers aka the Beach Defenders!
See you Saturday morning!
