The following story was written by one of the 3rd grade students in Mrs. Geraldine Batterberry’s Class, Cherry Avenue Elementary. “The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs” by Betty G. Birney was the inspiration behind the story.
Sayville is a wondrous place. I have lots of Wonders to share about Sayville, so I’m going to prove it to you and tell you about my favorite 7 Wonders about Sayville.
My first Wonder is the Sayville Library. There are lots of books there. Have you ever gone to the programs there? I have and they are great!
My second Wonder is the Sayville Common Ground. It’s so much fun on a cool night to listen to the music or go to the Family Friday’s in the summer.
My third Wonder is the Candee Avenue Park. Not that many people know about it, so it is sort of a mysterious place. There is a big field and a willow tree to sit under.
My fourth Wonder is the Great South Bay. On hot summer days I would throw on my bathing suit and go to the water for a swim.
My fifth Wonder is Sayville Ralph’s Italian Ices. Have you ever been there on a hot night hoping your ice doesn’t go away?
My sixth Wonder is my favorite Wonder – Cherry Avenue School!!! It has lots of assemblies, field trips and of course, great teachers!!!
My seventh Wonder, last but not least, is West Sayville’s Maritime Museum. I picked this because just last Labor Day I went to the Maritime Museum for a festival called Bradstock. Bradstock was fun and lots of bands played great music.
Now you see that Sayville is a wondrous place to live and be in. There are lots of fun things to do in Sayville. Go see these Wonders one time and you’ll figure out why I picked them.
