The Round Table


A visit with people who live in, work in,
or visit the South Country area of Long Island.


 
Our Guests...

Bobby
Bobby Sterling
and his Bike!

You may not know Bobby Sterling, but if you live in or visit the South Country area, you know who Bobby Sterling is. You’ve seen Bobby riding his bike down South Country Road at all hours of the day and night in heat, wind, rain and snow and you’ve seen him riding his bike at the end of just about every parade that takes place around here. To Bobby, his bike is a magic carpet that makes it possible for him to travel to wherever his imagination takes him. Bobby is an important part of our community.

Some years ago, Gregg Giannotti recorded an interview with Bobby for a school project Gregg was working on. Gregg was kind enough to give us a copy so that we could share it with you. Even if you think you know Bobby, you’re going to know him a whole lot better after you listen to this interview.

Graheme Williams
Graheme Williams, The Beekeeper!

Bellport's own Graheme Williams is a very interesting person. He was born in New Zealand, educated in New Zealand and Canada, was a scientist at Brookhaven National Labs, volunteers to teach English to immigrants and bring classical music to the South Country area, and is a beekeeper at Isabella Rossellini’s farm in Brookhaven Hamlet. Now, that's interesting!

Rev. Tom Philipp
Rev. Tom Philipp

The Old South Haven Presbyterian Church was founded in approximately 1717. As you can imagine, the church has a long and very special history, but the church’s current Pastor, Rev. Tom Philipp, has an equally long and very special history. We can honestly say that Rev. Philipp is one of the nicest and most interesting people we have ever met. We’re sure you’ll enjoy listening to our conversation with him.

Rev Tom Turns 80Rev. Tom Philipp Turns 80!
On Saturday, February 20, 2016, Rev. Tom Philipp turned a spritely 80 years old. A party was held for Tom by nearly 100 of his friends and people who love him in the Church’s Carriage House behind the Church. We wish Tom the best of everything for many years to come.
