Wading River Local Market

Wading River Local Market


I have recently been working with an amazing group of local small business owners at The Wading River Local Market located in the loft space of Thrifts and Gifts 302 North Country Road Wading River NY 11792. The market is open Saturday and Sunday from 10am-5pm and some Fridays as well.
Each week this market brings together different local businesses to try to revamp the stagnating business district in Wading River. The market is a great way to help support your local farms through purchasing fresh produce/dairy/breads and even plants and flowers. You can get hand made jewelry, scarves, hats, soy candles, pet treats and so much more!
Every weekend the market tries to bring in new and different vendors to help spread the word about great small businesses right in your area. We are always looking for new vendors so if you or someone you know is looking to participate send us an email at Wadingriverlocalmarket@hotmail.com.
This weekend December 14th we are hosting a wine and cheese socail and announcing raffle winners!! Tickets are $1 or if you bring in a non-perishable food item you get a ticket for free!! We have set up adorbs gift baskets for you to win for the holidays and all of the proceeds go to the local food bank.

Dancing For The Paws Fundraiser

Dancing For The Paws

Dancing For The Paws


We know how much I love rescuing animals and how important the cause is to me. In my opinion pets are not rescued enough and people look for any and every excuse to purchase their pet because having a rescue pet has some sort of stigma attached to it.  This is so far from the truth!  There are some very awesome people who are having a fundraising event called Dancing for the Paws to help raise donatons for a great rescue called Friend of Freddie Pet Rescue.  Here is a little about them: Friends of Freddie Pet Rescue, located at 200 Middle Country Road Middle Island NY, is a nonprofit pet rescue, dedicated to finding homes for unwanted dogs and puppies. Our adoption process is simple and fast. Application, reference checks, home visit. Our adoption fees (like most rescues) are based on age of dog, breed and medical needs of the dog/puppy that is being adopted. Please visit our “up for adoption album” on our page, it is updated daily. Adoption fees include microchipping, up to date shots, spay/neuter and vet care after you adopt. Come and visit our center and fall in love.

You can join in the fun too on Tuesday November 5th from 6:30-10:30pm.  Your participation can help raise money and awareness for some great animals and a great rescue! You might even find a new best friend!! If you can’t attend please send a donation anyway! You can also bring donations directly to Friends of Freddie Pet Rescue or bring to the event.  Rescues can never get enough food, toys, blankets, newspaper, anything to help!  If you need any more information just ask!!! Please tell your friends and family the show will be great and who doesn’t want to have a good time while helping out a great cause!

Personal Favor For The Beagle & A Great Family

Fundraiser for Doug

Fundraiser for Doug



One of my closest friends has recently found out his 6 year old nephew has been diagnosed with Lymphoblastic Leukemia. This is a difficult thing for any adult to go through not to mention a child. Since there is only so much one family can do they have decided to have a fundraiser to help! Any little bit goes a long way. Please click here to read more about Doug and his family as well as see what you can do! There will be a fundraiser on June 22nd with food, drinks, fun, games, raffles and many other things! Once I have more details I will of course, keep you posted. Please help me help my friend and his family as this cause is very important to me and I don’t reach out like this often and let’s be honest can you resist that little face?!?!?!?! I don’t think so!
Please also share this link or post anywhere and everywhere you can! If you would like to donate a product or service for the raffle or even a gift to Doug or his family feel free to e-mail me accounts@thegreenbeagle.com. I appreciate any help for my friend and this super little boy!
Being that I have no idea what exactly Lymphoblastic Leukemia is as I am sure many of you don’t either here is what Wikipedia says: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a form of leukemia, or cancer of the white blood cells characterized by excess lymphoblasts.
Malignant, immature white blood cells continuously multiply and are overproduced in the bone marrow. ALL causes damage and death by crowding out normal cells in the bone marrow, and by spreading (infiltrating) to other organs. ALL is most common in childhood with a peak incidence at 2–5 years of age, and another peak in old age.
Cure is a realistic goal. ≥94% of children have continuous disease-free survival for 5 years and appear cured. 30-40% of adults have continuous disease-free survival for 5 years. [1][2][3]
Acute refers to the relatively short time course of the disease (being fatal in as little as a few weeks if left untreated) to differentiate it from the very different disease of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, which has a potential time course of many years. It is interchangeably referred to as Lymphocytic or Lymphoblastic. This refers to the cells that are involved, which if they were normal would be referred to as lymphocytes but are seen in this disease in a relatively immature (also termed ‘blast’) state.

Vice Consul: Ms. Fiona McCabe
Administrative Attaché: Ms. Monica Horgan

When communicating with the press, please use 11am at the British Consulate as the starting time. This will allow us to gather and get organized before doing media.


Original event invitation starts here:

Unless you live under a rock, you know that Lennox is a dog that was wrongfully seized and who has been sentenced to death after a 2 year battle to save him. All attempts to return Lennox to his family have failed. There are numerous petitions, letter writing campaigns and phone-in campaigns. It’s time to take it to the streets in support of the Save Lennox campaign.

This event is being organized by the Oreo’s Law Task Force, a project of No Kill New York. We chose to launch the event from the Oreo page because we hope that Oreo’s spirit and memory will shine on our endeavor. It is also our wish to let the people who hold Lennox’s life in their hands that the animal advocacy community never forgets an injustice. The campaign to honor Oreo’s memory started in 2009 and is still going strong today.

On Monday, July 9, 2012 @ 10:00 am we will gather at the British Consulate Office in New York City. When the Consulate closes at 12:00 Noon, we will move the protest to the Irish Consulate Office and continue there.
