The crisp autumn air hasn't been the only refreshing shift Seatuck has received the past two weeks. The building has received its annual fall makeover which wouldn't be complete without diligent volunteers, flying bats, a staircase spider, and mice climbing the light fixtures. There's more to the decorating than just atmosphere however. All of Seatuck's Halloween displays are designed to mimic the natural world by including only native animals you would find locally this time of year.
Everyone joined the creative process. The Great South Bay Garden Club devoted hours to beautifying the Scully Mansion entrance and walkways. Seatuck friend, volunteer, and decorator extraordinaire, Lisa Smith, took to the ladders to make sure the moss was perfected and the overhanging, lighted trees had plenty of spooky crows to keep the Halloween aura. Enrico hand painted a fall moon for a shadowy owl display. Families spun beautiful spider webs in the bird room. We couldn't have done it without our numerous volunteers. It's truly a work of art.
