Mission Statement

The Mission of the not-for-profit Quogue Association is to foster the general welfare of the Village of Quogue and preserve its character as a desirable and attractive residential community, to support organizations that strengthen the quality of life in the Village and to acknowledge the accomplishments of individuals and groups whose actions have contributed to the welfare of the community.

About Us

The not-for-profit Quogue Association with over 1,000 members fosters the general welfare of the Village of Quogue and preserves its character as a desirable and attractive residential community. Our programs include:

Public Information Series

We host speakers on important issues for Village residents that include such topics as beach erosion, taxes, the environment, health care and more.

Village Gatherings and Events

Join hundreds of your Village neighbors at our annual duck race and family beach parties.

Civic Action

When necessary, we are proactive on issues such as the expansion of Gabreski Airport where five of our Trustees have served on the Community Advisory Board and other committees.  In the interest of protecting the quality of Shinnecock Bay, we organized a petition against the proposed parking of Recreation Vehicles off Dune Road in East Quogue.

Civic Awards

Periodically we present The Quogue Association Bowl to those who have contributed extraordinarily to the civic life of the Village through their volunteerism. In addition, we present The Humanitarian Award to members of the Quogue Police and Fire Departments who have performed above and beyond the call of duty. Each year, we present a high school student who is a resident of Quogue with our Community Service Award.

Beautification Projects

The Quogue Association is hard at work at another beautification project for the Village of Quogue. We are planning a Meditation Garden on the Village Green and we partnered with the Quogue Library and the Quogue Historical Society to restore the anchor at the library.  Over the past few years, we finished our renovation and landscaping of the Town Dock area, the Post Office garden and new landscaping in several different areas of the Village.  We also maintain the landscaping at the west entrance to Quogue Street from Montauk Highway, at The Post Lane Circle, and at the intersection of Post Lane and Dune Road. We hope you enjoy our lovely Village!

History

The Quogue Association evolved from the Quogue Improvement Association formed in 1905 to control the unbearable dust from the loam roads and to replace oil street lamps with gaslights. In 1929 this became the Quogue Protective Association to counter an epidemic of burglaries. In 1961 this group became the Quogue Association of today.

March 2018

Dear Fellow Quogue Resident:

The Board of Directors of the Quogue Association is encouraging you to become a member, or renew your membership to the QA.

The Mission Statement of the QA is to foster the general welfare of the Village of Quogue and preserve its character as a desirable and attractive residential community. The Association has pursued this mission since its incorporation almost 70 years ago. The completely volunteer association monitors activities in the Village, advocates where appropriate, and sponsors a number of activities and projects.

Member dues are still very reasonable ($40 for a single membership or family). This letter is our initial membership appeal for the year 2018.

To become a member or renew your membership please go directly to our new website www.quogueassociation.org and complete the application. If you have already paid for your 2018 membership, thank you for your support.

In keeping with this Mission Statement, the Quogue Association sponsors:

  • the annual Village Beach party
  • the informative State of the Village address by our Mayor Peter Sartorius,
  • the State of the Town address by the Southampton Town Supervisor,
  • the Police and Resident “Meet and Greet”
  • annually awards a college scholarship to a Quogue School graduate

Along with the Quogue Library and the Quogue Historical Society, the Quogue Association assisted in restoring the historical anchor from the sailing ship, Nahum Chapin, that sits in front of the Quogue Library.

This past year the Quogue Association brought a beautiful new clock to the Village Pond area and added new landscaping and a new fence at the Village Post Office.

We continue to maintain all of the landscaping from our previous projects:

  • the village dock restoration,
  • all of the plantings at the west entrance to Quogue Street from Montauk Highway,
  • the Post Lane Circle
  • the intersection of Post Lane and Dune Road.

The Quogue Association periodically honors our community leaders with the Quogue Bowl on display at the Quogue Library.

Through the generosity of the Crowe family, we are partially funding an area of the restored Village Green in honor of Lynn Crowe, a long serving and dedicated member of the Quogue Association. This area features a lovely serpentine bench designed by Village resident, Stuart Disston.

Please visit our website often and follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see additional projects in the coming months. Continue to look for our monthly newsletter highlighting community activities.

The directors are hard at work trying to determine additional beautification projects to take on around our wonderful village and would welcome any ideas or suggestions you may have. You may contact us by mail or via our website/

We are again hosting the annual Beach Party on Friday, July 20th (Rain Date Friday, July 27th) The Quogue Association’s Duck Race is scheduled for Friday, August 10th.

We would like to extend our thanks for the continuing support of our membership, and express gratitude to the Mayor, Trustees, and Village staff for their on-going help and support!

Sincerely,
The Board of Directors of The Quogue Association
