Peter Paul Ostapow, a Certified Financial Planner ™ , has been a member of our community since he

moved to East Setauket with his wife Irene, three daughters, Jennifer, Susan and Caryn and his

beloved, West Highland White Terrier, Tamie in 1987 from Wantagh. Having been involved in his 

community, especially in the Levittown Kiwanis Club (where he served as President), he quickly

formed the Three Village Kiwanis Club in 1988 and is currently serving as its President. 

When Amanda their fourth daughter arrived Peter really became involved in the community.

He served on the Board of the Three Village Little League, Three Village Chamber of Commerce,

Three Village Historical Society and the now defunct Island Estates Community Association. 

Peter was  instrumental in developing the East Setauket  Pond Park and the installation of the footbridge. 

He was also instrumental in establishing the Key Club at Ward Melville High  School which now stands at

over 135 members. He seems to always be the go to guy when it comes to arranging community

events especially fund raising activities. Through his initiative, events such as the Annual Kiwanis Duck

Race and the Walk Through History came into being. He also helped create and foster the Annual

Holiday Parade in East Setauket in conjunction with the East Setauket Fire Department,

Three Village Chamber, Three Village School District and the Three Village Kiwanis Club.

In 1995, Newsday recognized his hard work and dedication to his community by selecting him as

Volunteer of the Year. The following year the Village Times Newspaper nominated him as Man of the

Year in Business for his efforts to the good of our community. Even the late Sue Bridson, recognized

his community involvement in her featured article entitled “What makes him tick?”
