Spring has sprung and so have the parking restrictions. As of April 1, if all goes according to plan, the Reutershan Parking Lot restrictions will resume. So any visit in to the village that will last for more than two hours, you will have to use the long-term parking lot, located behind Herrick Park. Just to note, there are two areas in the long-term parking lot. The area closest to the YMCA is for overnight parking, the other is not. I have made that mistake before.
Speaking of the YMCA, it is partnering with the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer. It is encouraging people to register for a lifesaving historical study, if you qualify. It takes very little effort, but the impact has the potential to change the impact of cancer for this and the next generation. The American Cancer Society’s new research study is called the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). By joining CPS-3, you can help researchers better understand the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that cause or prevent cancer, which will ultimately save lives.
First, you will need to enroll. If you are between the ages of 30 and 65 and have not been diagnosed with cancer (except basal and squamous cell skin cancer), please sign up for an appointment at www.cps3longisland.org. It’s quick to sign up (five minutes) and it’s easy to enroll (30 minutes or less).
You can spread the word via email, Twitter, Facebook, phone, and in person, or however you connect with your friends and family. Please share the link and invite people to participate.
There is a recommended video at the website.
The American Cancer Society is committed to making this cancer’s last century—and we need your help. Enroll today at www.cps3longisland.org and then help us spread the word. Do it.

On Thursday, the East Hampton Library invites you to its Socrates Cafe group. The group models its discussions from the book of the same name by Christopher Phillips. The idea behind the Socrates Café is that we learn more when we question and discuss with others. There are many Socrates Cafes across the United States—at libraries, schools and community centers. Discussions range from the current topics of today’s news, to age-old questions. This month’s topic is “What is Reality?”
All are welcome to attend.
The library will offer a technology workshop, “iPad Fun!” from 2 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday. In this class, basic operation, getting started, free apps, and eBooks will be discussed.
To sign up for library programs, call 324-0222, extension 3, email Reference@easthamptonlibrary.org with your full name and phone number, or stop by the adult reference desk.
