Are you ready for a rockin’ good time? Then you’re in luck: I’ve heard tell that the 10th anniversary celebration of our East Quogue Village Green is going to be a blast! This definitely-not-to-be-missed event, sponsored by the East Quogue Civic Association and East Quogue Chamber of Commerce, will take place on Saturday, May 25, from 2 to 4 p.m.
Mmmm … I can already taste the pulled pork and brisket from East Quogue’s own Ron Campsey of the New Moon Café. And I can almost smell the heavenly aromas of Scotto’s pizza and sausage heroes. The Boy Scouts will be in charge of the hamburgers and hot dogs, and Brewsters Seafood Market promises to have loads of clams on the half shell. A great selection of beer and wine from the Southampton Publick House will add to this fantastic epicurean experience. And, for the perfect ending, there will be ice cream treats from Atilla, East Quogue’s Mr. Softee!
Many thanks go to all of the amazing sponsors who are so generously supporting this event. Gold sponsors—attorney Dan Russo, Mendenhall Fuel, Heating and Cooling, and the Boardy Barn—each donated $500. The silver sponsors who donated $250 are: East Quogue Beautification Committee, East Quogue United Methodist Men, Loper’s Equipment, Killer Grafx (Mike Tessitore), Shore Line Insurance Agency, Action Jackson Tree Service and Land Clearing, Hamptons.com, Suffolk County National Bank (Hampton Bays/Westhampton Beach), Hampton Jitney, and Michael Algozzino Plumbing and Heating.
Little Jack Stalters turns 3 this Saturday, May 18. Helping him celebrate his big day will be his mom and dad, Jessica and Tony, his big brother, Andrew, and his grandparents, Candice and Thomas DeCicco. Happy birthday, Jack!
And, speaking of growing up, Avalon Vanderslice will be leaving our hamlet for Maryland. The Westhampton Beach High School senior will be attending Stevenson University this fall, where she plans to major in nursing. Way to go, Avalon!
