Quogue Community Notes, June 6


Bring your appetite for good food and a very good time to the annual Quogue School PTA Chicken Dinner fundraiser on Friday, June 7, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., at the school on Edgewood Road.

Come one, come all to enjoy barbecue chicken, delicious desserts, music from a DJ, face painting, raffles and all manner of fun. Tickets are $20 for adults or $10 for children, available at The Lily Pad or from PTA members. For additional information, call (631) 514-4461, or e-mail maperlow@optonline.net.

This is the last weekend for performances of “How the Other Half Loves” at the Quogue Community Hall on Jessup Avenue. Tickets have been selling at quite a brisk pace, so if you haven’t seen this very funny show yet and think you’d like to, it might be a good idea to go to www.hamptontheatre.org or call 1-866-811-4111 and get your tickets now.

Showtimes are 7 p.m. on Thursdays, 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:30 p.m. on Sundays through June 9.

All residents of our village—those who come to the theater, and even those who don’t—should give a special round of applause to all the people at Village Hall and all the people involved in village government for making it possible for the Hampton Theatre Company, the Quogue Junior Theater Troupe and Quogue Chamber Music, to name the principal beneficiaries, to make use of this beautiful space in ways that truly benefit us all.

One show closes; another one opens: The next Quogue Chamber Music concert at the village theater is scheduled on Saturday, June 15, at 7 p.m. The Amphion String Quartet will present the music of Haydn, Schubert and Beethoven and a post-concert celebration will be held at the home of Nancy Mullan Demirjian.

Tickets for the concert alone are $40, or $5 for students with ID. Tickets for the concert and celebration are $100. Send checks payable to “Quogue Chamber Music Inc.” to P.O. Box 1984, Quogue, NY 11959, visit www.quoguechambermusic.com, or get to the box office on the night of the show, when it opens at 6:30 p.m.

The Amphion String Quartet will also give a performance for students at the Quogue School on Thursday, June 13.

The reception was on Tuesday, but the acrylic paintings of birds created by the fifth grade class at the Quogue School are still on view in the Nature Center of the Quogue Wildlife Refuge until next week. Be sure to get over there and have a look before they come down.

The Immaculate Conception Church on Quiogue will hold its 100th Anniversary Celebration Barbecue on Saturday, June 8, in the parish center, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Tickets for lobster dinners are $50, chicken dinners are $30, and hot dog dinners are $12; all dinners include salad and dessert. There will be free hot dogs for children under 3 and takeout service will be available. Wine and beer cost $3 each; soda and water are $1.

Entertainment includes a DJ and karaoke, and face painting for the children. Tickets are available at the church rectory or at Lynne’s Cards and Gifts on Main Street in Westhampton Beach.

For the 14th year in a row, Jane Pontarelli of Quogue is chairing the Play for Pink golf outing fundraiser at Hampton Hills in Westhampton, benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation founded by Evelyn Lauder in 1993.

The entry fee is $275 per player, and there are still some sponsorship opportunities available. Shotgun start will be at 8:45 a.m., and breakfast, lunch, goody bag and shopping will all be available. For more information, call Jane Pontarelli at (917) 679-9433.
