East Hampton Community Notes, August 21


It is so hard to keep up with all the events, let alone trying to go to most of them.

This past weekend was the Artists Writers Softball Game, which I have to admit, I did not attend. The Village is hard enough to maneuver around, let alone with the game happening. Friends of mine attended and played in the game. Of course, the artists won. Congratulations.

A local guy, Dell Cullum, has been making waves in the Hamptons. Dell, besides being a wildlife rescuer, is also a very good photographer. The images he captures are truly extraordinary. He has a keen eye for nature. His latest tidbit that he had uploaded to Facebook and that went viral in a matter of 24 hours, is a short video of the “other Hamptons.” The images are of trash that is being left on beaches, next to bins, kids poking a stick at ducks while their mom calmly looks on. Basically, poor human behavior is abundant, while neglecting nature. Everyone should see this video; it’s a real eye-opener. You can see it on YouTube, titled “The Sad Truth: Summer in the Hamptons” or visit imaginenature.com.

In school news, Kelly J. Naula earned dean’s list honors at Saint Joseph’s University. Kelly is majoring in elementary education.

Guild Hall has a number of events scheduled for this weekend, including a house and garden tour. Among the homes included in the tour are the Elizabeth Lear garden, Tristana Waltz garden, Ngaere Macray and David Seeler garden, Andrew Sabin garden, Brooke Kroeger and Alexander Goren garden, a breathtaking garden in Bridgehampton, along with complimentary admission to LongHouse Reserve and Madoo Conservancy.

For more information about the garden tour and other events, go to www.guildhall.org.

The annual “Drive to Educate” golf tournament to benefit the Greater East Hampton Education Foundation will take place on September 11 at the East Hampton Golf Club. For registration information, call 329-6462.

Glenn Horowitz Bookseller is pleased to announce “Almond Zigmund: Interruptions Repeated (Again and Again),” an exhibition of sculpture and works on paper, opening in the upstairs gallery on August 25 and on view through September 22. A reception for the artist will be held on Sunday, August 25, from 4 to 6 p.m.

On Wednesday, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the East Hampton Library, is a movie screening of “Random Harvest. ” Starring Greer Garson and Ronald Coleman, the film is an Oscar-nominated classic love story based on the novel by James Hilton.

Wednesday, from 6 to 7 p.m., is the Sci-Fi Book Club at the library where “The Flame Alphabet” by Ben Marcus will be discussed.

On Thursday, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. is the Battle of the Books reunion and recap. RSVP to Lisa if you plan to attend at lisa@easthamptonlibrary.org.

On Saturday, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., is an Author Talk with Caroline Rob Zaleski, who wrote “Long Island Modernism 1930-1980.” This stunning book highlights the work within Suffolk and Nassau counties of 25 internationally renowned architects such as Wallace Harrison, Frank Lloyd Wright, Marcel Breuer and Edward Durell Stone. Zaleski explains why modernism was embraced by Long Island’s civic, cultural, and business leaders, as well as by those who wanted to settle away from the city during an epoch when open space was prime for development.

The East Hampton Library has employment positions open in the circulation and inter-library loan departments. See the job descriptions and requirements on their website, along with classes that are being offered. Sign up at the Reference Desk, call 324-0222 ext. 3, or email

Camp Karole, which has served the community for the past 30 years, has announced that it will be re-envisioning camp for next summer. With the increase in summer camp opportunities on the East End, Camp Karole will be looking for new and innovative ways to continue to serve the community in the future. For this year, though, all Camp Karole campers—past and present—are invited to the Camp Olympics on Friday at 11 a.m. Camp Karole is located at the Jewish Center of the Hamptons.
