Have you ever wondered who tends to the Remsenburg Veterans Memorial and the post office gardens?Well, volunteers from the Remsenburg Garden Club lovingly plant and prune the lovely plants. Plants are purchased using donations raised by members throughout the year. The club’s biggest fundraiser is its annual Wreath, Boutique and Bake Sale that is being held this year on Saturday, December 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at The Remsenburg Academy, 130 South Country Road.
Holiday plants, including poinsettias, will be available for purchase. They will also hold a raffle and the prizes will include gift certificates and gifts from local businesses. Donations are already in from Stone Creek Inn, The Patio, Casa Basso, Michelangelo’s of Eastport, Trackside Café, Bay Gardens, O’Suzanna and Garcia Jewelery, and more are expected. Raffle tickets are $5 each, or six for $25. You do not need to be present to win.
A wreath with a bow costs $35, and a Della Robbia wreath is $50. Poinsettias are either $10 or $25 each. The wreaths are hand decorated by Remsenburg Garden Club members and early orders are appreciated. As a matter of fact, you must pre-order. To do so, please call Dorothy Labowski at (631) 325-8603.
The Remsenburg Association will feature a wonderful exhibit from “The New Forms Group” this Saturday and Sunday, November 16 and 17, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. The collection features pottery, jewelry, wood sculptures, fiber art and photographs.
These talented artists have shown their works all over the East End and their creations will be featured under one roof for this exhibition. Stop on down to see some great art and friends, and you might even find a holiday gift or two.
The Westhampton Free Library in Westhampton Beach will sponsor a staged reading of the play “Ships in the Night,” written by Remsenburg author James Kingston, on Saturday, November 16, at 2 p.m. The play is set in Westhampton and is a light-hearted comedy that takes place over Labor Day weekend.
The Westhampton Writer’s Group is presenting this reading that also features two other Remsenburg residents: Robin Windels Ruggiero and Carolann DiPirro. There is no charge to attend but reservations are recommended. Call (631) 288-3335 and request seating for event No. WHA601.
Local senior citizens will hit the stage at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Sunday, November 17, at 3 p.m., for a special performance titled, “The Seasons of Our Lives.” The performers are local senior citizens who have worked with professional artists to create a unique show that will feature a few musical numbers.
There is no charge to attend the show, which is part of the PAC’s “Melodies & Memories” program that is run with assistance from Southampton Town Senior Services. Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis.
It may be getting cold outside, but I was cajoled into trying a frozen yogurt place located in the King Kullen Shopping Center in Manorville called Yogurt Café. There are several of these “scoop your own” stores to the west.
Customers get to add their own toppings from a huge topping bar that includes whipped cream and fresh fruit. The ladies working the counter said they are staying open all winter. The yogurt is all gluten free and there are some sugar-free choices. Call the Yogurt Café at (631) 772-5041 if you need more details or just check it out for yourself.
