Eastport Community Notes, July 11


It’s 7/11 and you know what that means: Free Slurpee Day! So, get on over to your nearest 7-Eleven convenience store and enjoy an ice cold Slurpee … on them!The Fourth of July weekend (a four-day weekend for many) was pretty much perfect, I would have to say. The weather cooperated and even though it was hot, there was always an ocean breeze or a dish of rainbow sherbet to help out.

We packed in all the components necessary to make the holiday weekend perfect: A beach picnic, tennis matches, reading under a shady tree, a nap here and there, local blueberries in our pancakes, ribs and burgers, yard sales and very little house or yard work.

The East End Arts School on Main Street in Riverhead offers summer arts camps and kids programs, including Wednesday night art classes for kids ages 8 and up, theater camps for kids ages 9 to 14, “Mom and Me” art classes for kids 2 and over and their mothers, and even a student orchestra for music students ages 8 to 18. For more information or to register, call (631) 369-2171 or visit www.eastendarts.org.

Eastport South Manor Community for the Arts members are planning their third annual golf outing for Thursday, September 26, at the Rock Hill Golf and Country Club in Manorville.

The festivities will include the inaugural Golf Ball Drop, and only 1,000 tickets will be sold at $20 each for this event. Golf balls will be dropped from a helicopter and onto the driving range at 6 p.m. that day, and three prizes will be awarded to those who own the balls that are closest to the pin! First prize is $4,000, second prize is $1,000 and third prize is $500.

To find out more about the tournament and Golf Ball Drop, please visit www.esmca.org. There are sponsorship opportunities available for the following items: beverage cart, gifts, tees, the driving range and putting greens, to name a few. This sounds like it will be a lot of fun for golf enthusiasts.

The Eastport South Manor Community for the Arts is a non-profit organization committed to promoting and protecting arts in education for all of our students. This is their biggest fundraiser of the year, so please participate any way you can!

The Boomers will be performing this evening, Thursday, July 11, on the Village Green in Westhampton Beach. Bring a picnic, bug spray and a chair and relax by the gazebo, located on the corner of Mill Road and Main Street, for the village’s Thursday Night Gazebo Concert Series.
