A few weeks ago I mentioned that local artist Mym Tuma was raffling off one of her paintings at the Mary O. Fritchie Art Show held on the Westhampton Beach Village Green the weekend of August 3-4. Well, Mym sent me an email this week to let everyone know that Scott Collins of Remsenburg was lucky enough to win a print of “Rocky Shores Blue.” Congratulations, Scott!Leslie Orofino will be performing at the gazebo on the Westhampton Beach Village Green this Thursday, August 22, at 7:30 p.m., and the show will be the second to last performance of the 2013 Summer Concert Series.
