Sag Harbor Community Notes, February 13


I had a blast at HarborFrost, how about you?Also, I’m so glad to be able to share some good news about the daring rescue of Morgan, a 2-year-old golden retriever, on Saturday during HarborFrost.

The poor doggie was pulled out of the frigid waters of Long Beach by members of the Sag Harbor Village Fire Department’s dive team. The pup was scooped out of the water after being trapped for 45 minutes and was then treated at East End Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center in Riverhead. Morgan is now safe at home and surrounded by family. Yay!

I’ve got tons of news to share this week so let’s get down to it. I’ll start with the biggest, at least on the personal front. After nearly seven wonderful years here at The Press, I have decided to move on. It’s been a great time and I’ll cherish the memories.

My last Spyglass column will be next week. Do you know a good replacement? Please email
