A surprise meeting in Albany
Members of Cutchogue Troop 1205 recently attended Girl Scout Legislative Day in Albany to present their award-winning display on their community service project with Kent Animal Shelter. There, they ran into state assistant attorney general Eileen Bryant, who grew up in Greenport and was also a Girl Scout. She invited them to see her office, sit in on a trial and tour the attorney general’s office. The scouts also met with Sen. Kenneth LaValle and Assemblyman Marc Alessi, to whom they proposed a new law. Standing, from left: Aydan Ackermann, Ashley Motherway, Emily Sidor, Jordyn Dickerson, Karolina Morawski. Seated: Ms. Bryant and Emily Berezny.

Graduation Day is the culmination of a parental dream of hope and the promise of a fruitful, productive life that begins when a child is born. Mid-May is a time of pride and joy for so many parents as they attend their children’s graduations.

Sue and John Stype are among the Cutchogue parents experiencing just that, and more. Annie Stype has graduated from Villanova, was offered a job in Atlanta, Ga., and, if that wasn’t enough, became engaged. Congratulations and G-d bless!

Congratulations to the Class of 2010! In the words of Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Proud grandparents Ann and Larry Ekster celebrated their 35th anniversary with the birth of their first grandchild, Emily Lucy, born April 28 to their son, Mike, and his wife, Patty, who live in Massachusetts. Aunt Michelle, Uncle Tim and Uncle Chris welcome their new niece to the family.

An amazing cast will descend on Mattituck Presbyterian Church to deliver songs ranging from classic rock ballads to soaring gospel pieces in “Heart for Haiti: Music to Move the Soul,” a concert to benefit the relief and rebuilding effort. Performances will take place Saturday, May 22, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 23, at 3 p.m. Seating is first come, first served. In addition to the lively music, original art by Haitian and local artists will be on sale. A free-will offering will be collected and all money raised will go toward humanitarian efforts in Haiti.

Belated birthday wishes are being sent to Joanne Goeller.

There’s a lot happening at Cutchogue-New Suffolk Library this week — too much to list here, in fact. Please check the Community Calendar for details.

Have a good week!
