It may not feel like spring, but signs of the season are everywhere. The crocuses are blooming, seasonal stores and restaurants have their “Opening Soon” signs out and the peepers can be heard on quiet evenings. As March (hopefully) goes out like a lamb this week, April arrives with many events and activities to enjoy.
Students Against Destructive Decisions and the Southold High School health office joined forces for National Kick Butts Day last Wednesday. Students and staff members were given the opportunity to trade in their cigarettes for gift cards donated by local businesses. Thanks to all who helped make the day a success.

Join Barbara Terranova on a hike at Goldsmith Inlet this Sunday, April 3, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. The cost is $5 per person. Children (age 9 and over, please) must be accompanied by an adult. Footwear with traction is recommended.
Andrew Seifert, a Southold seventh-grader, has been accepted to study in Europe this summer with the People to People student ambassador program. To offset the associated costs, he is launching a fundraising effort called “Cans for Andrew.” He is collecting plastic, glass and aluminum containers and applying the deposit money to his tuition. On Memorial Day weekend, he’ll also have a yard sale to further support his goal. Any extra money Andrew raises will be donated to the Southold Town Animal Shelter, where he volunteers on weekends. Andrew would like to thank the Southold PBA for its generous donation in support of his efforts.
Congratulations to Rob Surozenski, who will be promoted to the rank of sergeant on April 1. Rob is a United States Marine currently assisting earthquake victims in Japan.
