Summer may be over as far as the tourist season goes, but for those of us who live here, it is a favorite time of year. We can take back our favorite beaches, left-hand turns are possible during the week and the farm stands are filled with delicious produce. Cooler days and evenings add to the appeal of the season, making it even more enjoyable.

Southold school fall athletes have been practicing diligently and are ready for action. Check for schedules.

There will be a parade at 3 p.m. beginning at Ackerly Pond Lane and concluding at the main firehouse. Then at 6 p.m., a band and DJ will be on hand to provide entertainment.

Jeff and Jenny Boyle welcomed a daughter, Sophia Lynn, on Sept. 1. She tipped the scales at 7 pounds, 1 ounce. She was out and about on Sunday with her big brother, Brendan, who didn’t seem to mind sharing the stroller with his sister.

Southold Fire Department members Paul Reinckens, Barry Standish and Jim Van Gorden traveled to Broome County, N.Y., along with members of the Orient Fire Department, as part of the state’s Fire Mobilization and Mutual Aid Plan to assist in relief efforts after the recent floods.

Thanks to a grant from the Great Hudson Heritage Network, two early portraits in Southold Historical Society’s permanent collection will be conserved. The portraits of Esther Albertson Wells and Joseph Albert Wells are part of the only known group of intact portraits of a single North Fork family.
