Prom night is this Friday — an important event for many of our young people. At 6 p.m., the PTSA will generously host a pre-prom reception for Mattituck students on the school’s front lawn. Community members, family and friends are all invited to come see them all dressed up, having their names announced and enjoying refreshments. Then the students board buses for the Hyatt in Riverhead for a night to remember.

Well, Katie bar the door! Can’t believe the summer season kicks off this weekend, the North Fork will once again be the destination for recreation and the ferry lines will snake the East End. On the flip side, it’s always special to welcome back old friends and snow birds.

A Cappella

If you missed A Cappella in the Park Saturday, you missed a really enjoyable time. The Greenport and Riverhead high school a cappella groups, as well as groups from Northport, Plainview and Rutgers University, performed to a packed crowd. Thanks to Trustee Doug Roberts for putting this together. Let’s hope it becomes an annual event.

Tuesday Crew

At 8 a.m. Tuesday morning, a construction crew descended on Hallockville Museum Farm in Northville like clockwork, installing new columns on the Hallock Homestead’s front facade. But instead of hard hats and overalls, the 13 men wore flannel button-down shirts and khakis. Some sported caps proudly declaring their service in World War II.
