Children return from camp, community summer programs end, school supply drives are in full swing and parents take their children off to college.

In her commencement address, Mattituck High School valedictorian Katherine Hoeg recalled learning one of life’s great lessons. When she started high school she couldn’t wait to graduate; now, she is saddened by the thought of leaving the people and school she came to love. Also present at the graduation were members of the 25th anniversary Class of 1991, including class president Jennifer Foster, who gave a funny, well-written speech; and members of the 50th anniversary Class of 1966, including Jeffrey Smith and his wife, Susie. Special recognition went to 50-year alumna Carol McCaffrey and granddaughter Cecilia Stevens, who graduated with honors and numerous scholarships. Here’s to the Class of 2016. May your lives be filled with great discoveries and much success! As salutatorian Jack Dufton said, quoting Dory from “Finding Nemo”: “Keep on swimming!” Congratulations and God bless!

Moms and caregivers are scurrying to get things out of storage or buy sandals, shorts, hats and sunscreen. Remember that even though the official first day of summer isn’t until June 20 the sun is still strong enough to cause a burn. Put on your sunscreen!

The agricultural landscape is one of the reasons most choose to live on the North Fork. Our local farm stands make it easier than ever to bring home and eat tasty, fresh, healthy produce. As you drive through the town, take notice. You can see the activity level increasing as our farm stands begin to show signs of life, and with some even opening for business, like Sang Lee Farms, Wickham’s and Farmer Mike. Farm to table — goodness never tasted so good!

True freedom is the ability to shape reality rather than react to and survive it. Yaacov Cohen asks, “How can we all educate our children to true freedom?” He answers: “Teach them not to look at reality as defining their acts but to look at their acts as defining reality.” Thank God we live in a community that does and teaches just that.
