To prepare for the opening of Southold Town’s five swim-friendly beaches on June 28, the town’s department of public works is smoothing out sand and cleaning up the shoreline by picking up debris — particularly on Soundfront beaches, which were damaged during the winter.

The Town Board allocated more than $6,000 for beach grading to help in those efforts.

Cutchogue East Elementary School celebrated the last day of school with a party at the beach in New Suffolk.

Students, teachers, staff and parents gathered at the bay to say goodbye to school and hello to summer. Students played games, hunted for sea creatures and splashed in the water.
