Celebrating a wedding anniversary is special but honoring 60 years of marriage is a milestone. Best wishes go to Claire and Barney Harris, who toasted their 60 years together Oct. 1. They were married at Our Lady of Ostrabrama Church and have spent their time in Mattituck raising four daughters and enjoying seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. And just when they think the celebrations are over, Claire will blow out birthday candles on the 15th along with her grandson, Keith Berezny, who will turn 18. Best wishes for many more happy years to come.
Cathie and Tom Dickerson are also celebrating an anniversary this week, on Oct. 9. Congratulations!
There will be a College Fair next Thursday, Oct. 14, 7 to 9 p.m., at Mattituck High School. Everyone is welcome.

The Empty Bowls Project, started in 1990, is an international grassroots effort to end hunger. Mattituck Junior Senior High School students and community members are participating by creating ceramic bowls under the direction of art instructor Jeanne Fallot. Their goal is to complete 200 bowls and use them this winter at a proposed “Souper Supper” soup and bread fundraiser. Proceeds will be donated to the CAST food pantry to help alleviate hunger locally. The effort has produced 125 bowls so far, and additional workshops will be held this fall for interested parents and students. Donations are welcome to help purchase the items needed to make and serve the soup. To attend a workshop or make a donation (checks payable to MHS), contact Lee Harned at [email protected] or Jeanne Fallot at [email protected]
I think Mother Nature has issues. Yesterday I was basking in the sunshine at the Porters football game. Today it’s a balmy 63 degrees at my house. So, yes, I’m counting down the days until the return of summer. I’ve only got 287 days left to wait!

Congratulations and a lifetime of happiness to my nephew Marcus Tooker and his fiancée, Jaclyn Salottolo. Marcus popped the question Labor Day weekend and Jaclyn said, “Yes”!

Congratulations, Jaclyn and Marcus, and welcome to the family, Jaclyn!

The first-ever SHS men’s alumni soccer game held last Saturday was a big success. There were lots of spectators, including many children who came to watch their daddies play.
