Talk about cooking for a crowd! Thanks to the Greenport Fire Department for generously providing 80 gallons of Manhattan clam chowder, hot dogs and beverages for everyone who came to the Washington’s Birthday Parade last Saturday. It was cold and windy outside, but the chowder was hot and much appreciated.
A lot of hard work has gone into the Southold High School junior class fundraiser, which will take place Friday, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m. in the district auditorium. Music by the Long Island band GRECO will be featured as well as a musical talent showcase with student performers. Proceeds will help defray the costs of this year’s prom.

Editor’s note: In last week’s Southold-Peconic column, we incorrectly changed the name of the annual Washington’s Birthday Parade in Greenport to Presidents Day Parade. We apologize to Ms. Byrnes, who had it right.
