Mattituck-Laurel: Movie night to benefit library; yard sale for Costa Rica-bound students

Last week I wished Shannan Rehm and Kevin Maida a happy life together as they prepared to exchange vows on July 16. The day arrived and it was perfect for a wedding. Shannan was regal in a strapless cream-colored gown that billowed like clouds behind her as she walked down the aisle on her father’s arm . Bridesmaids Melissa Principi, Lyndsey Baker, Devyn Ulmet, Brienne Lademann, Lindsay Lessard and Grace Bishop and matron of honor Heather Bishop (the bride’s sister) looked beautiful in deep lavender. The groomsmen were Joseph Terranova, Kevin Terry, Stephan Bogardus, Michael Wall, Roy Bartel and Christopher Rehm and the best man was Jonathon Bogardus. Flower girls Reilleigh and Sarah Liguori were adorable as they dropped rose petals along the aisle. Congratulations to Adrienne and Chris Rehm and Joe and Pat Maida on the marriage of their children.

Last week, I incorrectly congratulated last year’s Little Miss and Mr. Mattituck for this year’s win. Congratulations should go to 2011 winners Rudy Bruer and Dimitra Pando.
Happy birthday wishes this week go to Maureen Deegan and Katie Bladykas on the 22nd and Sherry Steele on the 23rd.

Looking for a family night out? The Mattituck-Cutchogue Elementary PTA is hosting an outdoor movie night fundraiser on Thursday, Aug. 11, at 7 p.m. at Strawberry Fields in Mattituck. “Rio,” rated G, will be the featured film. Cost is $4 per person; kids 4 and under are free. Bring your own blankets and chairs. Snacks and refreshments will be available for purchase. All proceeds go to PTA-sponsored school programs. Silver and gold level community/business sponsorships are available for $50 and $100, respectively. Email [email protected] with questions or to become an event sponsor or volunteer.

Bev Wowak wants to alert everyone that there will be a book discussion at Mattituck-Laurel Library on Aug. 23 at 4 p.m. of Caleb Carr’s fascinating novel “The Alienist.” This is a great book to talk about and add to your list for this summer’s adult reading club. For more information, drop by the library and ask Bev for details.

While you’re there, don’t forget to join the Friends of the Library. Sign up to give an hour, a day or even just enjoy the trips and events sponsored by this hardworking, enthusiastic organization. Ask the circulation desk.

If yard sales strike your fancy, mark Saturday, July 30, on your calendar. That’s when Mattituck students traveling to Costa Rica next spring will hold a sale on the front lawn at Mattituck High School from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students will be selling their own items to help defray individual expenses, and the entire group will benefit from the sale of items donated to the event. Stop by and show your support.
