A group of young Southold residents also deserve recognition for conducting their own fundraisers to benefit the North Fork Animal Welfare League: Fiona and Siobhan Merrill along with Meg and Molly Tuthill raised money at a yard sale recently. Special thanks to Noah Berry and Jack Goscinski for their help in running the lemonade stand.
