Southold-Peconic: Indian Museum to offer year-round craft classes

Some members of the Southold Fire Department had the honor and privilege of participating in last Sunday’s Tunnel to Towers 5K run in New York City. They ran in their turnout gear in memory of FDNY firefighter Stephen Siller. It was an emotional and uplifting day that made everyone involved proud to be an American.

A very happy anniversary to Buzzy and Iris Begora, who toasted 50 years of marriage on Sept. 17, and Keith and Barbara Radich, who celebrate their 25th on Oct. 2.

Cell Phones for Soldiers provided another 100 calling cards for soldiers and military families this summer, thanks to all who donated their castoffs. The red donation boxes will remain in the Southold post office so please contribute your old cell phone. It really does go a long way in helping the families stay in touch.

A big thank-you to Evelyn DeLuna for her years of dedication to the Southold School District. We wish her the best in her retirement.
