The first-ever spelling bee was held at the Jamesport Meeting House on May 23 and it was a smashing success.

Nearly two dozen people of all ages took part in the competition, which will benefit the upkeep and restoration of the historic Meeting House.

Sarah Bowe took home the trophy for first place, followed by Beth Motschenbacher in second and Carol Cryzwinski in third.

For the third year in a row, Riverhead Move the Animal Shelter rolled out motorcycles and classic cars in town to raise funds for a new animal shelter.

After being held downtown by the Peconic River last year and at Calverton Links the previous year, Hogs & Hot Rods Rock the Shelter fundraiser was held in the Splish Splash parking lot in Calverton Sunday afternoon.

Sponsored by Splish Splash to benefit the nonprofit started by Denise Lucas, the festival featured a car and motorcycle show, vendors, and live music.

Ms. Lucas started her effort to move the Riverhead Town Animal Shelter in September 2011.
