If you haven’t visited Jamesport Meeting House’s website in a while, you should check it out (jamesportmeetinghouse.org). The updated website is really quite lovely and user-friendly.

June is sneaking up very quickly and pretty soon there will be graduations, moving-up ceremonies and fun-in-the-sun festivities — fairs, carnivals, picnics, etc. I love summertime, especially on Long Island.

It feels so good to be warm again, doesn’t it? Leaving the bedroom window open at night and not having a frozen nose when you wake up in the morning is such a joy.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day. If you’re fortunate to still have your mom in your life make sure to appreciate her every day.
