The Riverhead Fire Department Association held its monthly meeting May 10 at headquarters. It was a special evening for John Kurpetski, who celebrated 50 years of service with the department. He received proclamations from the fire commissioners, Riverhead Town Supervisor Sean Walter, state Sen. Ken LaValle, Gov. Cuomo’s office, Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo and Congressman Lee Zeldin, who also gave him a flag. Washington Engine Co. 2 hosted a dinner for John before the meeting. Guests included his family and brother firefighters. Sean Walter said John was “an example of someone giving back to the community” while another presenter stated that John’s being a police officer — since retired — and firefighter was not without sacrifice. It was a beautiful evening. As a thank-you, John’s wife, Pat, was presented with a floral arrangement.

Happy May, one and all! It really kind of feels like March but I guess it’ll get warm soon. To get you in the mood for spring, Baiting Hollow Congregational Church will hold its annual yard sale Saturday, May 7, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. With 50-plus vendors I’m sure there will be something for everyone. In the event of rain, the event will be held May 14.
