Hello, everyone! Before I start with upcoming events I would like to send a huge thank-you to Pastor Keith Indovino for Hope Day, which was a huge success! It was wonderful to see the neighborhood united, laughing and having a great time. Local resident Lauren Evers Cariello brought her pony, Bam Bam, all dressed up in rainbow colors and flowers.

Hello, everyone!

Ida Crohan celebrated her “happy day” centennial on May 7 (her real birthday is May 8), with a reception hosted by her niece Kathy Konkel, granddaughter Cindee Tooker from Georgia and son Don and wife from Tennessee. Family and friends shared memories and good times. Several certificates of appreciation were presented, as well as a proclamation from Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman. An aerial photo of Ida’s Pond, the 100th named pond in Southampton Town, was presented by Trustee Eric Schultz, as well as a flag flown over the Capitol, compliments of her great-grandson David Zilnicki. Ida is the mother of three, grandmother of nine, great-grandmother of 13 and great-great-grandmother of two. They would like to thank all who attended this special day.
