Wading River Historical Society will host a presentation, Thursday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m. about a diary written in 1854 by Wading River teenager Kate Dayton. When she was just 15, Kate wrote about what life was like at the time. Stephanie and Sid Bail will discuss the insights her diary provides about the hamlet as it was nearly two centuries ago. A slideshow based on the diary will also be presented. For more information, call 631-929-4082.
