Flanders: Southampton Town hosts audition for teen television news

Last weekend’s weather was absolutely breathtaking, wasn’t it? During the day it was hard to believe it was November, but once the sun went down (really early, which is a bummer) all of a sudden it was November again. I think I could handle a winter just like this, with snow only on Christmas and New Year’s Eve. We’ll see if Mother Nature grants my wish this year.
Southampton Town is offering a great opportunity for teens. Auditions and interviews for a new local teen television news program will be held Monday, Nov. 29, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hampton Bays Community Center, 25 Ponquogue Ave., open to any Southampton Town high school-age resident who is interested in being an on-air spokesperson, writer, editor, or director. Monthly shows will be aired on SEA-TV, Channel 22. The project is sponsored by the Southampton Youth Board. Teen participants will make decisions about content, programming, and format, providing information for teens on what’s happening in the area including activities, events, and programs, and how to participate; where to go for services; what’s happening at local schools; and local government issues and actions that affect teens. For more information call Nancy Lynott at 702-2417 or visit and click on “What’s Happening.”
Tomorrow, Friday, Nov. 19, the David W. Crohan Community Center will be hosting a Thanksgiving dinner/birthday party for all those senior citizens who share a birthday in November. The meal costs $3. Those who wish to attend may call Ruth at 702-2375 to ensure there will be enough food for everyone.
The Senior Center is always looking for more people from the Flanders area to take part in the many programs they offer, including free exercise classes, line dancing and computer classes. They also have a pool table and a well-stocked library. There are no return dates/late fees on books, just read and return them at your leisure. In other words, don’t stay home! Come to lunch every day or just every so often. Transportation is available. Call 702-2375 for more information.
Happy 7th birthday to Chase Wanat, who celebrates on Nov. 21, from your mom and dad, Tracy and John Wanat. Hope you have a spectacular day. And to John on Nov. 24, from your wife and son and all your family and friends. And get-well wishes to Vici, Cissy and Jane Wanat from your friends and family; positive healing thoughts are coming your way.
Greetings to Betsy in Jamesport, Ms. Charlotte Nelson in Riverside and Ms. Karen Myers in Riverhead. I hope you are all doing well and having a wonderful day today!
Thanks to everyone who calls in, drops off or e-mails me with news. I cannot do this without everyone’s help and it is very much appreciated. The News-Review is closed next Thursday, Nov. 25, for Thanksgiving, so my column has to be in early. It’s due tomorrow actually. If you have any news you want me to mention please call or e-mail me by tonight.
Have a great weekend and cross your fingers that it’s just as gorgeous as the last. Take care and please drive safely.
