Calverton: Riley Avenue food drive a big success

The Thanksgiving food drive at Riley Avenue Elementary School was a tremendous success! Many items were donated and will be put into baskets for local needy families. Thanks to those who helped out. Also, the school wishes to thank Diana from Windy Acres Farm for donating fresh veggies to this wonderful cause.

Kindergarten students were busy visiting Riverhead Free Library this past week. Second-graders were busy at the Southold Indian Museum, where they learned a great deal about Native Americans. Parents enjoyed a Thanksgiving play presented by Mrs. Stears and her students last week. All had a great time. Mrs. Kent and Mrs. Messina’s classes enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving feast, complete with turkey and all the trimmings. Remember, school is closed until Monday, Nov. 29. Enjoy!

Baiting Hollow Congregational Church will be holding a “greens” sale on Saturday, Dec. 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church on Sound Avenue. Available for purchase will be fresh evergreens and wreaths, table decorations, baskets and many items at its white elephant table. Do stop by and get yourself some nice fresh greens for the Christmas season.

A very happy, wonderful Thanksgiving to each of you. May your day be filled with happiness, good company, food and football (GO JETS!). Please phone or visit someone who would love to have a little company. ‘Tis the season for giving and it takes so little to make someone feel special.

Take care, be safe, and I shall talk to you next week. Bye.
