Flanders: RHS performs ‘Stage Door’ Dec. 10-12

How are you, friends and neighbors? I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday. We went to Janet and Ken Dickerson’s and had dinner with my husband’s side of the family this year. It was very nice and everything was delicious. I’m very thankful that I have family here on Long Island and don’t need to travel. I’ve never flown on a plane, but from what I hear, flying for the Thanksgiving holiday is a nightmare. Put me, the biggest chicken in the world, on a plane and it’d be even more of a nightmare for the passengers. I guess I’m doing everyone a favor by not flying. You can all thank me later.

The Southampton Youth Bureau would like to thank Teachers Federal Credit Union for donating Thanksgiving dinner baskets to two local families. These donations provided them with a bountiful Thanksgiving dinner that they otherwise would not have had. The Youth Bureau is always hosting fun events for the children of Southampton Town. Visit for more information on events and also the fall leaf-cleanup schedule. Each area has a different schedule so it’s good to know when the trucks will be in your neighborhood.

The Riverhead High School Blue Masques will present the drama “Stage Door” in the Charles Cardona Auditorium at RHS on Friday, Dec. 10, and Saturday, Dec. 11, at 8 p.m. There will also be a matinee on Sunday, Dec. 12, at 2 p.m. The show is directed by Jessica Guadagnino. Tickets are on sale now and at the door. Visit, click on the calendar, then click on the dates for full details.

Well, that is all for this week, folks. It’s been very quiet here. I’d like my phone to ring and my inbox to be stuffed, so if you have any news you’d like to share please get in touch with me. Thanks again for reading this column. Be safe and remember to slow down on our roads.
