Sag Harbor Notes

Community events and milestones

    The public has been invited to the Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce’s “bag lunch” series — casual networking lunches with guest speakers on Fridays from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at various businesses in the village. Attendees have been asked to take along their own lunches and leave “no footprint behind.”
    The series starts on Friday, April 13, at Phao Thai Kitchen with Bonnie Grice discussing “Connecting With Your Community: Public Radio Speaks to All.” On April 20 at Sen restaurant, Linda Miller, Jim Durning, and Matthew Iscoe give a talk called “Expand Your Business: Leveraging Free Digital Media.” On April 27 at the Bay Street Theatre, Robbie Vorhaus will speak about “Creating, Building, and Sustaining Your Personal Brand.”
    The events are free for current chamber members. The suggested donation for nonmembers is $25.

    The Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce’s Easter Bonnet Parade starts on Saturday at 1 p.m. in front of Book­Hampton. Those wearing a fancy or creative Easter bonnet have been invited to parade down the Main Street sidewalk to the Sag Harbor Garden Center on Spring Street, where prizes from the Sag Harbor Variety Store will be awarded. Pets can make the walk, too.
    A petting zoo will be open at the garden center on that day from noon to 2 p.m. Children can meet animals from the Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Suffolk County farm. Students will be on hand selling hot dogs and beverages to raise money to repair the windmill on Long Wharf.

    The Old Whalers Church will celebrate Easter Sunday at 6:30 a.m., “as the sun rises and a new day begins.” The service will take place in Marine Park or, in the event of bad weather, in the chapel. From 7 to 10, a continental breakfast celebration in the social hall will include spring flowers and organ, choir, and bell choir music. There will be a 10 a.m. service, as well, followed by 11 a.m. fellowship.

    The Community Bible Church on Noyac Road in Noyac will have an Easter service on Sunday at 10 a.m. The church has also sent word that on Friday, April 13, Gayle Erwin, whose books include “The Jesus Style,” will be the guest speaker at 7 p.m.
    The CBC Praise Band performs worship music on Sundays, and Pastor Doug Kinney leads Bible study. The church offers nursery care for infants through age 4, and “junior church” for children 5 and older.
    Brazilian fellowship for all ages takes place on Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., with music by the Brazilian Praise Band. Bible study is offered by Pastor Eliel Assis.­
