Looking Ahead to the M.L.K. Weekend

The holidays may be over, but next weekend, many will enjoy a three-day break as we remember the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday. Two important fund-raisers will be held on the South Fork that weekend, so mark your calendars now. 

Mariann Megna will headline a benefit for Maureen’s Haven, a homeless-outreach and shelter program, at the Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse, 977 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike, on Friday, Jan. 13, at 8 p.m. She will be joined by Klyph Black, James Benard, and Michael LeClerc in a performance of songs from Ms. Megna’s new album, “Sunlight Chant,” live for the first time. The cost is $15 at the door.

Looking ahead, the Kiwanis Club of East Hampton will hold its Winter Jam on Jan. 14 from 8 p.m. to midnight at the American Legion Hall, on the corner of Montauk Highway and Abraham’s Path in Amagansett. The evening will include free food and beer, raffles and auctions, and music by Joe Delia and Thieves. Tickets, which cost $25, will be available at the door. They are available in advance at Brent’s General Store, Village Hardware in East Hampton, Uihlein’s Marina in Montauk, and through members of the Kiwanis.
