A funny coincidence brought Marcus Mumford and Kirsty McGaul and the tandem bike they had ridden from Boston to the Ladies Village Improvement Society’s headquarters in East Hampton on April 23.
I grew up in Manhattan. I traveled to school on a school bus and when I was old enough I used my school bus pass to take the regular public buses. The uptown buses often let you out right onto subway grates. Not a problem, we wore school uniforms . . . with bloomers. No kidding.
Last weekend offered a variety of events, from big-name outside organizations to those near and dear, like Southampton Hospital, the East Hampton Historical Society, the Amagansett Historical Association, the Peconic Land Trust, and others.
As the East Hampton Ladies Village Improvement Society celebrated 120 years of service to the community, its popular fair on Saturday went off without a hitch.
When the doors opened at 10 a.m., people rushed to their favorite booths, kids for the games, rides, and the carousel, adults for the flowers or vintage clothing, perhaps the food or the furniture.
