A full weekend of activities will commemorate Memorial Day in Montauk, starting on Saturday with a veteran’s fish and chips dinner at the Montauk Coast Guard Station on Star Island.
The Montauk Memorial Committee has dedicated the weekend as one of remembrance in honor of all veterans, and has worked through the winter to make the event respectful and fitting to the occasion.
If last weekend was any indication we’re going to have to set some ground rules here for the summer. The Montauk Music Festival brought a large crowd to the hamlet and it reminded me of summers past and the things that people do that I don’t like.
At St. Therese
A family Christmas concert will be held at St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Church on Sunday at 5 p.m. The adult and children’s choir will be singing holiday tunes, some solo. The audience will be invited to join a sing-along of traditional carols.
Christmas Eve services will be held at 4:30 p.m. and midnight at St. Therese, and in Spanish at 7 p.m. On Christmas Day, Masses will be celebrated at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.
A good-sized crowd turned out to support Rob Astorino, the Westchester County executive who is running for governor on the Republican and Conservative lines, at East by Northeast restaurant in Montauk on Thursday evening.
Mr. Astorino, a former radio producer who lives in Mount Pleasant, N.Y., is making a bid against Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a Democrat, in November. He announced his candidacy in March, and accepted the Republican nomination in May. He is in his second term as Westchester County executive.
