For several years Carrie Karabelas-Yudelson and Joan Sullivan, both summer residents, have attended the Montauk Playhouse Community Center’s annual benefit party at the Montauk Lake Club. It was a lovely event, they agreed, but it needed to be jazzed up a bit. So they volunteered to jointly lead the party and plan to wow the guests who attend on Saturday night at its new venue on the Playhouse grounds, where a tent will be set up on the north side of the property.
Since the beginning of summer a wide swath at Gin Beach at the end of East Lake Drive in Montauk has been roped off for a piping plover nest, causing many to wonder why, since no birds or a nest were visible.
Tyler Borsack, an environmental technician for the East Hampton Town Planning Department, said that a nest with four chicks was found by a Suffolk County employee in early June. County land runs adjacent to the town-owned beach and is usually where the nests are established.
