East Hampton Town
Human Services Grants
Nonprofit organizations hoping to get grants next year from East Hampton Town for human services projects have until tomorrow to submit an application to the town Human Services Department. The application calls for the submission of a project description and budget, financial data on the organization, and other details. Among the nonprofits given grants in the town’s 2012 budget are the East Hampton Food Pantry, Montauk Youth Association, and Project MOST.
The full impact of where I was standing during the Great Bonac Fireworks show on Saturday night did not really hit me until I saw a photo taken by someone on the tugboat floating right behind us, looking toward the barge loaded with fireworks where, with hard hat and goggles on, earplugs stuffed into my ears, I tipped my head back at virtually a right angle to see the shells exploding right overhead.
St. Luke’s Favorites
Ellen White, formerly the executive chef at the Silver Palate gourmet store in Manhattan, will lead a team of cooks at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in East Hampton on Monday as they prepare frozen, to-go entrees from recipes in a new church cookbook called “Favorites of St. Luke’s.”
Councilwoman Theresa Quigley has been thinking about the problem of illegally overcrowded residences and the possibility of adding to the town code a list of conditions — things like multiple mailboxes or electric meters, or numerous cars registered to persons with different surnames — that would become “presumptive evidence” that too many people are living in a single-family residence.
An electric-vehicle charging station, newly installed at East Hampton Town Hall, will be unveiled at 9 a.m. Friday at an event sponsored by the town board and the Natural Resources Department. The public has been invited.
The station is in front of the police annex at the town hall campus on Pantigo Road. It use will be demonstrated, using electric vehicles provided by Buzz Chew Chevrolet and Tesla Motors, whose representatives will be on hand to answer technical questions.
East Hampton Town will provide trash bags and gloves to volunteers pitching in on Saturday for the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup Day.
Individuals and groups have been invited to collect trash on any beach. Participants will be asked to fill out an Ocean Conservancy data collection form, which the town will provide, to record the type of debris found. The information will be used by the organization to identify debris “hotspots” and issues, raise awareness, and help communities adopt policies that will contribute to cleaner oceans.
A dynamic trio of East End songstresses, Nancy Atlas, Caroline Doctorow, and Inda Eaton, rocked a sold-out Bay Street Theatre on Saturday night for "Way Out East," the East Coast precursor to an upcoming mini-tour out west.
