Looking Ahead: Therapeutic Riding and a Car Show for Veterans

Got the Monday blues? Already looking forward to the weekend? Here are some items to put on your calendar in advance. 

On Friday, the Center for Therapeutic Riding of the East End, which offers lessons and equine-assisted activities, will have an open house at Wolffer Estate Stables on Narrow Lane in Sagaponack from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

The evening will include riding demonstrations, and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and talk about CTREE programs. Light refreshments will be served.  

Reservations are being taken at the East Hampton Library for the season’s first Tom Twomey Series lecture. On Saturday at 6 p.m., Colleen Henn, the Eastern Long Island Surfrider Foundation chapter director, Stephen Mahoney of Mahoney Farm and Nursery, and Tony Piazza of Piazza Horticultural will talk about the “bioswale” water-quality project on the East Hampton Village Green and plans for a similar effort behind the Methodist Church. Both Town Pond and the North Main Street area are part of the Hook Pond watershed.

A car show to benefit veterans in need on the East End will take place on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the grounds of the American Legion Hall in Amagansett. Vehicles of all types, including antiques, classics, muscle cars, trucks, hot rods, and motorcycles, will be welcomed.

The $20 entry fee for a show car and driver includes a T-shirt. Entry for passengers and walk-in guests is $5, or $2 for children 12 and under. T-shirts will also be available for purchase, and food and refreshments will be served. The gate opens at 8 a.m.
