  • Sag Harbor artist Dorothy Frankel has donated her “Circle of Hope” sculpture to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital for display in the hospital’s Garden of Hope. The sculpture was installed in the Garden on July 27. “Circle of Hope” is part of Ms. Frankel’s series “Circles,” inspired by the Zen Buddhist symbol enso, which denotes connectedness, enlightenment, elegance, and the cyclical nature of life. The piece, crafted in 2005 from terra cotta and steel materials, was specifically designed to remind people of their earthly roots and dizzying aspirations—those that thrust us beyond our comfort zones to seek collective truths and a unity with our surroundings. The Garden of Hope, located on the grounds of the Hospital at the corner of Herrick and Old Town Roads, was established twenty years ago and through the years has been a beautiful, peaceful space for cancer patients and survivors, as well as for members of the community, to visit. “Having a background in preventative health, I was drawn to adding something to the Hospital setting where one can reflect upon the profound joys and dilemmas we face in life,” Ms. Frankel said. “’Circle of Hope has a serene, meditative, hopeful quality. The Garden of Hope is a place where patients, staff and friends can walk and sit—where they can contemplate health, illness, spirituality while seeking hope and health. In my mind, it was a natural.” “We’re extremely grateful to Ms. Frankel for her thoughtful gift to our Garden of Hope,” said Robert S. Chaloner, Chief Administrative Officer. “The sculpture has enhanced the look of the space and has added a new sense of tranquility that all of the Garden’s visitors can enjoy.”<br/><span style='font-style:italic'>Submitted Aug 11</span>

  • Boy Scouts from Troop 58 of Southampton returned home recently from a week at Resica Falls Scout Reservation. While there, they conducted an honorable flag retirement ceremony. Boy Scouts are one of a few organizations permitted to hold a retirement ceremony. The Scouts properly prepared the dozens of flags that had been previously collected from the Southampton Elks Lodge receptacle, built by one of our Eagle Scouts. They then held a vigil around the campfire still working together in silence taking turns retiring each and every Old Glory. They remained silent and reverent through the last flag.<br/><span style='font-style:italic'>Submitted Aug 3</span>

On July 25, hospital officials, staff, and friends and family of Mrs. Lord gathered at the facility in Hampton Bays to officially introduce the Barbara H. Lord Regional Dialysis Center. Mrs. Lord, who died in 2016, established the J.
