Community News, July 20: What's Happening In Your Neighborhood

Jul 17, 2017 3:33 PM

Crossing the finish line at the 22nd annual Lighthouse Triathlon on Sunday was extra special for two people. Sweaty but smiling, David Krol and Joanne Santorelli Krol, ran through the finish, kissed and hugged, just moments after the announcer said they were celebrating 10 years of marriage. What made it unique for the two of them is that they got married 10 years ago, following the completion of that same race, under the lighthouse, overlooking the Atlantic. They’ve done the race every year since.

Sunday’s race was a fundraiser for the Montauk Lighthouse Museum, which also announced an upcoming music festival to take place in September in the lighthouse amphitheater.

You may see a group of patriotic cyclists on Saturday, rolling through Amagansett, East Hampton and Sag Harbor. That’s the annual Soldier Ride for the Wounded Warrior Project.

The bike ride, which has 25- or 60-mile routes, will start at the Amagansett Farm and head west to East Hampton and then on to Sag Harbor and a turn-around loop in North Haven. The shorter ride will end at the start, but the longer route continues on to Montauk Point and then loops back to the start. Finishers can enjoy a barbecue and more.

Also that day will be the Soldier Ride Community Walk in Sag Harbor. For details about both events, go to woundedwarriorproject.org.

Next Wednesday at 11 a.m., the John L. Behan Port Security Vessel for Montauk Harbor will be commissioned at the U.S. Coast Guard Station in Montauk. The public is invited. The port security vessel with firefighting capabilities will be homeported in Montauk Harbor. Its purpose will be to assist the U.S. Coast Guard with its Homeland Security mission, thereby making Montauk a more resilient port, and to provide fire protection in Montauk Harbor. A federal grant will cover $450,000, or 75 percent, of the approximately $600,000 cost of the project, with the town contributing $150,000, or 25 percent.

Mr. Behan is a Montauk resident and decorated Vietnam veteran. He served as the director of New York State’s Division of Veterans’ Affairs, as a New York State Assemblyman, and as the East Hampton Town Assessor.

So on to the news in the community:

East Hampton

Alexandra Perez, who recently graduated from East Hampton High School, was awarded the ninth annual South Fork Natural History Museum scholarship, supported by Bridgehampton National Bank. The South Fork Natural History Museum’s mission is to stimulate interest in, advance knowledge of, and foster appreciation for the natural environment with special emphasis on the unique natural history of Long Island’s South Fork. The $1,000 scholarship was presented to Alexandra at the museum’s annual benefit.

Alexandra is passionate about the study of biology and has demonstrated her interests in the environment through her involvement at SoFo. Last winter and spring Alexandra worked at an Enrichment Bilingual Program at SoFo, with the help of grants made from the All for the East End (AFTEE) fund, at the Long Island Community Foundation (LICF) and an anonymous organization. As a result of her dedicated participation, the program helped ensure that Latino and Hispanic families in the community are able to experience all that the SoFo museum has to offer. In addition, families are given the ability to learn about the fragile ecosystems of Long Island. Alexandra will be attending Brown University this fall to pursue her studies and work in biology.

In order to be considered for the SoFo Scholarship, students must meet specific guidelines: “The award is given each year to a student who has exhibited outstanding scholarship in the sciences on the high school level, has been accepted to a college or university, and wishes to pursue undergraduate work in the field of Environmental Science. SoFo hopes the elected student will have an impact on the understanding and well-being of the natural environment as a result of their college studies.” Congratulations, Alexandra!

Bill Becker, also a founder in addition to Greg Donohue, continues to work the garden. Volunteers work the soil and sell what is grown on Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., donating the net proceeds to the Montauk Food Pantry and Meals on Wheels, the most recent donation being $27,000!

Southampton

The Firemen’s Association of the State of New York has awarded the 2017 FASNY Gerard J. Buckenmeyer Volunteer Scholarship to Nicolas Westerhoff of Southampton. Nicolas received a certificate and scholarship of $1,500 for his volunteer service in the community from Eugene Perry, member of the FASNY Board of Directors.

“I joined the fire department after my brother encouraged me to, and because I thought it would be a great way to give back to my community,” said Nicolas. “I also hoped it would help teach me critical leadership skills, and be a great learning experience.”

Nicolas will be attending Boston University this fall to study biochemistry. After earning his degree, he plans to attend medical school with the goal of becoming a pediatrician.

Outside of the fire department, Nicolas is a member of the Boy Scouts of America, Southampton Troop 58; the Southampton First Presbyterian Youth Group; and the Rotary Interact Club.

He is one of 20 students in New York State chosen for this scholarship.

“This scholarship means a lot to me and my family. I hope it will inspire other students in my area to apply for it,” said Nicolas.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of an applicant’s volunteer service to his or her community, such as serving with a local fire department, scouting, church, school, work with senior citizens, fire prevention, and other projects. Additional criteria include consistent demonstration of good character and completion of a written essay.

Quogue

The work of artist Mark Perry will be on display at The Art Gallery at the Quogue Library through August 6. Mr. Perry, who divides his time between New York City and East Hampton, studied portraiture and life drawing at the Rhode Island School of Design. He began exhibiting in Providence and later moved to New York City to continue his studies at the Society of Illustrators and the Spring Street Studio. He began to visit Amagansett regularly, and at the same time moved from figurative work to what became his passion: the landscape. The artist describes his process as fluid and says that “the challenge when making abstract work is keeping an open mind when imagery and thoughts constantly swirl through the brain.”

Mr. Perry says that one of his current themes is the perception of time and what it means to an artist in middle age. “Is it possible to see and to paint with a heightened sense of discovery? Does experience give depth or limit my ability to engage fully, and without judgment?” He is a member of the Artists Alliance of East Hampton and, for years, was part of the AAEH annual studio tour. His paintings have been in solo and group shows and art fairs in NYC, Houston and East Hampton, and featured in sets for a major motion picture.

Judy McDermott and Liz Plate chaired this show for the library. For more information, go to quoguelibrary.org.
