Flanders Riverside And Northampton Community Notes, March 10

Mar 8, 2011 5:27 PM

I am going to get right to it this week because I am just too excited to contain myself at this point!

Congratulations to Amy Bradstreet and Stephen Douglas Schumejda Jr. on the birth of their beautiful baby boy, Stephen Douglas Schumejda III. Baby Dougie, as he is affectionately called by Mom and Dad, made his arrival on Saturday, March 5, at 9:50 a.m. Born at Southampton Hospital, the big guy was 22 1/4 inches long 
and weighed a healthy 8 pounds and 13 ounces.

Both Mom and Baby Dougie are doing very well and while speaking with Amy on Monday morning, she told me: “I love it. This mom thing is amazing!”

This is the first child for Amy and Steve and all of us around here are looking forward to meeting (and spoiling) Baby Dougie very soon. Anyone wishing to meet the newest Flanders baby will find him at his daddy’s farm stand, Close to Earth Farms, located at the Green Door on Shinnecock Road in Hampton Bays. Congratulations to you all!

Our Local Scholars: Congratulations to the following students from our area for being named to the dean’s list at their respective colleges and universities: Brittany Woodhull of Riverhead (Drew University); Sara Lohneiss of Riverhead (Loyola University); and Devin Cholodenko of Riverhead (SUNY Albany). All received top honors for the fall semester. Your friends and family are proud of you; keep up the great work.

The next meeting of the Flanders Village Historical Society (FVHS) will be held on Thursday, March 10, at 7 p.m., at the David W. Crohan Community Center in Flanders. Topics of discussion will include this year’s co-sponsorship of the Craft Fair and Flea Market with the Friends of the Big Duck. The FVHS is in need of volunteers to help with planning. If you are interested in helping out, please call 727-0593.

On The Hunt: The Friends of the Big Duck and the FVHS are looking for vendors for their annual Craft Fair and Flea Market scheduled for May 21. If you are interested in setting up a booth at the event, please visit bigduck.org or send an e-mail to mudda1@optonline.net and request an application form.

The monthly meeting of Flanders, Riverside, Northampton Community Association will be held on Monday, March 14, at 7 p.m., at the David W. Crohan Community Center on Flanders Road. FRNCA is looking for volunteers to fill vacant seats on the executive board and would like to see some new faces on its board to keep the ideas fresh. Nominations will be taken from the floor at the April meeting. Stop by this month’s meeting to hear from the Peconic BayKeeper Kevin McAllister.

Congratulations to Riverhead Allstate Insurance Agent Elizabeth Hanlon on receiving the agency’s Hands in the Community Award for her commitment to volunteer work in the community. Along with the award comes a $1,000 grant from the Allstate Foundation, which Ms. Hanlon will donate to the Timothy Hill Children’s Ranch in Riverhead. Ms. Hanlon is a volunteer at Timothy Hill and, according to Linda Collora, New York regional sales leader, “She is an active and respected member of the business community as well and makes a point of dedicating her time and efforts to making a difference in people’s lives.”

Thank you, Ms. Hanlon, for all you do.

That’s all for this week. Please keep me posted and I will see you around.
