Notes from Springs, September 8

Sep 7, 2010 6:26 PM

Let’s start with some church information. The Springs Presbyterian Church will continue to hold its 8 a.m. Sunday outdoor service as well as its 10 a.m. service in the church followed by a coffee hour. This Saturday, September 11, the church will host its annual chicken barbecue from 4 to 7 p.m. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased at the Springs General Store or at the church on the day of the dinner. The meal includes half a chicken, corn, potato salad and a dessert. Deliciousness included.

Starting this week, St. Peter’s Chapel will hold a prayer service at 6 p.m. on Saturday night. They have asked me to remind everyone that the chapel is handicapped accessible with plenty of parking, and they love children. After the service, they hold a potluck dinner with dessert. All are welcome. If you come, bring along a donation for the food pantry.

Now for some shameless self promotion: This will be the 21st annual “Vito Sisti Presents” art show at Ashawagh Hall. The opening is Saturday, September 11, from 5 p.m. until I kick everyone out. There will be beer, wine, soft drinks and food. Entertainment will be supplied by the Blue Collar Band. The Bonac Tonic crew will have their spin art booth set up, so bring the kids.

Over the years, the opening has turned into an end-of-summer party for the community, but let’s not forget about the art. There are 25 talented artists participating this year. Some new additions include painters Len Bernard, Mark Perry, Susan Burton and Margaret Weissbach. Sculptor Scott Partlow is also a fine addition to the group. The show is up until September 19, and the hall is open every day from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, call me at my above number or (631) 682-2192.

The Pollock-Krasner House will begin a film series starting on Friday, September 10, at 7 p.m. The films will “look at how East End artists use film and video to explore themes conveyed by visual metaphors.” This week they will show a film by Eunice Golden titled “Blue Bananas and Other Meats.” It will be hosted by historian and art critic Marion Wolberg Weiss. Tickets are $5 at the door.

The Surface Library will be having its opening of In Situ V on Friday, September 10, from 5 to 8 p.m. The opening was postponed due to a family emergency. The show consists of works by gallery owners Bob Bachler and James Kennedy. It is a very cool show. Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday from 1 to 6 p.m. For more information, call (631) 291-9061.

There will be a Springs Advisory Committee meeting on Monday, September 27, at Ashawagh Hall. The meeting starts at 7 p.m., and the main topic of discussion will be the Springs Library. So if you care about this Springs jewel I urge you to attend.

The Springs Farmers Market, held on the grounds of Ashawagh Hall, will be open on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. probably through October. If you want to put in a booth, call Paul Hamilton at (631) 875-9130.

The acoustic jam is still going strong at the Springs General Store every Sunday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. Anyone with or without talent can join in, and there are instruments available. The store also carries a variety of books for sale written by local authors.
