Last Wednesday, friends of D Moore raised about $18,000 to help her pay for her medical bills. Artists donated their works which were then sold, food was plentiful, the Lone Sharks and Nancy Atlas rocked the crowd and a good time was had by all. The important thing is D is getting better.

The cat is back at the Springs Library after disappearing for a few weeks. He is a come-and-go-as-you-please-kitty-cat, but he was missed.
So as the holidays approach let me remind you of the wonderful publications from the library that would make great gifts: “Accobonac History,” “The General Stores,” “Parsons Blacksmith Shop,” “Bunker Fishing” and my favorite, “Bonac Bites,” a local cookbook.
About 70 Springs School students participated in shadow day. Students observed how a business or organization works such as the East Hampton Police, Springs Pizza, East Hampton Veterinary Group and other organizations.
Did you know that Springs has been around before there was a United States of America? Or even New York State? This is such a great place to live. I’m just saying.
I am still working on the question of which Town of East Hampton department is in charge of the Parsons Blacksmith Shop which is just sitting there. It is a treasure of Springs and should be open to the public.
The Springs Library is still raising money for their playing card project; go see the library ladies to help. The Springs Fire Department still needs volunteers. I wanted to give you the tally of how much money was raised at last Sunday’s “Lights of Love” fundraiser, but it will have to wait till next week.
