Springs Community Notes, December 7

Dec 6, 2011 12:58 PM

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 Springs Presbyterian Church is discounting its poster, “Springs the Way It Was” to $20 unframed, $45 framed. They can be bought at the Corner Store at the One Stop Market.

By the way, the church is continuing with its yoga program. Monday and Thursdays, 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. with Eve Eliot; Tuesday, 7:15 to 8:15 p.m. with Steve Eaton; and Friday, 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. with Jane Umanoff. Bring a mat and a towel. The class cost $15.

At Ashawagh Hall this weekend there will be a holiday craft fair. Everything sold will be handcrafted. There will be jewelry, photos, cloths, hand carved wood and cookies.

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.
