The Springs Presbyterian Church is pushing its poster “Springs the Way It Was” as a nice holiday gift. The poster sells for $35 framed and $15 unframed. It can be purchased at The Corner Store at One Stop Market plaza or at the church. Call 324-4791 for more information.
As the holidays come around let’s not forget those of us who are in need. The Springs Food Pantry has plenty of turkeys and chickens but still would like donations of non-perishable food items. They also request donations of hats and gloves. And don’t forget to put a little something in one of the many Toys for Tots boxes placed around town.
I know times are hard but that won’t stop me from asking for donations for a few more organizations. Help build the Pussy Pond Bridge. You can make a donation by sending a check payable to EHTPS to P.O. Box 1784 East Hampton, NY 11937 or go to www.pussyspondbridge.org to pay with a credit card.
The Springs Improvement Society is still trying to pay off its construction loan. To help pay down that balance, send a check to P.O. Box 537 East Hampton NY 11937. It should be made payable to SIS.
Project Most is also looking for support since its funding has been reduced. They help our kids by providing a safe place to be after school and working on fun things such as the greenhouse project. Call 646-345-5608 for more information.
The third Springs School Film Festival is planned for December 19 with four films created by students in second to fifth grade. One film is titled “How Do You Make People Laugh” written by Corrina Castillo and Faith Fenelon.
The Springs Teachers Association is conducting a coat, hat, scarf and anything to help people stay warm this winter drive. There is a drop off box at the school entrance.
I am still working on getting the Parsons Blacksmith Shop open to the community once in a while. The Springs Library is still raising money for its cool playing card project featuring a deck of cards with photos of historic people and places of Springs.
There will be “Love and Passion” at Ashawagh Hall in February. The seventh annual art show is looking for artists to submit their works. Call Karyn Mannix at 516-318-0000 for more information.
