May your Easter and Passover holidays be sunny and happy.
I am psyched! I just enjoyed a great breakfast at East Quogue’s newest sensation: the Beachside Bagel Café. It was hard to make up my mind as there were so many delicious choices: French toast, pancakes, scrambled eggs, omelets and, of course, all flavors of bagels.
So, if you haven’t been there yet, stop by soon and say “hi” to the new owners: Laurie, Nick, Dottie and Jimmy.
A memorial service for former East Quogue resident Lloyd White will be held at the East Quogue United Methodist Church on Saturday, April 14. It starts at 2 p.m.
Congratulations to the new officers and board members of the East Quogue Beautification Committee: Bob Kandell, president; Al Algieri, vice president; Cathy Seelinger, secretary; and Joan Hughes and Isabella Phillips, board members. (I will be serving as treasurer!)

On display during April at the Art Gallery at the Quogue Library will be “A Life in Art,” featuring the paintings of Salvatore Gulla.
