The East Hampton Town Chiefs Association hosted a memorial on the Green at Hook Mill in East Hampton Village on September 11. East Hampton Village Mayor Paul Rickenbach, with representatives from the East Hampton Village Board and the East Hampton Town Board, attended to honor those who perished in the attacks on 9/11. Chiefs Association President (and East Hampton Fire Department Chief) Gerry Turza made the first remarks. The Very Reverend Denis Brunelle of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church gave the blessings. Police and firefighters from Bridgehampton to Montauk placed wreaths in formation. Village Code Enforcement’s Kenneth Collum set the mood with his solo bagpipe playing.
There will be a public sale of the works of artist Beryl Bernay-Kossovskaya on Friday, July 19, and Saturday, July 20, from 10 AM to 4 PM at 18 Neck Path in East Hampton. Many of the diverse selection of paintings and photographs by the long-time Springs resident were inspired by her United Nations foreign correspondent assignments. Other works reflect her love of the area’s light and ambience, while some included pen-and-ink sketches of Paris, New York City, and her 1940s fashion designs.
