Hundreds of community members came out to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at the Neighborhood House on Three Mile Harbor Road on May 4. Everyone enjoyed delicious foods, live music, dancing, and even a few piñatas. This event was put on by the East Hampton Democratic Committee, Project MOST, and the many people who cooked and served the afternoon dishes.
The Riverhead Peacemakers will receive the “United for Kindness” award from PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center on May 22.The Riverhead Peacemakers are a fourth grade student-led anti-bullying movement started by Morgan Dunn, now in ninth grade, when she was at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School. The Peacemakers in both schools meet with Shannon Kutner, Riverhead Community Awareness Program’s elementary school social worker, during recess to discuss ways to prevent and reduce bullying in their schools. In January, the students assisted their schools by organizing student and staff participation in the Great Kindness Challenge, as well as other activities.
