About 150 people turned out to the Boardy Barn in Hampton Bays on Sunday, July 8, in support of “Kevin O’Shea Day,” a memorial fundraiser. Funds raised from the event will provide scholarship money to high school students in the name of Kevin O’Shea, a former employee of the Boardy Barn who was a teacher. The Meade Brothers band rocked the pit, and supporters enjoyed an all-you-can-eat barbecue out back. New visitors to the barn were given smiley face stickers to wear wherever they wanted.
Lori Hollander will teach one-day jewelry making workshops for sterling silver earrings or pendants on July 16, July 23, July 30, and August 6. Students will design and create their own sterling silver earrings with fabricating and texturing techniques including hammering, piercing, stamping, and more. Each workshop is $60 for members or $72 for non-members, plus an additional $20 materials fee.
