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.
