Despite the frigid weather, 450 brave souls (runners) participated in Montauk’s 42nd Annual “Turkey Trot Run for Fun” on Thanksgiving morning. East Hampton Town Superintendent of Recreation John Rooney and his crew supervised the three and six-mile runs around Fort Pond. All proceeds from the race, and all donations, benefited The Montauk Food Pantry, The East Hampton Food Pantry, The Springs Food Pantry, and Meals on Wheels. Race co-founder John Keeshan attended.
L&W Market in Bridgehampton is holding a coat drive. Through December 31, L&W Market will be collecting lightly used or new coats, which will be donated to those in need on the East End through the local organization Maureen’s Haven. As a thank you for donating, L&W will offer a free cup of coffee to those donating coats.
