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.
The Suffolk County Historical Society Museum will be transformed into a children’s museum during “Kids Week” from April 24 through April 27.
The museum signage will temporarily be re-interpreted for school-age children, and touch-table educational play stations will be available for hands-on experiences. There will also be the “Historical Play Room,” where children can dress in colonial garb and play with old-world games, toys, and crafts. On Wednesday and Thursday afternoon, there will also be live music featuring historic songs of Long Island.
Admission is $5 per adult and free for children. For more information, call 631-727-2881 ext. 100.
