The Week of Hope launched on Thursday, July 25, in Southampton Village, outside of Ralph Lauren. Throughout the week, up to 200 local business owners, including Michael Kors, Brooks Brothers, J. Crew, The White Company, the Southampton Arts Center, the Southampton Chamber of Commerce, and Southampton Town Hall have had two-foot-wide yellow statement balloons (environmentally safe and re-usable) placed by their front door to symbolize hope and their commitment to raising awareness of depression and mental health.
On Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25, on the front lawn of the Hampton Bays Historical Society, the Town of Southampton is sponsoring the “Summertime Art and Antiques Fair.” Peruse the vendors and then stop in at the Lyzon Hat Shop Museum to view this season’s exhibits: “New York World’s Fairs Memorabilia from 1939 and 1963”, and “Feathered Hats” created by milliner, Walter King. The HB Historical Society is located at 116 West Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays.
