Good morning, Westhampton-Hampton Bays neighbors and friends! Let's get this Wednesday started. Living on the East End, the environment is the heartbeat that connects us all. Some fifth graders in Hampton Bays got a visit recently from a representative from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, who gave an interactive lesson. It's in gestures such as these that a lifelong appreciation of the precious place we share is born. Also in the news, we share a post from our friends at Dan's Papers, paying tribute to a Shinnecock elder, who died at 104. These are the most important things happening around town today. Stay safe and warm as we ready for Mother Nature's blustery burst of winter. Until tomorrow. . .
