Our Fridays on the Porch start this coming Friday July 10th. As always, Fridays on the Porch are an informal series with refreshments and a brief program. They are open to the public, and we do not charge admission, although a small donation is greatly appreciated to help offset the costs of hosting the event. All of the “Fridays on the Porch” events take place at 5 pm at the Annie Cooper Boyd House.
Our first program will involve an exhibit of some of the paintings Whitney Hansen painted that are in the new book she and Alex Eames co-authored, Oh, That’s Another Story! Some of the people whose stories are in Alex and Whitney’s book will be present as well.
Our second speaker will be Mark Cappellino, Stormwater Educator from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County Marine Program. Mark will speak to us about how we can help preserve Sag Harbor’s waterfront.
The August Fridays will start out with a program from Bryan Boyhan, editor emertius of the Sag Harbor Express. Bryan will be speaking about on August 7th about some treasures from past issues of the Express connected to our mini-exhibit on Sag Harbor’s favorite badboy poet, George Sterling.
We’ll wrap up on August 21st this year with the popular returning “Show and Tell” program. We encourage you to think about a historic object to bring and share with the group, either asking questions you would like answers to about the object or telling a story about the item.
