It was good to see Montauk come alive this past summer with concerts on the Green, at Gosman’s Dock, at the Lighthouse and the return of the Arts and Craft fairs and Farmer’s Market in town. Businesses on Main Street and hotels were happy to see the town buzzing with tourist and local residents who helped them to remain open, in spite of the pandemic. Montauk is blessed to have beautiful beaches and nature all around to enjoy. We will miss the snowbirds who have left for warmer climates and look forward for their return in the spring.
Executive Director and temporary Chef Therese Jarmain still manages to cook great homemade, tasting dishes and at the same time, run the center, until a part time cook is hired. Wearing masks and seating at a safe distance, is strictly enforced and is the new normal for the young at heart who are grateful to be able to spend precious time with each other.
September celebrants were Thomas Farr and Iris Schneider who opted for lemon cake to share with their peers, after posing for their picture and were sung to. Happy Birthday Tom and Iris! May you have many more to come.
