July Birthdays

Our little town of Montauk whose residents have been on lockdown for more than a year due to the pandemic is jumping once again with tourists and locals enjoying our beautiful, perfect, summer weather accompanied with a wonderful ocean breeze.

July birthday babies are volunteer Iris Mitchell, Bill Schmidt, my husband, Cam Pacis and Sharon Sennefelder. Sadly, there will still be no official 4th of July fireworks on Umbrella Beach this year but I am sure Iris, Cam and also Pastor Bill Hoffmann from the Montauk Community Church, will create their own fireworks since they were born on the holiday itself. Happy Birthday and Happy 4th of July. We have a lot to be thankful for.

At the time of this paper’s deadline, the Montauk Senior Nutrition Center, located at the Playhouse, is still closed until further notice. However, I have good news, the Town of East Hampton Human Services in partnership with Stony Brook Southhampton Hospital are co-hosting Healing Circle Classes right outside the door of the center’s dining room temporarily, depending on the weather. The program taught by teacher Margaret includes Flexibility and Balance and is held every Tuesday morning at 10:45am until the last Tuesday of the year, on December 28. Once the Nutrition Center opens for lunch, which I am sure will be soon, the exercises will be moved indoors.

Montauk’s young at heart who are 60 years and over are welcome to join this energetic group and eat a well balanced meal from soup to nuts starting at noon, Monday through Friday. For more info kindly phone Executive Director Therese Jarmain at the center 631-668-1023 or e-mail her at
