Next an update about all of the exciting happenings that will be taking place on East Quogue Day—Saturday, July 11.

The members of our East Quogue Historical Society are planning a very special walking tour for our hamlet’s part in the upcoming celebration of the 375th anniversary of Southampton Town. The interesting and informative tour will feature some of the oldest homes and buildings in our hamlet. So, don’t forget to mark your iCalendars for the big day!

Switching gears for a moment, I’d like to note that the awesome emails about the accomplishments of our amazing East Quogue scholars just keep rolling in.
