Quogue Community Notes, October 1

Sep 29, 2015 10:48 AM

Members and supporters of the Quogue Historical Society—and who doesn’t fall into one of these two categories?—are reminded that the society’s annual meeting will be held this year on Saturday, October 3, at 11 a.m. at the Pond House at 114 Jessup Avenue.

At the meeting, the board of directors will review the society’s activities for the past year and offer an update on current projects.

A compelling lecture is scheduled at the Quogue Library this weekend, when Rev. Dr. James E. Atwood will speak about “America’s Fascination and Trust in Violence” on Sunday, October 4, at 3 p.m.

Rev. Atwood has been an advocate for gun violence prevention since 1974, when a member of his congregation was shot and killed by a teenager who had been given a Saturday Night Special by a friend so that he could “go and get some money.”

He is currently a member of the board of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and in 2012 published “America and Its Guns: A Theological Expose.”

Attention all pet owners and animal lovers: St. Mark’s Church in Westhampton Beach will be hosting a Blessing of the Pets on Sunday, October 4, at 4 p.m. on the church lawn.

As a key part of this annual animal-centric event, the church will be taking up a collection of toys, food, blankets and towels for the Southampton Town Animal Shelter. For more information, call the church office at 288-2111.

One more community information meeting about the proposed “The Hills” project coming up. On Tuesday, October 6, at Cucina in East Quogue, the developer will show the detailed plan for the golf course, single family homes, clubhouse with condominiums, and dedicated open space that, taken together, comprise the basic elements of the project.

On hand to answer questions will be an environmental planner, a groundwater expert, a bay water expert, golf course superintendent and the developer. To reserve a spot at this meeting, email info@TheHillsEQ.com or call Jessica at (917) 693-9406.

The Eastern Long Island Audubon Society (ELIAS) will host a nature walk and hawk watch at Robert Moses State Park on Saturday, October 3, led by Eileen Schwinn. All are welcome to meet Ms. Schwinn at 8 a.m. at the eastern parking lot (Lot 5) of Robert Moses State Park.

The group will walk to the observation platform in hopes of seeing various species of hawks and raptors as they follow the winds along the coastline. Other migrating passerines can also be found along the barrier beach.

There will also be stops at other parking lots within the State Park. There is a $10 charge per car at the park, good at all the parking lots, and Empire Pass is also honored. All those interested in carpooling to the location are requested to contact Eileen Schwinn at beachmed@optonline.net.

On Monday, October 5, at 7:15 p.m. ELIAS will be holding a “Members Night!” talent show at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge, organized by Bob Adamo.

Members and friends have been asked to participate and share their talents: from photos, arts and crafts and poetry to storytelling, readings, vacation experiences, or what Mr. Adamo refers to as “just plain whatever.” While the deadline for signing up was one week before the event, it might still be possible to get on the bill by contacting the impresario at radamo4691@gmail.com or by calling either his cell, 631-905-7360, or his landline, (631) 369-1958.

Of course, even if you can’t share a talent, all are welcome to be in the audience at this free presentation in the QWR Nature Center. Mr. Adamo will be the final presenter, offering a PowerPoint on a trip he took to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji in 2005.

Coming up on Friday, October 9, in the Quogue Library’s popular matinee screening series will be “Still Alice” (2014), starring Julianne Moore in the title role, showing at 2 p.m.

Ms. Moore, who won the Oscar for Best Actress for her work in this film, plays a linguistics professor diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s who struggles to stay connected to her family and identity.

For the month of October, the Art Gallery at the Quogue Library will mount an exhibition of oil paintings and works on paper by East Hampton artist Anne Raymond, one of her last shows in this region prior to her move back to her hometown of Austin, Texas, later this year.

The Hudsy 5K Run/Walk and Fun Run (for kids), sponsored by the Quogue School Heart Links Project and honoring the late Joan Hudson, will step off this year at 9 a.m. on Saturday, October 10, in front of the Quogue School on Edgewood Road. The Fun Run for the small fry starts immediately after the 5K finish.

To obtain a registration form or for more information, visit the school website at www.quogueschool.com or call the school at 653-4285.

The next get-together of the Quogue Library Fiction Book discussion group will be held on Sunday, October 11, at 12:15 p.m. The book under discussion will be “Desperate Characters” by Paula Fox, and copies are available now at the Circulation Desk.

All who plan to attend are urged to communicate their intentions by calling 653-4224, ext. 101.

Community information on "The Hills" in EQ? How about information provided by the paid advisors of the "Discovery Land Company." This same developer did not invite elected SHT officials. I wonder why? Presented are "the facts" according to the developer.

BTW, those of you who attend this "informational meeting" will receive a complimentary dinner and drinks paid for by "The Discovery Land Company.

Some of us who live in the EQ community can't be bought or bullied!!!
