The first hint of spring…

Good Morning!

• The East Hampton Anti-Bias Task Force will host the first of two film events for the community this Friday, Feb. 27 at LTV Studios at 7 p.m., when they will present the Academy Award-winning documentary “Mighty Times: The Children’s March.” The film tells the story of the young people of Birmingham, Alabama who braved arrest, fire hoses, and police dogs in 1963 to march for justice during the Civil Rights Movement. More information is online here.

• In a small hotel room high above Wichita, Kansas, conflicting ideas about character, salesmanship, honesty, religion, and love simmer until they boil over as two experienced salesmen and a young research engineer await a CEO whose visit to their modest hospitality suite could save their company from ruin. This is the premise behind “Hospitality Suite,” a new play offered up for a free staged reading at Guild Hall in East Hampton tonight. More information is online here.

• The state DEC and the Peconic Estuary Program are hosting a training session for alewife monitors to search the creeks and streams of Long Island this spring to find migratory alewifes.
