Good Morning!

• The Environmental Protection Agency is looking for public input on some changes to Suffolk County’s laws regarding residential sewage disposal systems. They’re hosting a meeting at the Suffolk County Community College Culinary Arts and Hospitality Center at 20 E. Main Street in Riverhead this Wednesday, March 4, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Prospective attendees must RSVP to Lauren Adkins (adkins.lauren@epa.gov or 513-569-7218) by Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at noon.

• A great crew of East End singer-songwriters is putting together a new album, “One Guitar,” to benefit the Maureen’s Haven homeless shelter network. The Beacon’s full story is online here.

• Spring is really on its way, and that means the annual Josh Levine memorial cocktail party, honoring the farmer who died in a tractor accident at Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett, is just around the corner. Tickets usually go fast, and you can RSVP for the April 12 fundraiser, which raises money for East End school gardens, online here.

Empty Bowls
Empty Bowls

• Speaking of school gardens, this coming Sunday, March 8, the Project MOST enrichment program at the Springs School is hosting their Seventh Annual Empty Bowls benefit for the Springs School Seedlings Project. Attendees will have a chance to sample more than 28 soups from East Hampton chefs from 12 to 3 p.m. at the Amagansett American Legion Hall. Bring your own bowl or borrow one from the school. Admission is $12 for adults, $5 for children 13 and under, and free for children under 5 years old.

• Once you flipped over that calendar to the month of March, there was no avoiding it. It’s time for the parading of the green. Our listings of St. Patrick’s Day events are online here.

• Did you miss your correct dose of news last week? The Beacon’s Week in Review was delivered to inboxes throughout the East End in the wee hours of Sunday morning. Get your own free copy, or help your friends get their own free copy each week by signing up here.

And that’s the way things look at dawn’s light here today.
