Waiting for the Races to Begin, Riverhead

Good Morning!

• This is a big week for news on the lifesaving station front. East Hampton Town is planning a flag-raising ceremony for the Amagansett Lifesaving Station at Atlantic Avenue Beach, which is being renovated after it was moved to its original site more than half a decade ago. The ceremony will be held on May 3 at noon. Meanwhile, over in Hampton Bays, Southampton Town took title in March to the former Tiana Lifesaving Station, which was the second lifesaving station in the country manned by an African-American crew. The Beacon’s full story on the Tiana station is online here.

• A bunch of folks up in Southold would really like the town to do something to shorten the jetty at Goldsmith Inlet. They’ve been asking for years, but they may finally be making progress. The Beacon’s full story is online here.

• Today is the North Fork Horseradish Festival at Hallockville Museum Farm. Celebrate everything horseradish with a bunch of people who love the spicy root as much as you. More information is online here.

• There are a whole bunch of openings at art galleries throughout the East End this weekend. Our listings are online here.

• Now’s a perfect time to get out in the natural world on the East End. From hikes to nature programs, all the information you need is online in The Beacon’s Event Calendar.

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