•  A Greener Southampton  will hold a kick-off event for their “The Solution is in the Bag” anti-plastic bag and pro-recycling campaign this Saturday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to noon at the King Kullen in Bridgehampton and from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Stop & Shop in Hampton Bay. They’ll be having free giveaways, demonstrations and activities.

• The North Fork Animal Welfare League is creating a 2015 Calendar featuring some of their former shelter residents in their new homes. If you would like your adopted pet to be their Pet of the Month, send an email letting them know you’re interested to manager@nfawl.org. They have a professional photographer who will visit your home or your favorite park to take the photos. They’ll continue looking for North Fork pets to feature in the calendar until June 1, 2014, at which time they will hold a drawing to pick their monthly stars.

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