How quickly time flies! Spring is here. The daffodils and skunk cabbage are popping up. Daylight savings time has ended, days are warmer, masks are no longer required, and positivity rates are dropping like May Flies. Looks like it will be a great spring!
It's hard to believe that we are entering our 25th year as the Friends of Connetquot. Please enjoy reading our inaugural Newsletter cover story in this newsletter. Since our inception, we’ve done amazing things to help with the preservation of this landmark. Here’s just a few of our accomplishments:
Since our last Newsletter, we received two grants! Did you see the articles in Newsday or Suffolk County News? Heard my squeaky voice on CBS Radio? LOL! There’s more info on the grants in this newsletter but if you know someone in their 90's that grew up in Islip, put a toe into the Connetquot River, I want to talk to them for our South Shore Memories Project funded by LILRC.
Earth Day Planting and I Love My Park Day Registration is now open. Volunteer opportunities abound. Check the website for what’s going on. Do you have an idea for a project? Contact the Friends. And YES! I will reply.
