Here's a look at what's happening on the North Fork on Tuesday.
- Bring a sweatshirt. Tuesday dawned sunny but cool, with temperatures expected to reach a high of 65 degrees.
- The North Fork Promotion Council is hosting a meeting at Southold Town Hall at 2:30 p.m. to bring business owners and organizations together to discuss "Taste North Fork," a tourism event planned for Veterans Day weekend, from Nov. 8 through 11. The large-scale agri-tourism event is meant to bring visitors to the North Fork in the fall, and will include Hampton Jitney buses bringing guests to wineries, farms, and other parts of the North Fork. The initiative was funded partially with a $335,000 grant awarded to the East End Tourism Alliance this spring. It's the largest project ever undertaken for agri-tourism in the off-season months and businesses are asked to participate.
- Southold Town residents hoping to reduce their energy costs can learn how at a meeting Tuesday night at Town Hall. The meeting takes place at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall meeting room. The Southold Renewable and Alternative Energy Committee will host the informational meeting, where residents can learn about programs to reduce energy costs and usage. The “Long Island Green Homes” initiative offers free or reduced cost energy audits to determine what improvements will make the home more energy efficient, including examining insulation, heating, cooling and hot water systems, appliances and lighting.
- - Try a nature walk and head to Tuesdays with Tom at the Arshamomaque Preserve. Mid-September is the peak of fall migration. Warblers, vireos, and others could be seen and heard. Meet at Inlet Pond County Park in Greenport at 8 a.m. for the two-hour event. For more info and to register, call 631-275-3202 or email tdamiani3@ optimum.net.
- After Greenport Mayor David Nyce discussed moving the fireboat, and then suggested giving the railroad dock back to the county to run, residents are speaking out. What do you think?
- The Southold Mothers Club offers a Toddler Playgroup II, for ages 2.5 to 3.5 years, from11 a.m. until noon at the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Library. The playgroup is designed to gather children for socialization through play and for moms to meet other moms of similar aged children.
