Pedal for the Pantry, Learn about Saturn on Wednesday
Good morning, East Hampton.

— The photo I with this post is from the Montauk Recycling Center, where Montauk School students hung their art work on Tuesday, the final results of a project with the Concerned Citizens of Montauk. The work is really beautiful, and definitely glams up the town dump! What do you think of it? Unfortunately, you can't go see it today because the center is closed on Wednesday.

— Speaking of Montauk, " Pedal for the Pantry" tonight at CinemaCycle. Allen Gregg will lead a 55-minute ride to stock the shelves at the Montauk Food Pantry. Just bring a bag of non-perishables and/or a monetary donation. Advance reservations recommended. Email at ridetoday@cinemacycle.net.

— Also tonight, Dr. Mike Inglis, Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at SCCC, will speak about Saturn at the Amagansett Library at 7 p.m. Following the lecture, weather permitting, there will be stargazing using two telescopes from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Register in advance.

— Did you see this monster mussel reportedly found in Montauk? The reader who posted this to our site said it weighs almost 2 pounds. Ever seen anything like that before?

— We shared this story from our sister site on our Facebook page last night, but it's worth sharing here too. The Northport-East Northport Board of Education cut off a 14-year-old boy from speaking during Monday’s meeting when the teen, who has a form of high-functioning autism, attempted to express what he felt was unfair treatment in his classroom due to his disability. Check out the video and let us know what you think.
