Montauk Youth and CCOM’s annual *Field Day* is *this Sunday, October 6*from noon to 4pm at Third House (Theodore Roosevelt County Park). Open and FREE to all ages, join us for races, obstacle courses, bounce houses, face painting, fire trucks, a pie throw, and so much more. We’ll be selling chili, drinks, hot dogs, soups and treats to keep you nourished and hydrated! And….we’re raffling off a beach cruiser bicycle, an iPad, and CCOM merchandise. Look for raffle sales at the Post Office today and Friday.
Please let us know if you can help at Field Day. It’s an all-volunteer event, and we always need help selling raffles, organizing the races, setting up, cleaning up, etc.
*Archeology Fest* will be held this *Saturday, October 5* from 10am to 5pm at Second House. The Arch Fest will feature demonstrations of prehistoric and native skills such as early cooking techniques, bow- and arrow-making, flintknapping, friction fire, and so much more. World-known archeologists and historians will give informative talks and answer your questions. Food and beverages will be available.
Honora Herlihy is heading up a Bake Sale at Archeology Fest to raise funds for Second House museum restoration. If you can bake, she is accepting large brownies or cookies (no nuts), wrapped individually for sale. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange drop off or pick up.
