BEACH PLUM JELLY WORKSHOP with Elizabeth Yastrzemski

Beach Plums were reportedly used as food by early Native Americans. Since European explorers arrived by ship, it is not surprising that beach plums were one of the first plants they noticed when they reached the shores of North America. In 1524, explorer Giovanni de Verrazano noted the plums along the shores of southern New York, which he called “damson trees.” Later, in 1609, explorer Henry Hudson reported seeing an abundance of “blue plums” on the banks of the river we now know as the Hudson River in New York. Beach plums have been prized for generations by those who live by the shore. Anyone who grew up on the east end of Long Island or in Cape Cod probably has an older relative or neighbor who knows of a secret spot at the beach with the best plums. Elizabeth Yastrzemski local baker and floral -garden designer will lead a workshop on the making of local beach plum jelly. Leave with 2 jars of beach plum jelly. Coffee, tea and dessert will be served. Beach plum history credited to: All About Beach Plums – Hampton Beach Plum Company http://hamptonbeachplumcompany.com Co-Sponsored with the Rogers Memorial Library.

In Defense of Long Island’s Patriots

Following General George Washington’s defeat at the Battle of Long Island, the East End found itself cut off from other, so-called “Patriot” sympathizers who supported the war with Britain. Confronted with the arrival of British and Hessian military forces, Southampton’s inhabitants were encouraged to flee across the Long Island Sound to Connecticut. Many did, but many did not have the resources to abandon their homes and livelihoods, and stayed in Southampton, where many patriots were forced to sign an Oath of Allegiance to the crown. Joseph Vermaelen, President of the Long Island Chapter of the National Society Sons of the American Revolution, will examine a current controversy surrounding the NSDAR’s Policy of disqualifying Long Island’s Patriots from their membership based on the Oath of Allegiance many of their ancestors were forced to sign.
