December 2016 Calendar

Dear Members,

Looking for a holiday gift? In our Museum Shop, an Artists’ Tree is decorated with unique ornaments created by our local artists. Lovely works of art are for sale by the same artists. For the “readers” on your Christmas list: A Shared Aesthetic: Artists of Long Island’s North Fork; A World Unto Itself: The Remarkable History of Plum Island; The Long Island Railroad; Poetry of Cooking; Harry Potter’s Quidditch; and Murder on Long Island. See our website for a listing of the many titles in our shop.

Right next door is the wonderful Treasure Exchange which offers beautiful gifts, ranging from home décor, jewelry, art work and linens.

A gift for the music-lover can be tickets to the Victorian Holiday Concert at the Southold Opera House.

A present for that hard-to-find-gift person on your list is a membership to the Historical Society for 2017. Please go to our website to sign up.

My gift to all is a wish for a joyous and safe holiday spent with family and friends!
