The Shelter Island Country Club’s clubhouse.

Several people were confused by a previous headline to this post that the country club was closing. It is not, and continues to go strong. The Reporter regrets any confusion caused by the headline.

According to the Shelter Island Gazette:

“An exhibit opening May 26 honors the 40th Shelter Island 10K. It highlights runners — from elite finishers to Island hopefuls — with images that capture the spirit of the event since the first race.

“It also offers a retrospective of running fashions — including lots of 1980s mullets, short-shorts and tube socks.

“All are welcome to attend an opening reception on Sunday, May 26, 4 to 6 p.m. It takes place in the gallery at Shelter Island Gazette headquarters at 13 Grand Avenue. We’ll be serving refreshments.”

The exhibit will be hung through race day.
