“There’s no greater gift than a community coming together and supporting each other and that’s what Shelter Island does best,” said Gina Krauss, a board member of Island Gift of Life Foundation, which helps East End families with uninsured costs during treatment of serious diseases such as travel and lodging expenses for family members to distant treatment centers.

The Foundation is hosting its 19th Annual Cheryl Hannabury Memorial “Celebration of Life” community cocktail party on Saturday, March 2, from 6 to 9 p.m., at the Ram’s Head Inn. The evening will feature live music, an open bar, light fare, a 50/50 raffle, a Chinese auction and an experiential bid auction.

On Wednesday, February 13, Shelter Island School’s students and teachers celebrated the 100th Day of School. Elementary students and teachers celebrated by dressing up as if they were 100 years old.

Meanwhile, students in pre-K through 3rd grade in physical education classes were challenged to balance a bean bag for 100 seconds, gallop around the gym 100 times, toss and catch a ball for 100 seconds, do 10 different yoga poses for 10 seconds each and run in place for 100 seconds. They all earned certificates for either completing the challenge or attempting it.
