Thank you
To the Editor:
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the Shelter Island Fireworks and helped make this year’s show possible.

Without the support of donors, and the tireless efforts of the Suffolk County Police, Shelter Island Police, Shelter Island Fire Department, Shelter Island Emergency Medical Services, Shelter Island Highway Department, and all of our volunteers, the show could not go on.

We thank you! (more…)
