Good morning, East Hampton.

— A service will be held today for Wesley Carrion, the 90-year-old Sag Harbor man who died in a house fire last week. Carrion, a World War II veteran, was a major when he retired from the Army. His family is planning a memorial service. We'll let you know when that's scheduled.

— Did your hear about the injured swan on Georgica? Bill Williams came upon the swan, bloodied, during a walk on the beach Monday. The picture is so sad, but at least the man who found the swan was able to get the hooks out of it. A good reminder to dispose of your fishing lures and hooks.

— Montauk School students will unveil an art project they completed at the Montauk Recycling Center on Tuesday morning. We'll bring you more on that later.

— Can you believe that someone "tampered" with a clam entered in the Largest Clam Contest on Sunday? We were a bit surprised. On a happier note, congratulations are in order for Edward Hoff Jr. and his son Edward Hoff III who dug up the biggest clams.

— Save the date: A fundraiser for Fred Overton, who is running for town board, and Joe Bloecker, who is running for town assessor, is slated for Oct. 18. The event will take place at Harbor Grill from 5 to 7 p.m. Donations are requested.

— Going to the Hamptons International Film Festival this weekend? Consider blogging about the films you see. Get your blog set up ahead of time.
