Looking Ahead: 'Real Men Wear Pink' Cocktail Party, Fritz Leddy Exhibit

A roundup of 5 events that readers recently posted on Patch.

This week, several events were added to our calendar on East Hampton Patch and we figured we'd highlight a few of them so that you can mark your calendars early.

1. PANCAKE BREAKFASTS

Springs Fire Department pancake breakfast series are back, starting Saturday through Nov. 11 (Veterans eat free that day in honor of Veterans Day). The price for adults is $8, $7 for seniors and $5 for children 6 and under. Not a bad deal and you get to support your volunteer firefighters, too.

2. SHIP COMES TO PORT

Cindy Buffa informed us all about a visit Sag Harbor will be getting from the 122-foot square top sail schooner Lynx on Oct. 12 at noon. It returns to the port in commemoration of the War of 1812, an interpretation of an actual privateer built in 1812 and among the first ships to defend against the British naval fleet. The flotilla will fire as it comes into the harbor. Visitors will have a chance to walk the decks. For a full schedule and pricing click here.

3. SOULCOLLAGE WORKSHOPS

Nancy Kiembock will conduct three SoulCollage introductory workshops on Saturdays from Oct. 13 to 27. The workshops will take place at the Springs Community Arts Project at the Springs Community Presbyterian Church. Participants will make SoulCollage cards and learn how to use them to help answer their life questions. For more information or to sign-up click here.

4. REAL MEN WEAR PINK

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and a cocktail party will be held at the South Fork Country Club in Amagansett in honor of Teresa Montant, a woman who started the 'Real Men Wear Pink' campaign on Shelter Island and lost her battle with breast cancer last year. Tickets are $100. To purchase tickets or more information click here. For other Breast Cancer Awareness Month events, click here. 

5. GALLERY TALK ON FRITZ LEDDY'S PHOTOS

On Oct. 27 at 4:30 p.m., guest curator and Springs-based photographer Doug Kuntz will give a talk at Guild Hall on the never-before-seen works of Fritz Leddy, an East Hampton police chief from 1937 to 1968. In 1999, 12 years after his death, boxes of his negatives were found in the basement of the police station and were developed for a 2006 exhibition at Guild Hall, though only a fraction were shown. The show will be on view from Oct. 27 to Jan. 6.
