There's still time to donate and we have several key sponsorship opportunities available. Our thanks go out to all of our supporters and especially to our Grand Finale sponsor, the Seaport Group of Montauk, which donated $10,000! Your generous support allows us to keep this important, patriotic tradition alive in Montauk. Thank you, Paul Monte, President Montauk Chamber of Commerce

You're lucky you don't have the Piping Pluvers to deal with. We have to have our EH Fire Dept fireworks for Labor Day because of them. By the way, they taste like chicken!!!!
