We would like to Thank everyone who helped us out at the race on Sunday.  I know that i was running on fumes as I dj'd the previous night.  Very thankful to have enough time to grab some Mickey Dees for some added punch.  As we played some remixed classics off my phone and got the crowd fired up as runners and walkers crossed the finish line.  I really enjoy being apart of the race team as the MC

Today for our Rotary Day of Service we enjoyed entertaining the residents at the Southampton Rehabilitation Center. A marimba band from Bridgehampton High School played and the kids from Southampton Schools played games like red light green light, hot potato, duck duck goose, and the Rotarians got up to play hot potato too!! From a woman who approached me “this was the most fun day ever” Today for our Rotary Day of Service we enjoyed entertaining the residents at the Southampton Rehabilitation Center.
