You can practically smell it. Spring is in the air and on the East End, that mean's summer's coming. Activity is ramping up across the Twin Forks and it's certainly a bustling time for us here at The Independent. Like the blossoms on our favorite trees, we're bursting with excitement, eager to begin a new chapter in our history, and thrilled about what that means for our readers.
We've already implemented what's quickly becoming a favorite component of Indy, our "Walk Down Memory Lane" series highlighting both the recollections of some of our venerated "old timers" and the history of local institutions. (Check last week's story of the creation of the Westhampton Free Library by visiting www.indyeastend.com and clicking on the archives button.) We invite readers to get in touch to share your stories of growing up locally back in the day.
For our Memorial Day edition this year, we hope to reach back to our own past and return our annual "Heroes of The Hamptons" special section. "Heroes" highlights local volunteers and activists who help make our community the rich and giving home we all love. Who's your hero? Let us know.
