Dear Long Islander,
Warm weather is headed our way, and although the weekend starts off with a rainy Friday night, it looks like the weather should clear up by mid-day on Saturday, and Sunday will be clear and cool - talk about your April Showers! This week has been a tough one for many people across the United States, as we come to terms with the tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon earlier this week. If you're looking for ways to help, be sure to check out our special feature on supporting the Boston Community, and if you're planning a special event in support of the victims of this attack, let us know, and we will be sure to add you to this guide. As you enjoy time with friends and family this weekend, keep the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing close by in your heart, and your thoughts - we'll be sure to provide you with updates on the investigation into the attacks as they become available.

Hot Off the Presses
History on Wheels: Suffolk County Historical Society's Moveable Museum
Bringing Hands on Learning to Students Across Suffolk!
“Structures and Cultures” is a Suffolk County Historical Society exhibit featuring authentic artifacts from four nomadic tribes from around the world, along with interactive displays and videos. But this exhibit cannot be viewed at the Historical Society’s museum in Riverhead—it moves from place to place in a 37-foot retrofitted Winnebago donated to the Suffolk County Historical Society by the American Museum of Natural History last year. The 250-square foot walk-in exhibit is designed to travel throughout Suffolk County to bring two-day programs to community events and schools.
