Artist April Gornik was the grateful recipient of the first-ever annual Sag Harbor Partnership Community Service Award, presented to her at Baron's Cove on Sunday, October 23, 2016. The award itself was a spectacular blown-glass version of her whale image used for the Walking Tours, to which she has contributed, and commemorated her years of service to the community. She was a founding member of Save Sag Harbor as well as the Partnership, and her work has affected community, environmental, animal welfare and other causes.
Baron's Cove generously donated a spectacularly delicious meal, and Sag Harbor Florist kindly donated beautiful flowers for the tables. Funds were also raised towards the installation of the AME Zion Church Cemetery Fence. It was a warm and moving celebration, and reaffirmed the beauty of our community and its wide reach.
