Now that summer is officially in full swing, what better way to celebrate the season than a festive Caribbean Cocktail Party? On Monday, July 3, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., join the Eastville Community Historical Society for Eastville Heritage House's signature Caribbean Rum Punch, wine, tasty island hors d'oeuvres and tropical piña colada ice cream, and more.

"We invite the public to come celebrate the start of the summer season in Caribbean style and enjoy a last chance to see the wonderful work of Maxine Townsend-Broderick," said Eastville Community Historical Society Board President Audrey Gaines.

The benefit will also serve as your final chance to see Maxine's World, a mixed-media exhibition by artist Maxine Townsend-Broderick, at the Eastville Heritage House in Sag Harbor. The art show features a multitude of mediums, including oil, watercolor, fabric, sand, printmaking, photography, encaustic, sculpture, jewelry, doll making, quilt making, web design and stained glass.

Townsend-Broderick, who was born in Jamaica, New York and studied commercial art and photography at New York Technical College, is a member of the Long Island Black Artist Association and the Long Island Quilters' Society. After working as an artist at a New York advertising agency for a number of years and raising four children, she entered the professional photography field. Townsend-Broderick returned to school and received both her bachelors and masters degrees. Her work has been featured on Long Island, in NYC and the Caribbean.

Admission to the Eastville Community Historical Society's Caribbean Cocktail Party is $30 per person. Tickets are available online or can be purchased at the door.

The Eastville Community Historical Society's mission is to "preserve historic buildings and research, collect and disseminate information about the history of the Eastville area of Sag Harbor, Long Island, New York, County of Suffolk, State of New York, and one of the earliest known working class communities composed of African Americans, Native Americans and European immigrants," as well as "obtain recognition and landmark status for qualified buildings in the Eastville community and St. David AME Zion Cemetery in Sag Harbor, New York; to discover and collect any material which may help establish or illustrate the history of its settlement, development and activities in peace and war and its progress in the areas of population, education, arts, science, agriculture, manufactures, trade and transportation; to collect printed materials, manuscripts, manuscript materials and material objects illustrative of life, conditions, events and activities of the past or present; to disseminate historical information and arouse interest in the past by publishing historical material in the newspapers or the media, conducting tours, holding meetings with lectures, papers and discussions and by marking historical buildings, sites and places of local historical significance; to educate local school children by exposing them, through artifacts, tours and lectures, to this rich addition to local history thus enhancing their experience of Sag Harbor Village life."
