The Children's Museum of the East End (CMEE) in Bridgehampton honored Lucy Muhlfeld Kazickas - one of its founding mothers – at a cocktail party Friday night at the
Museum. Over 150 people turned out to help CMEE dedicate the 200-foot boardwalk leading to the front door of the Museum as "Lucy's Way" in her honor. Guests enjoyed wine donated by Channing Daughters and hors d'oeuvres by Peter Ambrose. Cake Hampton contributed a specially designed CMEE cake and cupcakes and Ms. Muhlfeld Kazickas donated cheese from Lucy's Whey, her cheese shop in East Hampton.

During the dedication ceremony, Lucy Muhlfeld Kazickas called CMEE's other "founding mothers" up to the podium and thanked Beatrice Alda, Marguerite Gualtieri, Kari Lyn Jones, Jorie Latham, Jacqui Leader, Bridget LeRoy, and Janet Jennings Potter for their vision and determination to create the Museum. She also thanked Bridgehampton National Bank for realizing the importance of a children's museum to the community. She acknowledged that the founding mothers of CMEE were now the "godmothers" to the current generation of trustees who are stewarding the Museum into the future.

"Lucy's Way" will be marked by a decorative arch at the entrance to the boardwalk, as well as by name plates with the names of supporters along the boardwalk's hand rail,
and on benches and picnic tables at the Museum. Funds raised for "Lucy's Way" will be used by CMEE to develop an interpretive master plan that will help CMEE sustain itself and continue to meet the needs to families on the East End.
