This will be my second year my family will not attend Southampton Days. Solely due to the allegations of paying volunteers for festival events. I am appalled that the board would let this unethical behavior occur. Our community deserves better.

Hoagies are back this year. Boy Scout Troop 5 will be selling them, along with chili and Caesar salads.

Apparently some of the Committee people were paying themselves for doing certain work.While under the guise of volunteering.Dispiciple behavior,if not illegal.There was a lengthy thread addressing this,were some of them admitted it and tried to justify it.I don't know if this is still occuring,but apparently it was going on for quite some time.People should be honest about what is going on,if you are truly volunteering then how can you take a pay check?

My neighbor was involved for years and it appears to be true. The board of directors refuse to talk about it one on one. Come to a meeting and voice your concerns is what you will get. Their meeting, their rules, their way. What does that tell you?
