Open House at Coast Guard Station Shinnecock

Coast Guard Station Shinnecock in Hampton Bays will have an open house on Saturday at which visitors can get up close to the equipment and personnel keeping commercial and recreational fishermen and boaters safe.

The "day of family fun," from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., will include free hot dogs, demonstrations of a helicopter and a K-9 unit, and lessons on knot tying, navigation, safety, and conservation.

The station is at 100 Foster Avenue, near the Ponquogue Bridge. Rain cancels the open house.
