Spend the day in the village enjoying the autumn colors, great shopping and crisp fall air. Have lunch in town or end the day with a meal at one of their fine restaurants. (I had the tuna salad sandwich at the Eat Spot on Saturday – YUMMY!) Also, never miss a chance for a visit to the Kilcherman’s Christmas Cove Farm for some cider and antique apples!

Don’t forget the Northport Promise Chicken Dinner on Sunday from noon to 3 PM at Northport Public School. It will be prepared by Rev. Marshall Collins and his wife Mary with the assistance of Northport Promise volunteers. Guests will enjoy a traditional Southern style dinner of deep fried chicken, green beans, potato salad, candied yams, rolls and butter and sweet potato pie. Cost is $15 for adults, $7.50 for children age 5-12. Children under five are free, and take out is available!
