Through the efforts of many, starting with the former Commander Robert Ganga of the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 419 in Amagansett, the squadron will be dedicating a memorial on the grounds at The American Legion Post honoring the victims of the attacks on September 11, 2001. A striking 14-foot structural steel beam salvaged from the debris of the World Trade Center was donated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to the squadron, which commissioned artist Gustavo Bonevardi to incorporate it into a design. Best known for his work on the memorial "Tribute in Light” — the twin beams of light projected skyward from Lower Manhattan every September 11th — Bonevardi has devised an intimate memorial for Amagansett that will offer a space for contemplation for the entire community. This project is largely made possible through contributions of goods and services by members of our community. To raise the remaining funds required, the squadron is requesting for donations through this fundraiser where the public can add there own personal thoughts or dedications. How to Order Just follow the simple step-by-step process below to place your order. Be sure you are happy with your brick design as it will look very similar to the image on your computer when completed.  

Comedian Arch Schill
I am an Air Force Korean Conflict veteran living on Long Island. I went to Roanoke College and then graduated from CCNY, where I went to night school while I was working when my father became ill. My career has spanned a number of industries, both as an employee and business owner. For the past 30 years I have been a senior executive of Executive Career Partners, a nationwide company which helps people change careers, find jobs, make more money, etc. by coaching them through the job market. Ellen, my wife of more than 50 years, had passed away very suddenly in September 2014 and I found myself with empty evenings and weekends, so in 2017 I started doing stand-up comedy and have been fortunate to appear with some outstanding comics in various comedy clubs, colleges, theaters and casinos. In 2017, out of 700+ comics, I was one of the two winners of the AARP Funniest Comedian contest and, as a result, I have been on a number of AARP 50+ shows. This year I closed the show at Comix at Mohegan Sun on July 4th and will be closing it again on Veterans Day. I am also a member of the Veterans Comedy Assault Team, part of Project 9Line, which helps veterans, some of whom have suffered through PTSD and other physical and mental problems, to work their way through those problems by providing free classes in art, music, yoga, and, in my case, stand-up comedy.

Comedian Chris Williamson:
Chris Williamson’s first foray into the entertainment business was playing Dopey in the fifth grade production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Chris remembers it as a smashing success. It was memorable for the rest of Marion Delaney Elementary school as well, since Chris wet his pants during the dress rehearsals. And announced it on stage. Years after elementary school Chris was able to take the stage as a standup comic and performed most of his shows without wetting his pants. He went from opening shows in a bowling alley in Coram, NY to appearing at places like the Riviera in Palm Springs. He became a regular writer and guest on many radio stations around the country, creating bits and spending time on air. You may have heard him on The Howard Stern Show or as a frequent guest on "The Wakin’ Up With the Wolf Show” on Clear Channel radio, and many, many others. He eventually went on to host his own radio show on Long Island’s WGBB. Both listeners were very upset when his show went off the air. Being a married father of two, Chris made the decision to leave his comedy road life behind and concentrate on being a family man. Thanks to that decision Chris is now a separated father of two living in a one bedroom apartment on Long Island and is not currently touring the world. Chris Williamson the humorist has seen his works published in places like New York’s Newsday and The Chicago Tribune. And he’s back on the road – just a little – so check back soon to see if he’s coming to a town near you.

    After a week-long deliberation, we have decided that it is in the community's best interest that the Talkhouse be closed for now until it is safe for us to open. We are in uncharted waters and we will be monitoring the spread, and hopefully the containment, of the virus. This is a tough decision for us as we know we provide an outlet for people to have a good time. We feel that everyone's safety and health is what we should focus on until we have a better grasp of the situation. During the next two weeks we will be installing hand sanitizer's throughout the bar. We also will be instituting sanitizing protocols when we do open. To all our patrons, musicians, and everyone else we ask that you take this situation seriously and stay safe and healthy. When we do open please stay home if you suspect that you may be ill. We will update you if anything changes. Again, please stay safe.
