  • Play Groups

    With IPP’s Morning Program moving back to the school this summer, we’re going to miss the pitter-patter of little feet around here!  To make sure we get our cuteness overload quota, we’ll be hosting play groups twice a week in the playroom.  If you haven’t been there before, we’ve got a chalkboard wall, a few […]

  • Trivia Night at FICC

    When I moved to Fishers, people asked me all sorts of things. “What are you going to do? Won’t you miss going shopping? To the movies? Being able to walk to anything you need?” Clearly, they didn’t know the very walkable island, that I go to the movie theater about once a year (unless I’m […]

  • We Asked…You Answered

    Last month, the Programming Committee published a survey to understand what continuing education opportunities you want to see the Community Center offer. Thanks to those who participated, we have a better idea of what you want and need us to provide. The most popular categories were Tech/Phones and Personal Finance. Tech/Phones requests included a lot […]

  • League Bowling Returns

Send contact info for however many you have to Marj Beck or the Community Center, and we’ll find some free […]

  • Pumpkin Decorating

    Grab your pumpkins over town, then come on down to the Community Center at 3 pm on Saturday, October 15th. We’ll have paint, markers, glitter, and maybe a smock or two, but no knives – this isn’t designed to be a pumpkin carving station!  We’ll need you to come with clever ideas, enthusiasm, pumpkins, and […]

  • Dancing into Fall

    I’m hugely excited to share that we’ve got not one, but two dance programs coming this fall! The first is a three-month youth ballet program, brought in partnership with the Fishers Island School.  One of the TAs there, Ana Rose Webster, also has a degree in dance instruction and is excited to bring ballet instruction […]

  • Paint the Town

    We’ve scheduled a Paint & Sip party over in New London on Friday, October 14th! It’s a BYOB event with you and at least five of your closest friends, where you all walk away with more or less the same painting. It’s fun. It’s also an excuse to get off-island. Get more detail here, RSVP […]

  • Animal Rescue Team Training

    Did you know that seals love Hungry Point? That leatherback sea turtles travel north in the late summer and occasionally wash ashore? That whales have been found on Fishers and are regularly spotted in its waters? That dolphins too can end up on the beach – one up at the Castle as recently as this […]

  • Reflections on a Summer Internship

    In early April, I sat at my dorm room’s desk, checking my email. One of the unread messages was a forwarded version of the Fog Horn from my dear mother. She directed my attention to a summer internship position posted therein. Having been at a loss for what I was going to do when the […]
