Saving the Windmill

Posted on 11 May 2012

Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce president Robert Evjen, Save Sag Harbor members Jayne Young and Hillary Loomis and benefit committee volunteer Ginny Hubert met at the windmill on Long Wharf on Monday to announce the donation of $5,703 by Save Sag Harbor toward a new sail for the windmill. One of the four sails was damaged by Hurricane Irene last year, and, for safety reasons, the remaining three were also removed.

It is estimated to cost $60 – $70,000 to fully restore the windmill. To date, roughly $18,000 has been raised, including a recent $9,000 anonymous donation to rebuild the remaining three sails. A “Mambo at Muse” fundraising party will be held at the Muse Restaurant this Wednesday, May 16, 4:30-6:30 p.m. for anyone who wishes to help the cause, and any donations of time and materials by local contractors will also be welcomed.
