Shelter Island will be an island of fun tomorrow Saturday, August 24. At the Center firehouse, located on Route 114 in the heart of town, the Shelter Island Fire Department will host a Country Fair between noon and 3 p.m. There will be something for everyone — a pig roast, turkey, sausage and peppers, kielbasa, as well as hot dogs and burgers with all the accompaniments.
