On Saturday July 19th, the Fishers Island Theater parking lot rocked with the sounds of Ben Cameron and his band from Nashville. The concert was put on by the Friends of the Fishers Island Theater (FFIT); and more than 260 people came out to enjoy the music, support Ben, and show their support for the Theater. Many enjoyed tailgate spots, while others gathered down in front! As everyone knows by now, the town of Southold shut down the theater this summer due to some bricks falling off the building. Ben’s concert was a great reminder to us all how integral the theater is to our community; and the Friends of the FFIT Committee would like to thank everyone for their continued support!
