The Kiwanis Club of New Cassel will be holding a wine and cheese tasting at the Westbury Recreation Center.

Community members are invited to come out and network, and enter the raffle for a chance to win a gift basket. From 6 to 9:30 p.m.
Hot Jazz, Dixieland, French Chanson & Gutbucket Blues. The Hot Sardines sound – wartime Paris via New Orleans, or the other way around – is steeped in hot jazz, salty stride piano, and the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt and Fats Waller used to make: Straight-up, foot-stomping jazz. (Literally – the band includes a tap dancer whose feet count as two members of the rhythm section). They manage to invoke the sounds of a near-century ago and stay resolutely in step with the current age. At the Old Westbury Gardens. Gates open at 5 pm. Dance lesson at 6:30 pm. Concert starts at 7 p.m. General Admission is $10, $8 for 62 and older and members, free for children 17 and under.
