But first, today’s weather:

Breezy in the afternoon. High: 75, low: 46.

πŸ“’ I’m looking for business owners and marketers in Shirley-Mastic who want to build awareness, connect with customers, and increase sales.

I have a limited number of sponsorships available to introduce our Shirley-Mastic Daily readers to local businesses they need to know about. If that’s you, then I invite you to learn more and secure your spot now.

Here are the top four stories today in Shirley-Mastic:

Patch deal of the day:

Wine lover alert. We found this amazing deal from Splash Wines β€” an 18-bottle curated selection of reds and whites for fall β€” for just $69. 99. Shipping isn’t cheap at $39. 95, but that still comes out to just over $6 per bottle. Splash Wines has a money-back guarantee if you don’t like the wine and 4. 6 out of 5 rating on TrustPilot. So: recommended.
