Town Column : Oak Bluffs
It was a made-to-order perfect Memorial Day weekend with the predictions of great weather and sun actually being fulfilled. What better way to start off than the Hospice "Fun Walk and Race" that was held on Sunday. The Fun Run started from the Wesley House and that beautiful area along the bulkhead was filled to capacity with runners and observers. Then an amazing number of runners set off from Ocean Park and it looked as if the line of runners would never end. It was a most successful endeavor supporting a wonderful cause.
