To the Editor:
After my son’s fishing pole was taken from the Edgartown dock, I drove to Coop’s with a carload of kids and asked the owner for an inexpensive rod. I was probably looking bewildered, and he asked why? I told him of my son’s mishap of his missing rod at the Edgartown dock. He immediately went in back and pulled out a reel/rod already to go and said it was from him. That is the Vineyard spirit we have experienced for more than 10 years. Thank you to Coop’s and your kindness, my son’s Menemsha fishing was successful. See you next year.
