Family, friends, colleagues, and former students made their way to Windemere on Sunday afternoon to help John Mayhew of West Tisbury celebrate his 90th birthday. Mr. Mayhew taught math at the regional high school for 27 years. Several of his students from the 1960s were there to wish him well on Sunday, along with a few of his teaching colleagues.

Music from the 1940s enlivened the gathering thanks to the technological wizardry of Jack Mayhew, who also ran a slide show that he had created for the 40th anniversary of his parents, John and Shirley, and reprised at their 50th and 60th.
