One of this month’s weekend snow storms postponed the showing of films made by Robert and Marjory Potts. The two films will be shown on Sunday at the Hebrew Center at 4 pm. “Making Music” was shot in a house on Tashmoo, where Tom Goethals housed a quartet in July 1982 while they were here performing in a chamber music series at Nathan Mayhew Seminars.
The other film, “Their Lives In Art: Robert Henry & Selina Trieff,” is about the life and work of a Provincetown/New York/ Vineyard couple whose life has been devoted to the making of art. The Trieffs lived in Christiantown for more than 30 years.
I placed an order online, actually for a couple of items. Neither cost $10. The pricier item came in a plastic bag. The less expensive one came in a plastic bag tucked into a white velvet pouch which was in turn placed in a lovely velvety box of light blue. Which company do you think I will use next time?
Ann Charnley calls it Parlor Politics. She was the research historian for Cokie Roberts’s book “Ladies of Liberty.” Ann also served several years as the director of the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues. Of course, we all know that all issues are women’s issues. Ann will speak about life in the early colonies, an intimate look at the patriotic and passionate women who made our country work, featuring Dolley Madison. Learn more about our “founding mothers” on Tuesday at 7 pm at the Vineyard Haven Library.
Next Thursday morning at 10:30 little ones three and under will enjoy the antics of Mother Goose on the Loose at our library, with Nelia and Amy from the West Tisbury Library.

Susie Goldstein says she is looking forward to the new restaurant Copper Wok, opening in April at the Mansion House. JB Blau and Chef Alex Nagi have pleased many of us at Sharkey’s and the MV Chowder Company, so we do have high hopes for this new eatery which will serve Pan Asian food.

Mothers Opposed to Mayhem (MOM) invite you to meet at Five Corners and Join Hands to Change Gun Laws. That is scheduled for a week from Sunday: March 10 at noon. The group was formed after the tragedy at Sandy Hook in Connecticut. A vigil to end the deaths of our children by high-powered, semi-automatic weapons will be held in memory of all children who have perished from gun violence.
By taking part you will show your support to our leaders who are fighting for change and to show that we will support them at the polls. Our own Geraldine Brooks says, “It’s time to stand up and say ‘Enough.’ And to say it in a voice loud enough to drown out the irrational fanatics who have dominated this issue for too long. Stand with us on March 10. For the sake of our kids. For the sake of our souls.”
