It is time to spring ahead to Daylight Saving Time. Plan to change your clocks on Saturday so you won’t be late whatever your plans. That means you have to check the time for Sunday’s vigil at Five Corners.
Don’t forget. We expect to see you on Sunday at noon, Daylight Saving Time, at Five Corners. Join Hands to Change Gun Laws. Your presence is needed at this vigil to end gun violence. We need to let our leaders know that we plan to support them at the polls.
Next Tuesday evening at 7 pm the Vineyard Haven Library offers another in the Oscar series. The Oscar for Best Picture went to the film directed by and starring Ben Affleck. This thriller is based on a 1979 CIA operation in which agent Tony Mendez led the rescue of six U.S. diplomats from Tehran during the hostage crisis. The film stars Affleck with Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin, and John Goodman.
Phyllis Dunn’s lovely photographs of our island will be on display as Art in the Stacks at the Vineyard Haven Library through March.

Next Thursday morning parents of little ones up to age 3 will want to go to the library at 10:30 for Mother Goose on the Loose.
If you are a woman in business, you are invited to a breakfast social next Wednesday from 8 to 9:30 am at Café Moxie. You don’t need to be a member of the MV Women’s Network who sponsor this event.

A week from Monday the Tisbury Senior Center offers an unusual experience. Anna Marie D’Addario will be there from ten to noon to teach you about UpCycling. Ever heard of ‘tarn’ and ‘plarn’? This is a way of turning old tee-shirts and plastic grocery bags into new yarn, so to speak. You can make hats, beach bags, or a tee-shirt quilt. Something old becomes something new, usable and practical. Anyone can do it. The workshop will be fun. All supplies and instruction will be free. You are all welcome. Anna Marie has been teaching Island knitters, spinners, and weavers for more than a decade. You may know her from Fiber Folks, the Heath Hen Yarn & Quilt Shop, or the Oak Bluffs Library.
The Center for Living invites you to celebrate spring at the luncheon on Saturday, March 23, at the Grill on Main from noon to 2 pm to honor The Martha’s Vineyard Museum.

For reservations call Leslie at 508-939-9440 or get your ticket from Karen Achille, Rise Tierney, Gerry Averill, Gary Cogley, or Ginger Duarte. Tickets cost $25.
We look forward to spring, not only for the appearance of crocuses and forsythia but also for the return of our neighbors who have been enjoying the warmth of sunnier climes. And starting Sunday the sunset will be later.
Heard on Main Street: I have been thinking a lot about the hereafter. Every time I enter a room I wonder what I am here after.
