Before I leave


To the Editor:

Before I leave for the winter, I would like to thank the Chilmarkers for all the services that make our summers so pleasant. The Chilmark selectmen, who provide a ball field for our games. The entrepreneurs, Joel at the Chilmark Store, Jenna at the Tavern, and the Larsen sisters, who let me get fresh fish early in the morning before they open. Then there’s that great server Danna at the Beach Plum. Thanks again to Katie Carroll for her electrifying softball writeups and for receiving my frantic weekly phone calls at her busy Texaco station. Finally, my wife couldn’t exist without that awesome Chilmark Library.
