Coastguardsmen from Station Menemsha visited Windemere Tuesday and brought their dancing shoes. After a 5 pm dinner catered by Chris Porterfield, manager of the hospital dietary department, the dancing began. Petty Officers Gary Kovack, Juan Gandara, Jerry Tringle, and Michael Luongo, along with Fireman Louis Santana, foxtrotted and otherwise boogied with several Windemere residents. Phil Dietterich, on piano, and Edson Rodgers, playing trumpet, provided music from the World War II period.
