October 6, 2005

The folks at the Tisbury Senior Center did their best to promote the Red Sox Nation last Tuesday. They were showing the film "Fever Pitch" just to be sure you were in the right mood.

The Tuesday Chess Club is very popular at the Vineyard Haven Library. It is open for children ages six through high school. Now there is a chess group for adults. It begins at the library tonight at 6 pm and will meet every Thursday. Beginners are especially welcome. For more information, call Scott at 508-693-6394.

Next Tuesday at 11 am children ages three and up are invited to meet "BOO the Scarecrow" from the Secret Vineyard. The children will hear the seaside tale "The Grape Adventure" and meet the author as well as getting signed sea scrolls.

Mark your calendar for October 16. That Sunday is the first in the library speaker series. Tom Dresser will present "Tales of a Vineyard Tour Bus Driver" at 3 pm. The programs are free and open to the public. The Friends of the Vineyard Haven Library will provide refreshments following the talk.

Larry Gomez presented a check for $500 to the Friends of the Vineyard Haven Library last week. Thanks to the generosity of Larry and his partner Kathy Stinson of the Greenwood House B & B, as well as the support of the Tisbury Business Association, the annual 5k walk/run produced the income for the library.

Drivers for Tisbury taxis and members of the Tisbury Business Association have been handing out letters to residents and businesses, asking people to call our selectmen and our representative on the Steamship Authority board of governors. All these people are concerned for the financial impact on our town if the SSA moves three more summer boats to Oak Bluffs. I am more concerned with my own inconvenience. It is much easier in summer traffic to get to the boat in Vineyard Haven than to the ferry in Oak Bluffs. Besides, I can walk home.

I have never thought I had any artistic talent, but I must admit I am considering a provocative class called "Watercolors for Cowards" being presented at Featherstone by Carolyn Daniele. She almost makes it sound possible for anyone to try.

Bright autumn leaves make the dresses for the models in the window of Alley Cat. Many of the downtown businesses have added pumpkins and fall flowers to their window displays. The Beach House has put out colorful mums to brighten up Main Street. Our town is looking very nice. This is a good weekend to admire the shops. Most of them have special sales just for you.

Saturday evening's entertainment will start at 7:30 pm at the Katharine Cornell Theatre. The Silver Screen Film Society will present the Cannes Film Festival Winner "Look At Me," a realistic comedy. Admission is $6 or $4 for film society members.

Arthur and Priscilla Dickson are marking 61 years together tomorrow. Happy anniversary tomorrow to my husband of 44 years. He still introduces me as his first wife. Saturday marks the happy occasion for Nicky's Italian Cafe owners Laura and Bob Barbera.

Big bunches of birthday balloon wishes go out today to Donald Childs. He can probably be found working down at Ace Hardware. Tomorrow wish the best to Bea Welch. Celebrating next Wednesday will be Dean Moon and Ryan David Dunbar.

Heard on Main Street: "Have you noticed that guys wear white socks even after Labor Day?"
