Fundraiser for Windemere recreation

It takes money to maintain the Windemere Recreation Department, which takes residents to concerts, sailing, and even the occasional bi-plane ride, and an auction Friday night, May 31, will help raise funds for the department. From 6 to 8 pm at the Ag Hall in West Tisbury, take part in both a silent and live auction with auctioneer Paul Watts, and enjoy light fare, wine, and sweets. Admission is free. For more information, call 508-862-1933.
