Aquinnah: short, and no weather complaints


I have a vague memory of promising not to complain about the weather anymore this winter. Since I feel like it’s important to be true to my word, my column will be very short this week.

This Saturday at the library there will be a master craft class; Barbara will teach you how to turn plastic bags into fabric. The class will be held at 1 pm. Story time for the little ones is always Thursdays at 3:30 pm, and you can always drop in. On Saturday, April 19, at 10:30 am sharp there will be an Easter egg hunt followed by a spring fling. Yes, Easter weekend is in two weeks. Easter Sunday is April 20, and Elise will have her big Easter egg hunt at the Duck Inn on that day. Usually there is egg decorating at the inn the weekend before, but I haven’t gotten confirmation of the time yet. Easter weekend also kicks off the April vacation for the Martha’s Vineyard public schools. April vacation is the last chance to get some peace and quiet before the onslaught of summer preparation. Although this has been such a long winter I’m pretty ready for the onslaught.

This Friday at Pathways, Joan LeLacheur and other Island designers will be on hand with their creations for a “Wearable Art Costume Ball” from 5 to 9 pm. You can come in costume or put something together at the party. The band Random Thought will perform at 7 pm. If you haven’t seen any of the creative happenings at Pathways this season I encourage you to go as the season will be ending soon.

On Saturday and Sunday at the Katherine Cornell Theatre the last show of the season for Shakespeare for the Masses will be performed. I and some other talented people will perform a quick, painless, and free reading of “Cymbeline.” You may have seen this show when the Playhouse did it in the amphitheater in 2003. This production will be nothing like that one. Saturday at 7 pm and Sunday at 2 pm.

Pam Glavin put the winter weather to good use and went skiing with a girlfriend in North Conway, New Hampshire, over the weekend. She said the snow was amazing and plentiful. She did both cross-country and downhill and hopes to take her grandson Eliott before the season ends.

I saw Ona Ignacio on the boat the other day. She has had a good winter despite the fact that her son Skyler has been on crutches for most of the winter due to a recovering ACL injury. He is now finally off crutches and Ona did manage to get away to Jamaica for a bit while her mom, Adrianna, came to the Vineyard from Utah and watched the boys. That’s a good grandma.
