An Island staycation

While some families left the Island this week for warmer, more exotic destinations or adventurous ski trips up north, many stayed behind and enjoyed some quiet time on the Island; local businesses catered to schoolchildren during their break. The YMCA’s action-packed agenda included an ice skating excursion, a visit from Felix Neck, and a trip to Woodside Village, among other activities. The Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse held a special family screening of Mary Poppins, and the West Tisbury library hosted daily movies and crafts throughout the week. Despite staying home, there was still fun to be had!
