Honor veterans with festival cash


To the Editor:

Tisbury government has a unique opportunity to honor the service of past and current veterans from their community. Recently, the town has authorized the use of Veterans Memorial Park for the purpose of running a three-day music festival this coming August.

In recognition of these brave soldiers and the many sacrifices they dutifully made, I am respectfully asking that Vineyard Haven town officials consider donating the $40,000 offered to the town by the promoter to needy Tisbury veterans and their families.
