Congratulations and many thanks go to Paddy Moore for all she has done for all of us, not just for Island seniors. The Spirit of the Vineyard Award is well deserved recognition for her decades of efforts resulting in so many achievements. I didn’t realize Paddy also was the one who initiated the Rural Scholars’ survey of Island needs which, in partnership with the University of Massachusetts, has brought dozens of student researchers to the Island to study tick-borne illness, drug use, and women’s health. The actual ceremony for Paddy Moore’s award will be at the First Congregational Church in West Tisbury on Saturday, Dec, 3, with light refreshments, from 4 to 6 pm. Stop in to thank her in-person. All are welcome.
Express your thanks by supporting the Vineyard Committee on Hunger appeal for the Family to Family dinner. This provides Thanksgiving dinner, turkey with all the trimmings, to needy families on the island. Every dime raised by VCOH stays here on Martha’s Vineyard. Write your $25 check to Family to Family, and mail it to P.O. Box 4685, Vineyard Haven, 02568.
