The Vineyard Independence Partnership (VIP) invites members, friends and potential friends to two June events: On June 7 at 5 p.m., VIP will be hosting a walk at Polly Hill Arboretum in West Tisbury, followed by a pizza supper. A $5 contribution to Polly Hill and RSVP are requested. The rain date will be June 8.
On Tuesday, June 28, Flatbread Pizza on Airport Road in Edgartown will donate a generous slice of the evening’s pizza sales to support VIP activities.
VIP is a nonprofit volunteer group made up of individuals with disabilities, family members and friends working to make sure the benefits of Island life are available to all. VIP was founded 30 years ago as the Martha’s Vineyard Special Parents Association, changing its name in 2007 to better reflect its broad membership and interests. Over the years, VIP has been involved in many important advocacy efforts, such as working to improve ferry accessibility, helping to establish the Island base for the Early Childhood Intervention Program, and developing transportation, housing and employment opportunities.
