Seventy-five years have passed, and the wreck of the City of Columbus stands in marine history and in Island history in a pattern of classic tragedy.

I write this letter with a heavy heart and tremendous sadness. A dear friend, Lillian Kellman, has died.

On behalf of the Chilmark Public Library I would like to pay tribute to Lillian Kellman, a dear friend of the library and the community.

Would whoever took the large whale bones from our property please return them to the driveway?

The Martha’s Vineyard Community Horse Center would like to again express our gratitude.

I am excited by the prospect of moving to Martha’s Vineyard and becoming an integral part of the Island community.
