There are a lot of smiles on people’s faces as they are enjoying the cool sunny weather. You can wear long sleeves, short sleeves, and still be comfortable. You can even still enjoy the beach. And even though we had a drizzly weekend the weddings were still beautiful.

Marge Look called to inform me that their son Chris was in the hospital in Boston. A while ago Chris went to have his stem cells removed and frozen so he could have chemo to fight Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Now that the therapy is over he has had the cells replaced. However that means he will be in Boston for a while and I am sure he would love to hear from his friends. His family is taking turns going up to stay with him.

You can send cards and letters to: Chris Look 3rd, P.O. Box 1336, Edgartown, MA 02539.

The 4-6-8 Court Street Fourth Annual Reunion Celebration was held at the Kisko/DeCarion residence this year. Besides the traditional indulgence in local seafood and farm produce and of course wine to clear the palate, reunion participants donned their favorite T-shirts for this elaborate affair. Judges Kisko and DeCarion awarded the following: Third place was a tie to Maureen Gordon and Marie Wholley. Second place went to Tom Gordon. The grand prize went to Norm Wholley. What a good time they had and they can’t wait until next year.

If you have seen Doris Ward these past few weeks you would have noticed her in fast track (more than usual.) She had been preparing for her annual Kentuckian reunion. These women have been friends since kindergarten in Kentucky and have all kept in touch through the years. They are known as Flamingo Power as they knew that is tacky and they know they are. In celebration Bob Yapp, Edgartown School industrial arts teacher, made a 10-foot flamingo to grace the opening of the tent. It was surrounded by many little flamingos.

Those who attended the reunion was Carlene and Tom Pope, Scotty and Doug Van Hook, John and Julie Morris, Maureen and David Brown, Carolyn Hood, and of course Doris and Doug Ward. They had a grand time and Doris is already focusing on next year.

A lot of weddings still are going on and I wish you all good weather and a long and happy life together.

Have a great week and keep the home candles burning.
