Congratulations and all the best to Jesse Wiener as he graduated Thursday from Harvard University. Jesse and Maggie will be moving to Manhattan over the weekend to begin their rewarding careers.

All the best to Margaret (Peg) Regan as she departs as principal of the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School at the end of this school year. She has always been responsive to the needs of the students over her nine years as principal. In the coming years, perhaps she will sit back and continue to view the accomplishments of the children she assisted along the way.

Kristina Kestenbaum Leslie returned home Sunday after attending training in Santa Fe, N.M., for a week. She then traveled on to Los Angeles, Calif., for a one-week visit with her daughters Samantha and her husband Clifford, Jennifer and her husband Doug, and grandsons Maxum and Charlie.

Corinna Majno and her husband Ken Kauffman are at the Devine Homestead on Mariner’s Way for the week. They are looking for assistance while they finish the spring painting. If you are interested, please stop by. They are gracious hosts and may even share a pie or two from Pies to Go which they purchase from Luther and Anne Madison and share with their friends and neighbors. Corinna and I discussed the new home being built between her home and mine. It is anticipated that the echoes will return to Echo Hill as they have been absent during the winter.

Chief F. Ryan Malonson returned home on Sunday after attending the graduation ceremony for his nephew Micah Washington at Marvelwood School in Kent, Conn.

Av Morrow has recently published his latest book, Things You Can’t Make a Mistake Doing. It is a little red book and two of the passages include “writing things down so you don’t forget” and “watching a sunset or a sunrise.” A wonderful book with Av’s words of wisdom and lessons to practice on a daily basis.

Juleann VanBelle, R.N. will be at the town hall today from noon to 3 p.m. Please stop by and discuss your medical issues and concerns with Juleann.

Please mark your calendars for June 19 at 7:15 p.m. for the special town meeting, which will conclude the items on the agenda of the annual town meeting that were not attended to due to lack of a quorum. One of the issues will be to lower the quorum from 10 per cent down to 5 per cent so that 20 people (or rather 19.5 people) would then make the decisions for the town and how to best spend nearly $3 million on an annual basis. Remember: democracy is not a spectator sport.
