Former President Swings

To Island for Day of Golf

Former President Bill Clinton was on-Island yesterday for a spot of golf, among other orders of business, according to sources.

Mr. Clinton arrived early Monday by plane, carrying a bag of golf clubs, and was expected to fly out late last night. Neither his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, nor his daughter, Chelsea, was travelling with him.

A six-time Vineyard visitor as commander in chief, Mr. Clinton has travelled to the Island regularly in the years following his presidency to attend the Agricultural Fair, which runs this year from August 20 to 23, and to celebrate his birthday, which falls on August 19.

The Clintons have denied rumors that Chelsea Clinton would marry on the Vineyard this month.
