Congratulations and all the best to now-retired Aquinnah fire chief Walter E. Delaney, who officially welcomed his retirement on Oct. 31 after serving the town of Aquinnah for the past 17 years. Thank you, Walter, for your dedication and commitment to the town.

A reception is being planned for the near future for retired chief Delaney. James Vercruysse is the acting Aquinnah fire chief for the present, until the position is advertised and a new chief is hired.

Congratulations to Aretha Witham Brown and her daughter, Fiona, and to Antone Dias, Jannette Vanderhoop and their daughter, Oceana, on their new homes at Middle Line in Chilmark. They are now neighbors in one of the new duplex homes, Aretha and Jannette having been friends since infancy in Aquinnah as they were born five days apart at Martha‘s Vineyard Hospital. Middle Line is now the home of 11 families who have moved in over the past week to a very nice area in Chilmark.

Get-well wishes to Tom Seeman, who underwent orthopedic surgery in Manhattan this week and expects to return to his Aquinnah home by the weekend.

Condolences to the family and friends of Adelbert “Buddy” Sylvia, who passed away this week at his home in Edgartown. Buddy and his wife, Gloria, often worshiped with us in Aquinnah as he was one of the deacons at the First Baptist Church. He will also be remembered for his many kindnesses in assisting elders, especially with their ancient stoves that needed maintenance as he was the only one around to do so.

Gladys Widdiss continues to celebrate throughout the week with more cards, another cake shared with her son, Donald, and Amanda, her son, Carl, and Pam and yours truly. The beautiful basket of autumn treasures was a gift from Debbie Hancock. Her celebration included many beautiful cards and remembrances of her special day, as well as the installation of a generator for the impending winter storms. A great way to celebrate. Gladys, the valedictorian of Tisbury High School Class of 1932, will also look forward to her 80th class reunion with her only surviving classmate, S. David Cronig.

Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 2 a.m., so please remember to set your clocks back one hour.

Be mindful of our veterans on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. They will mark the day with a parade in Oak Bluffs beginning at Our Market at 10:45 a.m. and continuing to Ocean Park for services. In Tisbury the Avenue of Flags at Oak Grove Cemetery will be flown from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers for the flags are always needed at both times. Honor those of the United States Marine Corps as they observe the anniversary of the corps on Nov. 10.

The northeaster over the weekend certainly left a lot of debris along the roads with sand, branches and leaves redecorating the highways and byways. Temperatures have remained in the 50s throughout the week with freezing on a few nights and frost on the pumpkins. Thank you to one and all who invited trick-or-treaters to their homes on Monday evening. Having a list of those who wanted to participate made it so much easier for everyone.

The tents of Occupy Wall Street in Government Center in Boston looked tempting while I was there for appointments this past week. However, with the freezing temperatures, they have probably disappeared by now.

Happy Birthday wishes this week to Kayla Foster, who celebrated a major milestone on Nov. 3. Melissa Vanderhoop Abram and Cheryl Holenko will party on Nov. 4.
