The 35th annual Art Buchwald Possible Dreams Auction will be held on Sunday, July 28 at the Winnetu Oceanside Resort in Edgartown.

The doors open at 3:45 p.m., the silent auction will begin at 4 p.m. and the live auction with auctioneer Jimmy Tingle will begin at 5 p.m. There will be a bar and food available during the auction.

Tom and Cindy Dourmashkin are vacationing with their family at the Dourmashkin summer home on Moshup Trail. Tom and Cindy have been coming to Aquinnah every summer for the past 44 years. His parents Dr. Leonard and Bernice Dourmashkin first came to the Vineyard in 1960 when their children could gleefully hitchhike about the Vineyard. Tom and Cindy’s children, Jordan, Caitin, and Susannah are all here along with Jordan’s wife Danielle and their children Chloe, Leah and Isabel. Galen Summer and Ryan Greendyk are accompanying Caitlin and Susannah. The house on Moshup’s Trail and the beach in front are filled with many happy memories of family, sunsets and seagulls on the deck, along with summer feasts and so much fun.

Did you see Ernie Garvin Jr. and his wife Denise up-Island this week? I was delighted to see them on Tuesday while at the Chilmark Church for lobster rolls (THE BEST!). They also visited with family in Aquinnah that evening. Ernie and I worked together many years ago in the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital pharmacy. He is still a pharmacist in Texas where they moved 23 years ago. And now, 19 grandchildren later, Denise enjoys the rewards of being a grandmother rather than a nurse.
