On Saturday, April 12, we were blessed with yet another sunny, successful electronics disposal day here at Martha’s Vineyard Community Services.

We appreciate everyone who came out and helped us raise funds for all of our programs here at Community Services; we thank the staff, board and community for supporting our agency and for dumping their electronics responsibly.

A heartfelt thanks to Bruno’s and especially Scott Carroll, who truly put more than his fair share of energy into the day — helping us to streamline and organize prior to the event as well as sticking with us all day long to ensure items were disposed of correctly.

Thank you as well to Community Corrections (thanks to Brian Kennedy), the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School boys hockey team (thanks to Coach Matt Mincone), those who came from the youth sports programs (thanks to Coach Sterling Bishop), those from Saturday School (thanks to Matt Malowski), members of the tribal youth program (thanks to June Manning), and our fabulous board (John Kennedy, Wiet Bacheller, Bob Egerton Jr., June Manning, Dianne Durawa and Sandy Pimentel) and staff members (Mary Korba, Meredith Magin, Jennifer Neary, Pam Holmlund, Alicia Nicholson, Liz Burnham, and Amy Custis), many of whom brought significant others, friends and/or their children or grandchildren to assist as well.

A huge thank you from the entire agency.
