The Friends of the Mill Pond wish to thank the West Tisbury selectmen’s committee on the Mill Pond for their hard work over the past six years on behalf of the maintenance and care of the town–owned pond. The committee members, Bob Woodruff (chairman), Anna Alley, Barbara Day, Kent Healy, Rez Williams and Craig Saunders have volunteered countless hours and effort studying the two town consultant reports concerning the state and future of the Mill Pond, conducting in situ testing, deliberating and advocating.

Regretfully their efforts to date were not supported by West Tisbury voters at town meeting who narrowly defeated the CPC request for funding the next step toward restoring the pond. Nonetheless, their dedication and commitment deserve to be recognized and praised.

Barbara de Braganca
