Well, Boston broke its record, but I have not heard anything about our record. I think if we took a poll nobody would argue this has been the snowiest winter in a long time. However, I have been enjoying the sun that we have had and the little warm weather that came along with it.

Happy birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week. Big balloons go out to Brianna Oliveira, who celebrated March 17; Riley Jackson, March 18; Rachel Fish, March 19, and to Mackenzie Duart, who celebrates her day on Friday, March 20.

Even with spring officially starting this weekend, Edgartown had its spring begin this week. The Wharf reopened its doors after a month of revamping and getting some R and R. But now that they are back open, it means that trivia is back on Wednesday nights. It is a fun time and a night out to eat and test your brain power, and keep the cobwebs out of the winter brain. It starts at 7:30.

But Tuesday was the big day for young and old as the Dairy Queen officially opened its doors for the summer.

There was the march of the kids from the school to the Dairy Queen. There were groups of kids from all ages and the parents that picked up their kids went right there. When I went by, there was not that long of a line, but the place was crowded.

Sandra Alestra and Dennis Rogers are once again the proud grandparents of a grandson. Maverick (Mav) Frederick Coyne entered this world on Saturday, Feb. 28, at 7:05 p.m., weighing in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces and 22 inches long at Mount Auburn Hospital. His very proud parents are Matt and Karen (Rogers) Coyne. Congratulations to all.

Community Services’s Daybreak Clubhouse presents a classical piano performance by Charles Whitehead at the Old Whaling Church on Saturday, March 28, at 4 p.m. All proceeds from the performance will benefit Daybreak; tickets are $15 general admission and $10 for students and seniors.

The goal is to sell 150 to 200 tickets. Any individual or business selling 20 or more tickets by the 20th of March will be listed in the supporters section of the program that will be distributed that day, and on a poster to be displayed at the Clubhouse and Community Services.

Mass Audubon at Felix Neck welcomes Alexandra (Ally) Ferland to the Felix Neck staff. Ally is Felix Neck’s new education assistant, and will work closely with Josey Kirkland, education coordinator, to provide nature education programming to students in the Island school system. She will also lead public programs for the community at the sanctuary during the summer season.

Ally will be heading up the Nursery School Naturalist program for preschoolers beginning April 2. This program runs every other Thursday from April 2 to June 11 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Participants will look for signs of spring and watch the season unfold through stories, crafts, walks, live animal presentations and more. The program is for ages 3 to 5 with a parent/friend, $6 per child for members of Mass Audubon and $9 per session for nonmembers.

Have a great week and keep the home candles burning.
