I think spring is on delay until summer. We have sun then clouds, some threats of rain and all the while it has only been in the sixties. I think we all know what is going to happen and that it will be cold one day and the next it will be in the eighties for the rest of the summer. We will see.

Happy birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week. Big balloons go out to Joana Torres, who celebrated her day June 9, and to Rose Levesque who celebrated June 10.

First I have to congratulate the MVRHS class of 2018 on their graduation this past Sunday. Once again I have watched kids of kids graduating.

I will also say congratulations to the Edgartown eighth graders who will be graduating today, Friday, June 15.

The Island is getting busier. I went on an errand and the traffic was up to Shady Oak Lane and people were trying to cut through all the short cuts available.

It was funny because I had two customers come into the nursery to get plants for their decks and planters. They were a couple of hours apart but both said the same thing. They had just arrived on Island and had not even been home or to the grocery store but they had to stop and get their plants. Shows you how much pretty pots and flowers welcome you home.

This past Monday afternoon, June 11, there was a softball game put together by Max Sherman, to raise money for the MV Arena in the memory of Coo Cavallo. Coo was among many players that got together every Monday in the summer for a friendly softball game for all ages. There were women, men, teenagers, kids, whoever wanted to play they had room for. This went on for many years but the past few years it has dwindled but thanks to Max we may have an annual softball game. There was a good turnout but it was cancelled from the week before because of weather. The only downside for us Boston fans was that there were N.Y. T-shirts available and worn during the game. Coo was a big New York fan and it is only right for the T-shirts to have New York on them below his name. Thanks Max and we look forward to next year.

ACE MV invites you to Charting Courses, an evening celebrating 10 years of continuing education on Martha’s Vineyard. The event will be on June 23 at the West Chop Club and tickets are available at ticketsmv.com/ace.
