We have been lucky that we have had sunshine, beautiful skies and a nice breeze. We couldn’t ask for any better. Plus we are still able to sleep at night because it has been cool enough.

Happy Birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week. Big balloons go out to Anna Miller, who celebrated on June, 11; Bernardo dos Reis and Kingsley Sees, who celebrated on June 12; Ana Amaral-Espinoza on June 13; Christopher Greene, Brooke Roten and Zeke Thibodeau on June 14, and to Calvin Brown and Kayra Carlos, who celebrate their day on June 17.

Congratulations to the Class of 2022. This was the first celebration at the Tabernacle in two years. I personally did not go to the actual ceremony but I watched it live on YouTube. It was like having a front row seat. As I watched them go across the stage, I suddenly realized my class reunion this year is our fiftieth. I wondered where these graduates will be in fifty years and what the world will be like. Whatever it is I wish them the best in the next phase of their lives.

Registration is open for Island Grown Initiative’s summer community-supported agriculture (CSA) program. The summer CSA runs from June 16 to Oct. 27. CSA members pick up produce and eggs each week at the farm on Thursdays from 1 to 5:30 p.m. By becoming a CSA member, you provide yourself with fresh local produce and help support local farming and community food distribution. Half of what is grown is delivered to schools, elder services, the Food Pantry and more. See the website to register and start enjoying the weekly harvests: igimv.org.

The library has its summer programs lining up. Make sure you check their website for their newsletter. I am personally looking forward to the lawn concerts usually held on Tuesday nights.

The lines are getting longer and the traffic is more and more each day. I know I can usually get to work within 10 minutes and now it is more like 15 to 20. Plus, you now have to have eyes in all directions between the joggers, bikes and walkers. I am not complaining but it is a whole new regime after the winter.

Congratulations to the Edgartown School eighth grade class that graduates on Friday, June 17. I will miss some of the faces I know will be going to the high school next year because they walk by my house daily.

I want to wish all you special men out there a very Happy Father’s Day. I hope you get to do whatever activities you like to do and enjoy your day.

Have a great week and keep the home candles burning.
