As usual there were lots of celebrity cameos in the Super Bowl commercials this year — Martha Stewart, John Travolta, Kyle Busch, Carl Weathers. There was also a familiar Vineyard face: Emma Lovewell.

2020

Betsy Burmeister is the director of recreation at Windemere Nursing Home, a job she has held for 25 years.
Gretchen Snyder is a second and third grade teacher at the Chilmark School.
Jeremy Bradshaw is the Chilmark fire chief.

Branimira (Bianca) Milkova is a cashier at Cronig’s.

Ms. Milkova is from Bulgaria and has worked at Cronig’s for about 10 years. Usually, she is a fixture at the up-Island store in West Tisbury but when that store shut down last month to consolidate the business during the pandemic she started working at the Vineyard Haven store.

“It’s different there,” she said. “At up-Island it feels like a family with my regular customers.”

Belle Dinning is an emergency medical technician for the Oak Bluffs fire department. She also works part-time as an EMT in Tisbury and part-time at the hospital.

Ms. Dinning said that when emergency medical crews go out on calls, for the safety of the team they treat it as if everyone has Covid-19 until proven otherwise. EMTs are dressed in full protective gear, and if anyone is experiencing respiratory symptoms, they dress in a full hazmat suit with “goggles, glasses, masks, the whole deal.”
