Got a minute?
Here’s what’s happening on Martha’s Vineyard today.
Today is International Museum Day, which has been recognized since 1977 as a way to promote the benefits these wonderful institutions provide. We can’t mention Museum Day without giving props to the Martha’s Vineyard Museum, where they currently have a scrimshaw exhibit. There’s also the Aquinnah Cultural Center on the Island, which provides a history of the Aquinnah Wampanoag tribe. Plus there’s the Carnegie Heritage Center and the Mariposa Museum & World Culture Center. If your friend sent you this, sign up for yourself here.

Home Business Opportunity, Vineyard Haven Sponsored

Excellent occasion to increase your business exposure or start a new one in a desirable, active, commercial location. This property offers a lot of flexibility for a buyer to expand the existing building or reorganize it to suit a different business. A new owner could build their own residence on-site as well as run a business. A super opportunity for employee housing as well. The property is insulated and ready to use year-round with a new HVAC system in 2023. Plenty of parking for residential and business use. Septic would allow for 5 bedrooms. A new owner could install an enhanced system for greater bedroom count. Don’t miss this rare offering for a commercial location in Tisbury.
Quote of the Day
"This came up because I was completely confused by everything that has happened over the last month, with towns rejecting the budget because of the legal expenses, and my erroneous understanding was the school committee was listening to the people and going to move to grass. But as I’m reading further and further into it, they’re not doing that at all, and I don’t think they’re listening."
— Chilmark resident Sheila Muldaur on her citizens petition that she is proposing for a special town meeting in Chilmark.

Hot Topic Comment
James Klingensmith comments on our coverage of a petition article calling for only grass fields at the Vineyard regional high school: "It does not make sense that the High School talks about caring for the youth of Martha’s Vineyard and wants to put in turf that could potentially put the entire island at risk by contaminating our water supply.

Hot Topic Letter
Susanna Sturgis, chair of the West Tisbury Task Force Against Discrimination, writes to us about allegations that Lambert’s Cove Beach is not open to all: "If you’d bothered to check the Diversity Statement that created the Task Force, you would have learned that the Task Force focuses on diversity involving "race, color, religious creed, national origin, ancestry, gender, age, economic status, disability, gender identity and sexual orientation."
Today: Are you looking to get some fresh fits for the season? Maybe you want to do a little closet cleaning and reduce clutter.

It’s wine season at Little House Cafe, and they’re offering a four-course French Burgundy wine dinner with Sipping Sense from 6:30 to 8 pm. The dinner cuisine includes dessert, all paired with wines from Burgundy, France. Attendance for this classy experience is limited by Little House’s quaint space, so check pricing and make your reservations by calling ahead.
Tomorrow: This year’s Spirit of the Vineyard Award will be presented to Richard Leonard for his work in Habitat for Humanity and the Lion’s Club, where he helped find funding for the Dukes County Housing Authority’s first project at Sepiessa Point in West Tisbury.
