The following was submitted by the Block Island Residents Association:

Responding to an overwhelming number of nominations, the Block Island Residents Association is proud to recognize Senior Advisory Committee volunteers Sandra Kelly, Janet Merritt and Linda Spak for this year’s Island Treasure Award.

With the full support of their board, the three have worked tirelessly since 2010 to initiate and maintain an online communications network — the Block Island Bulletin Board — for the benefit of the island community. Their determination and efforts have had a broad and far-reaching effect on all who live or regularly visit here. The success of the program has been widely heralded by all who have tapped this invaluable, local resource.

The community is invited to honor them at the Block Island Residents Association annual meeting on Sept. 16 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Block Island Maritime Institute Education Center on Ocean Avenue.

More information on this event will follow.
