Bricks for sale
To the Editor:
When the Old Harbor Task Force met recently, the committee approved rearranging some of the blank bricks around the edge of the terrace of The Mary D. Park to allow for the sale of additional engraved bricks. The bottom line is we have around 35 or so more bricks to “sell.”
Just wanted to keep you updated as we have had requests this summer to purchase engraved bricks to be placed in the park. FYI: No change in cost: still $200. Bricks this summer will be placed in The Mary D. Park in the late fall.
Please email me if you have questions and to receive an order form.

Margie Comings, Chair
Old Harbor Task Force


Thank you…

To the Editor:

We would like to thank all who donated clothing and attended our sales at the Not New Boutique. This was a difficult summer trying to do everything right for our help and our customers. We had such a great group of volunteers and also had a lot of fun.

We ended up with a very successful summer.

Thanks go out to our volunteers: Jean and Peter Johnson, Jean and Dan Larkin, Sandy Kelly, Kathy Crocker and Dennis Valade, Hobbit Hubbard, Ann Henault, Denise Filippi, Madeline Burns, Jim Deskin and to Mary and Marguerite Donnelly for their support.

To the Editor:

Golf is one game that can be played while effectively social distancing, and so the Block Island Lions Club was able to hold its September fundraising tournament at the Beaver River Golf Course recently. It was a perfect day on Monday, Sept. 14, as golfers took to the links to raise money for the Club’s Scholarship Fund.

There were some highlights: Dave Mac’s Hole-In-One; Chris Robb’s Closestto-the-Pin; and Lee Rapp’s Longest Drive. The winning team was Bill Somagio, Dave Baurdeau, Matt West and Hal Panciera from Westerly. Block Island’s own Tammy Tyler was our lone woman golfer for this tournament.

Each year a graduating Block Island School senior is awarded a scholarship and will continue to receive money for three additional years if the student remains in good academic standing. For the past two years, the fund has been able to award two scholarships to deserving seniors.

This would not be possible without the support of the golfers and the tee sponsors: Block Island Plumbing and Heating, Star Department Store, New England Airlines, Ballard Hall Real Estate, Sullivan Real Estate, Block Island Realty, Beach Real Estate, Phillips Real Estate, Offshore Property, Block Island Reservations, Mike Tripp CPA, North Atlantic Builders, Heinz Group, Stix-Man Construction, Jarrosak Woodwrights Ltd., Doug Michel Construction, VAL Construction, JEM Construction, McPick, Johnson Electric, Tyler Electric, Red Bird Liquor Store, Sarah Szabo of New York Life Insurance, Billeri & McGarry Insurance Co., Block Island Recycling Management, Arnold Lumber, The National Hotel, Block Island Sports Shop, Hull Suburban Propane, The Oar, Kimberly’s, Payne’s Dock, BI Fishworks, Capt. Nick’s, The Beachead, Block Island Linen Rental and Willow Grove.

Interstate Navigation deserves special thanks for providing free round-trip transportation on the ferry for both the July and September tournaments. Their continued generosity has proved to be invaluable to our fund.

The support of all those involved is appreciated by the Committee members.

Thank you.
