The following was submitted by Donna Corey of the Block Island Residents Association:

Responding to a number of nominations, the Block Island Residents Association is proud to recognize Gary and Bonny Ryan for the 2019 Island Treasure Award.

Over many years, they have selflessly and tirelessly volunteered their care and expertise with the Block Island community. Serving on many boards and committees they have made a substantial difference on the island, through the Town Council, Rescue Squad, and the Medical Center board, just to name a few.

The community is invited to honor them at the Block Island Residents Association annual meeting on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Block Island Maritime Institute Education Center on Ocean Avenue.

More information on this event will follow.
