Yes, it is August ... and on the Island it means several things. Activity level has exploded - well, Island Style that is - for what I see as the last real burst of Summer fun up here. I hasten to add great things are coming; there is just a different seasonal "tinge".
• Gibson Family Celebration!
Significant Island events are often communicated by Boxholders - a full or half page announcement often produced by the Observer Newspaper staff and distributed by mail to every "mailbox" on the Island. We received one Saturday which was just so neat. As is widely known, an early morning fire last November 4th significantly damaged West Harbor Resort. Since then the Gibson Family - as well as the Island community - has rallied in their own spirited way. To celebrate the restoration, the family will host an open house at the Resort from 5 - 8 pm on August 12th. Needless to say, Boxholders can bring mighty good news.
