2013 Neighborhood Convention

This year Chilmark  hosted Neighborhood Convention with a program at the Yard Dance Residence followed by a service at the church and bag lunch in the Fellowship Hall.  Sophia Anthony read an article from the 1908 Vineyard Gazette which described the Neighborhood Convention held that May in Gay Head.  People arrived by horse and wagon, some traveling 4 hours from Vineyard Haven.  This day it only took 20 minutes from Vineyard Haven and there were Grace Church members and U U members to attest to it.  Also other houses of worship were represented.

David Smith gave opening remarks at the Yard.

Jessie Keller narrated and danced the great program.

Bakers and waitresses, Marilyn Hollishead, Ann Deitrich, Dianne Holt and Pam Goff set up the lunch.

Arlene ran themonthly meeting.
