FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2012 VINEYARD GAZETTE, MARTHA'S VINEYARD, MASS. FIVE VINEYARD HAVEN NANCY GARDELLA 508-693-3308 (vhavenvgazette@yahoo.com) You can't tell me you're out there with nothing going on. This is the time of year I especially expect to hear from Islanders about births, visitors, vacations, achievements. True, I missed reminding you of the Big Chili contest, but as usual it was packed and success- ful. Now, call me. I miss you. Debbie Milne wrote a terrific letter published in both Island papers last week lamenting the demise of the early child- hood education program at the high school. The program had worked so closely and so well with the Martha's Vineyard Community Services day care center. I knew the head teachers who ran it over the years, admired their dedication greatly, and knew many of the students young men as well as young women -- who took the course and profited by it. Nothing is more important than the nurturing of the young.These kids gradu- ated as professionals` I agree with Debbie and am sad to see the program go. The usual Tuesday morning story hours at our library have definite themes this month: Feb. 7 is cats; Feb. 14, of course, is Valentine's Day; Feb. 21 is bears, and Feb. 28 is colors.Wii games for tweens and teens are on their usual days and times, Valentines will be a big art project on crafts day.

The first Sunday of the month breakfast will be this Sunday, Feb. 5 from 8 to 10 a.m. Come for the food and friendship. Grownups eat for $7,kids under 12 chow down for $3. I'll see you there.

"We're pleased to let you know that our campaign so far has receNed more than $1.3 million in private dona- tions," said Hunter Moorman, chair of the Foundation. He added, however, that the fund-raising isn't over yet. The campaign must still meet another fund-raising goal: that of the town. "Part of the understanding between the library and the town has always been that the library would contribute no less than $1.5 million, or 25 per cent of the project cost, raised through private donations," said Mr. Moorman. "Only then would the Library Trustees come to the town meeting in April to ask for the town's share of 25 per cent." The Foundation believes it can raise the remaining $200,000 before the annual town meeting. If the town approves its share of the funding, groundbreaking is scheduled for the fall, with the library re-opening in fall or winter of the next year. During construction, the library will operate from temporary quarters. Karin Stanley reports that the West Tisbury Local Historical Commission has completed the West Tisbury His- toric Resource Inventory project begun in 2007. This project, funded through the Community Preservation Act, up- dated and digitized over 300 records of historic properties inventoried by the Historical Commission from 1980 to 2000 that were submitted to the Mas- sachusetts Historical Commission. A professional historic preservation team from the Public Archaeology Lab in Rhode Island was the successful bid- der;to conduct the .upgrade of the re- cords. Digital images were taken of all properties, additional information and historical notes about properties were added to the existing inventory forms, new maps created, and properties eli- gible for National Register status were designated. All of this information now is available online at westtisbury-ma. gov/Boards/loc-hist-comm.html. The West Tisbury historical committee has created a short tutorial on the town Web site on how to access this database. The iifdrmi0n i oatin,ed. iiihg: Histori'lnventbry'was'gather6d over a 40-year period. If anyone has more information about these properties that would be helpful in more accurately documenting the historic record of the town, please e-mail lhc@westtisbury- ma.gov and a member of the West Tisbury historical commission will get back to you. On Feb. 10,1948 at the annual town meeting voters by a wide margin ac- cepted a gift from Donald R. Camp- bell, of Old County Road, of the Mill Pond and the land under it. Ancient records show that because of its central location and water power it not only attracted the farmers with their grain to grind, but it became the site of the only textile mill on the Island. Here the celebrated satinet cloth was woven. It also was a favorite spot for skaters for several generations, who cut figure eights near the light of bonfires kindled on danger spots where the big brook empties into the pond. The acceptance contained a condition; the town must remove the weeds, repair the dam and raise the water level in the pond. After considerable debate a letter from Rev. Thompson, Master of the Grange, was read urging acceptance and pledging their full cooperation and assistance in the clean up. Happy Birthday to: Jeanne Ogden and Brianna Holt, Rita Reynolds, Ja- net Belain and Ken Francis today; Er- nie Chaves, Tom Dresser and Lillian DiMartino tomorrow; Michelle Jasny, Emily Rodegast and Joe Hegarty on Sunday; Maggie Bresnahan and Spen- cer Booker on Monday; Richard Olsen, Ken Campbell, Jean Morton Fisher, Dianne McDonough and Jill Napior on "Ihesday; Beth Carr, Kate Warner, Lind Marshall and Louise Sweet on Wednes- day; Harold Lawry, Alley Estrella and Paul Thurlow on Thursday.

Her husband, Jack, and daughter, Cheryl, were at her side to comfort her in her final hours. She was born on Nov. 6,1947, the oldest of two children of Josephine (Quinn) and Walter Johnson of West Haven, Conn. Marilyn was an adventurous and curious child, ilways one to go her own way, and spent much of her child- hood exploring the outdoors, and often brought home a wide. range of objects that caught her curiosity. She made many pets out of the snakes, frogs and the like that she found. In later years she delighted in teaching her grandchildren the proper technique for catching frogs. Marilyn married early to Albert Peluse of West Haven, Conn., and got about the business of raising her two beautiful children, Robert and Cheryl, who became the joy of her life. After Bobby and Cheryl were well on their way to adulthood, Marilyn started her second life with Jack O'Callaghan, of Ansonia, Conn. Jack and Marilyn went on their first vacation,as a couple to Martha S:Vineyard andas many before them, felt instantly and completely at home in the welcoming embrace of the Island. It wasn't long before they were able to fulfill their dream of moving from Ansonia to Vineyard Haven, which became their happy home of 23 years: Marilyn had a unique talent for deco- rating, both indoors and out. Her home was like an ever-changing boutique, with much of her finds coming from her al- most daily visits to the Vineyard Haven Thrift Shop. Her landscaping skills were equally impressive, and her small stone walls, paths and plantings provided a beautiful year-round setting for all who visited. Her bird feeders and birdbaths were always full and well maintained. She spent many happy hours working in her gardens and watching the many birds that were attracted by her handiwork. Her openness and nonjudgmental manner provided her with many more friends than she could have imagined. All who knew her considered her a friend, and her varied work experience provided fertile ground for the making of those friendships. In addition to being a regular thrift shop devotee, Marilyn worked at several restaurants, including Louis's Tisbury Car6, Le Grenier, and the old Anthony's. She worked at the A&P/Stop&Shop in Vineyard Haven, provided some housecleaning services, and also did a stint in home health care. Marilyn is survived by her husband, Jack, of Vineyard Haven; son Robert Peluse and his wife Melissa of West Ha- ven, Conn.; daughter Cheryl Abboud and her husband Donald of Sainte Cecile de Masham, Quebec, Canada; "second daughter" Jeanne Kendzierski of Ansonia, Conn.; grandchildren Rob- ert Peluse, Marilyn Peluse and Rouge Lane Abboud; brother Walter Johnson Jr. of Milford, Conn.; and mother in law Lorraine O'Callaghan of Oak Bluffs. She was predeceased by her parents, Josephine and Walter Johnson, most recently of Milford, Conn. Donations may be made in her mem- ory to Island Hospice, 765 Attucks Lane, Hyannis, MA 02601 or to the Martha's Vineyard Hospital, EO. Box 1477, Oak Bluffs, MA 02557.
