People knew that this meant we were now in a state of war! It was quiet and chilly that fateful Sunday on the Vineyard: Frank Adams, on Music Street, had started his coal furnace for the first time since March; Donaldson's Garage was about to receive its monthly shipment of gasoline from the Mobil terminal in Vineyard Haven Monday morning; and Antone Campbell was preparing to milk his cows. Many families had cut a proper Christmas tree and had prepared their parlors to receive guests that afternoon. The at- tack was announced over CBS radio by John Chades Daly at about 2:30 p.m. As evening fell people kept their radios on to learn more news from Pearl Harbor. Plans were made for the president to address Congress the next day shortly after noontime to declare war on Japan. The school would hold a special assem- bly at noon so the students could listen to his address to the nation. On Friday Dec. 12,1941, four days after entering World War II, the Town Civil Defense Committee held a rally at the Town Hall in North Tisbury.

SLATER 508-645-3378 ( Chilmark is a busy place and most of the activity has nothing to do with seasonal holidays. Many of our friends and neighbors are hard at work on committees and commissions that are meeting nightly at the town hall to deal with town business. This is the month when the deadlines for real estate taxes, warrant articles, financial reports, bud- gets and end of year reports are due from the sub-structure of the town government. There are eight to 10 major committees with seven members and many more with three to five members -- all volunteers who care enough about Chilmark to show up and take part. The regular meetings are open to the public and take place at the town hall. Listings for meetings and details up for discus- sion can be found at the town website: And, as if to make the town hall a more welcoming place, a number of the blue ground flowers in the parking lot are in bloom! More good news coming from Chil- mark is that the scallop season is, so far, a good one. The commercial fishermen are working hard.., and this weather helps! I call your attention to a public hear- ing scheduled by the planning board on Dec. 17 at 4:30 p.m. to discuss the proposed bylaw regarding the size of houses to be built in Chilmark. All are welcome to attend and address the subject. The community center is a busy place this time of year. There will be a holiday flea market on Dec. 15 featuring an as- sortment of vendors selling gifts, trea- sures, crafts and foods for your holiday enjoyment. The Chilmark Community Church is sponsoring the sale, and An- nette Anthony is the go-to person for renting space or other questions. Her phone number is 774-563-0016. The lunch will be provided by Dee Smith of Savory Pies, a popular Chilmark busi- ness. The Chilmark Firefighters Associa- tion will host the annual Santa visit to the community center on Dec. 19 at 5:30 p.m. All Chilmark children are welcome.

This year his work includes small and affordable gifts items, many featuring up-Island images. The show is open during regu- lar bank hours all month. The Minnesingers are preparing for their annual winter concert under the direction of Jan Wightman. They will present their concert at the Old Whal- ing Church in Edgartown at 8 p.m. on Dec. 7, and at the same place on Dec. 8 at 4 p.m. The Minnesingers are traveling to Croatia in April, where we know they will be well-received. Although it is December, the tem- perature as I write is 51 degrees. There is a big blue hydrangea in full bloom in front of Barn Again on D.H.'s Hill, and there are many birds chirping at dawn -- all features of a different season of the year .. let's hope global warming is something we can all live with! Honor Society lustine Tucker of West Tisbury has been inducted into Ithaca College's Or- acle Honor Society. First-year students who maintain a grade point average that puts them in the top 10 per cent of their school throughout their first full academic year are invited into the soci- ety.
