The Week Ahead: Friday, February 20 through Thursday, February 26, 2015
February 20, 2015
The Week Ahead brings with it winter break for Island schools. Traditionally one of the quietest weeks of the year on Martha’s Vineyard, this one promises to be no different with families heading ‘off’ for annual visits to grandparents, friends and loved ones, to seek out some sunshine or to head for the nearby slopes. But for those of us who will pass the week at home, there are still stirrings throughout the Island to tempt us out into the cold to have some fun. Enjoy the Week Ahead!
