The Week Ahead: Friday, August 4 through Thursday, August 10, 2017
August 4, 2017
Tours of all sorts mark the Week Ahead, buttressed of course by explorations of other sorts through books, workshops and gallery openings. It’s August on Martha’s Vineyard and the sheer number of events and activities available to visitors and Islanders alike is almost mind-numbing. What follows is truly just the tip of the sno-cone. Think of it as only a taste of all the good things on offer in the Week Ahead! (In other news: What so many of us have been waiting for – Island corn now at Morning Glory Farm!)
