The Week Ahead: Friday, February 23 through Thursday, March 1, 2018

February 23, 2018

Come to the Island in the Week Ahead and you’re in for a rare sight: cars cruise through 5 Corners all but unimpeded, post offices are emptied, and you can grab groceries and be back in your car before the engine cools.  It’s school vacation week, a time when many families seize the opportunity to head ‘off’ for warm weather destinations or wintry fun, family visits and other adventures not to be had at home on Martha’s Vineyard.   Though of course, we don’t all leave.  Some of us stay to savor the quiet, reconnect with one another and enjoy a staycation before March signals the start of a new season that barrels towards summer. There may not be as many of us around, but none the less there’s no lack of activities to enjoy in the Week Ahead!
