Ocean Point Column
By Maryellen Bertrand
This past week was a bit quiet with just the regular weekly activities being held, next week we will resume with special events.
Thank you to Maureen Driscoll and Liz Holland for a wonderful family beach picnic held on the 24th and to Sue Clark for an incredibly informative tour of the Grimes Cove area on the 26th. If you do not have a copy of Sue’s book,” Past Images” it is well worth purchasing and makes a great gift; her book is currently being sold at EBGS and the Ocean Point Inn.
Mark your calendars for the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Wilson Memorial Chapel to be held on Sunday August 6th at 1:30 P.M. with a reception to follow, all are welcome. That morning Rev. Bradbury J. Mitchell Minister Emeritus, Unitarian Universalist Church, Brunswick Maine will conduct regular Sunday Services at the usual time of 9:30.
Mary Rush and Sarah Dawson will host the next Family Beach Picnic on Monday August 7th at Grimes Cove. You are asked to bring your own food and come join the fun.
Mexican Train Game is on the schedule for Wednesday August 9 and is being organized by Connie Saindon. I personally have never played this game but I’m told it is a great time, so please join Connie for this event.
Unfortunately, the Clamshell Golf Tournament had to be cancelled as many of our Ocean Point golfers who would normally play have scheduling conflicts and are not available on that day.
The August vacation crowd is beginning to arrive; Rick and Claudette Ford are here at their cottage and are enjoying the beautiful weather. Rick and Claudette’s son Ben recently graduated from U Mass Boston, Magna Cum Laude, with a degree in Environmental Science. Ben is working for the Army Corps of Engineers.
It is great to see David Ripley and his wife Pam of Houston Texas vacationing in the Merton Cottage.
Many of the Hamblett Family, Andy and Meaghan and John and Barb and their children are here enjoying the great boating weather with Suzie and Pete. They will be hosting the second Pancake Breakfast in the middle of this month that will be more details in next week’s column.
I want to again remind Ocean Pointers regarding membership dues. If you plan to vote at the Annual Meeting on August 19 then your membership must be current and your dues paid, preferably before that date. Our Treasurer Jen Klein will accept dues the morning of the meeting but you must come early in order to do that.
Enjoy the beautiful weather and have a great week!
