After a 2-week respite activities have once again kept us all busy. Thank you to Pat Landurand for hosting a very successful Food Sale on the 11th and thanks to her able bodied assistants Ginny Rush, Gail Ross, Connie Saindon, Leslie Whitehouse, Roseanne Bourassa, Kate Turpie and Cindy Raposa.
The Hamblett Family Cooked up a storm on Saturday morning and treated us all to some delicious pancakes. Suzie’s assistants were her husband Pete, her son Andy and daughter in law Meaghan Andy and Meaghan Hamblett, daughter Leslie Gamache and Robert and Maureen Driscoll. The wait staff performed so professionally and they included Jonathan and Luke Yerral, Luke and Zack Arnpriester, Katy Lindley, Al Dawson, and Jefferson, Caroline, Luke and Dylan Driscoll.
Matt and Kathy Lindley were instrumental in providing us with a fantastic Porch Party, our second of the season. We thoroughly enjoyed great food and spirited conversation.
Liz and Paul Holland along with Kate Dawson served up burgers and hotdogs at our Ball Game Grill on Sunday with a big crowd in attendance. Thank you to all of these Ocean Pointers for providing us with some fabulous activities!

Saturday morning we will gather at the Casino for our Annual Meeting beginning promptly at 9:30. If you have not paid your membership you will have the opportunity to do so from 8:30-9:15 on that morning.

The Card Cove Association letter has been delivered to Ocean Pointers reminding us of our contribution to the organization in maintaining the dock.
Many Ocean Pointers are back vacationing, so good to see the Gamache Family, Yerrall Family, Slayton Family, Arnpriester Family, Lindleys and Rush’s to name just a few. It was wonderful to see the Pike/Ripley Family all gathered to celebrate the life of Lee Ripley last weekend.
Enjoy the great weather, and the last days of activities. Have a great week!
