Ocean Point Column
By Maryellen Bertrand
Those of us fortunate enough to be at the Point this past weekend were treated with truly spectacular weather, bright blue skies, calm seas and plenty of sunshine; a recipe for a great weekend.
The floats have been towed to the dock and are waiting to be reconnected and boats are beginning to reappear on their moorings. The Inn is scheduled to reopen on Friday May 26 for dinner and breakfast will be served beginning Saturday; the East Boothbay General Store is now open on Sundays.
There is important news regarding the defibrillator that hung at the Casino; it has been moved to the Inn in order to accommodate both Ocean Pointers and Inn guests in the event it is needed. The defibrillator will be installed just outside the lobby door next to the vending machines.
Tom McGonegal has turned on the Wi-Fi at the Casino for those who need access to the Internet; Tom cautions everyone that it is not a secured site.
Tom and Tish shared a joyful occasion with their family recently; their grandson Brendan received his first Holy Communion. Brendan is the son of Tom and Alexa.
After a challenging winter for Jean and John Webster they also shared some happy events; three of their grandchildren recently graduated. Ethan graduated from George Washington University, his sister Nicole graduated from Pierce High School in Dallas and will be attending the University of Kansas majoring in Art. Nicole was selected as a top ten emerging artist in the Dallas area. Both Ethan and Nicole are the children of Stephen and Theresa Webster.
Their cousin Ava has graduated from Kirkwood High School in St. Louis and will enter Tulane University in the fall. Ava was Editor in chief of her high school yearbook. Ava is the daughter of Kim (Webster) and Michael Godsy.
Kelsey Bennett graduated from The University of New England receiving her Master’ Degree in Occupational Therapy with inter-professional education honors distinction. Congratulations to all of our Ocean Point graduates who have accomplished so much in such a short time.
Please plan on attending our Town Hall Meeting on Sunday May 28 beginning at 4. Nick Arno our new AD and his wife Karen will be here to meet Ocean Pointers so come a bit early to introduce yourself.
I hope to see many of you this weekend, travel safe and have a great week!
