The Mercerversary

There were long-time residents, funny hats and picnic blankets at Sunday’s Mercerversary celebrating The Island’s 50th year as an incorporated entity.

Jean McTavish, who first moved to the Island with her father in 1942 and lived north of the East Channel Bridge.

It was at Mercerdale Park. “I was standing here remembering when there were tennis courts here,” said Maretta Holder, who’s been on the Island since 1970.

Maretta Holder and her amazing backpack– ask her about it if you see her.

Good weather, good music, good 50 years. Thanks to the organizers!
