For such a small community, we have a fair number of community events to keep us busy. Some of these, like trivia night at the pub and library time, are regular weekly events. There are always some extra events as well, like last month’s myriad of Halloween themed parties. This month is no exception. Already, there are several fun events open to the public. On November 4th evening, the Protection Island library is proud to sponsor the book launch of “Dancing Hand” written by islander David Essig. On Saturday November 9th, DIGS community garden society is hosting a Buddy Holly night which will include a screening of The Buddy Holly Story followed by a 50s dance, an auction of garlic from the garden, and prized for the best costume. Good old-fashioned community fun! As always, our local (and only) pub will offer several nights of live music. On November 6th, local folk-ish musicians Alex Wickett, Alex Hicks, and Noah Edwards will play. On November 12th, a country set will feature Beth Anderson, Lee Billwiller, and David Braun.
There is a great concert coming up on Protection Island this Thursday evening (Sept. 12th) featuring four different acts:
- Blue Sky Miners
- Running Red Lights
- John Pippus
- John Gogo (an island resident)
The show is at Beacon House which is our community hall at the south end of the island. Doors open at 6pm (come early and socialize) and the music starts at 7. The show is over by 9:30 in time for town folks to catch the 10pm ferry leaving PI.
Tickets are $15 per adult (kids under 12 free). Contact us on the reservation inquiry page for information about obtaining tickets.
