Cranberry Isles: Stories of island living sought

The past week has been very quiet on the Cranberry Isles. The weather has been relatively calm and several families have been out of town for the holidays. While temperatures dipped below 20 degrees, many days were bright and there were no boat cancellations.

Remember, Islesford Book Club is set to meet on Jan. 2 at 2 p.m. in the library. Everyone is invited to read “The Storied Life of AJ Fikry” by Gabrielle Zevin and to join the discussion.

The Great Cranberry Island Historical Society is inviting contributions to the upcoming exhibit “Faces and Places: Great Cranberry in the 21st Century.” The society is interested in stories of today’s islanders, their families, houses, businesses and island connections.
