Swan’s Island: Yacht club searches for sailboat trailers 

We extend our deepest condolences to the family and many friends of Terie Lynn Laws, who passed away on July 19. Terry Staples describes this beautiful lady: “If you have been on Swan’s Island in the past, I’m sure you have met Terie at TIMS or The Fisherman’s Co-op. Her infectious smile and loving attitude were something that made your day a little better. Sadly, she left us and her family much too soon. We are trying to raise funds to hopefully fulfill Terie’s dream of helping her very talented children, Jessica DeFrenn and Jackson Laws, finish their schooling.” Gavin Savage has set up a GoFundMe page at https://gofund.me/7c2d148e for Terie’s family and anyone who is willing to help them out during this difficult time. 

Bev McAloon reminds us that the Swan’s Island Artist Open Studio is Friday, Aug. 6, from 1-5 p.m. This year’s all-star cast is Iver Lofving at the Iver Studio, Dale Joyce at the Dale Joyce Studio and John Bryan, Bill Cheney, Jessica DeFrenn, Laurie Farley, Jessica Harrington, Gary Hoyle, AnnMarie Maguire, Viqui Maggio, Abby Milner, Hal Minis, Bev McAloon and Jennifer Pope at Odd Fellow’s Hall.

If you have a trailer you would like to donate or sell, please let us know. We are a nonprofit and donations are tax deductible.”
