1983-2013

Thirty years ago we purchased Anchor Inn in March and after renovations we opened for our first guests Memorial Day Weekend. We have just completed another Memorial Day Weekend, though it was rainy, our inn was full. Guests come to celebrate the holiday weekend that includes a sailboat race from Hyannis to Nantucket called the Figawi. I always remember the purpose of this holiday and attend Nantucket’s Memorial Day parade. I cheer as our veterans pass, along with the local Coast Guard, Police and Firemen, our Selectmen, and our State Representative…along with the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. I usually take along our new staff if they are from another country, so they can experience a bit of this American tradition. I’ve also had a tradition of taking a couple of neighborhood kids to the parade and treating them to an ice cream cone at the Juice Bar. Many of these kids are grown now, but they often humor me and come along with me if they are here.
