Special Notice

Special Notice

Ken and Tina Thurston, who among their many contributions to the Island conduct our Winter Watch program, have set up a GoFundMe page to help with the medical and rehabilitation costs for their coworker, Justin Cummings (“JT”).  JT sustained a severe injury over the 4th of July weekend, which will require extensive medical care and rehabilitation of his dominant hand.  JT is a low-income seasonal worker and the Thurston’s are doing their best to support his healing, rehabilitation and adjustment by providing him with rent-free housing and weekly pay until their own seasonal work runs out.  This campaign is to help Justin get through the winter, his healing process and his transition to a new way of feeling the world.  For details and to help, please visit https://www.gofundme.com/just-in-time-for-justin.  On behalf of Justin and the Thurston’s, we thank you in advance for your compassion and generosity.

Annual Meetings and Election

posted Sep 8, 2018, 4:27 AM by John Boyd

Once again, I (Bill Braun, Town Manager) want to acknowledge the sense of respect, goodwill and community spirit that prevailed during the meetings last weekend, and is generally characteristic of Frye Island’s culture.  Approximately 211 BIT members, including 54 registered Town Voters attended the Annual Meeting on Saturday for approval of the budget and the election of officials.  In case you are not otherwise aware, results of the elections were as follows:

 

Board of Selectmen (3-year term):  John Boyd

Board of Island Trustees Executive Committee (3-year term): Mike Saunders

Board of Island Trustees Executive Committee (1-year term): Alan Ross

 

The several qualified and well-meaning individuals who offered to spend time and energy on our behalf by running for office deserve our respect and appreciation for their interest and willingness to contribute.

 

The financial statements reviewed at the annual Frye Island Inc. shareholders meeting are available on the website in Public Documents/Frye Island Inc.
