LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Island blessings, in the form of masks

April 17, 2020

Letter to Editor, 
As a follow up to last week’s letter from Sue Sligar, “What a blessing it is to live here,” I want to thank and commend Ashley Scarpa and her Super Scarpa Seamstresses. Ashley and her team have been working hard, making face masks for this community. The Scarpa’s Coastal dining room has been transformed into a sewing room, and masks are moving quickly on the production line. As a relative newcomer to Boca Grande, Ashley has stepped up to the plate and provided a much-needed and much-appreciated service to our town.
We, too, feel blessed to be a part of this community. While the COVID-19 will pass, the memory of neighbor helping neighbor will live on.
Thank you Ashley Scarpa and her team!
