Andrea Taylor welcomes Sunset Sing audience at East Chop Lighthouse in honor of Della Hardman Day. Alison L. Mead

Nine years ago the Oak Bluffs selectmen designated the last Saturday in July as Della Hardman Day to commemorate Mrs. Hardman’s work as a scholar, volunteer and an outstanding Islander. This year’s celebration included a speech by Charlayne Hunter-Gault about the 50th anniversary of the civil rights march on Washington, D.C. where Ms. Hardman brought her entire family.

The following day Jim Thomas led his spiritual choir in a sunset performance at the East Chop Lighthouse.
