The Edgartown Council on Aging, also known as the Anchors, has a shiny new wood floor, the result of a generous gift from a local woman who died two years ago. And in the months ahead, the walls will be painted and the windows will be attended to as well.
The improvements are being paid for by the estate of Audry Richard, who grew up in town. The daughter of a fisherman, she was a sales clerk in local stores. Her husband, Edmond Richard, was a mechanic whose father was also an Edgartown fisherman. The couple had no children.
