The County of Dukes County held a Benefits Fair for municipal employees last Friday, to give employees and their dependents the opportunity to talk one-on-one with representatives of health, dental and life plans, deferred compensation plans and the retirement system. The event also offered hearing and skin cancer screenings well as a blood pressure check.

All Island municipal employers are part of the Cape Cod Municipal Health, which provided $2,000 in gift certificates to be awarded to attendees for the purchase of health related equipment and/or health club memberships.

The winners were: $500 to Pat Lynch (Up-Island School District); $400 to Elizabeth Stobart (Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School); $400 to T.J. Hegarty (Dukes County); $250 to Russell Smith (Dukes County); $250 to Shelley Carter (Town of Oak Bluffs); $100 to Deborah Ratcliff (Town of Oak Bluffs) and $100 to Donna Michalski (Dukes County).
