The select board also announced that a memorial service for Marie Bowling Allen, a former Oak Bluffs resident and president of the Martha’s Vineyard NAACP, will be held July 11 at 9:30 p.m. at Union Chapel in Oak Bluffs.

Ms. Allen was a lifelong civil rights and social justice advocate who served as a board member for multiple NAACP branches and the MV Island Elderly Housing. She was the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2017 Living Legend Award at the NAACP New England Area Conference.

Ms. Allen died in February at 92 years old. She was found by a family member on a walkway outside her home, after a night of sub-zero temperatures.

The service is open to any members of the public who wish to honor and celebrate her life.

The raising of the Portuguese flag from July 14 to 17 was also approved at the meeting, in honor of the Portuguese parade and feast on July 15 and 16.
