7 February - The following is from Fred Bartlett:  "A beautiful Feb. clear, calm and moonlit “Jamestown Night” welcomed 65 folks to the new Jamestown FISH restaurant for our Winter Dinner. A complimentary glass of “bubbly” for everyone as they entered FISH set the stage for a great evening of fine dining and renewing friendships. Thanks to all the FISH staff for a great night!"

31 January - Dark & Stormy Night at the Narragansett Cafe.

22 January - What are the odds that 5 people from Jamestown would run into each other at a barbeque on the beach of Portsmouth, Dominica in the Caribbean?  The Buckleys, Pyles and Roy Guay ran into each other at the weekly Sunday night barbeque put on by the local businesses.  The Buckleys have been spending the winters around the islands since 2007 and the Pyles since 2008.  I was there for two weeks on a friends boat.  And we all just happened to meet in the same place at the same time.
