The Chilmark Commuinty Center isnt just for Summer yoga classes, film festivals and kids camps, it has a life during the winter months too and last weekend the Children of the Chilmark School performed their winter concert for the community.
Sorry the video isnt wonderful quality but you get a feel for this sweet song dedicated to the town of Chilmark.
Here are the Lyrics of the song. Dont they capture the essense of our beloved town?
CHILMARK SCHOOL SONG
Chilmark, Martha’s Vineyard, my home beside the sea
Where the fishermen rest, when the suns in the west
Before they sail to sea.
There are sand dunes, on the south side
Where the surf pounds on the shore.
There are rolling hills for the hunters
And trout in the ponds once more.
Where the Beetlebung trees, sway in the breeze
Turning crimson in the fall.
Where the people walk and talk, along the Dutcher Dock
We love you Chilmark best of all.
Chilmark, here’s to you!
It's clear that the school kids love Chilmark as much as we do!
