lemonade... good news from newport  

july 2012

SallyAnne Santos

Hi Everyone!


Welcome to the July issue of lemonade!

Normally, I use this space to look forward, but this month I'm compelled to look back and give thanks and kudos to awesome events that have already taken place.


Bill Doyle and Jed Pearsall First, to my dear friends Bill Doyle and Jed Pearsall, two of the best lemonade-makers ever. They had the courage, foresight, tenacity and creativity to turn the tragedy of their NY30 Amorita's 2007 sinking into a remarkable film, 07.07.07 Amorita's Unlucky Day. It will touch hearts and imaginations for years to come, just as the boat herself has done for more than a century-- BRAVO!


Brad Read Next to Brad Read, the first person to welcome me to Newport after 9/11 and help me heal with Sail for Pride. He along with his Sail Newport team are largely responsible for bringing the America's Cup World Series to Newport, and making it such a huge success. It was one of the most amazing events ever, and puts Newport on the map for more world class sailing events in the future-- WELL DONE! 


D.F. Dwyer InsuranceAnd finally, I invite you to take a trip in the wayback machine to July 1962, another historic time in Newport. It too was an America's Cup summer, Louis Armstrong, Aretha Franklin and Count Basie played the Newport Jazz Festival, JFK and the First Family vacationed at Hammersmith, Telestar was launched and watermelon was just 5 cents/lb at Almacs. Thanks to D.F. Dwyer Insurance Agency Celebrating 50 Years, we're squinting at microfilm every month to uncover really interesting "lost" stories not found elsewhere on the "interwebs."  Enjoy the time trip to 1962 in Newport & Beyond here.   


2011 All Star Award Happy Independence Day!





p.s. The Windlass Creative office will be closed from Friday, 7/13 through Monday, 7/23 as yours truly takes a break to attend Guitar Camp with Richard Thompson. (Wahoo!)
