Books, Babes and Boyer

Published: Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 02:43 PM.

Last fall, the annual Ghosts on the Coast Halloween celebration was endangered, with the Chamber and many small businesses wondering whether the expense and energy of the event was worthwhile.

Boyer was undaunted.

Ghosts on the Coast, she said, was a tradition, something residents marked on their calendars each year.

And Boyer defines that old maxim about wills and ways.

She solicited support among the small-business community and launched a campaign for candy donations so those businesses would not feel they were bearing the brunt of the expense for an event from which others derived so much.

No seeking of public or personal glory, no desire for honorifics or monetary gain.

Just a passion to improve the community, to maintain the fabric of that community wherever fraying appeared, to continue the traditions that help define that community.
