Coupeville Mayor Molly Hughes, left, joined by Coupeville Chamber Executive Director Lynda Eccles, cuts a “ceremonial” ribbon of toilet paper on Saturday Aug. 3 to officially open four new public restrooms in the parking lot at the Town Green.                                The restrooms were constructed inside the historic Holbrook Barn, which had been moved to the Town Green.                                The restroom project plus repaving and enlarging of the parking lot were paid for with county and other grants. The mayor told the gathering she was proud the entire project had come in on budget and ahead of schedule. (Photo by Harry Anderson)
