Governor Deval Patrick and his wife, Diane, plan to join President Obama and the first lady for dinner on Martha’s Vineyard on Thursday, said a person familiar with Patrick’s schedule.
The Patricks and the Obamas will likely have dinner at the vacation home on Blue Heron Farm in Chilmark where the president is staying, the person said.
Longtime friends and fellow Chicagoans, Obama and Patrick routinely break bread during the First Family’s annual Vineyard vacations. And the Patricks have been regular guests at the White House during non-official visits, such as a party following Obama’s inauguration.
The Patricks planned to return to the mainland after the meal, said the person familiar with Patrick’s plans.Jim O’Sullivan can be reached at Jim.OSullivan@globe.com. Follow him on Twitter at @JOSreports.
