From the Chatham-Nauset Lions Club...

Don Yearsley was the guest speaker at a recent dinner meeting of the Chatham-Nauset Lions Club held at the Sheraton Four Points in Eastham.  He brought with him a scale model of the Pilgrim Monument and spoke on behalf of the Pilgrim Monument Committee

which is gearing up to celebrate in 2020 the 400-year anniversary of the Pilgrims landing at what is now known as Provincetown. He said that the Pilgrim Monument is the tallest all-granite building in the U.S. and stands at 252 feet above sea level.  On a clear day, from the top of the monument, Boston can be seen. Following his presentation, he was given a $100 check for the Pilgrim Monument Committee by club president Bernie Cropsey.
