World Series Trophy, High School Committee, & Other Good Stuff

World Series Caravan Comes to Falmouth


troy_sox2_225Hundreds of people of all ages waited in line at the the Conference Table Restaurant in Falmouth yesterday to catch a glimpse and take a photo (and perhaps sneak another) of the 2004 & 2007 Boston Red Sox World Series trophies. The line was orderly and moved along swiftly, giving the throngs gathered time to visit with the tangible evidence of the first trophy, which symbolizes the shattering of the "Curse of the Bambino," and the second, which clearly established the Red Sox as a 21st century baseball dynasty.  Rumors of a mass pilgrimage to the Bronx to place Boston Red Sox and Falmouth Clipper jerseys in the foundation of the new Yankee Stadium did not materialize, although steady stream of White Tie Limos was seen leaving their nearby headquarters and heading south.  Stay tuned...

Committee to Finish Falmouth High School Established

Responding to a call from the Falmouth Selectmen to garner community-based support, a grass-roots committee has been formed to support passage of Question 1 on the May 2o ballot asking citizens to fund the $18.8 million renovation of Falmouth High School.  Laura Lorusso Peterson has formed the Committee to Finish Falmouth High School and is actively seeking donations and volunteers.  Contact Peterson at: [email protected] for more information or to get involved.

Last Day to Register to Vote

Speaking of the May 20 election, which will not only have the High School question but will feature races for Selectmen, School Committee, and capital items for the Fire and Public Works Departments, Town Clerk Michael Palmer has announced that the last day to register to vote to be eligible to cast a ballot for any of these items is Wednesday, April 30. For more information, contact Palmer's Office at 508-495-7360, or Palmer himself at: [email protected].
