Sharks in the Park in Chatham

It seems that every August and usually throughout summer you can hear the visitors talk about Shark sightings and even the movie Jaws returns to the Chatham Orpheum Theater on Main Street. This year they return again in May to Kate Gould Park in Chatham as part of the "Sharks in the Park" 45 sharks are swimming through the park and created by local artists and represent local businesses in Chatham. They will be in the park until The first band concert and then they will be moved onto the lawn of the Eldridge Public Library and there will also be 36 seals for visitors to "hunt"and find in the various shops on Main Street . The Sharks will go on to be auctioned off at a Shark Gala on August 1 and visitors can stop by the Visitors Information Booth for a passbook booklet so they can get their seals stamped as they find them at the local merchants. Each person who hands in a completed book, will be given a Beach ball and registered in a drawing. At the end of September six gift bags will be given out to the winners who have found the seals. The Shark Gala will host the auction of the "Sharks in the Park" and the proceeds go to the Chatham Shark and Marine Life Research Center. All in all it makes for a fun summer. Have fun on your hunt through Chatham. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
