Fall into Fun and Enjoy the Season

Get out and enjoy the sights and smells of Fall. What's your favorite thing about Fall??? For me its just about everything and the Cape is full of things to do during the Fall. Hope you are enjoying it all.

Oktoberfest - Pumpkin People in the Park, a Chatham Merchants Association sponsored event
Oct. 15 - Oct. 31

Pumpkin People in the Park. Kate Gould Park and the bandstand are surrounded by the creative and innovative Pumpkin People fashioned by local businesses, organizations or just plain folk. They are on display from Oct. 15th until Halloween! However, these larger-than-life creations are just the frost on the pumpkin the day of the festival.

 Don't forget just about any soup can be a harvest treat when you clean out a pumpkin shell and bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for about an hour.

A Zip Trip through Yarmouth

It was a cloudy but warm morning last friday when the Morning Fox News Team set up on Bass River Beach to show their viewing audience where they visited for their Zip Trip. Proud neighbors and friends join them as they showed their viewers just what Yarmouth had to offer. The second oldest town on Cape Cod has alot to be seen by the weary traveler. Packed within its 17 square mile area its three villages each have their own personalities.

South Yarmouth, West Yarmouth, and Yarmouthport each have a special charm of their own, if one is willing to venture off the beaten path of route 6. Golf, minature golf, go carts, beaches, ponds, kayaks, restaurants of all types, ice cream, bike paths, nature walks, fishing, boat rides, history adventures, gift shops, antiques,gift shops, baseball games and lots of breathtaking scenery await at every turn. Its no wonder that the population triples in the summer.

Thanks to Fox for Zipping Through!!!!

Its a Doggy Easter



It was a Doggy Easter at the Brewster Ladies's Library today. The children gathered  early this morning to watch the dogs model their Easter Hat creations and learn about the duties they perform. They learned about these very special therapy dogs who have special duties. These activities include, but are not limited to, visits to hospitals, special needs centers, schools, and nursing homes. This happens because of a network of caring individuals who are willing to share their special animals in order to bring happiness and cheer to people, young and old alike. And sharing was what is was all about today. As the owners and their wonderfully behaved dogs allowed us to share in their day. The children watched in amazement as each dog showed that they could sniff out the special egg with their hidden treat. And together they shared an Easter Story and made new friends.

Happy Easter to all !!
