Christmas Cookies and Other Bits & Pieces

Wind and rain this morning in Wellfleet, but no ice so far. We still have power and are reminded to get the generator hooked up, sooner rather than later. Today’s blog will be bits and pieces:

• Rumor has it that a real French chef is looking to acquire a restaurant in town.

• For follow-up on the ceremony to honor Elaine McIlroy and nine other librarians, go here.

• One of our favorite Boston companies is having a sale. If you are not familiar with Dancing Deer, do check out the Web site and use code SAVE10 for 10% off through Monday. The Christmas cookies, above, are scrumptious!

• While reservations for next summer are beginning to trickle in, we have no guests at all scheduled for the next seven weeks. I have joined a new town committee, the Wellfleet Citizens Economic Commission, to “examine initiatives" the town might undertake to "increase year-round economic opportunities for Wellfleet citizens without creating significant adverse impact on our community character or natural environment." Stay tuned!
