Wellfleet's Library Goes to the Birds

Now that I have your attention .... as I've said before, there’s always something going on at the Wellfleet Public Library. This week library-goers – and non-library-goers – can admire the amazing birdhouses, created by Cape Codders, to benefit the Sampson Fund. If you ever wondered what to do with your bits of old driftwood, collected throughout the winter, here’s a worthwhile activity for next spring: build a birdhouse for a great cause. Examine this replica of our famous Beachcomber Restaurant closely. There are even French fries at the take-out counter! These gems will be auctioned off Sunday, May 3, from 1 to 4 at the Wequassett Resort in Chatham. ($25 pre-registration donation or $30 Day of the Auction.) Even if you cannot make the auction, do stop by the library today or tomorrow to check out the craftsmanship and feel proud of our citizens responsible for their creation, a gift of time and energy to dogs and birds alike.
