We did not talk “business” until the end when someone mentioned the National Seashore event at the Atwood Higgins house had drawn a crowd, as did two special art sales at Wellfleet galleries. That’s when a gleam came into Paul Pilcher’s eye in contemplation of all the future activities Wellfleet could organize for non-residents in town over the Thanksgiving holiday ….
