What's Happening in Wellfleet?

Lots going on this weekend! The Wellfleet Historical Society is hosting a house tour on Sunday, which I would love to attend, but cleaning calls. WHAT has received fabulous reviews for its plays this season. Right now Born Yesterday is at the Julie Harris Stage and Cyrano is at the Harbor Stage. The Parkington Sisters will perform at the Congregational Church this weekend. And, tonight David Wright will give a free concert at Mayo Beach. While I would love to stay on top of all these events, that really is not the purpose of this blog. That is why I am happy to announce the Discover Wellfleet Web site will soon become operational. As many of you may remember, the Economic Development Committee suggested the creation of a Web site that promotes Wellfleet as a town for all seasons, an idea the Selectmen embraced wholeheartedly. Our chair Paul Pilcher has worked hard to make this new online destination shine, with help from Christian Patapie and Kathy Shorr. Cannot wait to see the results!

In the coming weeks, there will be several great events to promote Wellfleet Preservation Hall, including a concert July 29th featuring singer songwriter Richard Shindell. In the meantime, check out the gardens on display at last month's tour, filmed by FishTV.
