What's Happening this Weekend?

Check out the lovely photo our guests from Ireland sent after their stay last week. They took full advantage of all Wellfleet has to offer.

Here's what's happening in the area this weekend:

Danny Casolaro Died for You, the final play of the season at WHAT, started Thursday: (Fresh from the National New Play Network, Danny Casolaro is based on a true story about the playwright's cousin, an investigative reporter. A search for a mafia/Hollywood connection led the quirky Casolaro to high-level corruption in the Reagan/Bush Justice Department. Within a year, he was found dead in a cheap motel. What was the truth Danny died trying expose, and what does his strange journey reveal about the political world we live in now?)

It’s Truro Treasures weekend! As part of the celebration, Truro Vineyards will hold a Grape Stomp and Jazz Fest. Listen to Moby Dick and the Whalers all afternoon, and check out the many local food and craft vendors. Free admission.

Otherwise, the library seems to be the place to go for enlightenment:

September 19, Dr. Sara Roy speaks on Gaza at 3 pm.

September 20, Monday: View Paul Tukey's documentary “A Chemical Reaction” about a Canadian town that successfully banned lawn and garden chemicals, 7:30 pm, free admission, Q&A to follow the film, organized by Beverly Callistini. (As more Cape Codders join the fight to prevent pesticide policies from destroying our precious groundwater, check out what has been accomplished north of the border. "A Chemical Reaction" will be introduced by local activists, including organic landscaper Laura Kelley of Eastham, and Sandy Grabbe of Wellfleet.) 

Whoa! That’s me! Yes, come join the discussion and get inspired by regular folks in Hudson, Ontario, who decided to take matters into their own hands after a local dermatologist spoke up about the effect toxic lawn chemicals have on health...
