Great food, great time
enjoyed by all at the
13th Annual Spring
Winetasting Dinner!

The award-winning Cape Sea Grille once again generously hosted this very popular evening of delicious dining complemented by fine wines. Opening remarks and reflections about Bob Smith’s vision as well as a celebration of his land preservation legacy started off the Harwich Conservation Trust’s (HCT) 13th Annual Spring Winetasting Dinner in Harwich Port. Guests chatted with friends and met new folks throughout the festive event. Proceeds benefit HCT’s land-saving mission to preserve land that protects woods, water, wildlife and our shared quality of life in Harwich.

Tour de Trash:
More than a ton of fun!

More than 100 volunteers for HCT along with our partner the Town Conservation Department picked up over a ton of trash and recyclables across Harwich during a thorough spring cleaning on Saturday, May 2nd!  Volunteers arrived at 8:30 a.m. at Monomoy Regional High School to get organized for the Tour de Trash from 9:00 to noon, followed by lunch back at the high school from noon to 1. Wearing bright colored shirts, work gloves and sturdy footwear, volunteers scoured roadways, beaches and trails to keep our special corner of the Cape beautiful. Special thanks to the Wequassett Resort and Stop & Shop for sponsoring the event.

Harwich voters unanimously voted YES on Article 33 at the Monday, May 4th Annual Town Meeting held at the Harwich Community Center. Now the Selectmen can move forward to purchase and save the last four acres with 750 feet of shoreline on the West Reservoir to protect the Herring River and wildlife as well as complete a future walking trail loop. Arthur H. Hall, Sr. (son of John E. Hall and Eleanor R. Hall), his wife Carolyn C. Hall, and their sons, Arthur H. Hall, Jr., Alan J. Hall, and Aaron L. Hall share the vision of natural resource protection and have agreed to sell their four waterfront acres to the Town for $630,000.
