Hi Neighbor

The Old Stone Dock Association has been selected as a 2017 recipient of the Falmouth Heritage Society Award. This is a big deal.  

Established in 2000 to mark the 100th anniversary of the Historical Society, the award recognizes individuals or organizations who have provided outstanding leadership over time to help preserve the character, culture, stories, vistas or other aspect of Falmouth’s rich history, or have inspired others to do so, resulting in a lasting legacy. 

That’s where the Old Stone Dock Association comes in.  We have been cited especially this year in recognition of the 200th anniversary of the Old Stone Dock itself and the efforts we have made to create appreciation throughout the town for that piece of our maritime heritage.  It’s the type of work we have been doing for the 50 years of the Association’s history, working with the town for improvements in beautification, traffic control, beach utilization, road maintenance, and the general well-being of residents.

More information will follow, but now is the time to plan for a special night at the Coonamessett Inn.   If you haven’t been to a Heritage Awards Dinner before, I can tell you that it’s a gala evening in Falmouth.

We enjoy our annual gatherings at the Beach Breeze and ShoreWay Acres, and this is literally a once-in-a-lifetime recognition to gather with a town-wide audience in celebration of the Old Stone Dock’s 200 years of serving Falmouth, and the Association’s services rendered over decades to advocate for the areas around the beach and bathhouse on behalf of all residents.

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 from 5pm until you’re tired.

Many thanks to all of you for your support of the Association!  I hope you will plan to join the celebration.

Kevin Doyle, President
Old Stone Dock Association
