Hello neighbor and greetings from the Old Stone Dock Association,

We are mid-way through the summer and I hope that you are enjoying yourselves. I wanted to update you on several upcoming events and topics that may be of interest to you

Our 2018 Membership Drive was a success with over 250 of you renewing your membership for 2019. Thank you! If any of you haven’t gotten to that yet you can still renew on our website, www.oldstonedock.com , or by sending your application and check to P.O. Box 835, Falmouth, MA¬† 02541.

It’s almost time for our Annual Summer Social! Don and Joyce Filiault at the Beach Breeze Inn are looking forward to hosting us once again and they do a really great job with the event! Moving the date to September last year was received very well by our membership and the event was well attended. This year we have scheduled Sunday, September 9 as the date for the Summer Social. I have attached an invitation with more details and I look forward to seeing you there.

Briefly:

– We have kept the tradition of the $25 per person banquet!
– Host Don Filiault has arranged with Eat Your Heart Out caterers for another fine meal under the Big Top!
Town officials are looking forward to joining with us once again.
– We have many new members to introduce.
2018 Scholarship winners will be announced.
Please respond now or by August 15th by using the form provided.

The Falmouth Road Race is coming up on Sunday, August 19. That makes for a pretty busy morning in the neighborhood with over 13,000 runners participating. Plan your travel that morning accordingly.

On a more serious note, I am sure that you are aware of the stress that the Falmouth Police Department has been under this summer. Two of their officers narrowly avoided serious injury or worse in a confrontation with residents last week. This comes as other Cape Cod and Massachusetts Police Departments have recently lost officers in the line of duty. I saw Falmouth Chief Ed Dunne on television express his concern that the public has lost respect for the uniform. It is my personal belief that the vast majority of Falmouth residents and visitors have an immense amount of respect for our officers and the job that they do serving and protecting us all. If you share this sentiment, I would ask that the next time you see an officer on the streets or around Town you thank him/her for their service to the community. We need to let them know how we feel and help them reinforce their confidence in public support for doing a job that is so important to all of us.

Thank you for supporting the Old Stone Dock Association and I hope to see you on Sunday, September 9!
