Sandwich 375 Committee Announces Cape Cod Healthcare Sponsorship

November 2014

The Sandwich 375 Committee is pleased to announce that it has received a sponsorship grant from Cape Cod Healthcare, which will support several 2014 Sandwich 375th Birthday celebratory events and initiatives.

The Cape Cod Healthcare Founders Level sponsorship will support, among other things, Heritage Day, a commemorative event that will be held on June 14, 2014. The CCHC grant will also allow the committee to publicize events and activities that are planned for the year-long 375th celebration, such as creating and posting signs that will be used for various events around town, and helping with other publicity efforts.

Heritage Day will focus on the town’s rich history and those who founded the town in 1639. The morning festivities will take place at Sandwich Town Hall at 130 Main Street, and will begin with the March of the Descendants, a parade of people who are descended from the town’s original residents, while church bells ring. Students will sing, read poems and play their own musical composition as part of the program.

In the afternoon, the celebration will shift to Sandwich High School on Quaker Meetinghouse Road. Events there will include an all-town picnic and photograph, as well as games, music, a cupcake competition and a Cape Cod Baseball League game.

The CCHC sponsorship of the Sandwich 375th celebration is the latest of several investments the healthcare organization has made in the town.

"Cape Cod Healthcare is committed to finding ways to make our community healthier, and to ensure that everyone in Sandwich and other Cape towns has access to quality, affordable care," said Cape Cod Healthcare President and CEO Michael Lauf. "To that end, this year we completed a renovation project at the Stoneman Outpatient Center in Sandwich, a facility that offers primary and specialty care services, diagnostic testing services, and the only urgent care services on Cape Cod that are staffed by emergency room-trained doctors and nurses. We are pleased to continue our investment in the town through the 375th celebration, so that residents and visitors can commemorate this historic occasion in style. Our congratulations and best wishes go out to the committee and the town."

In 2014, Sandwich will celebrate its 375th birthday with a year of activities and events that are sure to be fun, memorable and fascinating, be it a Daffodil Festival, Hot Air Balloons, BASH Days or a Grand Parade to name a few.
