FOSTA Monthly Newsletters

January 2023 Newsletter

It does seem like January may be coming in like a lamb temperature wise, but after spending Christmas in Concord, MA where winters are harsh compared to Cape Cod, I am ever vigilant to grab that scarf and gloves just in case. I know it was cold here too, but the winds made the 12 degrees in Concord feel like minus 12! I could not live there in my old age now!

 

Well, if you have seen the New Enterprise of Friday, Dec. 30th you saw the FOSTA, yes, it is FOSTA which is applying for the CPA grant, not the Library where the Archives are housed, to digitize the Sandwich Enterprise from its first issue in 1997.  This has been on my wish list for ages. Not only are these pages full of solid Sandwich News, but they also include years of John Nye Cullity’s Cedarville Journal, a treasure chest of information about Sandwich. It will be fun to re-read all those stories. We have had quite a few old Sandwich newspapers digitized now and they are all available for free through the FOSTA website and the SPL site under “Archives”.

 

By the way, we are looking for a couple of Sandwich history loving people to join our small group of Board Members for FOSTA. We have had great success, and all the work is truly a labor of love as the cliché goes, but we do need a bit more help in order to properly function and spread the responsibility to keep our organization vital and up to date.

 

If you are interested, you can contact me at Kaethe@comcast.net.  We meet on the third Tuesday of the month in the Macknight room of the Sandwich Public Library  at 1pm and I provide a goodie for munching and you can feel free to bring a beverage. I would suggest you go to our website at www.fostasandwich.com for a better introduction to who we are and what we do.

Wishing everyone a safe and healthy New Year.
