Sandwich Conservation Trust Annual Meeting

SCT Annual Meeting
to feature 
"A History of the E. Sandwich Game Farm"

The Sandwich Conservation Trust will hold its annual meeting on Sunday, October 25th at 2 PM at the East Sandwich Grange Hall, 91 Old County Road.  The public is invited to attend. The program is free, though donations are always appreciated.

The SCT is a non-profit organization, and has been working since 1985 to preserve open space in Sandwich.  216 acres are held in preservation through SCT ownership and conservation restrictions.

SCT president and local historian John Nye Cullity will present a slideshow and talk entitled, “A History of the East Sandwich Game Farm”.  Mr. Cullity will present maps, aerial photographs and vintage photographs to interpret the evolution of this beautiful property: geography, Native American occupation, farm and maritime history, use by the Commonwealth as a game farm, and recent preservation.
