Annual Meeting Recap

SCT President, John Cullity

Our president, John Cullity, provided a summary of the accomplishments over the year and goals for the coming year.  Accomplishments included acquiring new properties, creating a parking area and the installation of fencing at Gully Lane, to name a few.  You can read more in the SCT Newsletter that was mailed to members a few weeks ago.  If you didn't receive a newsletter, why not become a member?  

Trustees elected for a new three year term included:
  • Cliff Irving
  • Brian Kelly
  • Bob O'Connor
  • Joe Queenan
  • John Juros, a new trustee
We are sorry to see our treasurer, Sarah Marter, leave our organization.  Sarah provided much support in that capacity and as a trustee over the years and we wish her well in her new ventures in a warmer climate.

Welcome to our new treasurer, Monique Szechenyi, a longtime Sandwich resident who comes to us with non-profit experience.

Brad Chase, MA DMF
If you missed the meeting, you missed an interesting talk by Brad Chase of the MA Division of Marine Fisheries.  Brad's work focuses on American eel and river herring management.  He explained the differences among diadromous, anadromous and catadromous fish species; population trends historically to present; the numbers of fish runs on the Cape and in MA ; fish counting methods employed in runs; and much more.  Thanks Brad!
