"If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air, quaint little villages here and there, you're sure to fall in love with Old Cape Cod." For many, Patti Page's recording of "Old Cape Cod" in 1957 captured the ambience and character of the Outer Cape, much of which has been preserved since President Kennedy signed legislation establishing Cape Cod National Seashore in 1961.  As part of Cape Cod National Seashore's 50th anniversary celebration, employees and alumni, volunteers, and partners, are invited to return on September 16-18, 2011 to refill their shoes with sand, visit old stomping grounds, share stories, and rekindle friendships.

A reunion committee is making plans for several activities, and a proposed list will be released soon. The committee asks that all employees and alumni, volunteers, and partners mark their calendars and spread the word about the reunion weekend.  The committee's contact list is not complete; please send names and contact information to caco50threunion@hotmail.com. For more information, contact Event Ranger Molly Williams at (508) 957-0704.
