Cape Cod National Seashore Announces Schedule of Events and Registration for Employee and Alumni Reunion
Contact: Molly Williams, Event Ranger, 508-957-0704
As part of Cape Cod National Seashore's 50th anniversary celebration, employees and alumni, volunteers, and partners, are invited to return to refill their shoes with sand, visit old stomping grounds, share stories, and rekindle friendships. Some of America's most cherished landscapes are in National Parks; some of the most cherished employees are in National Parks too. If you were one of the lucky few who had the opportunity to work at Cape Cod National Seashore, come back and relive the joy for the weekend.
The Employee and Alumni Reunion committee has prepared a fun and interesting schedule of events for the reunion weekend on September 16-18, 2011. Registration has started and will be open until August 15. A new website has been created and can be found at http://caco50threunion.angelfire.com/index.html. The registration form, schedule of events, merchandise, photos, a guest book, and more can be found on the website. The committee looks forward to meeting with all employees, alumni, volunteers, and partners who have been a part of the last 50 years of Cape Cod National Seashore.
No access to the internet, no problem, contact Event Ranger Molly Williams at (508) 957-0704 for more information.
