2018 Heritage Award Dinner
April 25 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm$75.00
The Falmouth Historical Society created the Heritage Award to recognize individuals or organizations who have provided outstanding leadership over time to help preserve the character, culture, stories, vistas or other aspects of Falmouth’s rich history, or have inspired others to do so, resulting in a lasting legacy. First presented in 2000 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Historical Society, this award has gone on to honor many men and women who have made a positive impact on Falmouth.
This year, the 19th Heritage Award will celebrate the importance of education in Falmouth, and those who have supported making educational opportunities a priority in Falmouth. Because of the long-lasting effect created by our recipients, we are proud to announce that David Willard of the Cape Cod Five Foundation, as well as Falmouth Volunteers in Public Schools, will be the co-receivers of the 2018 Heritage Award.
About the recipients:
Falmouth Volunteers In Public Schools (VIPS) was initiated in 1982 as a way to increase interaction between the public schools and the community of Falmouth. Today, VIPS has grown from eight volunteers at Falmouth High School to nearly 1,000 volunteers in all seven schools. They serve as the model for public school volunteer programs throughout the region. Falmouth VIPS encourages, trains, and supports volunteers of all ages to work with students, faculty, and administration and facilitates partnerships between the schools and community.
David Willard was Cape Cod Five’s Director of Community Relations for 35 years, and served with the bank for 50 years. Heavily involved with all nonprofits on Cape Cod, and an advocate for education all throughout the region, he retired at the end of 2017. He assisted myriad nonprofits in all phases of Cape Cod life and was passionate about improving the quality of life and education throughout the region.
The 2018 Heritage Award Dinner will be held on Wednesday, April 25 at the Coonamessett Inn, Falmouth. Dinner will be chicken piccatta or, if needed, a vegetarian option.
