Established in 2000 to mark the 100th anniversary of the Historical Society, the award recognizes individuals or organizations who have provided outstanding leadership over time to help preserve the character, culture, stories, vistas or other aspect of Falmouth’s rich history, or have inspired others to do so, resulting in a lasting legacy.
In 2017, we will be honoring two groups who work for the beautification and betterment of Falmouth!
Our 2017 Heritage Award Recipients:
The Falmouth Garden Club: Founded in 1931 and working with the Falmouth Historical Society since 1947, the Falmouth Garden Club is one of the oldest and largest clubs in the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts. Throughout its 86 year history, the club has contributed to the civic and residential communities, centering their projects and workshops on horticulture, conservation and design.
Old Stone Dock Association: For over 50 years this neighborhood association has worked with town leaders for improvements in beautification, safety, and road maintenance around Surf Drive Beach and Bathhouse on behalf of all Falmouth residents. In recognition of the 200th anniversary of the Old Stone Dock (1817-2017), the members of the Association have worked to create town-wide appreciation for that piece of our maritime heritage.
Each honoree has contributed to Falmouth’s culture by their work at community improvement and beautification. We salute both of these hard-working organizations!
The 2017 Heritage Award Dinner will be held on Wednesday, June 21st at the Coonamessett Inn, Falmouth. Dinner will be chicken piccatta or, if needed, a vegetarian option.
