Making Memories

Avid adventurer and storyteller, Mark McGrath, will join us with his latest talk, “Making Memories”.  This discussion and photo presentation is about the memories we all have and how we can preserve them. Recalling many poignant and humorous stories of our family and friends is such a joyful experience and it is those stories that are the important pieces in our family tapestry. Mark will look at past generations; memories of life as we have lived it; take a look to the future as well as offering creative techniques for recording these memories.  Mark and his wife, Patti, have spoken at several venues across the Cape and also have talks about:  Walking the Perimeter of Cape Cod; Adventures on the Outer Cape; and Cedar Bank Golf Links.  Mark and Patti brought up their family in Hartford, CT and “washed ashore” to the Cape 19 years ago.  Mark has been co-leader of the Eastham Hiking Club, member of the Viewfinders Camera Club and Chatham-Harwich Newcomers.  He enjoys skiing, golf, history, photography and telling stories.

    About Our Monthly Meetings

    Our monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month, and run September through May.  The meetings are held at the Wellfleet Cinemas on Route 6 and are open to the public.

    The meetings begin at 8:30 a.m., with breakfast snacks and coffee, and the brief business meeting begins around 9:40 a.m.  

    The program begins following the business meeting and the raffle. 

    Programs are varied, and may be informational, with Cape experts discussing local interests such as boating, wildlife, gardening or history. They may also feature local musical or theatrical groups. 
    Meetings end on or about 11:00 AM following the Monthly Program

     Come join us and meet your neighbors!

    Support Nauset Regional Middle School: Box Tops

    Found on literally hundreds of groceries and products, BOX TOPS are little coupons worth 10-cents each and offer an easy way to support our local school.  The Box Tops for Education fundraising program can really add up because the coupons come on groceries and other products that most people already buy.  Today schools are clipping Box Tops to earn cash to buy the things they need: books, computers, playground equipment and more.  You can learn more about the program at

    Clipped Box Tops don’t need to be trimmed perfectly – you can cut them neatly or just tear them off the package.

    Nauset Newcomers would like to help Nauset Regional Middle School by collecting these coupons at our monthly meetings.  Look for the collection bin at the table you get your name tag. Each box top is worth a dime to the school.

    It's an easy and free way to make a positive impact in our community.

    Participating products include General Mills cereals; items from Ziploc and Hefty brands; Betty Crocker baking and bakeware; frozen and refrigerated items from Pillsbury, Totino’s, Annie’s, Land o Lakes, Yoplait; meals and snacks from Old El Paso, Progresso, Hamburger Helper, Nature Valley, and Motts; and even paper products for the home and office.  

    So, please clip out  BOX TOPS and bring them to our monthly meetings.   Ask your family, friends and neighbors to clip them, too, and bring them all in!  

    Thanks in advance for participating in this simple, easy and free way to help our local school!
