February 13th Program

8:30am - 11:00am Meeting Open to Public

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we've had to postpone Don Wilding's presentation.  One of our upcoming presenters has graciously agreed to be our February speaker.

"Ocean Science and Exploration at

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI)"

WHOI is the world’s largest non-profit focused on ocean exploration, discovery, and research.  Learn about the research our ocean scientists, engineers, and technicians are working on, from pole to pole, from the coast to the open ocean, and from the wave tops to the seafloor (and below).

Presented by Kathy Patterson, who has been a part of the communications team at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) for over thirty years, working with scientists, engineers, graphic artists, and others to explain the newest developments in ocean science. She is the Institute’s liaison with organizations and museums around the world, helping them to develop exhibits that incorporate important discoveries made by WHOI investigators.

We hope you like our new logo! We think it's more modern, while paying homage to the original lighthouse logo.  Nauset Newcomers is also in the process of updating its newsletter and website to better reflect the vitality of our organization. You can look forward to continuing improvements in the site, especially in the Group Activity area.  We are planning the launch of a new and easier to use website over the summer of 2019. Thanks to all our volunteers who are working diligently on these projects!

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.  

An educational or entertaining program begins following the business meeting and the raffle (which raises funds to support area non-profits). Programs 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 about 11:00am.

 Come join us and meet your neighbors!

Support Nauset Regional Middle School: Collect Box Tops

Nauset Newcomers are encouraged to support Box Tops for Education, to benefit the Nauset Regional Middle School.  Found on hundreds of groceries and products, BOX TOPS are little coupons worth 10-cents each and offer an easy way to support our local school.  

Box Tops help to buy things schools need: books, computers, playground equipment and more.  You can learn more about the program at

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.
