YOU

 HAVE HELPED TO PRESERVE THE RIVER BEND SILO!!!

GREAT NEWS!
THE CPC PROPOSED TO DONATE $85,000 TO THE SILO RENOVATION AND TOWN MEETING APPROVED THE PROPOSAL!

WITH YOUR HELP, THE FRIENDS OF THE SILO HAVE RAISED $8900 
AND THE  COONAMESSET FARM FOUNDATION PROVIDED $15,000 TOWARDS THE PROJECT

OUR NEXT STEP IS TO BEGIN RAISING MONEY TO BUILD AN APPROPRIATE EDUCATIONAL COMPONENT FOR OUR RENOVATED SILO

WE HOPE TO BEGIN THAT PROJECT THIS SUMMER BUT MEANTIME, YOU CAN SEND DONATIONS TO THE 300 COMMITTEE AND EARMARK THEM FOR THE SILO EDUCATIONAL DISPLAY FUND.

The 90 year old dairy filo at 682 Sandwich Road represents a time when Falmouth was a large farming community.  The silo is situated on an inviting trailhead center for hikes along the Coonamessett River which are being laid out and maintained by the 300 committee and volunteers.  The silo will become a focal point at the trai8lhead and will provide a visual setting for educational displays about Falmouth's farming history from cranberries, salt hay and sheep in the 18th century to strawberries and diary from t19th to 20th centuries to small local vegetable and livestock farms in the 21st century.


 Make a TAX DEDUCTIBLE contribution for the silo education display to the 300 Committee (www.300committee.org, please note on your contribution that the donation is to be used for the SILO EDUCATIONAL DISPLAY)
