YANKEE DISTRICT ROSE SHOW & LOBSTERFEST WEEKEND
September 5 TH , 6 TH AND 7 TH , 2014
CAPE COD, MASSACHUSETTS
Join us for any or all of the events planned for the weekend. Not a problem to drop in along the way.
We will start out Friday afternoon meeting at the Osborn’s house - 12 Scotch Pine Farm, in East
Harwich, MA., around noon. We will begin our driving to Scargo Tower. Scargo tower sits atop
Scargo Hill, one of the tallest [160 feet (49  m)] and best-known hills on Cape Cod. The tower is
located in the town of Dennis, Massachusetts off of Scargo Hill road.
From there we will go to Crowe’s Pasture located on Quivet Neck, the
northeasterly corner of the Town of Dennis, MA. This 250 acre gem contains a
generous sampling of the natural beauties of Cape Cod. On the North are
dunes and sandy beaches on the shore of Cape Cod Bay. To the East, lies Quivett
Creek, and an impressive expanse of salt marsh.

Set up for the rose show will be at 4PM at the BrewsterSportsman Club
280 Tubman Road, Brewster, MA. The more people that help set up, the faster we can get it
done and move on to our next activity……. Blue Claw Boat Tours!!! 6-7PM $25. We can
bring refreshments - enjoy a glass of wine while relaxing with our Yankee District friends.
“Cruise down a saltwater river to Little Pleasant Bay as the quiet evening
descends, shore birds and sailboats will be sighted. You are invited to bring your own
refreshments. Relax, unwind and enjoy the tranquility!”
