Local Businesses Support Teaticket Park at their Cash Registers
On Saturday, June 1, Falmouth Wine & Spirits held a raffle to benefit Teaticket Park. The winner, Del Johnson, received a gorgeous basket full of wine. Ticket sales, which were ongoing for more than 3 weeks prior to the drawing, totaled $448 and Jay Hedlund of Falmouth Wine & Spirits matched the first $300. The total donation to T3C for Teaticket Park was $748...wow! A huge thank you to Jay and Falmouth Wine & Spirits, 322 Palmer Ave., Falmouth.
The 300 Committee Land Trust’s efforts to create Teaticket Park in the heart of Falmouth’s busy Teaticket corridor have been endorsed by nine local businesses. From May 4 – 18, the following Falmouth vendors participated in the Teaticket Park cash register fund raiser program organized by the owners of Teaticket Market, Bryan Anderson and Lewis Farwell:
7-Eleven (743 Main St., Falmouth)
Falmouth Bait and Tackle (258 Teaticket Hwy. #1)
Falmouth Fish Market (157 Teaticket Hwy.)
Kenyon’s Market (769 E. Falmouth Hwy.)
RJ’s Variety and Liquor (174 Sandwich Road)
Nice & Natural Hair Design (Driftwood Plaza, 194
North Falmouth Liquors (362 N. Falmouth Hwy.)
Teaticket Market (125 Teaticket Hwy.)
Windfall Market (77 Scranton Ave.)
During the two-week period, customers of the participating stores had the opportunity to purchase a donation certificate to support Teaticket Park. The certificates were in three denominations: $1, $5, and $10, and every dollar donated counts towards a $75,000 challenge grant issued by a generous supporter of The 300 Committee.
Please stop by these local shops and thank them for their help in making Teaticket Park a reality. They raised more than $2,000!

Paddle to Parcels: Kayak Outing!
Sunday morning, June 23rd
There are so many ways to enjoy Falmouth’s open spaces—walking, biking and now paddling! On Sunday, June 23rd, The 300 Committee will offer its first kayak tour highlighting our public waterfront. For this two-hour trip, we’ll explore Bournes Pond and enjoy views of Sea Farms Marsh, 87 acres of quiet woodland, field and marsh bordering the pond.
This trip is for experienced kayakers only. Since space is limited, you must register in advance and receive confirmation. To register, please send an email to Outreach Committee Co-Chair, Anne-Marie Runfola at:
amrunfola AT yahoo DOT com . Include your name, email and phone number. This is a morning tour, and all details will be included in the confirmation email.
For more information on Sea Farms, please visit our
Sea Farms Marsh page.

"This Land is Your Land"
With enormous thanks to the Falmouth Education Foundation and Falmouth Schools Art Coordinator (grades 7-12) Jane Fay Baker, the "This Land is Your Land" project was again a fabulous success.
A giant mural and beautiful kites have been made by the FHS art students using the habitat artworks created by schoolchildren at Teaticket Elementary. These artworks represent creatures and other features of the natural habitat at the emerging Teaticket Park, next door to their school. On May 2, the entire school and 65 FHS art honor society students celebrated open space in Falmouth with a kite festival and the unveiling of the mural which will have a permanent home in the Teaticket School cafeteria.

The Creation of Teaticket Park Begins!
The 300 Committee purchased the 10.7-acre driving range on Teaticket Highway from Bill and Donna Vieira on December 30, 2011. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts' Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs supported our project to convert the land to a community park with a $500,000 PARC grant. During the last year, T3C has coordinated the removal of buildings, design planning, permitting requirements and fund raising to move the park conversion forward. Keep your "eyes on the prize"! ...more earth moving and planting are underway now as we launch Phase I -- the Streetscape -- in the creation of Teaticket Park!
Check out the park plan below, designed by Stephen Stimson Associates Landscape Architects:
