  • Since using Brain Training for Dogs my dogs are more excited to learn. They actively want to take part and figure out what they need to do! It's not about "commanding" that they perform a behavior, it's about getting them thinking. I really love this approach to dog training and my dogs do too! ➤➤ https://bit.ly/38b79Wm

  2. 2. 23 Wianno Avenue, Osterville, MA 02655 hours + further information www.yankeeaccent.com © Copyright 1990 , Inc. Acclaimed as the finest family boat and best all-around sailboat of her size ever developed, generations of sailors have acquired their skill and love for sailing at her helm. The painting catches Captain Nat in a moment of relaxation, totally in control yet totally at ease in his element. Sailing ROBIN from his family home nestled along the Bristol village shoreline, past the stern of RESOLUTE, the crew is seen in unconscious salute in their attention. So many seasoned sailors of big boats attained their feel for sailing and love of the sea in a small boat, and are rejuvenated by the intimacy and essence of their return. How fitting the tribute of the giant RESOLUTE and crew to the legendary genius and his classic 12 1 /2 footer. Commissioned to celebrate the Herreshoff 12 1 /2 Foot Class, this beautiful painting is as much an affectionate portrait of the ultimate master of yacht design and construction. Original painting $200,000 conditional sale Fine art prints available The Original Herreshoff 121/2 Footer Captain Nathanael G. Herreshoff in 1915 by Frank W.

  4. 4. 2 Welcome WELCOME www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Welcome to Experience Osterville 2015! We are so grateful to our advertisers and readers for helping us get the word out about all the great events, organizations, and businesses you can find in this wonderful village we call home. As always, free copies of Experience Osterville are available at the library and businesses in and beyond Osterville. And our digital version at ExperienceOsterville.com – in the top 5% of most-viewed on SlideShare in 2014 – has increased exponentially in popularity from year to year. In this year’s edition, it is my pleasure to introduce you to our new Executive Director, Susan Belekewicz. Susan came on board this past fall to lead the library’s exciting evolution into a destination library, and in her debut article in Experience Osterville (see page 41), she shares her first impressions and thoughts on the library’s responsibility to both preserve the past and embrace the future – and what it will take to succeed. Also included is a look at the great work being done by Three Bays Preservation to protect our natural resources. You’ll also find articles on how and where to harvest your own shellfish, and a look at how Osterville natives have been creating authentic Cape Cod clambakes for generations. We’ve also included our calendar of events for 2015/16. For last-minute additions to village activities and events, follow the library and Osterville village on Facebook and Twitter, and visit ExperienceOsterville.com and OstervilleVillageLibrary.org.

  6. 6. 5 POSTCARDSFROMTHEPAST Some say a picture is worth a thousand words. The same is true of postcards. From the beautiful image on the front, the name of the sender and the address of the recipient, the message written, the stamp used, and the final mark of time with a cancellation, postcards capture a glimpse into the past. Take a stroll through the village of Osterville through the postcard images of the 1920s and 30s – “glory days” to many. This small village, one of seven in Barnstable, drew many to her beautiful seaside. Majestic inns like the East Bay Lodge dotted the coastal landscape. And the Crosby boat builders were creating what was to become a world-renowned class of racing boats – the Wianno Seniors – and a style of boat designed for these Cape Cod waters – the Crosby catboat. If you follow the path of Captain Bursley’s stagecoach from the West Barnstable train station to the East Bay Lodge or the Cotocheset Inn, you’ll see what many travelers encountered in their respite by the sea. Entering the village, you would pass by the Henry Foster Lewis house that later became the site of Midway Garage. Fire destroyed the Lewis house in 1921, but the barns are still in use today as inspection bays for Midway. A young Mildred Lewis, in fact, had her tonsils removed by Dr. Kinney, the village doctor, right in those horse stables. cont’d www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org A Postcard Walk Through Osterville: Picture Perfect
  7. 7. The Osterville Baptist Church is a central focal point in the Village, as is the Daniel Block of storefronts whose architecture can be easily recognized today. Just down the road, the Pattison Block also retains a similar façade. Long gone are the A&P grocery store, drugstore, and movie theater, but retail spaces including an art gallery now flourish. The diamond-shaped windows of the original Methodist Church on Main Street can still be seen at what is now Checkerberry House Interiors. Likewise the Kalas Fruit Store located at the beginning of the village near the hay scales was known to many as “Charlie’s” or the “Penny Candy Store” until it closed in 2000. Now, Vintage Flowers occupies the same space, and the American flag waves proudly over the village in the same spot as the hay scales. While private homes have turned into retail spaces, the heart of the village remains the same. History is present in the village today – all you have to do is look around. – Jennifer Williams Jennifer Morgan Williams is the author of Osterville: A Postcard History and is the executive director of the Osterville Historical Museum. Most of the postcards shown are from the Museum’s collection and she added more from her personal collection. She lives in Osterville with her husband, John, and their four children.

  9. 9. 11 OSTERVILLEEATS www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Hungry? You’re in luck because Osterville has options! Whether you’re staying in the village or just here for the day, the village is renowned for its wide variety of eateries that cater to every palate any time of day. CRACK OF DAWN CUISINE Yes, Osterville has its own Dunkin Donuts for that first to-go cup of the day, but the locals know there are great options for yummy breakfasts. Wianno Green Café has a full breakfast menu. Omelets! French toast! Amie Bakery, the new French style bakery in the old “Osterville Newstand” space, offers scrumptious made-fresh-daily croissants, bagels, Jordan Marsh blueberry muffins (remember?) and other pastries and locally sourced coffees and juices. For takeout, or a leisurely breakfast on their porch, Earthly Delights has yummy, healthy offerings. Both Fancy’s Market and Café Crumb are good bets for on-the-go quick breakfasts too. If it’s Sunday, both Crisp and Wimpy’s Seafood Café are serving brunch. LUNCH: ON THE GO OR AT YOUR LEISURE If it’s a sandwich for lunch you haven’t solved, you can wait (along with the rest of the village) in line at Fancy’s for a Father’s Favorite (my father’s fave!) or a Grilled Mediterranean (mine!). Wianno Green Café can also help with great sandwiches and salads. Crisp opens for lunch and Café Crumb has those nice slices of quiche (not to mention their cookies). Don’t forget J.J.’s Roast Beef. When’s the last time you had a hot roast beef sandwich, or even hot pastrami? Amie Bakery offers special soups and sandwiches every day – not to mention desserts and pastries for any time of day. Owner Amie Smith has plans to bring back the old-fashioned soda fountain, so look for yummy ice cream treats this summer. What about your gluten-intolerant vegan daughter? Earthly Delights was put on this earth to solve that problem for you. Get her a great veggie burger for lunch or a special tofu entrée for dinner tonight and she’ll probably start talking to you again. You know you can’t resist their world-class chicken salad. And before you walk out the door, pick up a crisp oatmeal cookie or banana-mango smoothie to get you through the afternoon. Maybe even live dangerously and try an energizing shot of wheatgrass.

  11. 11. WHAT’S COOKING FOR DINNER? Quick, call Five Bays Bistro for a reservation. You’ll love the Sole Française. Maybe you can squeeze in a side order of little roasted clams. Even if you have to wait to be seated or if there’s a martini calling your name, the bar is poised for action and a couple of Kobe sliders will tide you over until your table’s ready. Oh, you’ve got the kids and inlaws too? Wimpy’s Seafood Café will have seating for your brood. Plump fried clams? Sherry-laced Lobster Newburg? Or a cup of clam chowder and good burger? Don’t neglect their world- class French fries or the heavenly hashed and creamed potatoes. They’ve got a great kids menu too, plenty of belly-less clams and chicken tenders. If your gang just wants to hang out at home, or dine at Dowes Beach, call Wimpy’s Market to pick up take-out dinners of all your favorites. And if you’re craving pizza, Crisp is its own best advertisement, always packed. You can sit outside by the fire pit while the kids play nearby on the lawn, or snag a hi-top in the cozy bar inside. On a chilly day, it’s fun to sample a local craft beer and watch the flatbreads slide into the wood-fired oven. They don’t take reservations but if the seating’s tied up, get some great flatbreads to go, along with salad and pasta sides. The Summer Lovin’ veggie one is a favorite at my house. If traditional pizza is more your style, call Pizza1 Subs2 for a large pepperoni with extra anchovies (my favorite). Toss in a few overstuffed meatball subs and a salad or two for the health conscious, and have it all delivered to your door. Osterville Fish will also help you feed your crowd. They have great fried fish platters, but if you get the neighborhood to sign on, you can have them do a soup-to-nuts clambake in the backyard. Pencil that in for early August, and don’t forget to send me an invitation. For the best sunset view in town, don’t forget the Islander! Right on the waterfront at Crosby’s, we crave their great fish tacos with the salsa bite. And fresh oysters go down so smoothly with a gorgeous sunset. Try them with soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger, and wash them down with a Mojito as you watch the sun dip below the horizon on West Bay. – Laurie Young 13 OSTERVILLEEATS www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Courtesy of Five Bays BistroCourtesy of Crisp

  14. 14. Three Generations of the Reidell Family: Carl S. left, Carl A. (Guy) center, and Carl F. right. Circa 1979 Since 1932 the name Riedell has been synonymous with Osterville and quality plumbing and heating services. It was in that year that Carl F. and his wife Ethel Riedell began operating a Mom and Pop plumbing company out of their home on Scudder Road. Over time the business grew and they added a shop onto the property. And when business expanded beyond the scope of a home operation, they located their growing enterprise in the heart of the village. Ethel continued to work in the family business office, and walked to work every day well into her 90s. According to their son, Carl S. Riedell, it was his parents’ unique business savvy and dogged work ethic that made the company the thriving business it is today, employing nearly 35 and enjoying great success in plumbing, heating, HVAC, water filtration, winterization, duct cleaning, and property management across Cape Cod. “The secret of their success was their dedication and education,” notes Carl S. of his parents. “My mother graduated from the Boston Univer- sity School of Business in 1926 magma cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa at a time when not many women went to college. My father went to Wentworth Institute of Technology and became a master plumber.” Together they not only built the business, but also raised six children in the village. Their commitment to education extended to their children. “They made sure that every one of their children went to college,” Carl S. notes. Carl F. and Ethel ran the business until 1972 when Carl S., back from serving his country as an officer in the United States Army, took over, a job to which he devoted himself for decades. “Eventually, I found that in order to succeed in business it was important to have someone dedicated to running the business,” he said. “So over time I ran the business. No plumbing.” RIEDELLFAMILY 16 Three Generations Strong: Riedells Thrive in Osterville cont’d

  16. 16. RIEDELLFAMILY 18 Nearly 10 years ago he passed on the day-to- day operations of the company to his own son, Carl A., who goes by the name Guy, a nickname given to him in his youth by his sister, who called him “Little Guy.” Today Guy runs the company with the same attention to detail and customer service that has made it such a mainstay of the community. Continuity of family tradition is important to Guy. He is proud of his employees, who carry on the Riedell commitment to excellence. “The people who work for me are like family,” he said. “They understand the longevity of the company, of the family tradition, and how important it is.” His father concurs. “Osterville is a lovely community in which to live,” Carl S. says. “There are some really nice people who live here. I’ve found that if you are good to them, they are good to you.” – Karyn Kuhn Guy left, Ethel center, and Carl S. Reidell right Ethel was 101 years old when she died in 2007.

  19. 19. 21 REMEMBERINGWWII www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org DATELINE: OSTERVILLE, JUNE 29, 1943 Every night Dan would kiss Dottie goodnight, walk to the top of the hill, and wave his flashlight. Once he did, Dottie knew he was safely off. That night was the last Dottie ever saw of him. What a lot of people don’t realize is that the Crosby Boat Yard was instrumental in training soldiers in preparation for the amphibious assault on D-Day. The army sought out the Crosbys for their specialized skills in boat repair. The Wianno golf course became home to Quonset huts housing hundreds of troops. Dan Ahlquist was one of those soldiers with the Army Corp of Engineers. He was a Second Lieutenant with Company “A,” 1st Battalion, 534th E.A.R. (Engineer Amphibian Regiment). He had special permission to live in a cottage “off base” with his wife and their two young sons. Dan was stationed here in Osterville, and like many, was proudly serving his country in the war effort. On the evening of June 29, 1943, he took part in night time maneuvers off the coast in the waters of Nantucket Sound. The weather was rough. The lighting was poor. Their cabin cruiser hit a shoal, the engines died, and before they could restart, a wave hit. Of the 10 men on board, four died. Three of them, including Dan, were never recovered – lost at sea forever. DAN & DOTTIE: A MOMENT IN TIME Osterville Remembers WWII Dottie & Dan Ahlquist Circa 1943 Crosby Boat Yard Circa 1943 cont’d
  20. 20. REMEMBERINGWWII 22 DATELINE: OSTERVILLE, SEPTEMBER 10, 2014 Clyde Ahlquist, Dottie and Dan’s oldest son, returns to Osterville with his brother, and their sister, born just a few months after their father died. Their spouses accompanied them across the country for one purpose – closure. The three siblings wanted to retrace the steps of their father on that fateful night, see the waters and sites he would have encountered, and find the cottage in which the young family stayed. With the help of Teddy Crosby, the siblings are able to pinpoint the exact location of the Robert French cottage – present day Nauticus Marina. Teddy was a young boy during the war efforts at Crosby Yacht Yard, but he remembered vividly the Robert French cottages and recounted stories of the soldiers from his youth. With the mystery finally solved, the brothers and their sister walk up the hill and look back towards the water. The same way their dad had decades before them. It was a moment in time that none will forget. – Jennifer Williams The Ahlquist story is included in the “WWII: Osterville Remembers,” an exhibit running through September at the Osterville Historical Museum.

  22. 22. cont’d The confluence of three Barnstable Bays – North, West, and Cotuit – comprise one sensitive and beautiful ecosystem that for hundreds of years has been the lifeblood of the southern Mid-Cape’s recreational, shellfishing, and wildlife habitats. Three Bays is a “classic” estuary with a river flowing into the headwater, the Marstons Mills River, and the saltwater flowing in from Nantucket Sound through the two inlets, one into Cotuit Bay and one into West Bay. There the fresh and salt water mix within the system, creating a unique environment. In recent decades this area has experienced shellfish depletion, the proliferation of algae blooms, and elevated fecal-coliform counts. However, since 1996 one advocacy group has worked singularly to restore and protect the Bays’ habitats to ensure a diverse, balanced, and healthy population of fish, shellfish, wildlife, and plants so that the area continues to thrive – and its residents will be able to enjoy its pristine waters for generations to come. That group is Three Bays Preservation (TBP). Three Bays Preservation Rx for Healthy Waters 25 THREEBAYS www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Photos courtesy of David Hansen
  23. 23. 26 THREEBAYS With a mission to preserve, maintain, protect and enhance the Three Bays’ watershed, as well as deal with the rapid erosion of the Dead Neck/Sampson’s Island area, TBP has been one busy group. According to Executive Director Lindsey Counsell, “We have restored the flushing of many of our navigation channels and as a result we were able to rebuild Dead Neck/Sampson’s Island, the wildlife sanctuary we co-own with Mass Audubon. We have provided water- quality monitoring data that was used to establish a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) for nitrogen for the three bays.” In fact, he notes, the group’s work developing fecal coliform data eventually lead to the development of a daily-load benchmark used throughout the entire Cape region. Starting small in 1996, this grass-roots organization has grown to include 685 active members, and many volunteers, as well as online members. Today, the group is working on several projects – all with the specific aim of protecting and preserving this fragile area. “We are participating in ongoing programs including a variety of water-quality monitoring efforts, invasive-species monitoring, herring counting in the Marstons Mills River and county-wide water quality programs,” says Counsell. These water-quality improvements mean cleaner shellfishing in the region. “We also are actively participating in the 208 Cape Cod Area Water Quality Management Plan Update.” Osterville resident Richard Largay is President of the group’s Board of Directors and is committed to protecting this important region. “It’s a part of the fabric of this entire area. So it’s about the preservation of the fabric of our community as well as the natural beauty.” – Karyn Kuhn
  24. 24. 27 THREEBAYS www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Paddle and Help Central to the TBP’s mission is the Annual Paddle for the Bays: RACE Cape Cod, now in its fifth year. This event includes a series of paddle races, in which participants traverse either a five- or 10-mile course on a stand-up-paddle or kayak. Racers start at Ropes Beach in Cotuit, and continue through West, North, and Cotuit Bays, vying for the now-coveted title “Best Paddler on Cape Cod.” There are separate races for different age categories as well as a slate of Paddle Day activities for the whole family, including a RACE dinner at Veteran’s Hall in Osterville the night before the event. “For the race we had more than 100 participants in the paddle board and kayak categories,” says Counsell. “But for Paddle Day itself, more than 200 folks took part and many were able to get out on the water and experience paddle boarding and kayaking for the first time.” He adds, “The purpose of these events is to raise awareness of the condition of the bays and to raise funds for our programs.” This year, the dinner is slated for Friday, Sept. 18 from 6-9 pm, followed by the race itself the following morning, Saturday, Sept. 19 with registration starting at 7 am.

  25. 25. 29 CLAMBAKE www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Clambakes, a time-honored tradition here in Osterville, are often the culinary centerpiece for weddings, neighborhood parties, and family gatherings. Jason Maguire at Osterville Fish explains that there are two styles of clambakes. The pot style clambake is more portable, and can be cooked outdoors over a fire or in your kitchen on the stove. The other is the pit style. The difference? Both are delicious, but there’s a unique, sea-salty, smoky flavor that the more labor-intensive pit bake delivers. Osterville native Edna Farrington and her family have hosted pit style clambakes at their home for 53 years. In 1960, Edna’s sewing circle decided to have a clambake to cook the clams their husbands brought home fresh from the beach. Edna’s husband, John B., designed special metal baskets to hold the food and long rakes to scrape the embers. Together they perfected the art of the clambake, and their methods are still used today by their children, according to their son John, the retired Fire Chief of Centerville-Osterville-Marstons Mills. Edna is still in charge after 54 years and now the extended family hosts 150 people for their annual bake. A typical clambake menu includes steamer clams, potatoes, linquica sausage, onions, and corn on the cob along with chowder, cold potato salad, coleslaw and watermelon for dessert. Of course, every family adds their own unique ingredients. You can create your own, or opt to have your clambake catered. According to Osterville Fish’s Maguire, prices per person vary depending on the cooking method (pot or pit), size of your party and menu choices, but generally range $30 to $45 per person. Savor the local flavor: Clambake! cont’d
  26. 26. 30 CLAMBAKE RULES AND SAFETY MEASURES FOR PIT STYLE If you decide to go “old school” with a pit bake and do it yourself, you are free to have one in your private beach or backyard. However, clambakes are prohibited on all Osterville and Barnstable town beaches. Please contact the local Fire Department to see if a permit is required for your situation. Remember to wear fire-proof gloves, use long rakes for raking the ashes, and rake the ashes onto a stone patio or driveway. Wear long pants and shirts when dealing with the fire and steam, and hose down the soil at the edge of the sealed canvas, so the canvas won’t catch fire from any leftover ashes. PREPARING A PIT BAKE Preparing a pit bake is not for the faint of heart. It takes a team of enthusiastic volunteers to help with planning, purchasing, set-up, serving, and clean-up. Here’s a peek at how the Farrington Family prepares their authentic Cape Cod clambake for 150 people: Clams are flushed the day before and the rockweed (12 bushels) is gathered from the Cape Cod Canal. Stones are brought into the back yard and laid in a 5' by 5' pit that is 10" deep. Wood is placed across the stones in a lattice pattern, stuffed with newspaper, and lit on fire. The fire burns for 3½ to 4 hours and then long rakes are used to pull the embers off onto the driveway. The wet rockweed is placed over the hot rocks. Metal baskets are filled with meats (first layer), clams and lobster (second layer), potatoes, corn and onions (top layer). Instead of metal baskets, cheesecloth bags tied at the ends may be used instead. Small canvases are placed over the food and then two large tarps are secured with dirt on the outer edge for steaming. A ventilation hole will happen naturally. Photo courtesy of Barbara Hansen Photo courtesy of Christopher Sheehy
  27. 27. 31 CLAMBAKE www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org After one hour, the potatoes and onions are tested for doneness. While the food is steaming, the broth is prepared in a large turkey fryer containing onions, linguica sausage, and clams. Mussels dipped in sherry and butter are the traditional appetizer for the Farrington bake. Potato salad, watermelon, and lots of homemade desserts complete the feast. After the clambake, the hole is filled in and the grass is reseeded. OPTING FOR POT-STYLE If that all sounds too daunting, a pot- style process is an easy alternative. Recipes abound on line and in locally published cookbooks – or just ask your native Cape Cod neighbors for their family recipe. Most are happy to share. Choosing whether to host your clambake catered or do it yourself on the stove or in a fire pit depends on the occasion, your budget, and the number of guests. Whichever method you choose, your guests will relish the tradition and the taste, just like the Farringtons. – Diane Spencer Catering, Takeout, Events Creative Clambakes Osterville 508.843.2759 creativeclambakes.com Osterville Fish Osterville 508.420.0500 clambakesetc.net Wimpy’s Seafood Café Osterville 508.428.6300 wimpysseafoodcafe.com SUNDAY, JUNE 28th, 2015 21st Annual Cape Cod Clambake 5:15 PM Join your friends and neighbors under the tent on the lawn at the Osterville Village Library for a community clambake provided by Creative Clambakes.

  29. 29. 33 CLAMMING:HOW-TOGUIDE www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Dig Your Own! Clamming in Osterville cont’d Oysters, soft-shell clams, quahogs – oh my! There’s nothing better than these fruits of the sea, and the best way to ensure you’re getting the freshest shellfish is to harvest them yourself. It’s great family fun and a wonderful way to introduce the kids to a lifelong activity, the importance of environmental preservation, and the concept of “catch and eat local.” REGULATIONS AND PERMITS To get started, you’ll want to check with the Town of Barnstable’s Marine Environmental Affairs Division regarding the regulations and permitting for recreational shellfishing. A great resource is the town’s Natural Resources website at TownofBarnstable.us/NaturalResources/ Shellfishing.asp. Permits may be purchased at the town’s Marine and Environmental Affairs Office, located at 1189 Phinney’s Lane in Centerville, or through the mail to this address. If you’re a first-timer, Amy Croteau, Town of Barnstable’s Natural Resources Officer, says it’s best to go in person. The staff can answer your questions and provide helpful maps and other materials to help you get started. Fees range from $30 for a resident family permit to $120 for a non-resident family permit (or $60 for a seasonal family permit). For seniors – over 65 – the fee is $20. The Three Bays (Cotuit, North and West) are all great areas to shellfish, but make sure your intended destination is open. Natural Resource Supervisor Doug Kalweit says closed areas are always posted, but adds that the easiest way to check is to access the maps on the town’s website at TownofBarnstable.us/NaturalResources/areamaps.asp. These maps are constantly updated throughout the year. The state – with assistance from the town – routinely tests the water quality of Barnstable’s waters and will close any contaminated areas. Areas are also periodically closed for shellfish propagation.
  30. 30. THE TOOLS Clamming only requires a few simple tools: • A permit • A quahog and/or steamer (soft-shell clam) rake • A 10 quart wire mesh peck basket or plastic bucket • A shellfish gauge for measuring your catch • A tide chart • Waders, hip boots or knee boots • Protective gloves • Small (garden) hand rakes and trowels for young diggers KEEP THEM FRESH Once you’ve harvested your legal limit, make sure to heed this advice garnered from the Barnstable Association for Recreational Shellfishing (shellfishing.org) and Croteau: • Fresh quahogs and oysters should not be kept uncooked for much over a week. It’s best to eat soft-shell clams within three days. • Keep shellfish fresh by storing in an open container covered with a damp towel in a refrigerator. Coolers with ice are OK at harvest time but will not suffice for more than a few hours. • When you dig soft-shell clams, bring a plastic bucket and fill with clean saltwater from the same area. After washing off the clams with cold water, leave the clams in the saltwater for a couple of hours, and they will clean themselves of inside sand and grit. However, leaving them in the water overnight will either highly stress or kill some or all of your catch. 34 CLAMMING:HOW-TOGUIDE • A permit is required. • Shellfish may be taken only by hand or rake. • Never shellfish in closed areas. • Be prepared to get wet! • Low tide is the best time for shellfishing. • Waders, hip boots or knee boots are recommended. • Protective gloves are necessary.
  31. 31. 35 CLAMMING:HOW-TOGUIDE www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org NEW TO SHELLFISHING? TAKE A CLASS! If you or your children (or grandchildren) are new to shellfishing, a great way to get oriented is to sign up for a class. The Town of Barnstable’s Clamming Classes for Kids are held at the Bridge Street Landing in Osterville. This year’s classes will be on June 14 at 4:30 pm, June 20 at 9:00 am, and June 21 at 10:00 am. To register for a class, you can stop by the Natural Resource Office in Centerville or call the office at 508.790.6272. The Barnstable Association for Recreational Shellfishing offers classes for adults as well. Please visit shellfishing.org for a schedule of the upcoming classes. The Natural Resources staff and town shellfish volunteers are available to assist any digger who wants the help. Be prepared to get wet! Shellfish live in wet sand that gets covered by saltwater when the tide is high. Kalweit estimates that there were more than 2,850 recreational permits issued in 2014, but wishes more folks took advantage of these classes. “Many folks don’t know the difference between a little neck and steamer,” he says. “We want to help them get the most out of their experience. There’s nothing more rewarding than getting outside and digging your own dinner.” – Claudia Mahoney

  36. 36. Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow More than just a Village Library Susan Belekewicz, Executive Director Osterville Village Library Since recently joining the Osterville community as the Library’s new Executive Director, I have learned, first hand, that Osterville is a delightful and welcoming place, full of tradition, history and its very own flair. The library is and has always been the heart of this village, which is why the relationship between the village and the Director is so special. The original Osterville Free Library opened its doors 133 years ago, in January of 1882, on the current site of Oyster Island Emporium. The move to establish the library was led by William Lloyd Garrison, son of the famous Boston Abolitionist and a summer resident of Wianno: at the time, it was the third library on Cape Cod. Throughout the library’s distinguished history, there have been many temporary custodians – I am but one in a long line. Thinking in those terms, the responsibility is a bit daunting as well as humbling, but more than anything it is an absolute privilege to serve this institution. Recently, the library has changed dramatically. In keeping with the Osterville tradition of “nothing but the best”, in 2012, the library was transformed from a dated building (circa 1958) which had previously housed a Five and Dime Store, to a modern new 21st century high-tech structure. And in keeping with the structural change and expansion, so too, the community’s expectation of the role for its library is changing and expanding. Now, our task is to fulfill the community’s expectations of their 21st century library by heightening our impact on the lives of our village’s residents. To accomplish this task, we will need to implement high quality cultural, social and intellectual programs that fulfill the needs of all constituents. The library also has an obligation to work with the community to successfully preserve the treasures of 20th century Osterville for future generations before they are lost. The Osterville Village Library Today The Osterville Library 1958-2011 41 FRESHPERSPECTIVE www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org cont’d
  37. 37. The History Room of the Library currently houses books, letters, and pictures from Osterville “of days gone by” that were painstakingly preserved by my predecessors. As homes of old Osterville families are being emptied for sale, we must make every attempt to save items that will be of important historical significance to the village and its residents in the future. Perhaps the most significant challenge the library must face is to provide for its ongoing support. Unlike municipal libraries, the Osterville Village Library is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. While the Town of Barnstable generously grants 35% of the annual operating budget to the Library, the remaining 65% of the funding to support annual operations must be raised through the generosity of the community. There is a significant difference between the old operating budget and the new one. As such, it is incumbent upon us to grow our endowment, special event income and annual appeal commensurate with the requirements to support our current operations. Bake sales, book sales, and the annual clambake are no longer enough to support our needs. But, while we are growing and evolving into our 21st century “self”, it is incumbent upon us to retain the charm of the rich traditions that have always made the library important to the village. Golf tournaments, clambakes, and Christmas teas have become the mainstay for Osterville residents over the years. And of course, the summer concerts on the Library’s green are the highlight of the season. Generations of Osterville children and summer residents have created family memories having picnics while listening to concerts on the green. Now, those who were children are bringing their grandchildren to these same concerts. This kind of American tradition is priceless and must continue. So with a thank you to our longtime patrons and open arms to the youth and young families in our community today, we will mix old traditions with new, and continuously evolve. During my time at its helm, as the history of this institution continues to be written, I look forward to leading the library through its transformation into a vital 21st century cultural, social and intellectual center for this community, so that both today’s and tomorrow’s philanthropists will want to ensure the library continues for the next 133 years. – Susan Belekewicz 43 FRESHPERSPECTIVE www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org To learn more how you can help us sustain this special place, visit OstervilleVillageLibrary.org.
