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.

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.

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.

A Postcard Walk
Through Osterville:
Picture Perfect
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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.”

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.

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.

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).

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.”

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. To register for these events online
or for more information about the race, visit

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.

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.

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.

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.
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.

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.”

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.

FRESHPERSPECTIVE
www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org
cont’d
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.

  • 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. Wagner 1931-1996 Celebrating the H Class 100th Anniversary in 2015

  • 7. 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
  • 8. 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.

  • 13. 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.

  • 15. 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

  • 18. 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

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.

  • 23. 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
  • 24. 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.

  • 27. 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
  • 28. 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
  • 29. 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.

  • 31. 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
  • 32. 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
  • 33. 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.

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.
  • 36. 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.
  • 37. 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

  • 43. 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.

  • 44.
  • 45. 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.
