The Mattapoisett Lions Club wishes to express our appreciation to the many volunteers who helped make this year’s Harbor Days a huge success. This week-long festival has grown over the past 28 years and it really does “take a village” to prepare and execute all of the events. We thank all of the Lions that participated and the large number of friends, family and neighbors who helped accomplish so much in such a short period of time.
The club is grateful to the advertisers, sponsors, vendors, entertainers, crafters and of course, the thousands of patrons. We know that the traffic and congestion can be bothersome at times, and we acknowledge the patience of the locals. We especially want to thank Barry Denham and the Highway Department, the Mattapoisett Fire and Police Departments, the Selectmen’s office, and the Council on Aging. Also, for the assistance of the Harbormaster, Boy Scout Troop 53, the ORR Swim Team, and the ORR Football Team.
Our President, Attorney Joe Murray, along with the Harbor Days committee has been working on the details for months, and we have already begun working on Harbor Days 2013.
100 percent of the net proceeds from Harbor Days are donated to Lions Club International Sponsored charities such as Lions Eye Research, as well as community projects.
