CCA Events for 2018
...to promote appreciation of the arts
The Tanglewood Marionettes will be returning to the Cataumet Club Clubhouse to perform! Please bring along something to donate to our Non-Food Drive for the Bourne Food Pantry. NEW /UNOPENED paper products, cleaning products, health and beauty products. Stay tuned for upcoming date for 2018!
...to encourage conservation and preservation of lands and maintenance of public parks
Our playground is the heart of the Village and with the new equipment installed in 2012 it has never looked better. In 2014 the Town of Bourne partnered with the students at Upper Cape Technical school to install "Little Free Public Libraries" in all of Bourne's villages. Please enjoy the books that are placed in our library at the entrance to Washington Park playground and feel free to donate! The CCA will also continue to look for ways to enhance and maintain this special gathering place for our local families.
...to grant scholarships to deserving local students
We are trying something different this year to attract more Scholarship Candidates. In addition to students from Cataumet applying through Bourne High School, CCA is going to expand on the process. We are going to send out our own application, which is an edited version used by Bourne High School. Students will mail them back to CCA, and our Scholarship Committee will review them along with those from Bourne High School. CCA is also offering scholarships to deserving Cataumet students returning to college and previous recipients who re-apply. CCA Scholarship Application.docx
...to provide social relief to the needy
For the fourth year, the CCA will sponsor a non-food food drive to benefit the Bourne Friends Food Pantry. We ask for donations of items that do not qualify for food stamps: paper goods, health, beauty and cleaning supplies. These items are in great demand at the Food Pantry but not typically donated. In the past we have been able to deliver multiple carloads to the food pantry and we received cash donations as well.
