Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation has awarded Wareham based, Cultural Connection, Inc. $500.00 in support of the charitable events they have planned for 2017. Year-long programs include the 4th Saturday Contra Dance, in partnership with Boys & Girls Club in Onset, Celebrate Salsa each first Saturday in partnership with the Wareham Historical Society at their Old Methodist Meeting House in the downtown Wareham Swan District. Summer programs include the Free Onset Film Festival featured each Thursday evening beginning on June 29 at dusk (activities start at 7PM) running until August 17 at the Band Shell in Onset, The Onset Sandcastle Festival on August 19 and the Onset Beach Kite Festival on September 2nd in partnership with the Onset Bay Association, Inc.

Also in 2017, Cultural Connection has been awarded $500.00 from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, for the Onset Sandcastle Festival, $620.00 for free movies from the Wareham Cultural Council, $1900.00 from the Wareham Community Events Committee for advertising reimbursement and $2500.00 from the United Way of Greater New Bedford to create a STEM based Rocket n Robotics Festival.

Cultural Connection would like to salute three new major contributors this year so far, Dog Days Coffee Shop in Onset, Affordable Driveways of Wareham and SERVPRO of Plymouth/Wareham. They join our growing family of supporters working toward making Greater Wareham a world class competitor in the destination industry.

Last year our supporter family donated cash or in-kind services that shepherded all our programs, they include: BB’s Restaurant, Cape Cod Collectibles, Chapman, Cole & Gleason Funeral Home, Chuck’s Auto, Cranberry Self Storage, Eastern Bank, Flagship Cinemas, Lindsey’s Restaurant, Mark Anthony’s Pizza, Marc’s Auto Service, Onset Village Market, Quahog Republic, Terry’s Home Oil and the Wareham Village Funeral Home. Those members of the public who enjoyed our programs can thank these benevolent companies by using or suggesting these involved corporate neighbors.

Of course, all of the programs we create would not be possible without our members and donations from the public, to whom we extend our sincerest thanks.
