North Falmouth Branch Siding – A fitting end to a collaborative project working with the Board of Library Trustees and the Town of Falmouth – a new sign was installed on the newly shingled building.  Special thanks to the Sherriff’s Department for their labor; Michael Galasso for providing the materials; Bill Hough and The Enterprise for providing coverage on this project; and to the DPW for facilitating the exterior work, painting the trim, and doing some much needed landscaping.
