The Cotuit Civic Association’s annual Christmas in Cotuit celebration has become a seasonal highlight for our Village. This year’s activities will be different due to social distancing, but rest assured: Santa is on his way!
On Saturday, December 5th beginning at 2:30, Santa will be visiting Cotuit residents by fire truck with an assist from the Cotuit Fire Department. PLEASE NOTE – THIS EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6, due to predicted heavy rain on Saturday. It will still begin at 2:30. We have already received indications of interest from those who would like a visit and have planned out the routes that will be followed!
Simultaneously, the Civic Association will conduct a food and diaper drive. At the recommendation of the Cotuit Federated Church, the drive will benefit the Faith, Family and Kitchen program and Angel House, both of which serve families in need. Volunteers will pick up your contributions, making it super easy to donate—no extra effort required! In the spirit of holiday giving, the Cotuit Civic Association also will contribute $1,000 to this effort. We have already received substantial food donations at the Fire Station, and will add those to the items picked up on Sunday. The outpouring of support by Villagers has already been tremendous!! We will post pictures of the donations received as well as the diaper delivery made to Angel House before Christmas.
In addition, in conjunction with the Cotuit Center for the Arts, the Cotuit Civic Association is pleased to present the virtual lighting of the Cotuit Memorial Park Christmas tree and caroling by the Chatham Carolers. This event will take place as originally scheduled on SATURDAY, December 5, 2020 at 4 pm. Click HERE to view anytime after 4 pm on Saturday. (Remember, this is a virtual-only event. No one should gather at Memorial Park).
Here are some pictures of the great arrival of Santa to the Dock in 2018. We look forward to more normal times next year!
