Cape Cod Celebrates the International Year of the Periodic Table at the Sandwich Public Library - Sunday, December 15
The International Year of the Periodic Table Cape Cod Science Cafe is an event for everyone. Students in grades K-8 will enjoy and learn about the Periodic Table through hands-on activities while older students and adults will learn from the lecture by the American Chemical Society's International Activities Committee Chair, Dr. Jens Breffke, as he discusses the history of the Periodic Table and how scientists around the world have celebrated this 150-year-old discovery by Dmitry Mendeleev during 2019, the International Year of the Periodic Table. There will be two seatings for the lecture portion of the event: 1pm and 2pm. You must RSVP using Eventbrite to reserve a spot for either of the identical lectures as seating at this event is limited. If you RSVP and can no longer attend, please cancel your ticket so it can be open to another guest.

The Sandwich Town Archives is proud to announce that the Sandwich Observer has been digitized and is ready to search. The Sandwich Observer was a local newspaper published between 1845 and 1899, as close as we can determine and included local news, advertisements and entertainment in the form of short stories or anecdoates. The Sandwich Observer can be searched by keyword or browed by date of publication. Thanks to Community Preservation funding, we will soon be adding digitized content of the Sandwich Independent and others.  You can see The Sandwich Observer HERE.
