In early spring, 2006, a small group of concerned
citizens gathered to discuss the idea of creating a West
Falmouth Village Association that would be inclusive of all residents and
taxpayers of West Falmouth and one that would be similar to other
associations in the town.
An interim Board was established and we held our
first community wide meeting in July, 2007 to introduce our plan
and encourage members to join. Our membership now numbers over
330 and we have a Board of Directors with officers in place.

To: Interested supporters of the West Falmouth Swift Memorial Park Tennis Courts
Letters from the community are requested in support of the tennis courts grant application.
This is for a CPC grant to upgrade the West Falmouth tennis courts under the Recreation element of the CPC. The grant will be finalized by Helen Kennedy, Falmouth Recreation Department, about June 20 with deadline to CPC June 26. Letters from residents may be included in the proposal and are an important part of the application.
This project enhances an area or structure for a significant group of citizens and promotes a balance between cost and the public good. The Swift Playground has a great community involvement in its development. CPC funds are not for new construction. The tennis courts exist and are in need of repair.
Please include a description of your own personal use of the courts or your personal knowledge of others using the courts in your letter of support.
Email your individual letters before June 20, 2014, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Town of Falmouth, Community Preservation Committee, 59 Town Hall Square, Falmouth, MA 02540

Swift Playground Ready for Summer
The newly renovated Swift Playground on Blacksmith Shop Road in West Falmouth is open and ready for summer. The renovation, which was the dream of West Falmouth teenager Jake Barry, was recently commemorated with a stone engraving to recognize the efforts of those involved.
