PHOTO GALLERY: Fall events galore
The Cape is still a small enough place that we get to know a lot of our supporters personally. They also get to know us and the commercial fishermen who steer our organization. Some of our relationships extend back decades, others are more recent, but they all strengthen our community. We are proud of our events that connect the local fishing industry to neighbors and friends and we have had a fall full of them, so wanted to share some photos with you. Hope to see you soon!
