Second Community Meeting sees two dozen attendees

The Official Website of the
Plymouth 400
Commemoration

Two dozen people attended Plymouth 400, Inc’s second Community Meeting on Wednesday, April 22 at the Loring Center in North Plymouth to hear Executive Director Michele Pecoraro present an update on the organization’s successes in fiscal year 2015 and its plans for the next five years leading up to and through the 2020 commemoration (which will actually end in November 2021 with an event commemorating the 400th anniversary of the Harvest Feast).
A few exciting pieces of information shared at the meeting were:
The license plate project is coming to a close! We’re still finalizing applications and getting ready to submit all 1,500+ applications to the RMV by the end of the month. A HUGE thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers who helped make this a possibility, and to everyone who purchased a plate in support of the organization! We can’t wait to see them on the roads!
As you can see, we launched a new website and we want to hear your thoughts! Shoot us an email or leave a comment on this blog and tell us what you think about the redesign.
The Plymouth 400 Partner Program has officially been rolled out, and several businesses have already signed on to become Plymouth 400 Founding Partners. This is a cross-marketing program through which businesses and organizations pledge to support Plymouth 400 through monetary or in-kind donations or marketing exposure, and we, in turn, feature each of our Partners at various Pre-Commemoration Events, on our website and social pages, and more.
This year’s Pre-Commemoration Events will be bigger than ever! We’re adding a new educational component and seafood event to this year’s Bass & Blue Tournament, and we’ve opened the fishing competition up to teams! Registration is now open for this event.
Our audience also asked some great questions and raised some compelling points, like the need for additional transportation; the opportunity to increase the rate of stay here in Plymouth for visitors (who currently come to town for only a few hours); offering more kinds of collateral for people to purchase from the organization in addition to the Plymouth 400 commemorative license plate to increase our marketing reach; and finally, leaving a lasting legacy that will be remembered come Plymouth’s 500th. We appreciate all those who shared their ideas and concerns with us and look forward to working to ensure we address these issues, and are collaborating with many local and state agencies to do so.
We were happy to see a showing of interested residents and Town Meeting members at last night’s meetings, and we will continue to host Community Meetings throughout Plymouth’s villages so that everyone has a chance to share their thoughts with us about the commemoration.
