It all started with a ‘Sandwich Story Tree’ at the annual Festival of Trees in St Peter’s Church, in December 2013. Using large luggage labels, BASH asked visitors to write messages of greeting to the people of Sandwich MA, or to share their own stories or memories of Sandwich. They could then hang the labels on the Story Tree. The resulting labels, with the first greetings from one Sandwich town to another, were included in the Messages to Massachusetts parcel.
Our BASH post boxes were launched at The Sandwich Food Fayre in early May 2014. BASH volunteers Jan Cooper and Jim Marshall gathered over 70 postcards of greetings during the event. Jim’s Cape Cod sandwich tribute – the Lobster Pot – even won second prize in the annual sandwich competition!
