2019 Annual Meeting

51st Annual Meeting
Thursday, Oct. 24, 2019
Cummaquid Golf Club in Yarmouthport

Celebrating the achievements of our participants, the contributions of staff and volunteers,
and showcased the finest of abilities of the entire Cape Abilities family.


“We had a wonderful 50th Anniversary Celebration this past August, and the speakers you will hear from tonight are now very much focused on our next fifty years,” said Marion Broidrick (right), Chairperson of Cape Abilities Board, to a full house of families, friends, donors and supporters. “Our commitment to Creating Opportunities for the individuals we serve is as strong today as it was in 1968, when a group of parents came together and started Nauset Workshop.  The courage, perseverance and fulfillment of the participants we serve, the passion, professionalism and dedication of our employees, the devotion and support of the families, the tireless efforts and commitment of the volunteers, and the generosity and support of our  community partners and donors…These are the people who work behind the scenes to make this agency an outstanding leader and flagship provider for people with disabilities on Cape Cod.”

Congratulations to our Award Winners!
