About Truro Treasures
Truro Treasures began in 1992 when several community members, most notably Betty Groom and Boo Houstoun, envisioned a fall weekend for children and adults to raise money to help save the Highland Lighthouse, and to promote community pride and interest in Truro. As a result, a non-profit organization,Truro Treasures, was created to sponsor the event. Since then, Truro Treasures has evolved and expanded into an annual fall weekend event that is crammed full of activities.
The Mission of Truro Treasures is to sponsor a weekend of fun for the entire town of Truro that builds community spirit. Many events are free, and when funds are raised, they are given back to various local non-profit organizations. 2011 grants were awarded to: Cape Cod Hospital Auxiliary-Orleans Branch, Carrie Seaman Animal Shelter,Chamber of Commerce, CPC Truro Preschool Program (Puppet Workshop),Dexter Keezer Fund, Friends of the Truro Council on Aging, Highland Affordable, Highland Museum & Lighthouse (Flying Santa), Mass Appeal, "Open Strings" at Truro Central School, TEEA, Truro Concerts Committee, Truro Council on Aging, Truro Historical Society, Inc., Truro Treasures High School Senior Annual College Scholarship
This year's theme, celebrating the 21st anniversary of Truro Treasures, is "Hopper, Thoreau, Millay and more…”. The weekend begins on Friday with a photographic journey through Edward Hopper's Truro, an evening cocktail party, followed by Saturday and Sunday activities including a pancake breakfast, arts & crafts show, flea market, kids events, antique appraisals, silent art auction and live art demonstrations, Saturday evening dinner, 5k run/walk, golf tournament, Highland Center tour, Truro Police Department Tour and K-9 demonstration, antique and classic car show, adult treasure hunt, our closing event, the grape stomp and jazz festival, prose and poetry night, and much more!
Many THANKS to all the volunteers, businesses and organizations that helped, in some way, to make our 2011 weekend such a great success!!
