“Ramp Up for Straitsmouth” Fundraiser

May 27 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

“Ramp Up for Straitsmouth” is a fundraiser in support of the Thacher Island Association’s plan to build a new boat launch on Straitsmouth Island. The event is planned for Saturday May 27, from 5-9pm. Join us for live jazz music along with wine and appetizers. The raffle will be for the signed 16″ x 40″ canvas giclée “Straitsmouth at 6 a.m.” (pictured), a $350 value. A portion off all art sales on the 27th goes in support of the Association’s Straitsmouth Island boat ramp project.

TIA is the fund raising non-profit arm of the Town of Rockport for both islands. The goal is to raise $250,000 to build a new ramp similar to the one they have had on Thacher for the past 170 years. To date a little over half the goal has been met. The ramp will provide safe public access for the first time in 80 years; while there, visitors can enjoy the more than one mile of walking trails that have been reopened.

In addition, on Sunday May 28, from 1-4 pm, Paul St. Germain, President of the Thacher Island Association, will present a ”What’s Happening on Straitsmouth” lecture about Straitsmouth Island. It all takes place at our gallery, 8 Dock Square in Rockport, MA.

Can’t attend but would like to help? Donations can be sent c/o the Thacher Island Association, PO Box 73, Rockport, Ma 01966.
