Mashpee is very fortunate to have a number of citizens who volunteer to serve on town committees. I would like to single out Mr. Ken Bates for the outstanding work he has done on the waterways commission for a number of years. Mr. Bates has expended hundreds of hours of time and effort working with various agencies to maintain the waterways of Mashpee. For example, his work this year was critical in dredging of the Popponessett Spit, a critical area for the flushing of Popponessett Bay. It also ensured that the homes in the area were safe. His work has also maintained our inlets for boaters. We owe Mr. Bates of debt of gratitude.
