A very strange Memorial Day Weekend indeed this year! If you can, please get out and support our local restaurants, our retail shops and other businesses that are open – even if it is curbside only. Play some golf, go for a walk and grab some ice cream. The beaches are open and no beach stickers required. All come with social distancing and other restrictions but it’s worth it.  Stay safe out there and don’t forget your mask!

If you need any help navigating the MA reopening website ( https://www.mass.gov/info-details/reopening-massachusetts ) and what you need to do to comply with reopening please give us a shout. We would be happy to help you.

To all our businesses: Please continue to send us your news and updates that you would like us to share. Send to  info@sandwichchamber.com .
