Cape Cod 4 The Troops: Volunteers Provide Christmas Care Packages For Deployed Troops

One of the top “feel good” moments of the year is the Christmas Care Packages for the Troops event held at the Quality Inn, Trowbridge Road, Bourne. An army of volunteers lead by Michele DeSilva packaged socks, snacks, personal items, and much more into boxes to be mailed to deployed troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere around the world. Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops started in 2005 by Dylan DeSilva who wanted to honor our Troops…Approximately 1,200 boxes will soon be mailed from the East Harwich Post Office. Salute!

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown. As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and a.s owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis. Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
