Dear Friends, Neighbors, and Townspeople;
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the taxpayers of Harwich for the new Public Safety Facility. It is wonderful and we hope you all had the opportunity to attend the open house and cookout held there recently. Everyone is having a hard time making ends meet these days, which means there are more people needing help, more situations that call for intervention. The Harwich Police Association prides itself on recognizing where our help is needed and how best to make someone’s situation better. As always, we like to give you a list of some of the places where the funds, you so generously provide, have been used.
This year, for our officers:
- We funded a life insurance policy for each and every member of the Department. All of the workout room equipment for our new Public Safety Facility was purchased with funds provided by the Police and Fire Associations. We support the Harwich Police Department softball team and the annual Department Children’s Christmas Party.
For the youth of our town:
- We provide funds to Harwich Little League, the Non-Alcoholic After Prom Party, the Marquis All-Star Cheering Team, Cub Scout Pack #76, the Harwich/Chatham High School Hockey Team, the Harwich Junior Theater, the National Leadership Conference, Cape Cod Eagles Baseball trip to Cooperstown, NY, Fred Thatcher memorial Scholarship Fund, Angelo Champ Scholarship Fund at Cape Tech, Nicholas Xiarhos Scholarship Fund, the Charles Moore Skating Arena, and the Cape Cod Ecumenical Youth Ministry.
For the Educational needs of our town:
- We provide funds to the Harwich Community Learning Center After School Program, as well as the Summer Program for grades K-7, the Harwich Community Partnership Council for Early Childhood Preschool Program and Scholarships in the amount of $10,000.00 for graduating students from Harwich High and Cape Cod Tech.
Further funding in the community:
- Donations were made to the Harwich Conservation Trust, the Lower Cape Outreach, the Harwich Ecumenical Council for the Homeless, the Cape Verdean Multicultural Golf Tournament, HECH Children’s Center, Harwich Mariner’s Yearbook, Friends of Independence House of Hyannis, Hospice of Cape Cod, James McPhee Memorial Golf Tournament, Jimmy Fund PAN-Mass Challenge, Walk for Breast Cancer, Cape Cod Red Cross, Hospice of Cape Cod, National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund. We also supported the HECH Walk with Love Housing for the Homeless, the Jimmy Fund Teen Resources Clinic, and The Harwich Fire Association Golf Tournament.
We realize with this economy you may not be making contributions this year, and if that’s the case, we thank you for all you have done in the past to help, but if you are, we hope you will consider us worthy of your consideration. Please help us continue to help many others in the town, our town. Please be as generous as you can. Every dollar counts! Your donation is tax deductible. Your cancelled check is your receipt. Thank you for your consideration.
Sincerely Sergeant Adam E. Hutton-President

Powerful Winter Storm Sunday into Monday (Info as of 7 PM on 2/11) A Winter Storm Warning for the majority of the Commonwealth (except Cape Cod and the Islands). A Blizzard Watch is in effect for Essex County, Eastern Plymouth County, Barnstable County and Nantucket. Snow will overspread the area Sunday morning and will continue, heavy at times, into the day on Monday, ending during the afternoon and evening hours. The snow will be heavy and wet Sunday afternoon and evening (snowfall rates of 2 to 4 inches per hour possible). On Sunday, especially in Southeast MA, the conditions may mix with sleet, freezing rain or be all rain. Snow will be light and steady late Sunday night through Monday. Snow may linger into early Monday afternoon in Eastern MA. Heavy snow will make many roads impassable and may produce widespread power outages due to the weight of the snow on tree limbs and power lines. Strong winds will lead to blowing snow, reduced visibility, and additional power outages. SNOWFALL • Berkshires: 10 to 14 inches • North of the Mass Pike: 12 to 18 inches • Along and South of the Mass Pike: 6 to 12 inches • Essex county: 12 to 18 inches • Southern Bristol and Southern Plymouth counties: 6 to 8 inches • Coastal Plymouth county: 6 to 10 inches • Cape Cod: 4 to 8 inches • Nantucket: 2 to 4 inches WINDS Strong winds most of Monday. Northwesterly winds 35-45 mph developing early Monday morning, tapering off Monday night. Damaging wind gusts 50-65 mph for coastal MA, Cape Cod and the Islands. Blowing and drifting snow will promote reduced visibility 1/4 of a mile or less. COASTAL FLOODING For the Sunday midday high tide (1 to 1.5 feet above normal high tide), minor coastal flooding of vulnerable shore roads is likely. Any inundation of low spots should be less than 1 foot. Minor beach erosion is also possible. For the Monday early afternoon high tide (1.5 to 2 feet above normal), minor to moderate coastal flooding may occur. More significant beach erosion is possible. A coastal flood watch is in effect from late Monday morning through Monday afternoon for the MA east coast (Salisbury to Rockport, North side of Cape Cod from Sandwich to Eastham and Nantucket). Minor to moderate coastal flooding is possible Salisbury to Rockport including the Plum Island area as well as Nantucket Harbor. Moderate with pockets of moderate to major coastal flooding is possible from Sandwich to Eastham; where damage to the most vulnerable structures along the immediate shore and shoreline roads is possible due to the combination of storm surge and large breaking waves. Inundation of 1 to 3 feet in low spots is possible. Large waves of 15 to 20 feet just offshore will likely cause significant erosion of ocean exposed shorelines along Eastern MA. The erosion along the North side of Cape Cod (from Sandwich to Eastham), the ocean side of Cape Cod (from Truro to Chatham) and the East side of Nantucket may be severe in places. IMPACTS • Snowfall may result in poor visibility and difficult travel Sunday/Monday • Potential impacts to Monday morning commute • Power outages with downed limbs and power lines due to the weight of the snow • Shore roads may become impassable due to coastal flooding around Monday midday high tide There is still uncertainty in the forecast at this time.
