Supporting the West Falmouth Library

” Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.” – Vera Nazarian

This past January 22nd we had the pleasure to present the West Falmouth Library with a check to aid in their library needs. This check, for the amount of $2,000, was sourced from proceeds of our New Year’s Eve Party at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel.  Our very own Clark GuinnRegional Director of Operations of Scout Hotels, hand delivered the check to the library on a sunny January day.

The vision of the West Falmouth Library is: “A thriving library that is an integral part of the lives of the community” – and one we agree with 100%. Talking to Clark as we walked into the library, you could sense that books meant the world to him and as Regional Director of Operations for Scout Hotels, he wanted to make sure that the Sea Crest Beach Hotel was giving back and supporting its local community.

The West Falmouth Library’s focus of mission is rooted in its history as a local library and community meeting place in the village of West Falmouth. Throughout its history it has served the village and the greater Falmouth community with library services and educational, informational and entertaining events. We are so very proud to have this outstanding library in our area, for it not only provides books to individuals, but a personal sanctuary to those in need of peace and quiet.

Clark spoke fondly of books, remembering how in the past books would always elevate his mood, create an escape for when times were tough, or just guided him during personal times. A man that reads countless books a year, Clark talked about how he has educated his children and family on the importance of reading and making time to read, no matter how busy you are. Because we know that next to the word “busy” in the dictionary, Mr. Guinn’s photo is shown, thus his stance on making time to read, no matter what.

We hope that the next time you visit Sea Crest Beach Hotel, you’ll make time to stop by the West Falmouth Library. It’s the perfect place for rainy day activities, quiet time with kids, and in general, the perfect space to treat yourself to a good book. You can check out their annual events, as well their library services. Leave a comment below letting us know what you’re currently reading!

The Massachusetts Lobstermen’s Association was established in 1963 by the fishermen, for the fishermen, and is presently the leading commercial fishing industry association in New England. On behalf of the 1,700 members, the MLA works to maintain both the industry and the resource. The MLA strives to be proactive on issues affecting the lobster industry and is active in the management process at both the state and federal levels.

Our Executive Chef Dan Kenney executed a delicious lobster cooking demo, where our guests had a chance to ask questions about how to cook the best lobster, as well as other seafood techniques.

His recipe for lobster risotto with shaved winter asparagus salad and warm lobster vinaigrette can be found below – it’s a recipe that takes a bit of time, but is well worth the effort!

For the past 51 years, the MLA has become a trustworthy voice for the industry on important issues, and is looked to by both the fishing industry and the management community. We are honored to be able to host them.
