Celebrate Greater Plymouth is looking for input and volunteers to develop programs to enhance the local historic downtown by using the Four Point Main Street America program - Economic Vitality - Design - Promotion - Organization. There are grants to apply for to help get our programs started and we need your support to begin the process but first we need a dream goal and this is how you can help! Our initial thought is to create a family friendly environment downtown that not only promotes family life and the interaction with the local businesses but to get active programs established uniting the arts, museums, businesses and town government.
We can bring together current programs that already exist in the area including many established by nonprofit organizations and link them together that would showcase Plymouth Americas Hometown throughout the country. We have been recognized with our newly established Plymouth Bay Cultural District in Massachusetts, now let’s expand this concept bringing in grants and donations to truly showcase Plymouth for our 400 year celebration.

Saturday Event Suggestion
Kingston Public Library
Saturday, January 14, 2017 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm
We hope you will come and greet Lilias at the opening reception for her January art exhibit. Her work is on view in the gallery and the reading area throughout the month of January. The reception is open to all.
This January, the Kingston Public Library Art Committee is proud to feature the extraordinary talents of Lilias Cingolani. As an artist, Lilias has always had the courage to explore new challenges and has brought a depth of new understanding to her subjects and for her viewers. Lilias is known nationally for her involvement in the New Art Forum which met for over 20 years in the Ye Olde Yeller Yankee Barn.
She believes that the urge to create dwells within each of us. Some savor repeating the same themes-much to their satisfaction. Others are enthralled with continued experimentation and creativity-like Picasso.
I am perpetually curious about ideas and first experimented with handmade paper imagery. This led to other surface designs from printmaking to acrylic painting, bookmaking, and collages, etc. Creating art enriches our lives.
Lilias has lived in Kingston all her life. She graduated from Simmons College with a degree in chemistry and taught in the science department at Silver Lake Regional High School. Lilias later became the school librarian.

New Years Resolution Request
Please consider volunteering in your community as a new years goal this weekend.
Celebrate Greater Plymouth has established a volunteer management program to support our events and other non-profit community organizations that are in need of help.
The community needs you!
Plymouth Resident: There is nothing in Google for South Shore Public Art, do you have any plans to add this information to your website?
Dear Plymouth Resident: Yes we now have a page for Public Art and will be adding content soon. If anyone has links we can add please contact us with that information. This site will include the Greater Plymouth vicinity.
Bourne Resident: With the success of First Saturday Plymouth downtown, would First Saturday Organization be able to help implement a similar program for the Main Street section of Bourne?
Dear Bourne Resident: First Saturday is not able to help you as their efforts are strictly based on its downtown business members however Celebrate Greater Plymouth, Inc. would be able to help and will make an effort to look into concepts that would have positive vibrant outcome for residents, local businesses and tourists alike.
