Fall for the Arts on Cape Cod
During the month of October 2011, the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod will present the fourth annual Fall for the Arts Festival in towns across Cape Cod. Fall for the Arts is a regional, free, family-friendly festival that showcases local art and culture.
Events include: live performances by local musicians; open houses at theaters, museums, and historical sites; readings and lectures; art activities for children; guided art and heritage walks; plein air painters; special art exhibits; and much more!
Theaters, museums, individual artists, studios, galleries, and other members of the cultural community across Cape Cod will be offering specials and discounts throughout the weekend to reach visitors and residents of all ages during this free, regional event.
Members of the Cape's creative community are encouraged to get involved with the Festival and take advantage of the free promotional opportunities offered by the AFCC for every Fall for the Arts participant.

For One of Our Own
by Kathleen O'Keefe-Kanavos
In January of 2011, one of Cape Cod's daughters who was born and raised in Yarmouth, was diagnosed with recurrent breast cancer that had metastasized into Stage 4 bone cancer.
Parris Bauer had no hope for healing from the medical community. However, she refused to believe her oncologist when he said, "Your condition is terminal. We have no drugs or therapy to help you. Go home to Cape Cod and be close to your family."
Parris began researching alternative therapy and decided to start Dr. Max Gerson's Therapy in March 2011 http://www.gerson.org/.
It has been an amazing journey.
