Saturday’s spectacular weather was a show-stopping backdrop to Latham School’s Open House and evening benefit concert by Cape Cod American Idol Siobhan Magnus.
Latham staff and board volunteers hosted two widely attended interactive Brewster in Bloom Open House tours with several planned stops. Tours commenced in the Latham Schoolhouse and traveled on to the Yawkey Dormitory, a Dog Training exhibition on the playing field, an art show in the Board Room, followed by a peek into the history of the Main House and a Student Craft and Soap Sale on the adjacent lawn. Proceeds from the Craft and Soap Sales will benefit our community partners at the Brewster Ladies’ Library. The day was capped off by a sold-out concert hosted by Guapo’s Tortilla Shack of Orleans featuring Magnus and her new band Elcodrive in honor of “Cinco de Mayo” weekend. Many Latham friends were in attendance including residents and staff of one Adult Program house cheering the performers on throughout the night. Magnus and Guapo’s have supported Latham programs previously and we appreciate all they continue to do for us.
Special thanks to the staff and volunteers who made the day such a success. In the end, Latham makes us all Bloom! We are fortunate to have such strong community support and dedicated staff and volunteers and engaged students and adult residents.
