Event Details

Wellfleet's History is America's History ”with  Jeff Tash

 Thursdays 2-4pm   October 24-November 21  at Wellfleet Public Library

The story about Wellfleet is filled with drama.  But reading history books can often be dry and laborious.  This course strives to make our town's history compelling and fun through a collection of stories, images and other media that describe our colorful past including the many ebbs and flows of our economic development as well as the rich assortment of influential characters who over the centuries called Wellfleet their home.

Jeff Tash has owned a home in Wellfleet for the past quarter century.  Recently retired, Jeff was previously an entrepreneurial CEO and before that a corporate executive at Hewitt, DEC and IBM.  In retirement Jeff has channeled his passions for Wellfleet and computing into a popular website called WELLFLEETian.com.  In addition, he serves on multiple boards including the Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore, Wellfleet Historical Society, Wellfleet Community Forum, and Nauset Newcomers.

Organizer

Open University of Wellfleet

Open University of Wellfleet is a forum for learning more about Wellfleet's cultural history.  Conceived by retired Brown University professor Rhoda Flaxman, the Open University began in April 2013 with five four-week courses.  All courses have a Wellfleet or Outer Cape connection, with an emphasis on our local history and culture.

These courses are envisioned as directed discussions, otherwise known as collaborative learning. Readings will be assigned, and instructors will offer mini-lectures to spur focused interchanges and facilitate learning. The Spring 2014 Classes will be held once a week for two hours from April 1st through May 8th at Wellfleet Preservation Hall, Wellfleet Library or W.H.A.T. Consult course descriptions above for date, time, and place. Courses will run with a minimum of ten and a maximum of seventeen participants.
