At our Annual Meeting on June 8, Manomet officially welcomed three new Trustees. Although these folks have been serving Manomet for months and were approved by the Board well before the Annual Meeting, we welcome their energy, enthusiasm and commitment.  Representing a tremendous breadth and depth of experience in business, nonprofits and education, these three individuals have and will continue to provide leadership and guidance in the years ahead.
