Educational, creative and fun children’s programs are planned once a week, afternoons, during July and August. Most are held at the Memorial Library but some like the Tea Party and the Cooking Class are held at the Watch Hill Chapel Undercroft.

Boutique

Donna Simmons

The annual Summer Boutique is held every summer the first Friday and Saturday in August. This is a popular shopping venue under a large tent in the park on Bay Street. Over 18 vendors come from all over the country to sell their unusual, trendy and whimsical items. 

Art Show

Co-Chairs: Stacy Clapp, Laura Parker

On alternate years the society sponsors a community-wide show exhibiting the talents of local artists/photographers. This event is held in the Watch Hill Chapel Undercroft for a week during the middle of the summer. An artists reception kicks-off the show prior to the exhibit which is open to the public from 1 to 4 during the week in the afternoon.

Landscape Enhancement

Joan Lemp, Susan Harkins

This committee keeps the village looking trimmed, weeded and flourishing. Plants are purchased to beautify the Memorial Library and Harbor Park. The committee tends the five planted islands. Volunteers meet in the morning once a week from Memorial Day through September.

Email Joan Lemp or Susan Harkins to get involved.

Lighthouse Museum

Sitting next to the Lighthouse on the Watch Hill peninsula is a little museum housing the original Fresnel Lens, documentation and photos of historic ship wrecks and nautical activity from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. As an associate organization, the WHMLIS places volunteers at the museum on Tuesday – Thursday during July and August (and the week after Labor Day) from 1 to 3 pm.
