From Wild Care Cape Cod:
Wild Care Inc, a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center in Eastham, has been honored by having their Executive Director, Stephanie Ellis, chosen as the 2018 Eastham Windmill Weekend Parade Grand Marshal, by the Eastham Windmill Weekend Committee.
The process began with the solicitation of nominees and the community at large. The committee’s decision to honor Stephanie Ellis was due to, “...her community contributions especially in the areas of wildlife rehabilitation, and community education consistent with this year’s theme, “Eastham Celebrates Animal Life”. Wild Care will take part in Windmill Weekend festivities September 7th through September 9th, including the Windmill Weekend opening ceremony on September 7th at the Eastham Elk’s Lodge, a vendor booth on Windmill Green, September 8th & 9th, and a float in the parade on Sunday, September 9th from 1-2 pm.
