"LOL with Randy Hunt"

Cape Codder Resort in Hyannis (Route 132 at Bearse's Way)
This is an open pricing event (pay what you can, but not more than $1,000 per person, which is the new annual political contribution limit, not that I'm implying that anyone should pay nearly that much, I mean, how much is it worth to see two of the greatest comedians in the world and eat free hors d'ouevres? Not $1,000 per person, you say? Well, that probably is a little steep, although some of these national candidates charge $35,000 a plate. Assuming that there's something actually on the plate, say chicken cordon bleu with green beans and red bliss potatoes, I'm still thinking that $35,000 is a wee bit excessive, which makes LOL with Randy Hunt the best deal going no matter what you pay.)
Call (508) 833-HUNT(4868) to reserve a seat or just IM me on Facebook.

Sandwich Republicans Award Scholarship to Daphne Vantine of East Sandwich
The Sandwich Republican Town Committee (SRTC) awarded its 2014 scholarship to Ms. Daphne Vantine, daughter of Nicholas and Linda Vantine of East Sandwich.
Applicants were required to submit grade transcripts, work and community involvement, proof of voter registration and an essay in order to be considered for the $1,000.00 scholarship.
The SRTC received applications from bright and well-rounded students involved in church, community activities, sports and charitable efforts. And while all candidates were seriously considered, our committee experienced a first this year. For the first time, in the history of awarding the scholarship, our committee unanimously voted in the first round to award this year’s scholarship to a special young lady, Miss Daphne Vantine.
A graduate of Cape Cod Academy, Daphne is a Cape and Islands Basketball All-Star and varsity basketball and soccer player who has been very involved in sports medicine and health related organizations.
Daphne’s volunteer work has included the Cape Cod Hospital, the Red Cross and Cape Cod Cares For The Troops.
Daphne will be attending the University of Delware this fall where she hopes to further her education and interests in physical therapy and rehabilitation technology that will improve the lives of athletes and veterans of the U.S. military.
