Recently the Wampanoag Indian Tribe was recognized by the US government.  For decades, the tribe has worked toward recognition.  As the Indians who helped the Pilgrims survive in a new world, their place in history has always been fact. Their web page http://mashpeewampanoagtribe.com/ has useful and informative history, culture, and current articles.  There are updates about the tribe's business activities, events, and agendas on the website.  They have videos and pictures about various topics. If you are coming to Cape Cod for the summer, see if they have a local event planned.  The annual Pow-Wow every summer is an interesting view of history and culture.  Indians from all over the US and other Americans come to participate. Mashpee MA has been developed over the years as a summer res...

Please come and support a great event benefiting dogs in need.  The second annual "Dogs Allowed" event will take place Saturday July 19th in Mashpee on the green.  Please visit http://www.hotdiggityonline.com/events.php In the world of Real Estate short sales and foreclosures are a very real fact in today's market.  Families are being uprooted and so are their pets.  Dogs, cats, horses and other pets are being left behind, dropped off at the pound or local shelters.   With limited space and funds "no kill" shelters are forced to turn animals away and send them to almost certain death.  Some rescue groups are taking in the animals in hopes that once owners find suitable housing they will return to reclaim their beloved pets.  http://www.mspca.org/site/News2?page=NewsArticle&id=11361&news...

We all know we can network at business events, but how many of us get involved in our community?  The town of Mashpee has agreed to donate land to a dog park, and we need to get a committee together fast.  We are raising money for both the Sampson Fund and the Dog Park Fund on Saturday July 19th.  The second annual Dogs Allowed Event is sure to be a blast and we need and your four legged friends there. Please go to www.hotdiggityonline.com and click on events for more info.  Contact me if you want to be a part of this unique committee, I've already met a couple that just moved here from PA and wants to buy a home after they rent for 6 months..

On May 6, 2008, there were just over 1900 properties in the pre-foreclosure stages on Cape Cod.  With some 140,000 homes on the Cape, this is only a small fraction of real estate on Cape Cod.   Less than half of those homes are second homes, and this does not account for commercial properties.  Most homes on Cape Cod are owner occupied, even though some specific communities have more than 50% vacation home or investment status. Mashpee is between Falmouth and Barnstable, the two largest towns on Cape Cod.  Mashpee includes the areas know as New Seabury and Popponesset.  Mashpee is the home of the recently recognized Wampanoag Indian tribe.  Unfortunately, Mashpee has one of the largest percentages of pre-foreclosures on Cape Cod.  With roughly 8,000 residences in Mashpee, the 206 pre-fo...
