New Equipment - Better Experience: FREE ONSET FILM FESTIVAL

Coinciding with the opening of the 3rd Annual FREE ONSET FILM FESTIVAL, Cultural Connection, Inc., underwriters of the festival supplied attendees with a new highly reflective professional screen and commercial quality HD projector.

After a lengthy Sponsor & Supporter's drive and some private donations, Cultural Connection was able to purchase the equipment, "the Free Onset Film Festival is our longest running and most successful fund raiser." Cultural Connection holds fund raising events such as the Free Onset Film Festival, Contra Dances, Salsa Dances (and soon, line dances) as well as the Onset Beach Sandcastle and Kite Festivals to raise awareness and funds to improve the cultural assets in Greater Wareham. Past funds have gone to painting the benches at the band shell, refinishing the gymnasium floor at the Boys & Girls Club.  The Wareham Historical Society will soon be the beneficiary of some improvements at the Old Methodist Meeting House.

The following Greater Wareham businesses have donated to Cultural Connection, Inc. to help produce our fund raising events including the purchase of the new movie equipment. They have demonstrated their commitment to the community not just by locating their businesses here but through participation in the support of the local culture that raises this community beyond average to extraordinary. These business establishments are:  Chapman, Cole & Gleason Funeral Home, Dog Days Coffee 2 Go, Cranberry Self Storage, Facshetti & Fachshetti, Lindsey's Family Restaurant, Affordable Driveways, Wareham Village Funeral Home, Mainly Dawgs, Meineke Muffler of Wareham, Eastern Bank, Narrows Restaurant, Cape Cod Collectables, Gateway Treasure Hunter's Club, Pier View Restaurant, Flagship Cinemas. Please support these local businesses because they are and they support your community.

The guy Paul that runs this has some strange 'community connections'. There doesn't seem to be an accounting of all of these businesses that he runs and where the money goes....follow the money....always. If I were a sponsor, I would be worried enough to ask more questions. Someone said he may not pay for the right movie licenses to show those films, as just one example. We shouldn't be using local cultural council money to fund this type of business is some of the money is going to a slush fund that fixes a church or the Boys & Girls club. Those entities should apply for themselves, or perhaps they wouldn't qualify for the money....and that's the reason....
