Traffic Hearing Cancelled
Because of national election day on Tuesday, Nov. 8 and a special town meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 9, Provincetown has opted to cancel its annual traffic hearing that had been scheduled for Monday, Nov. 7. All three events take a significant amount of staff time to prepare, select board Chair Dave Abramson told the Independent, and since there were not very many proposals submitted they will be heard at subsequent select board meetings instead.
The Soup Kitchen in Provincetown, affectionately known as SKIP, is resuming its free lunch program on Monday, Nov. 7 at the Methodist Church at 20 Shank Painter Road. SKIP serves cafeteria-style meals between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m. five days a week, Monday through Friday, from November to April. There is a voluntary donation jar on the cafeteria line, and the lunches are a community affair, with large shared tables and an air of wintertime connection that participants say is as nourishing as the food itself.
SKIP relies on more than 100 volunteers and has been averaging 18,000 meals per season in recent years, according to the organization’s chair, Philip Franchini. Executive chef Gina Larkin is returning this year, which is SKIP’s 30th since its founding in 1992. —Paul Benson
