You won’t want to miss this year’s Annual Summer Gathering on Wed., July 31 at Doten Farm!

Cornellians and their families are in for quite a treat.

Back by popular demand, our annual summer get-together will be held on July 31 from 5 to 7 pm at Doten Farm in Plymouth’s historic and scenic Chiltonville neighborhood—only ten minutes from the Sagamore Bridge. Bring your favorite beverage; we’ll provide the burgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs, plus salads and dessert.

The original farmhouse was built in 1740, near to Plimoth Patuxet (formerly known as Plimoth Plantation), and only a little more than a century after the Pilgrims arrived. It was built for Edward Doten, a descendant of Edward Doty who has been identified as one of two “servants” to Stephen and Elizabeth Hopkins. They and their four children were among the first permanent European settlers in the area, having arrived on the Mayflower in 1620. (In fact, one of the Hopkins family daughters was born during the journey aboard the Mayflower and, fittingly, named Oceanus.)   

The main farmhouse now is the home of Frank Creedon ’81, who again has graciously offered to host our gathering and show us around. Much of the property on Doten Road was part of the original farm, and several of the farm’s outbuildings remain, including its barn and caretaker’s cottage. 

Fee for this event is only $10 per person for alumni and guests. It is free for incoming and current students, and for their parents and siblings.

Please register by Thursday, July 25, so we know how much food to purchase.

For any questions, email CCCapeCod@cornell.edu.

We look forward to seeing you!
