The Osterville Rotary Club is pleased to have been joined by our State Senator Julian Cyr, where he spoke of his current term in office. Julian just finished the end of his first year in this position, after being elected in November, 2016 to succeed Senator Wolf. 
 
He is a lifelong Truro resident, a Nauset High School graduate, and a graduate of New York University.  And he and his family were small business owners for many years – they owned Adrian’s Restaurant in North Truro, which closed in 2012. 
 
He is Chair of the Joint Committee on Community Development and Small Business, Vice Chair of the Joint Committee on Elder Affairs, Vice Chair of the Joint Committee on Tourism, Arts, and Cultural Development, and serves on committees with oversight of public health, housing, municipalities and regional government, environment and agriculture, and social welfare. 
 
Julian has experience in public policy, health advocacy, organizing, and social justice. Prior to his election, he served in the Baker administration as director of policy and regulatory affairs for environmental health at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. And previously, under Governor Patrick, he worked closely with members of the Legislature as deputy director for government affairs at the Department of Public Health. 
 
Over the past year Julian has been focusing on a number of issues – especially housing affordability, zoning reform, state support for wastewater needs on the Cape and Islands, preparing for the decommissioning of Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station, tackling the opioid epidemic and more.

On Monday, July 3rd, the Official Dedication for the Flag Pole and Flag donated to the Town of Barnstable was held at Dowses Beach in Osterville.  The Flag Pole and Installation were gifted by the Osterville Rotary Club and the Flag, from Peter Ders, was flown over the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C. in honor of James T. Walsh, member of Congress. 

Recreation Director Patti Machado served as emcee.  It was very moving to see patrons on the beach and in the water stand at attention while Dowses Beach Supervisor Jennifer Hudock raised the flag, the Pledge of Allegiance was recited and the National Anthem was sung by Lifeguard Colleen Ellis. Town Councilor Fred Chirigotis offered thanks from the Town of Barnstable to all who were involved. Recreation Commission Vice Chair Joe O’Brien attended the event. 

A year ago July 1st, the Dowses Beach flag pole was struck by lightning and was declared a total loss.  Rebecca Richardson from the Osterville Rotary Club worked with the Club to fund a replacement flag pole. Our thanks go to the Osterville Rotary Club and Mr. Ders for their contributions.
