Cove Clubhouse Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Vinfen’s Cove Clubhouse celebrated their 20th anniversary with a cookout on Friday, July 21, 2017, at their location in Harwich Port, MA. Dozens of people we serve, family, friends, and supporters joined Vinfen staff for the celebration.

According to Cove Clubhouse Program Director Jen DosSantos, the key to Cove’s twenty-year success is collaboration. “Everybody brings something to the table. Everything’s done by consensus,” she said. “It’s a lot of hard work.” In fact, Cove Clubhouse members run the clubhouse themselves, preparing meals and dividing chores in meetings. Some prepare reports for the state and others contribute to the clubhouse’s newsletters.

Several Cove alumni came back to visit in honor of the anniversary, a testament to the program’s successes and the inclusive community they have built.

The event was attended by Alan Pollock of the Cape Cod Chronicle. You can read his coverage here.
