[ARCHIVED] Sandwich Boardwalk Salvaged Planks

the gang

The Town has begun the next phase of connecting donors with the 455 engraved Sandwich Boardwalk planks recovered from the Mill Creek saltmarsh after January’s vicious storm. The planks, part of the 220 feet of Boardwalk torn from the main structure, were carefully separated, tagged and logged on a spreadsheet last month by a group of volunteers known as the Plank Gang. 

The Plank Gang consisted of members of the Geezer Brigade who helped raise money and build the existing walkway in 1992, volunteers from the Friends of the Sandwich Boardwalk, and eight members of the Sandwich High School Key Club: Kate Cowan, Brigid Kelly, Caitlin Kelly, Kaitlyn Landry, Katelyn Lerch, Abby MacLachlan, Riley Spurr and Jacob Sullivan.
