It’s springtime and everyone in Brewster looks forward to our small town celebration of spring! Check out this link from the Brewster Chamber for a listing of all the exciting events – the Brewster in Bloom.

May 5th, 6th and 7th!

I love this time of year as everything is coming to life. At the CaptainFreeman, we have been busy with many new outside projects including a new salt solar heated pool, new vegetable and herb garden and a new game area in the backyard including Crouquet and Corn Hole.

This year’s calendar is filled with many exciting events. Listed below are some of our favorites:

We love our Brewster Band and savor their summer concerts on the lawn of Drummer Boy Park every Sunday evening.
