SAVE THE DATE:  Whitman Day 2023: Saturday June 10th!

Whitman Day 2022 was a "homerun"

Whitman Day started with a puppy parade at Hobart's Pond led by Lt. Michael Loring K-9 officer and ended at the Welcome Tent next to the basketball courts.  FREE music, art and activities were offered all day long, for all ages.  Food was available for purchase from our Troop 22 and High School Band Boosters, and the Tailgaters Food Truck - sausages, hot dogs, french fries and fried dough.  The weather was beautiful, a little hot for some, but we finally got to come together with friends, family and neighbors to celebrate Whitman Day!  Thank you to all the town departments, groups, organizations, businesses and clubs who participated in this community wide festival!  We are looking forward to next year, Whitman Day on Saturday, June 10th, 2023!  SAVE THE DATE!

The answer is:
Whitman, Massachusetts!

To celebrate this, the Whitman Cultural Council is giving a Chocolate Chip Cookie sticker to the first 2,000 attendees at Whitman Day.  Stop by our WELCOME TENT next to the basketball courts to get your free Whitman Day 2022 sticker!

But, Whitman is much more than a CC Cookie- we are home to Regal Shoe Factory, the first bell foundry and a historic,  architecturally designed, Olmsted park.  We have a lot to celebrate in Whitman on #WhitmanDay Saturday, June 25th
The residents of Whitman are so fortunate to have a steady volunteer group at our local Food Pantry.
These dedicated folks are available to answer your call when you are in need of food assistance.
The Whitman Cultural Council invites all attendees who are coming to Whitman Day on Saturday June 25th to bring a non-Perishable food item to donate to The Food Pantry.  

Collection areas will be at the Welcome Tent and near the Bandstand/Gazebo. Stop by the Gazebo area and meet the amazing Food Pantry volunteers.  If you wish to make a tax deductible monetary donation, checks can be made payable to SVDP (St Vincent DePaul)
The Whitman food pantry is located at 44 Blake St in the Milligan Safe Co. building and can be reached at 781-447-8560.

The Land for Whitman Park was donated by Augustus Whitman in 1880.  The original survey & plans were designed by Ernest W. Bowditch, engineer and landscape designer, 1881.  In 1900 and 1931, plans were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. and his brother John Charles Olmsted.  The Whitman Town Park was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
