Community Built by its Residents
Volunteers run the show at Southport. It’s a great place to put your skills to the test. Have a flair for leadership? An elected Board of Governors tackles planning and day-to-day decision-making for the condo association. Like to write? Join one of the communications teams that publish the resident website, monthly newsletter and a literary magazine. Like to organize? The Social Committee is always looking for people to suggest and run events like the charity Fashion Show, Halloween Ball, Kentucky Derby Party, Italian Night, Holiday Pot Luck Dinner and that queen of all Southport social events, the annual elegantly catered New Year’s Eve celebration. They also arrange a variety of trips off property—boat rides, dine-arounds, beach bonfires, as well as shopping, museum and theater trips to Boston, Providence and beyond.
Like to volunteer your time to the community at large? Southport is home to the most generous and creative volunteers on Cape Cod. We are located within walking distance of the Mashpee Middle and High School, and the Scholarship Committee raises thousands of dollars each year for Mashpee High School senior scholarships. The Mashpee Falcons volunteer countless hours to tutor and mentor students in all grades, and have received warm recognition from the town for their efforts. The Vye Larkin committee runs a yearly Giving Tree to benefit needy neighbors resulting in a truly impressive array of gifts to make the holidays brighter, and our Veterans Committee conducts a toy drive for the children at nearby Joint Base Cape Cod. Others work on town and county committees or volunteer at their place of worship, and civic associations, such as the League of Women Voters and Habitat for Humanity.
