Dear <<First Name>> :

Thank you for being a PPRTA member. Your paid membership helps support our all-volunteer efforts to Educate, Advocate, and Build Community for part-time residents. We are the only organization providing a voice for part-time residents. Our strength is in our numbers, and we would not be able to do our work without you.

PPRTA has an annual renewal process and I want to encourage you to renew your membership now.

Your past membership allowed PPRTA to achieve so much. Just to name a few:
  • Our newsletters kept part-timers informed and safe during the height of the pandemic.
  • We raised the visibility of part-timers’ contributions to Provincetown.
  • We held frequent Zoom discussions with members and town leaders.
  • PPRTA speaks regularly before the Provincetown Select Board on matters you say are important.
  • We sponsored a members’ social gathering with our Fall Event at the Mary Heaton Vorse House.
  • PPRTA engages with, and supports, 40 local businesses through our Community Partner program.
  • PPRTA is a founding partner of the new non-profit “Friends of Provincetown Parks and Gardens”.
These significant accomplishments were only possible because of members like you. That’s why I encourage you to renew your membership.

We have much more to do such as bringing you information on:
  • Sewer expansion, and how to pay for it.
  • Broadband and how to fund high-speed internet access.
  • Housing proposals, including plans to build taxpayer funded housing projects.
  • Construction of a new police station.
  • Construction of a dedicated EMS station, and renovation of the existing fire station on Shankpainter Road.
  • And what exactly is Provincetown’s debt?
There is so much going on that affects Provincetown’s future, and part-time owners should have a say in that future.
  • PPRTA takes the pulse of our members to determine your priorities.
  • We express your priorities with Town government on your behalf.
  • We work with Town committees and non-profits alike to guide Provincetown to a vibrant future.
<<First Name>>, the PPRTA is the only organization that works for part-time residents, bringing us together in the spirit of community. You are a vital part of that community. We need you, so please, renew today.

As a member in good standing, you will be invited to join us at our annual meeting for a discussion of our direction. I look forward to seeing you at our Annual Meeting on June 5th, this year at the Provincetown Monument and Museum at 10:00am -- more to come on that.

Pat Miller, President
