The new Barnstable Municipal Airport terminal and air traffic control tower will be dedicated officially during ceremonies Friday, May 18th at 1 p.m. on the airport grounds.
State, federal and local officials will take part in a program that includes the unveiling of commemorative plaques for the terminal and tower. The public is invited to the ceremony.
Richard A. Davey, secretary and CEO of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, is scheduled to participate along with state Senator Dan Wolf, state Representative Demetrius Atsalis and Ann Mollica, deputy administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration's New England Region.
Barnstable Town Council President Frederick Chirigotis will offer welcoming remarks, and Airport Commission Chairman Ronald Persuitte will offer closing comments. Siobhan Magnus will sing the National Anthem.
Former Congressman William Delahunt will attend to be recognized for his help in securing a federal grant to build the tower while he was in office. "It's an opportunity to celebrate the success of a remarkable intergovernmental partnership" said Airport Manager Roland "Bud" Breault.
"By working as a team, we built a 21st century airport for all of Cape Cod." He said the Town of Barnstable, the Cape Cod Commission, and the state and the federal governments worked hand in hand with the airport commission to finance and build the airport.
For invited guests, there will be free parking and a reception in the terminal following the program.
