"Daffodil Days" in Brewster began in 1986, the year I moved to the Cape with my two sons. This idea began with Faith Dibble, a long time Brewster resident, and at its inception was aimed at drawing tourists to Brewster. She and her husband Bob owned the Brewster Store at that time. Faith gained the support of other residents and together they planted thousands of daffodils along historic Route 6A. Two years later Daffodil Days became Brewster In Bloom, a two day festival complete with antique show, craft fair, and ending with a parade through town. It is always held the first weekend in May. Faith Dibble's memorial service was this evening, May 1, 2010.
On May 1, 1993, Tommy and I were married during the Daffodil Festival in Brewster on Tubman Road at the Old Glory Homestead. That day was the beginning of 17 (so far) happy years. Today began dark and cloudy just as it did 17 years ago; then the sun broke through just as it did on my wedding day in time for our ceremony to be held outside. It is a day of celebration for us and today especially for Faith.
