The OCDC established the Barbara Gray Legacy Award in 2015 to be given annually to honor one or more “Citizen Leaders Who Move Our Communities Forward,” echoing the spirit of former State Representative Barbara Gray (D-Framingham) who "retired" to Wellfleet in 1996 after 24 years in the House.

ABOUT DAVE SCHROPFER - Dave Schropfer: Eastham activist extraordinaire and, like Barbara Gray, a citizen leader who"retired" to the Outer Cape – only to take on a huge amount of work. Dave was instrumental in bringing electronic voting to Eastham Town Meeting. His activism helped make Eastham #1 in the State in Early Voting turnout in 2016 Presidential election (50% of voters voted early).
