A speaking program will begin at 11 a.m. Mark Ells, Assistant Town Manager of Barnstable, Jessica Sylver, CEO of the Hyannis Chamber of Commerce, Kimberly Denis, Executive Director of the Consumers Assistance Council on the Cape, Bernedette Lundbohm, Postal Inspector, and Mandi Rinaldi, Sales Manager of Doc Shredding Corp, will be in attendance to further consumer education about proper document disposal practices.
