The CCA has a long and storied history in the Town of Barnstable. The CCA was founded and held its first meeting 70 years ago on January 17, 1953. The cover page of the original Articles of Incorporation is shown HERE. Some of our long-time members will recognize many of the names of the founders. An interesting historical note included at the bottom of the document was that at the time the CCA was founded, there were no street numbers in the Village of Centerville – my, have times changed!
At the time of its founding, the purpose of the CCA was the advancement of civic development, community spirit and community activities in the Village of Centerville, in the Town of Barnstable; but these purposes shall not include the right to apply for a license to sell alcoholic beverages.
In 2007, the CCA’s Articles of Incorporation were replaced to make it a non-profit organization and the legal name was changed to the Civic Association of Centerville, Inc. The purpose and mission statements for the CCA were changed to what you see above.
