The Brochure Program provides businesses with space for their takeaway materials at busy welcome centers in the year-round Hyannis Youth & Community Center and at the seasonal Bismore Park Welcome Center located at Hyannis Harbor.

The Welcome Center at Bismore Park at Hyannis Harbor is open seasonally and staffed daily from Memorial Day through Labor Day by helpful Gateway Greeters who answer questions and assist visitors with parking. Brochures are displayed where visitors can easily access them during the hours of operation. Greeters will often provide visitors with “goody bags” containing personalized suggestions for activities and events, creating a positive first impression that often results in return visits!
