Joe Q Veteran Coffee Break

Falmouth, Massachusetts
More than meeting for coffee!

Improving quality of life for those who served by providing the support and information today’s Veterans and their families need.

Falmouth Rotary Golf Tournament

Thank you to Participants and Sponsors for a Successful 1st Annual Golf Tournament

Over 120 golfers enjoyed a wonderful day on the links of Pocasset Country Club on Flag Day despite a rain delay of passing showers. The first ever golf tournament was co-sponsored by the Rotary Club of Falmouth and Joe Q Veteran Coffee Break. Participants were treated to a special first time event of a flyover by the US Coast Guard Rescue Helicopter followed by a rousing rendition of the national anthem. Golfers also had the opportunity to honor the Veterans in their lives by purchasing honor flags which displayed their name, rank, branch of service and photo. These flags were placed on the tee boxes through out the course. The turnout of golfers and sponsors exceeded the first year expectations! A special thank you to major sponsors Martha's Vineyard Bank, KEESolutions/Lynch JV, Petrocelli Public Insurance Adjusters, Wareham Ford and Gosnold for sponsoring the event! The golfers included individuals from the Upper Cape and Eastern Massachusetts. A heartfelt thank you goes out to each and every individual who played in the tournament It was a wonderful way for two organizations to pool volunteers and resources to honor veterans, and raise funds to support veterans and their families and the projects of the Rotary Club of Falmouth. It was also a special day for Brian Madden who had a hole-in-one on the sixth hole. Plans are underway to hold the tournament in 2022 on the same date and location. The golf tournament is an enjoyable way to kick off the summer season while supporting community Veteran outreach programs and people. Stay tuned for 2022.

About Us
Joe Q Veteran Coffee Break, Inc. is an all-inclusive, nonprofit Veteran organization in Falmouth, Massachusetts.  A 501(c)3 registered with the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, we represent all branches of the military and members of the community with a connection to service in the military.  Conceived in 2016 and legally established as a nonprofit in May of 2020, Joe Q Veteran Coffee Break is working to improve quality of life for those that served by providing the support and information today’s Veterans and their families need.  

Last year, Joe Q Veteran Coffee Break worked on building its volunteer corps, codifying foundational documents, and establishing priorities and processes for the development of Veteran programs. At the November 2019 Town Meeting, the group launched the initiative to repurpose the former senior center facility at 300 Dillingham Ave. in Falmouth as a community Veterans center. This effort aims to provide a meeting place and hub for Veterans and family members in the Falmouth area to receive information, advice and coordinated services—and enjoy a cup of coffee together.

About Joe "Q" Quintiliani


About Joe "Q" Quintiliani
The late Joe Quintiliani (“Joe Q” to his friends) was a long-time Falmouth resident who had a distinguished career in the United States Coast Guard as a deep-sea diver, and a second career as a firefighter on Cape Cod.  In recognition of his selfless service to the Veteran community, the Joe Q Veteran Coffee Break was named in his honor.

The Falmouth area Veteran coffee break concept was developed in June of 2016 by Joe and his friends who recognized the need to build fellowship among area Veterans and to provide them with vital information and guidance about programs and services available to Veterans.

Joe Quintiliani had a vision to improve quality of life for those who served by providing the support and information today’s Veterans and their families need. Joe Q Veteran Coffee Break has set a course to make Joe Q’s vision a reality for Falmouth-area Veterans and their families for many years to come.
