Sunday, June 21: Quiet Hours music with Dwayne Haggins Band

Our thanks to the hosts!

Announcing a little Waterfront Musical Pandemic Relief this Sunday June 21, during Quiet Time, 2-6 p.m. (ish) at Conley Cove (on James Basin), aka near the dam

We’re not sure yet if we’ll have a Lighting of the Lake music boat, so Jen and I decided that we needed to get our Dwayne Haggins Band FIX!

If you haven’t seen/heard them yet you NEED to. One of the best, newest, localist bands you shall ever listen to!

To respect social distancing, we are asking that people congregate either in the water or on the dam.

So come by pontoon, cuddy, bowrider, ski boat, scale sized Titanic, canoe, kayak, SUP, raft, bike or sneakers, but 109 Barton Road will only be accommodating about 10 people (including the band).

Hope to fill the basin with great music and great neighbors!!

Bill & Jen

Kayak missing

This green and white kayak was found drifting in the north end of the first basin Friday night and was left at the town beach. However, it was then moved from the town beach by someone other than the owner. It belongs at 271 Sudbury Road. If seen, please call 978-771-9045.
