August 12:

Americana Sing Along Concert    

4 – 5:30 p.m.  

204 River Street, West Bridgewater, MA.

This will be the climactic end of our summer events. Bring your lawn chairs, your bug spray, your musical instruments (if you choose), and your singing voice.
Musicians, Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards, and radio host, Nick Noble, from WICN 90.5 FM, will lead us in singing songs from the American song book. Pratt’s Landing, a recent acquisition by the Town of West Bridgewater, is a beautiful river front setting.

This concert is sponsored by the Friends of the Library with help from the Old Bridgewater Historical Society, the Forestry Department, and the West Bridgewater Open Space Committee.
