Summer Concert Series, 2019
Summertime pleasures are back including the 4th season of the free outdoor concert series, 'Music on Meetinghouse Green.' Every Friday evening in July and August we host a fine musical group with delicious food available from local vendors and invite a North Shore non-profit to be the beneficiary of your free-will offerings. The concerts run from 6 to 8:30pm using the front steps of the Meetinghouse as a stage. In inclement weather we use the Social Hall downstairs and never cancel. Bring lawn chairs, blankets and you favorite libation to enjoy these great events on the Green, located at the corner of Middle and Church Streets.
Thanks to a great Events Committee, chaired by Sandy Ronan, we have a terrific season ahead!

A few evenings last year we had over 200 people on the Green and raised about $1,500 for our partner non-profits. This year we would like to reach 250 in the audience and up the ante! So please spread the good word far and wide. Let's start the season with a record turnout on July 5th in support of Pathways for Children. Happy days are here again!!!
