Any Disability, Any Age – Adaptive Water Skiing @ Point Breeze
Jun 25 @ 8:00 am

Webster Water Ski Collective

It’s Back! The Webster Water Ski Collective is giving kids and adults with disabilities the chance to ski and enjoy a great day on the water.  The theme is “Any Disability, Any Age” – as they will help any age group and any disability get on the water and learn how to water ski using specialized equipment from licensed instructors.

The Leaps of Faith Skiers have been teaching and assisting people with disabilities in both water and snow skiing through events such as this for the past 27 years.

The event will be limited to approximately 24 skiers, with a separate morning and afternoon session. A $30 refundable deposit will be required to hold your spot (the event itself is FREE). The event will take place at Point Breeze Marina, home of the Webster Water Ski Collective.

Carpool Cinema Night @ Southbridge Innovation Center

Dudley Grange Summer Concert Series @ Dudley Grange
Jul 10 @ 7:00 pm

Dudley Grange 163 (Facebook)

Celebrate Summer under the stars this year with the Dudley Grange Summer Concert Series.

The fun kicks off June 5 (rain date June 12) at 7 PM with The Blues Crew, a six-person family band doing “50s and 60s favorites, country oldies, and Blues Brothers tunes.” Before the band plays, learn the ins and outs of raising backyard chickens from Poulin Grain’s Dan Wright at 6.

The following month, July 10 (rain date July 17), the Great Garage Band Reunion brings their self-styled “loud and outrageous” 60s and 70s funk, rock, R&B, and blues (with six horns) to Center Road at 6 PM.

The third show, 7 PM August 7 (rain date August 14), will feature music from Art Sandoli leading into a chance to stargaze and watch the Perseids meteor shower. NASA volunteer educator Dino Tata will lead that astronomical exploration if the clouds cooperate; bring your telescope or good binoculars, and we will have some available for use.

All three shows are outdoors, all ages and free admission on the grass at Dudley Grange’s historic location, 139 Center Road (next to Nichols College). Bring lawn chairs or blankets, snacks and drinks (no alcohol allowed) and intend to have some fun in the warmth of a summer evening.

The series is being sponsored by a grant from the Dudley Cultural Council, the local agency of the Massachusetts Cultural Council. For more information on the Grange itself, go to https://www.facebook.com/DudleyGrange.163/.
