Wreath and Holiday Arrangement Workshop

Come and make a wreath or arrangement for the holiday season! Greens and wreath forms will be provided, but participants may wish to bring their own clippers, embellishments, or decorative containers.

We ask that participants do not take extra greens home with them. We want to make sure that we have supplies for as many participants as possible at the workshop.

BJ Whitehouse *Rain Location*

The Shanteyman presents a program of music, poetry and stories of the sea. The program is geared toward elementary and middle school-aged children and is highly participatory. Kids will play in a 'fufu' band, an improvisational group of players on pots and pans! Or, they will use a light block-and-tackle in a fun tug-of-war to experience the mechanical advantage of simple machines. The music of the sea is as wide as the Atlantic and as deep as the ocean. Aside from shanties, sailors sang forebitters, which were ballads or popular songs of the day.

Westerly Band Evening Concert

Come hear the Westerly Band as we play a wide variety of music throughout the ages - music from Civil War times all the way through The Beach Boys. A special feature will be Leroy Anderson’s “A Trumpeter’s Lullaby,“ played by Austin Thorp. Austin is a 4th generation musician of the Westerly Band.

Wednesday, August 8th at 6:30 pm in the Bandstand.
