Free Family Concert June 2, 2019

Ben Rudnick & Friends play the hippest family music around. With countless awards to their credit, including FIVE Parent’s Choice awards, their adventurous, high-energy blend of happy, upbeat acoustic music is guaranteed to entertain the entire family.

With tremendous support from the Arlington Cultural Council (ACC), the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), The Friends of Menotomy Rocks Park and the Town of Arlington Recreation Dept., the band will convene for a free show in one of the most beautiful spots in all of Arlington, Menotomy Rocks Park.

This is truly spectacular location and it is sure to be a special evening of family fun. The concert will take place in the big field close to Hills Pond.

VOLUNTEER WORK DAY

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22nd

10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon

We hope you all had the opportunity to meet the Goatscaping crew, our summer park work volunteers.

We’ll be following up on the work our four “volunteers” accomplished by cutting back the woody brush that they didn’t tackle.

The two work areas will be the rear perimeter of the back field and the perimeter of Centennial Grove nearest the Churchill Ave. entrance.

The weather is predicted to be in the 50’s & 60’s. Please wear work gloves, long pants — and sturdy shoes/rubber boots. Loppers, saws and pruning shears would be helpful, if you have them.
