Friday, August 19, 2016 ….As is true every week, there were new shoppers at the market. But it was noticeable how many conversations could be observed among people who have gotten to know one another over the course of the summer.
Shopping for quality items may have been the top priority, but familiar faces and clusters of chatting people could be seen throughout.
Our volunteers were no exception. They also engaged in one another’s company!
Welcomed by CLT’s Linda Boback, Nick Smith’s mellow music enhanced the all round congenial tone.
We were fortunate to be joined by two local groups ENTHUSIASTICALLY promoting discussion of their missions. The proposed bike path connecting Charlestown and Westerly….
….and the Rathskeller sponsored Twin Peaks duo, Patty and Nancy, advocating for breast cancer awareness.
Nancy and Patty are both breast cancer survivors and invited all interested participants to join them for the annual Twin Peaks Preservation Stroll on Oct. 2nd at 10 AM stepping out from the Rathskeller in Charlestown.
When you come to the next market, consider having your picture taken in our “Charlestown Gothic” setting….
As for this coming week’s special features? They include representatives from the AMC (Appalachian Mountain Club), Kettle Pond Visitors Center – the US Fish and Wildlife Service Headquarters and the RI National Wildlife Refuge Complex right here in Charlestown, and a second visit of the season from the Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed Association. Music will be offered by Glorybound with Dan LaPointe.
