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.

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.
