Sudbury held its annual July 4th celebration in typical all-American style. The parade was led by fire and police from near and faraway towns. There were bands, including the always entertaining Liberty Jazz Band, minutemen, political activists, and antique cars. As always, there was lots of candy to be had, thrown from floats. This year, my children were smart enough to bring little bags with them.
The towns of Bolton, Lancaster and Stow celebrated the graduation of their high school seniors at Nashoba Regional High School today on June 7, 2009. This "best of" slideshow chronicles the entire event. If you are searching for more images, please visit the full NRHS 2009 Graduation Gallery.
Every year at this time, just a few short weeks before summer break, our elementary school's PTO hosts the Pompo/Center School Picnic. It's always a wonderful event and, for the kids, it's pretty much the social event of the year. Practically everyone shows up. There's plenty to eat, lots of field games, and fire and police activities. The most popular event, of course, is the dunking booth, where the kids get back at their favorite, or not so favorite, teachers. The parents sit around and commiserate about all the time they'll have with their kids in a short while, wondering how they will fill the long summer days.
