LAKEVILLE ARTS & MUSIC FESTIVAL PLANNING MEETING
The ninth annual Arts & Music Festival will be held this year on Saturday, October 5 between 10 AM and 4 PM. What a great way to celebrate the cultural life of our town and the region, as well as an effective way to share information with the rest of the community.
The Organizing Committee will always welcome new participants to the planning process. Please consider joining us one or two meetings. The next meeting will be held Thursday, June 13th at 7:00 PM in the Lakeville Town Offices, 346 Bedford Street, Lakeville.
Anyone with questions can contact the committee at LakevilleFestival@hotmail.com.
During the months of May through October, Lakeville’s Litter Lifters will be picking up litter the same Saturdays as Middleborough’s Mess Movers. Together, yet separately we plan to clean up the two neighboring towns. There will be two contests between the towns. Details to follow in early May.
Be sure to mark your calendars to meet at 9 a.m. at the Old Town Hall at the corners of Bedford and Precinct Streets on the following Saturdays: May 18, June 15, July 20, August 17, September 21, and October 19.
However, if you can’t join us on any of the above dates after our April Earth Day Clean-Up yet you would like to be a part of the effort, we urge you to work on your own, perhaps with a friend or neighbor. We would like to hear from anyone who has chosen to do go out on their own, just to know we are not out there working alone and neither are YOU! Then email us about your experience at LakevilleLitter-Lifters@hotmail.com
Join us to help clean up Lakeville and meet some new friends on the Saturday of your choice!!!!
