Weekend Calendar: West Concord Porchfest, Colonial Faire Sudbury and Phantom Gourmet Waltham

Anyway, no one cares, so we will move on to some other great things to do this weekend beyond those already covered (WDF Campout, Emerald Necklace

Introducing the 2022 Weston High School Soccer Team: Subtitled Why Weston Soccer Rules Even When It Doesn’t

All right, Weston, this is so going to be a biased post because well, sometimes a spade is just a spade. Both Owlets are on the Weston HS boys soccer team and both are having a great time.

Falling in Love with Weston’s Marian Case Nature Classroom

While ostensibly helping out on the Stewardship Saturday event on Saturday (DIE KNOTWEED!) with a bunch of our hunters, I actually just took my machete and ran away. Which sounds more dangerous than it was–I was off in search of reported evil knotweed at the Marian Case Nature Classroom, a place near and dear to my heart. If you haven’t
