Today was the Farmer’s Market, and again, it was great. I scored fresh raspberries (which are gone, natch), locally raised beef hot dogs (the perfect antidote to a week of veggie dogs), crabcakes from the sassy gentlemen from Rowans, and some multigrain bread. We also enjoyed some banjo and guitar music, and hit up Bootstraps (open late on Mondays during Farmer’s Market Season), and got another amazing vintage pillow case. While there are lots of fruits and veggies at the Beverly Farmer’s Market, there are a lot of other things ..
Wednesday brings the Beverly Gran Prix. If you haven’t been, check it out. Events for kids on the commons, free valet bike parking, and a chance to win a new bike. Don’t drive downtown, hop on your bike and check it out!
Thursday is the next installment of the concerts on the commons…bring a picnic blanket, snacks, and your dancing feet…
Lots of great happenings!!!!
For those doing some house keeping:

2. From the BeverlyMAFreecyle page:
We’re having a Beverly Freecycle Declutter Weekend!
Many of us have items hanging around the house that we no longer use.
Maybe you need to clean out some closets, drawers, the cellar, the attic, the garage or whatever.
Perhaps you got an extra copy of Shakespeare’s Collected Plays from
Aunt Bertha over the holidays or you have way too many garden rakes. :)
Whatever the reason, here’s an invitation – take stock of what you’d
like to clear out, and post your OFFER this coming weekend, May 19 & May 20.
Let’s start our spring cleaning in Freecycle style! We hope to see lots and lots of offers of items posted this weekend! And thanks to everyone
for making BeverlyMA Freecycle such a wonderful group. :)
3. Arthritis Walk! At Lynch Park, Sunday from 10:30-2:00PM, check out the link below for more info:
