Sorry, Hawk, Easter is Over!

It must be spring because the Schraffts left work/school yesterday and hit Richardson’s Dairy.

The boys got gift cards in their Easter baskets and, since it was a whopping 50ish degrees after school, they naturally wanted to go get the first official ice cream of the season.  With the Red Sox game on the radio (they won 8-0, by the way) and the windows down for a stretch of the ride…off we went….because, really, how do you say “no” to that?

A couple of years ago we were fortunate enough to see a calf being born this time of year.  It was pretty awesome for the boys to see.  Yesterday’s wildlife adventure on the farm was led by a hawk…who apparently thought that Easter was not over because he was clearly still out on an egg hunt.

Check your calendar, Hawk.  Easter is over….and, you can sit there looking all threatening all afternoon, but those birds aren’t going to give up their eggs.

Meeting for Proposed Sculpture by David Black is Cancelled

unnamedSculpture meeting

Location of proposed David Black
sculpture to wait on arts policy

Dear Friends:

   The meeting that was to have been held this Saturday, April 11, on the location of the proposed sculpture by renowned artist David Black at Solomon Jacobs Park has been cancelled.

The mayor has indicated she wants to have a full discussion of a City arts policy before making a decision on how to proceed with the acceptance and installation of David’s generous gift.

A city-wide forum to begin the process of developing the arts policy will be held in May. I encourage you to attend that meeting and be heard on the matter. I will provide further details as they are available. For now, however, the project is on hold.

Thank you all for your attention to this matter and your care for our city.
