Concert Finale a Hit!

Molly's Misfits played their Celtic music to a big crowd last Friday night. People of all ages enjoyed the show on this beautiful evening, and a number of young fiddlers and Irish step dancers accompanied the band. This concert was sponsored by Sean P. Coakley.

Many thanks to all of the local businesses that sponsored the concerts this summer. For a full listing of concerts this summer and their sponsors, visit http://sciwoburn.org/programs/concerts.

Did you happen to catch the rainbow over Woburn Center last Wednesday night? I only had my camera phone with me so couldn't truly do it justice. There was a wild wind and rainstorm, followed by this full rainbow This photo was taken from Library Field following a dramatic Woburn Rotary softball victory. We played right through the storm.
