Here are highlights of performances, celebrations and other events around town this weekend. I also included three out-of-town events that have links to our community.

The more than dozen events include tonight’s fundraiser for the St. Mark’s youth mission, early Valentine’s Day celebrations, and four performances of Neary students’ big annual musical (on the Trottier stage).
