Updated (10/19/20 3:25 pm): I forgot to include the Lacrosse clinic on Sunday. And Chestnut Hill Farm got back to me about Saturday’s “Brew Moon Hike”. The Trustees of Reservations confirmed there is no alcohol license for the event. It is now revamped as a “Guided Evening Hike” without the brews. Plus, I noticed that I misspelled the middle school name in the headline!
