Hello Everyone! I just listened to today’s weather report and it’s going to be another wonderful day for an outdoor event. So if you’re looking for something fun to do today, come on over to Neary School, have dinner with us and enjoy some great live music. Tonight, along with our regular menu, we will also be offering grilled chicken wraps provided by Chick-fil-A. All menu items are priced under $3.50 and admission is free, making this an affordable and family friendly event!
Hope to see you there,
Friends of The Southborough Youth Commission
