Updated (11/22/23 9:24 am): I had accidentally listed Goat rambles at Chestnut Hill Farm as continuing through this upcoming weekend. But last weekend was their last weekend for the season. I also accidentally included weekly Friday programs at the Senior Center and the Library – which would be hard to take place since I did post that both facilities will be closed!
