Snow or not, hopefully everyone is planning to head out around town for the many Winterfest activities, from Feb 3-5. Check out the Winterfest Website for a Schedule of Events and also an Events Map to see where in town you'd like to be.
Winterfest kicks off Friday night at 7:00 PM with a Community Social at the Library. This is also the kickoff for the Library's One Book Chelmsford program - this year we're not only doing more than one book, we're doing more than one author! Check out our One Book Chelmsford page for more details and event dates.
There will be lots of great food, fun, and people throughout the town for the entire weekend of Winterfest, so be sure to go out and have a wonderful time. You can also brush up on your "history of Winterfest" knowledge on the website - there's a video of some of the original founder Peggy Dunn talking with some of the other current coordinators and Town Manager Paul Cohen.
Be sure to take part to make this year another great success!Posted in Events, One Book | No Comments »
