Week of February 15th-19th, 2016

New this week: Vienna Carroll & Keith Johnston Black Roots Folk Music

We saw some record breaking cold this Valentine's weekend in Turner's Falls, but the winter rolls on. This Saturday, February 22nd, there will be a free community workshop on race in the Brick House from 1-4pm. Turners Falls River culture describes it as "a unique opportunity for individuals to change through self-reflection and interpersonal dialogue in a safe, facilitated environment." The workshop will be led by Don Wright of the National SEED Project. To Register: 413-835-1390 or riverculture@gmail.com.

And don't forget to tune into Montague Community TV! There will not be a Montague selectboard meeting this week, but you can watch the Finance committee meeting live at 6pm on Wednesday--this meeting will include a review of Fiscal Year 2017 requests and a review of revenue estimates. Plus, check out the following videos now available for download & streaming:
