The Happening This Weekend In Beacon Email Is Out! (8/28/16)


For your scheduling pleasure, here is a quick summary of places and goings on you may want to participate in over the weekend. These are weekend dates pulled from some of our 10 Things To Do In Beacon Guides, so be sure to check them during the week.

P.S.: We made it onto the air! Radio Woodstock was broadcasting live from Beacon on their nine-city Radio Tour, devoting their day to being "Radio Beacon." So many groups got to go on the air and talk about their projects and upcoming events. A Little Beacon Blog's publisher Katie talked to MK about the rich Things To Do In Beacon Guides, our upcoming original article series like  "Postcards from Beacon," and our new stickers.

Stickers! If you are a business with a storefront, you are most likely featured in one of these Guides. Stop by our new office to pick up an "As Featured In!" sticker! It's better than any Yelp sticker.

Over 35 participants are making hats in the theme of Beacon's Past or Present. Jeffrey returned to his studio behind his gallery TERRESON: BEACON to start visualizing his concept. All hats will be auctioned off at a live auction at the Howland Cultural Center in November. Will you be throwing your hat into the auctioning ring to make a bid?
