Take Photos of Pretty Things

It’s not too late to enter the Summer Funfest photo contest.

Watch a Movie Under the Stars

Friday is family-friendly movie night at Forge Beach, courtesy of the Westford Recreation Department. The next movie will be shown on Aug. 18 at dusk. The flick is a surprise! According to Recreation Department Office Manager Rozanne Fredkin, licensing issues prevents the department from announcing the name of the movie in advance. Attendees are asked to bring a blanket, chairs, and bug spray. Forge beach is located just off of Pleasant Street. For more information visit WestfordRec.com.
