That Special Summer Feeling Is Coming Back

Summer is special in Norfolk with a plethora of activities to choose from. Perhaps the events with the greatest hometown feel are the ever-popular Friday Nights on the Green, which resume June 7 and continue through August 30. All programs start at 6:00 p.m. and run until 8 o’clock.

The series kicks off with pizza and games sponsored by the Botelle PTO and the Norfolk Hub. Music that night will be by Lucy Morningstar. The following week the much-anticipated Pet Parade will be held, sponsored by the Norfolk Library. Blossom, a sweet-tempered bulldog who attended the Memorial Day parade Monday in her Tea Party t-shirt, told me she was very much looking forward to seeing all her friends there.

On June 21, there will be a Woodland Celebration hosted by Great Mountain Forest and the Conservation Commission with music by Aimee Van Dyne, followed on June 28 by Blooming Flowers presented by the Norfolk Community Association. Music will be by Mad River Music.

July 5 will bring a Community BBQ, hosted by the Norfolk Hub with music by Kettle Creek. The Norfolk Land Trust will bring Skyhunters in Flight to the green July 12 and another community barbecue hosted by the Hub will close out the month on July 26. This time, Andy Styles will provide the music.

August 2, Weekend in Norfolk returns and there will be an audience-inclusive drum circle on the green. Keep your appetite whetted for August 9 when Aton Forest will treat townsfolk to pizza and ice cream. The following Friday, National Iron Bank and the Lions Club plan to further satisfy gustatory desires with a third community barbecue. With Labor Day on the horizon, the programs close August 30 with an ice cream social sponsored by the Lions Club Ambulance service.

All programs are free. In case of rain, music will be performed at the Norfolk Hub.
