Winter Storm updates for Jan 19-20, 2019

Feeling fortunate to have made it this far into winter without needing to worry about snow and event cancellations, but this weekend has become the start for the season!  Updates will be posted here as decisions are made…

Last update: 1/19/19, 5:40pm

Saturday 1/19:  The Winter Farmers Market is definitely *ON*.  All other Saturday events are running as planned.

Sunday 1/20: I-Opener, More to Love Yoga, and Zumba with Erika are cancelled.   Decisions on the afternoon events will be made Sunday morning.

Market season kicks off today!

The much-loved season of holiday markets kicks off today (Saturday Nov 24)!  Herbstalk Wintergreen is here 11 am – 5 pm, featuring herbal- and plant-based products.

Tomorrow (Sunday Nov 25) and again on Dec 9, Somerville Local First brings local artists, crafters, and small businesses together for a holiday market.  10 am – 4 pm.

Saturday Dec 1 is the first Somerville Winter Farmers Market!  Every Saturday from December to mid-April, 9:30am – 2 pm.  Featuring produce, meats, fish, cheese, bakery, sweets, snacks, and more!

And the Somerville Flea brings their unique mix of vintage and repurposed / upcycled items for two pre-holiday shopping dates: Sunday Dec 2 and Sunday Dec 16, 10 am – 5 pm.

All of these markets are free to visit; just pay for whatever tempts its way into your bag!

 

Letters of Support, we need YOU!

We’re applying for Community Preservation Act (CPA) funding from the City of Somerville for “The Somerville Armory Window Project” – a project to repair the 22 existing large half-moon windows around the Performance Hall, and install exterior storm windows.  The storm windows will protect the existing windows, increase energy efficiency, and help reduce sound transmitted to the outside during shows (soundproofing) – making life better for performers, audiences, and neighbors.

The Community Preservation Committee is accepting public comment until Oct 31 (email to kstelljes@somervillema.gov).  Could you write us a support letter?  Letters from anyone with a connection to the Armory are welcome, but letters from Somerville residents are particularly important.  Can you write a letter of support today?

Thank you for your support!
