Concert this Sunday

Hi. I would like to have a picnic and enjoy the concert this Sunday at 7 at the Pinebank Promontory (Boston Landmarks Orchestra). Would anyone like to come with me? I live right in JP and am hoping to start getting to know my neighbors! 

 

Cheers,

Good times and bad times can…
