Oct. 28, 2017 – Tricky Britches closes down Wayside’s 2017 concert series at 7 pm. Tix $10. Raised in Maine, cured on street corners and next to woodstoves, string band Tricky Britches is a unique culmination of country, contra-dance, bluegrass, and rock. Tricky Britches formed in 2009, when four friends in Portland, Maine, took their fiddle tunes and country songs on the road across the US. Since then they have recorded two albums of original material: Hard Fought Day and Good Company. They have played on stages big and small across the US, Hawaii and Europe, but at the end of the day, their favorite show is still on a crowded street corner at midnight. With Seth Doyle on mandolin, guitar, harmonica, vocals; Tyler Lienhardt on fiddle, vocals; Jed Bresette on bass, guitar, vocals and Richard Bicknell on banjo, vocals.
No reservations. Doors open 6:30 pm. Homemade goodies and pretty good coffee sold at intermission. Door prize, 50/50. FMI 277-3733, 270-1166 or Facebook Wayside Grange and Theatre.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!
The community garden project to grow food for area seniors is entering its fourth season, on the Sherburne Farm in Dexter (about 2 miles out of town on the Ripley Road, Rt 23), and needs help with all the myriad gardening work there.
Please help John (924-5232), who is a volunteer himself, by showing up for the group work hours on Saturday mornings 9-11 or Wednesday afternoons or WHENEVER YOU WANT and plant, hoe, weed, mulch, harvest, bag, or deliver as part of the community crew of the “Shared Earthly Blessings” project.
John is arranging a Chores chalkboard at the Garden to show what jobs need doing at the moment, in order to allow people to lend a hand whenever they might have a free moment or two, not just on the group work hours.
