WEEK AHEAD: An update on Tri-Town/Southfield/ Union Point; MS Drama Club performance; Green Wave sports sked; meeting sked

SOUTHFIELD PROJECT UPDATE

While redevelopment at the former Fort Deven’s military base marches forward, the redevelopment of the former South Weymouth Naval Air Station remains stuck in the mud. More than two years after the Southfield Redevelopment Authority board chose Brookfield as the new master developer (and at least the 4th since the base closed), no progress of any substance has happened. Selectmen tonight will receive an update from the town’s representative to the property’s governing board, Kevin Donovan. It also appears this will be Donovan’s last appearance before Selectmen in this capacity as he is stepping down from the role. One other item on the Selectmen’s agenda tonight is to appoint Donovan’s replacement. So far only Roger Woods, a former selectman and owner of Old Town Real Estate, has indicated interest.in the position.

MIDDLE SCHOOL DRAMA CLUB PRODUCTION FRIDAY AND SATURDAY

The Abington Middle School Drama Club will be presenting their production “We’re All Made of Stars” this upcoming Friday, May 13, at 7 p.m., and Saturday, May 14, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 dollars at the door.

According to music teacher Tom Leonelli, the show is inspired by the students themselves, taking the best performing talents of Abington Middle School students and putting them front and center on the stage. 

SPRING ARTS FESTIVAL MAY 18

Abington High School will host a “Celebrate the Arts Festival” on Wednesday, May 18, from 3:30 – 7 p.m. The event will feature both a student art show as well as concert choir and band performance.

The art show will feature work from all students in grades 9-12 who participated in an art class this year. The AHS Concert Choir and Concert Band will present their annual Spring Concert starting at 7 p.m., in the Middle/High School auditorium. There is no admission fee and the events are open to the public. 

AMS GRADE 8 SEMI-FORMAL TICKETS ON SALE NEXT WEEK

The Grade 8 Northern Lights Semi-Formal will be held on Friday, June 10 at Reilly Field. Only current AMS grade 8 students are allowed to attend. Tickets will be sold during lunches on Tuesday, May 10 and Wednesday, May 11, and cost $10 each.
