Welcome to the heart of summer!
Sunshine. Watermelon. Heat waves. The neighbor’s seemingly endless supply of cheap New Hampshire fireworks.
We’re now in the warm, sunblock-soaked glide towards Labor Day.
And what better way to celebrate than with a tall, frosty glass of Abington 310 Celebration Lager. The brewmasters at 10th District formally unveiled their latest concoction last week, complete with an Abington-themed label. The limited-edition lager is available by the pint in the taproom, or in 4-packs.
SUMMER CONCERT SERIES STARTS SUNDAY

The night’s featured performers will be the Abington Community Band, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. The Island Grove Chorus are the special guests. The show starts at 6 p.m. The full concert series lineup is available here.
CASEY NAMED INTERIM AHS ASST PRINCIPAL; CLEMENTS, FEDOROWICZ DEPARTS
Kate Casey has been named interim Abington High School assistant principal for the 2022-2023 school year. She replaces Jessee Clements, who has left for an administrative role in Bourne. Casey currently serves as the director of wellness programs for the school department, as well as the varsity girls soccer coach. Athletic Director Peter Serino said she will remain behind the bench for the upcoming fall season.
“As an educator, advisor and coach, Ms. Casey has a proven successful record of establishing an inclusive culture, creating and vetting enrichment opportunities for student and staff development, establishing and maintaining relationships with students, staff, families and key stakeholders in the community and advances the social, emotional, physical and educational opportunities for the students of the Abington Public Schools,” Superintendent Peter Schafer wrote in an email to families.
Casey earned her Bachelor of Science degree in exercise and sports sciences from Colby-Sawyer College and a Master’s degree in education from Fitchburg State University. She is a past associate athletic director, has served on the high school’s school council, and is an intramural advisor and unified sports advisor.
Meanwhile Dr. Shari Fedorowicz, the department’s director of curriculum, instruction and assessment, is departing to become assistant superintendent of teaching and learning at the Old Rochester Regional School District. She had been with Abington schools since 2013.
