lemonade... good news from newport  

march 2016

Welcome March...

Hooray! This month we'll enjoy longer days after the clocks spring forward on 3/13 and the Vernal Equinox passes on 3/20. But it's the Newport St. Patrick's Day Parade, on Saturday, 3/12, that really signals the start of the spring season for Newporters.

Although it is not billed as such, I notice that the Narrows Center is hosting a number of Jerry Garcia's musical collaborators this month-- nice!

Enjoy this time of transition...
 and if you please
