Several members from both the Sturbridge Rotary and the Sturbridge Lions Clubs spent time recently cleaning all the antique lamps that light the Sturbridge Common. Both Clubs had contributed to purchase the lamps when the bandstand was built as well as contributing to the construction of the bandstand. The cleanup is in preparation to both Clubs jointly funding the July 20 Concert on the Common featuring Dan Gabel and the Abletones.
Those who helped from the Lions were Laurie LaFleche, PDG Terry Grant, Randy Peppard, Neil Cooper and Guy Martel.
Those who helped from Rotary were PDG Klaus Hachfeld, President Otto Prohaska, Austin Jenkins, Peter Zeh and Scott Peckins.
Thanks everyone for bringing ladders and cleaning supplies to get this job done and done so quickly. Two service clubs working together for the good of our community!
