The Sturbridge Lions Club and the Sturbridge Rotary Club have joined forces to sponsor an event being held on Sturbridge Common on Thursday, July 20th from 6-8 PM. The event, FREE to the public, is a concert by Dan Gabel and The Abletones, an 18-piece Big Band specializing in swing music of the 1930s and 40s.
This is not the first time that Sturbridge Lions and Sturbridge Rotary have partnered for the benefit of the greater Sturbridge community. Together, the two Clubs contributed to the construction of the bandstand and lanterns on the Sturbridge Common, the very site where The Abletones will be performing. Recently, the two Clubs cleaned and repaired the antique style lanterns which light the Common.
We invite you to come and enjoy the concert – rain or shine. There will be raffle tickets available for purchase which includes a night’s stay for two people at the Publick House including dinner and breakfast. Bring the whole family, bring friends, bring neighbors and don’t forget your lawn chairs. If your feet start tapping, get up and dance!
