The Week Ahead: Friday, March 3 through Thursday, March 9, 2017
March 3, 2017
The Week Ahead veers from fact to fantasy and back again and we get set to enjoy a mixed bag of events in this, the first full week of the new month. Whether you are interested in the history of the Scots at home and on Martha’s Vineyard, or the future of our climate stressed planet Earth; or maybe you prefer to party at the Ag hall with like-minded locavore, carnivores or, alternately, want to fulfill your secret dreams of singing your way through a Broadway musical, you can do it all, and more, in the Week Ahead!
