Looking for an excuse to get out of the house this Saturday night? Well, here are a couple of possibilities for you, both offering a great evening of entertainment and both supporting good causes.

Highfields Center for Composting is hosting their Second Annual Compost Cabaret & Silent Auction. This “evening of steaming hot entertainment for the whole family” will take place at the Cabot Town Hall this Saturday, February 26, from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. A suggested donation of $10 will go to support Highfields’ work Closing the Loop–an outreach that helps communities establish sustainable composting programs.

In Maple Corners, you can get down to the sounds of the Fresh Greenes, a trio of musicians hailing from Woodbury who play an original blend of jazz, folk, and rock infused music. This Saturday, from 7:30 p.m. – 10 p.m., you’ll find them at the Maple Corners Community Center playing a benefit concert for the 4 month old daughter of Liz Knapp and John Dubois who has been diagnosed with acute infant lukemia. The suggested donation is $10, but every little bit helps.

The Hardwick area seems like a pretty quiet place, but there are often a lot of things going on! Typically, you can peruse the flyers on bulletin boards around town to find out about events and classes, but you can also keep tabs on what’s happening in our area through some online resources. Just recently, a Front Porch Forum was created for the Hardwick/Walden community — click on the link to sign up for email updates from the forum and to be able to add your own news and events for the area. The forum is new and just beginning to grow, but the more people who sign up, the more active and useful it can become.

You can also find and post events on the Hardwick Area Chamber of Commerce calendar, or sign up to receive calendar updates by email.
