Things To Know the Week of August 8: Roadwork, Concerts, Committee Meetings

The forecast at press time shows just a 20% chance of precipitation on Thursday, so hopefully the Community Market can go on, along with several outside concerts. 

The Tewksbury Public Library has a variety of programs planned for adults, teens and kids; see a full lineup here. Weather permitting, there are also two opportunities to hear some live music.

On Monday, Aug. 9 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. the library’s ongoing outdoor concert series presents The Sinatra & More Show: A Frank Sinatra Tribute, featuring music by Ol’ Blue Eyes and contemporaries including Dean Martin and Bobby Darin.

Then, On Wed., Aug. 11 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m., The American WHO recreates hits from Daltrey, Townsend, Moon and Entwistle.

Both concerts will take place on the library’s back lawn. Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs. In case of inclement weather, the events will be rescheduled for August. 

In case the weather doesn’t cooperate, there are two open meetings that interested residents may attend.

The Conservation Commission meets Wednesday, Aug. 11 at 7 p.m. at Town Hall, with a number of virtual participation options. After some standard business affecting power transmission lines as well as River Rd., Regina S. Drive, Munro Circle, Whipple Rd. and Wells Drive, the committee will hold an open space discussion. Residents may watch the proceedings online on Tewksbury TV. 

The Conservation Commission is responsible for protecting and managing Tewksbury’s conservation land and open space and ensuring applicable laws are followed.

The Elementary School Building Committee meets on Thursday, Aug. 12, at Town Hall. There is no virtual participation or viewing option. The Committee will review a number of change orders and milestones, pay some bills and discuss the name of the new school, which is expected to open in January 2023. While the committee may, or may not, recommend a name for the new building, the final decision rests with the School Committee. 

Not familiar with the new school project? Residents can find background, maps, photos, progress reports and links to minutes and agendas on the ESBC website.

The Tewksbury Community Market returns — if Mother Nature cooperates — on Thursday on the Library grounds. This week’s lineup includes the Friends of the Tewksbury Library selling community cookbooks and other items as well as local farms and crafters. Food truck options are Empanada Dada and Thwaites Market, which offers handheld meat pies. For dessert check out Kona Ice and the Whoopie Wagon.

Mass. DOT will recommence roadwork at the intersection of Rt. 38 and South St., so residents are advised to avoid the area if possible. The DOT says the project is 74% complete, but there is a 100% chance of lengthy backups at the intersection.

Finally, on Friday, Aug. 13, the popular Mo Bounce R&B and funk band out of Somerville returns to TJ Callahan’s Pub, while the TKO Trio plays Bobby & Jack’s beginning at 6:30.
