Fotos del Festival Dominicano

How’s my Spanish? Not very good. I had to rely on Google Translate just for the title. But if I do that often enough, perhaps I’ll learn some along the away. Here’s a gallery of photos from the portions of the annual Dominican Festival I was able to attend, including the parade, ceremonies at Fraser…

Central Square Just Got a Little More Colorful

RAW’s Good 2 Go Crew, in cooperation with the City of Lynn and Ward 5 Councilor Brendan Crighton, gave some of Central Square’s drab utility boxes a make-over on Saturday. There was a large water jug, and free freeze pops to keep participants cool. Live entertainment was provided by Lynn musicians Christopher Keating, Dave Simmons,…

Signs of Lynn – Layers of Fluff

Billboard on top of the Durkee Mower plant on Brookline Street, Lynn. Thank you to Darlene (Bird) Jules for this submission from her trip to Lynn back in January, 2010! Darlene says she lived all around Lynn before leaving the state in the 1980’s, but still checks in on us now and again, and it’s…

Gardening! “Rich Randall and the Blue Crew from Blue Cross, Blue Shield built two raised-bed gardens at Mary & Grace Ishkanian’s…

Summer Photo Series – Signs of Lynn
