The Bridgewater Council on Aging invites all Bridgewater Seniors and all others to join us on Tuesday, September 12th, at 1 p.m. for a great time with Tommy Rull and his Musical Journey Through The Years.

Tommy has had great success all throughout the Northeast doing many shows for so many audiences. The songs he sings will take us back through the years of our lives. This is an event that you should not miss. We hope to see a lot of people on this day.

Tommy’s songs include all the hit songs that we always heard on the air waves, performed by entertainers that we’ve all come to know as giants in the entertainment industry. Hear the great songs of Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow, Roy Orbison, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, Michael BublĂ©, Paul Anka, Elvis Presley, Frankie Avalon, Engelbert Humperdinck, The Four Tops, Paul McCartney, James Taylor, Lionel Richie, Kenny Rogers, Neil Sedaka, Roger Whittaker—the list goes on and on.

Our thanks to the Bridgewater Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Cultural Council for funding Tommy’s Show. We hope to see you there!

Lunch to be served at 12:00. For further information and to sign up, please call the Senior Center at 508-697-0929.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Bridgewater Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Wrap It Up! Wrap, Scarf and Sarong Workshop


Wrap It Up!  Wrap, Scarf and Sarong Workshop with Rhonda Fazio from Dyer Maker Studio at the Bridgewater Public Library on Tuesday, August 8 th @ 6:30 pm.
Join artist Rhonda Fazio from Dyer Maker Studio (www.dyermakerstudio.com) as she demonstrates the art of wrapping a scarf to suit your personal style. You'll learn many different ways to wear wraps and scarves you already own. It's as fun as playing “dress up” as a kid. Bring a scarf, wrap, or sarong you want more ideas for, and Rhonda will help you brainstorm how best to wear it!
Ms. Fazio just completed the Entrepreneurship for All South Coast Business Accelerator program and is now marketing her "Dyeing to Wear It: Creating Community through Color" workshops. She has received a number of grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and works with secondary school aged children in the classroom and in her studio located at the Narrows Center for the Arts.
The event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Bridgewater Public Library, is free and open to the public.
