Wilmington Good Guys

The Fourth of July has traditionally been the biggest event in town each year and this year, with the event moving back to the Town Common area, it's good to see it getting tied to one of the best traditions in town: the Annual Good Guy Award.

Fourth of July Committee Chairman Scott Garrant was honored at the event earlier this month. It recognizes the person who, as the Good Guy Committee put it, "goes beyond the normal call of duty to make our Community a better place in which to live."

Summer Library Events

If you haven’t been to the Wilmington Memorial Library recently, you should probably give it a fresh look. While traditional libraries are filled with stacks of books, Wilmington has followed the modern trend of developing new spaces and events that cater to a broad audience.

I encourage you to check out their events page and see what they have to offer, from Lego building and coupon advise to book clubs and speaker series.

Spring Concert Series

*Full disclosure: I’m a band nerd who played tuba at Wilmington High School and then later at Syracuse University.

This week, WCTV wrapped up its coverage of what I’d refer to as Wilmington’s spring concert series. Over the course of three nights (1 in April, 2 in May), nearly a dozen groups performed at Wilmington High School. First up, it was the Jazz Concert (the “Pops” show) in the auditorium, then a pair of events in the gymnasium: the Strings Attached show and the Band festival, each featuring kids from grades 4 through 12.
