​The sounds of The Shananagans (right) are just one group who's music floated through the air on Saturday.

Were you lucky enough to have been
in the area when the Old 
Colony Highlanders Pipe 
Band (right)performed? 
What a delight sight! 
The sounds drifted through 
the grounds. You could 
witness foot tapping, and 
head nodding to the rhythm 
of the bagpipe music. The 
melodies were a fabulous 
way to open the festivities.

During the months of November and December, the Great Ponds Gallery in the Lakeville Public Library at 4 Precinct Street will feature the medium of oils by Margaret McEachern with her exhibit titled: HOME HERE. Carver resident and artist Maggie McEachern creates narrative oil paintings that place the human form in nature. Growing up on the South Shore and spending time on the Cape, she aims to develop works that are reminiscent of summertime and the beach.

This free exhibit is open to the public from October 23 through December 27. The library is open from noon-8PM Mondays; 10am to 8pm Tuesdays and Thursdays; 10am-6pm Wednesdays; and 10am-2pm Saturdays. It is closed Sundays and Fridays. 
For additional information please contact the library director at 508.947.9028.

There were several little ones (below & right) who joined the Apponequet students coloring the tar with chalk donated by the Lakeville Arts Council.
The reception for this exhibit will take place on Thursday evening, October 26 between 6 & 7:30PM.
