Combine voting with Ice Cream Social tomorrow

Pine Grove School’s annual Ice Cream Social will be held tomorrow from 5 to 7 p.m. at the field at the school. Hosted by the school’s PTA, the fundraiser will sell sausages, pizza, hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy and, of course, ice cream provided by White Farms Ice Cream Stand of Ipswich. Other activities like hair braiding, charm-making and dunk tank dropping will be available as well. All are welcome.

Before or after you get your ice cream, head over to the hall at St. Mary’s Church across the street from the school for the annual town election, with voting from noon to 8 p.m. There are two contested races this year — for Board of Selectmen and light commissioners.


The Triton Regional High School Spring Concert will be held on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Performances featured include those by the concert band, jazz band, singers, jazz choir, women’s choir and men’s choir. This concert is the culmination of the year’s work by these groups, who are under the direction of Sue Densmore and Bob Lathrop. The concert is free, and all are welcome.

Related to this, the Triton Marching Band will participate in the Memorial Day parades in Salisbury and Rowley on Monday, May 27, at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. respectively.


Team Triton, the group charged with raising funds for the $2.5 million renovation of the 50-year-old high school stadium, is working on its latest fundraiser — collecting old shoes, sneakers and work boots for recycling purposes. So far, the group has raised $1,500. Share your spring cleaning finds with the group and drop off your old shoes at the following locations: the main offices of all five Triton schools; Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank locations; The Yankee Runner; and The Greater Boston Running Company.
