We’ve got a little bit of hometown pride in this week’s issue. See page 12 for the scoop on local filmmaker Alyssa Botelho’s latest venture.
She is onto her next film and she could use a little boost from her hometown cronies. This one is based on a real person. local abolitionist Polly Johnson. If you grew up around here, you’ve probably heard the name. I did, but why didn’t I know she was a confectioner? I’m looking forward to Alyssa’s film.
We have lots of other fun stuff in this issue, of course. The biggest little feast is this weekend (see page 3), where you can get the world’s best malassadas, among other things.
Acushnet held a ceremony to give Purple Heart coins to some of the town’s Purple Heart recipients. If you have a name you want to submit, please do. See page 13 for the ceremony.
We have some meeting coverage for you, too. See page 4 for more news from the last SB meeting.
Fairhaven wants everyone to fill out the internet survey (see page 5). Who knows, it might make state officials able to see past Beacon Hill.
Gracie made the team! Really, Grace made the UMassD volleyball team. She’ll be hanging out with those tall women for a bit. That should be fun. See page 19 for a picture of Grace with her new best friends.
There’s other stuff in here, of course. You’ll have to look through to see it all. Be sure to notice who our advertisters are so you can tell them you saw their ads in the Neighb News.
Until next week then, see ya
Glory to Ukraine!
Glory to the Heroes!
