By Barbara Evangelista, Publisher May 3, 2017

Winner!  The winner of four admissions to BrickFair New England in Marlborough this weekend is Meghan Bacon!  Meghan, please look for an email.

There are some fun annual Spring events happening this weekend -- WESTFEST Food Truck Festival and Health & Wellness Fair in Westford on Saturday (we'll be there -- look for us in the side field!), Healthy Kids Day at the Greater Lowell YMCA, the annual May Breakfast at Chelmsford First Parish Church, and BrickFair New England in Marlborough on Saturday and Sunday (see our coupon code for $5 off per ticket).

Assistant Publisher Wendy and her daughter Emily had fun checking out the new Cuisinart® Chef's Classic Color Cookware Set this week and share their favorite Skillet Shepherd's Pie recipe.  

Are you considering a CSA for this summer or fall?  Bethany from Farmer Dave's shares some reasons why a CSA is a great investment in your family's health.

This week you'll also find Part 2 of our Summer Camp & Kids Activities Guide, with 14 more local and overnight camps and summer activities.
