And you make it possible for us to support important local charities. Because we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your donations are tax deductible.

Shirley Town Tree Lighting

The lights have been lit at Whiteley Park.

Families enjoyed a concert by the Nashoba Valley Concert Band, a sing-a-long with ShirleyArts!, hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows, and of course, a visit from our friends from the North Pole and the lighting of the Christmas Tree.


Thank you to all the individuals and organizations who made this possible:

Jess Myshrall, Kim Lombardo, plus their families and friends for organizing and hanging the lights.

The Shirley Venture Crew for the hot chocolate, Linda Cournoyer for the marshmallows, and the Shirley Fire Department for the transportation.

Nicky Lowney, the Ellis family and the Valeri family for technical assistance.

The Guthrie Brothers for donating the tree in honor of their families.

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown

Live Theater is Back!

A year and a half after we started rehearsals, we were excited to present the musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown live, and in-person.

Thank you to everyone who supported this production.
