I missed the school concert recently but a parent kindly sent me a very nice description of it: "Music teacher Janice Kyle and pianist Russell Ames led each grade through spirited and fun songs. The seventh-grade chorus began the evening with several beautiful numbers, and then the kindergartners shyly came on stage, marveled at the bright stage lights, and then sang their songs. The first graders had cowboy hats which they threw in the air after they yodeled their way through a cowboy tune. The third graders wore hula skirts and sang a Hawaiian song. And then the fifth graders sang songs from the Revolutionary War. Westport has a lot of talented young singers and it was a joy to hear them sing."

Last week I wrote about Molly Rascoe, our WCS student who's dealing with kidney failure and other complications of a rare autoimmune disease. The WCS Student Council is sponsoring a Day for Molly Friday, June 18, from 4 to 8 p.m. on the school field, with music, square dancing, games, and much more. And the Polo Match for Molly, which was rained out last week, has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 19, starting at 1 p.m., off Stevenson Road.
Finally, the fireworks fund is only about one-quarter of the way to its goal. You can help by donating to one of the boxes displayed in local businesses
