Light the Town Purple! Cancer Awareness Event Leominster

Michelle and I were so proud to win the contest for the best store front display for Leominster's Light the Town Purple Event on Thursday, May 11. This event is in support of the Greater Gardner Relay for Life, sponsored by the American Cancer Society. It was also a reminder for all of us to get cancer screenings early.

Offbeat Avenue was one of many local businesses that decorated their store front window in purple to show our support!

Watch our interview with Mayor Dean Mazzarella here:

Light the Town Purple: With Song!

It was a cool but very sunny evening when the event started at the steps of Leominster City Hall. The purple fire engine pulled up, along with the purple-adorned trolley full of the Fallbrook School Songbirds, who wowed us with their singing performances that evening.




It was the perfect spring evening.

It was a wonderful event! Thanks to the city of Leominster, the Mayor, and his amazing staff!
