Maynard Christmas Parade 2014

Hey, we had nice weather for our annual Christmas Parade here in Maynard.  Lots of nice photographs from the afternoon.

28th Annual OARS River Cleanup

This is my 13th year photographing the OARS annual river cleanup of the Assabet (and now Sudbury and Concord) River(s), that event in its 28th year.
