Marlborough – A very unique concert will be presented Tuesday, March 11, at 7 p.m. by The Friends of the Marlborough Public Library. “Grand Harmonie,” featuring Yoni Kahn, horn, and Jessica Rucinski, piano, will take place in the library’s Bigelow Auditorium, 35 W. Main St. The concert is free and open to the public. This marks the fourth concert in a series of five of The Friends of the Marlborough Public Library’s 2013-14 Yacyshyn Concert Series.
Grand Harmonie is a vital new force in the cultural landscape, using a core group of wind players as both a chamber ensemble and the backbone of an orchestra. The ensemble is dedicated to historically informed performances of music from Mozart to Brahms on the instruments for which it was written, in concerts ranging from intimate salon-style events to full scale orchestral programs and opera.

Westborough – Westborough Girl Scout Troop 30555 will be holding its next PS 6 foam (Styrofoam™) recycling event Saturday, March 29, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Tufts Machine Lot on East Main Street. For the third time, Central One Federal Credit Union will sponsor the event, which is run in partnership with ReFoamIt.
Residents from Westborough and surrounding communities can bring PS 6 (Styrofoam™) gift packaging, egg cartons, coffee cups without wraps, coolers, meat and veggie trays, take-out containers and any other foam product with PS 6 on it. All labels, paper, cardboard, and tape should be removed and food-related containers should be rinsed or washed. Clean packing peanuts will be accepted and given to a local UPS store for reuse.
Once the foam is collected, ReFoamIt processes it into compressed blocks, then small pellets that are recycled into picture frames, eyeglass frames, car bumpers and molding. It takes hundreds of years for PS 6 foam to decompose in a landfill. Recycling it removes it from the waste stream and puts it back into useful products.
