Erin On The Rox By Erin Baumann

Last Thursday, Roxbury was one of the many communities on the eastern seaboard affected by the worst blackout in American history. Most made the best of it having impromptu deck parties. No lights and a hazy moon in the beginning of the night showed off an amazing view of the stars. Thankfully we all had our power back at 2 a.m.

Happy Sweet 16 to Lauren Willis ~ August 13. She celebrated her special birthday with family and friends at the Mayors Committee on August 16.
