Since July, Thursday nights on the Branford green have been set to music thanks to a small-scale program set up by Branford Parks and Recreation with support from the First Selectman's Office, the Town of Branford and Branford Jazz Series. Each week from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m., different local talents come out to play outdoors, providing socially distanced light entertaiment. The light music nights will continue through Thursday, Oct. 8.
On Sept. 17, local band Lunchbox entertained and also donated their $250 fee to the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter emergency medical fund, said Parks and Recreation Director Alex Palluzzi. Palluzzi said their contribution was further supplemented by listeners who pitched in additional donations for the cause that night. The contributions were gratefully accepted by shelter director Laura Burban.
