On tap for this weekend - here and there

Open Space is hosting a book release party for "Beacon Soul" a hardcover book celebrating the first anniversary of the Beacon Art Salon. The party will be held tomorrow, Sunday April 27 from 4-6pm

For your today's activity calendar, Mr. Matthew Kinney sent me this information on Art Throughout the Orchard Apple Blossom Festival. The event is a fundraising event for a 12 year old boy in Clintondale named Adam who is dealing with a very rare and aggressive form of cancer.
There are various activities for the whole family and I understand sculpture sited around the orchard - some of which is Matt's. Here are the details:
