It’s mid-June and there’s a lot going on this weekend in town June 19 isn’t on the weekend, but the celebration of Juneteenth is! If you are a gardener, there’s a way to share your plants that have multiplied, and at the same time receive more for free at the Plant and Seed Swap at the library. If you are celebrating Father’s Day, you can take your dad to a whiskey tasting at Arsenal Yards or to a celebration of Mediterranean food and music at the Armenian Cultural and Education Center. For the younger set a performance of Fiddler on the Roof by the Watertown Children’s Theater is sure to bring lots of smiles.
