During this beautiful weather, the Lamplighter hopes you're searching for outdoor dining in the downtown.

There are plenty of choices as more and more restaurants invest in outdoor settings.


It just keeps getting better

Just when you thought this car dealership couldn't get any bigger or more successful, word comes that it will experience a big expansion.

The Jaffarian Volvo dealership on River Street has announced a $1 million expansion. The Jaffarian family, owners of the dealership, announced the plan at a recent event that featured a visit from the president of Volvo USA.

The dealership is on River Street and is known for awards it wins most years for being the top dealership or among its very best.

The dealership is also known for events involving Boston sports celebrities, such as Red Sox players who meet the public at Jaffarian's.


Well deserved

Congratulations to Bob Conte Sr., who has been given the local Exchange Club's top award.

Conte has been named Exchangite of the Year by his fellow club members.

He has served on the club for decades, working on community service projects that help children and other people in the community.

It seems he never misses a Thursday Exchange lunch or other club event.


New look coming along the river

Look for some big changes on Water Street.

Word around town is that a new building is being considered for the Merrivista site. That's the elderly housing complex across from the fire station.

Also, look for some townhouses to be built on Water Street at a project to be named First Landing.
