The Workingman’s Band will hold its “Tribute To Woodstock” concert on Friday, October 18, 2019 at 7pm in the Wilmington Middle School Auditorium (25 Carter Lane).

The best part? This event is FREE (yes, FREE) and open to all thanks to the generosity of Wilmington’s Sarah DJ Carter Lecture Committee.
The committee’s funding comes from an endowment left to the Town in 1907 through the will of the late Sarah D. J. Carter. Carter requested that these events, which are held annually, remain free of charge and open to the public.
The committee is comprised of five residents appointed by the Wilmington Town Manager to serve three-year terms. Throughout the year, the committee is on the lookout for talented musicians and entertaining programs to present to residents and friends of the Town of Wilmington.
