Moms and kids enjoyed the sunshine last week outside the dogwood-decked Mike’s Ice Cream.

Nearby, but out of the photo, were Vernhes and her infant son, Remy.

The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
