CAR WASH! The Stoughton High Varsity Football team will be hosting a Car Wash on Saturday, August 18.
This will take place at Walgreens Parking Lot in Stoughton, at the corner of Central and Washington Streets, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Cost for the car wash is only a donation of $5.
The Black Knights finished the 2011 season 6-5 and 3-1 in the Davenport Division, turning in their first winning season since 2006. Stoughton just missed out on a playoff berth.
The football team and coaches would love to see everyone at the car wash on the August 18 supporting the 2012 Black Knights and their quest to bring home a Davenport Division title.
ONLY TWO MORE CONCERTS LEFT! On Sunday night, The Corvairs played everything from Elvis to the Beatles and had their best performance in years! It was another fun-filled evening thanks to the Stoughton's Lions Club's Concerts in the Park Series.
Drummer and co-founder Ilene Corvini led the way, backed by guitarist Phil Brigham, keyboardist, guitarist and vocalist Kent Kreutler, and Louis Leeman on bass (see photos in the media gallery of this article).

He thanked the sponsors including Stoughton Cultural Council, Stephen Prone and The Prone Family Foundation, Randolph Savings Bank, Steve Kelly and KC Residential & Commercial Real Estate, Stoughton Cooperative Bank, Sheehan Funeral Home, Dr. Betsy Disharoon, Drs.
