Community Events at Augusta: Week 3

It’s Irish Week at Augusta and beyond the week long classes offered, there are countless events open to the community this week. Be sure to venture up the hill to the Augusta Heritage Center of Davis & Elkins College to check out a late night jam, to dance, or attend a lecture, a film screening, or one of two awesome concerts planned for this week.
