We recognize that summer, in the calendar sense, might not be over but Labor Day does feel like the conclusion of the summer vibe. So in this week’s paper we look at a few of the events that made this mild, sometimes sunny, frequently rainy, summer unique. On the cover and above, kids attending the Currier Museum of the Art’s Summer Block Party in July get their faces painted by young artists from Manchester Central High School.
