The Breakers, a jazz group with a big band sound, will perform a benefit concert Sunday, July 25 at 2 p.m. at the Rockville Community Chapel. The chapel is located on Old Rockland Street, off Route 17 and behind Green Thumb.

The Breakers is a part of the Bay Winds North Ensemble; both groups are under the direction of Marlene Hall. Donations will be accepted at the door, with proceeds going toward the chapel restoration project. Lemonade and home-baked goods will be on sale during intermission.

The board of the Rockville Community Chapel has been working diligently toward raising funds to repair and shingle the roof, a major step in preventing further damage to the interior of the building and antique fixtures.  Thanks to the membership, benefactors and fundraising, this summer holds the promise of completing this task.

The Rockville Community Chapel no longer functions as a church, but is a place where weddings, funerals, quilt shows, concerts and other activities take place during the summer months. It is the last public building standing in Rockville and holds an important place in the history of the tiny village.

Thanks to Susan Ward, the chapel now boasts a Web page,, to check for upcoming events and other pertinent information. Scheduled next month is a concert featuring Sybil Wentworth and her brother Phil Clements Sunday, Aug. 15 at 3 p.m. A fundraising spaghetti supper, now an annual event, will be held Oct. 30 at the Rockport Masonic Hall.
