misc_none 9:00 AM  -  5:00 PM Film screening of The Midnight Ride of Me and Paul Revere Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Phil Lupsiewicz   978-318-7833   phil_lupsiewicz@nps.gov
   

Minute Man National Historical Park will debut the new film, The Midnight Ride of Me and Paul Revere throughout the day on Saturday, April 18, 2015 in the Blue theater at Minute Man Visitor Center. The show will be part of Patriot’s Weekend and Junior Ranger Day activities, as well as a feature for National Park Week, April 18th to the 26th at the park. 

A production of Vaudeville Pictures, the film’s creators Bob Lawson, a Concord resident, videographer and history buff, and Peter A. Cancilla, of Boston-based Vaudeville Pictures, began the project on Patriots Day 2013, and filmed in many of the actual locations portrayed in the tale. “The initial idea was to base much of the film on Longfellow’s poem, Paul Revere’s Ride”, says Lawson. “But then I came upon Steve Martin’s song, Me and Paul Revere which tells the story from the viewpoint of the horse. I matched up Longfellow with Brown Beauty, and it was off to the races! Peter’s puppet magic and lots of fun music make this a really special short film.”

On Monday, April 20th at 12:00pm, noon, you can meet the filmmakers and learn about the art of puppetry, filmmaking and what it was like to create a project with live action, puppets and music.

Admission to the Minute Man Visitor Center and the movie are free and will be shown continuously  throughout the week.

Although the ground is slightly rough, the pace is slow so the walk is accessible to most. Children with adults and beginners are welcome. We will enjoy a varied habitat, including mixed woods, open fields, and a stream. Bring binoculars if you have them.  Boots are recommended if there has been rain recently.

 Talk by renowned environmentalist/economist Lester Brown
Thursday, May 7, 7:30 pm
Clarke Middle School Auditorium, Lexington

 LexGWAC will be honored to welcome pioneer environmental economist Lester Brown on Thursday, May 7 at 7:30 pm at Clarke Middle School Auditorium.   Please join us for an evening of wisdom and inspiration as he discusses his new book:

 The Great Transition Shifting from Fossil Fuels to Solar and Wind Energy

 After half a century of working on global environmental issues, Lester Brown, who pioneered the concept of sustainable development and of looking at global issues through an interdisciplinary lens, is retiring.

 His latest, and last, book describes the energy transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy that is under way.

 The Great Transition details the accelerating pace of this global energy revolution. As many countries become less enamored with coal and nuclear power, they are embracing an array of clean, renewable energies. Whereas solar energy projects were once small-scale, largely designed for residential use, energy investors are now building utility-scale solar projects. Strides are being made: some of the huge wind farm complexes under construction in China will each produce as much electricity as several nuclear power plants, and an electrified transport system supplemented by the use of bicycles could reshape the way we think about mobility.

Meet at 116 Vine Street; call if you are lost. Check out the spring warbler migration in the Lower Vine Brook conservation area. Warblers are small, beautiful tropical birds that come north to breed. Many different species of warbler stop off in this sheltered area on their way to the forests in northern New England and Canada. Some stay, but as trees leaf they are more difficult to see. In the spring, depending on the weather and the foliage, you can sometimes find a dozen species in a morning.

Children with adults are welcome. Bring warm clothes, boots if it’s wet, binoculars, and a bird book. No dogs. More than light rain or lightning will cancel the event.  If the weather is uncertain call the leader.

    Contact: Jane Park   (781) 862-4220   office@hancockchurch.org
   

On Saturday, May 9 at 7:30pm, A Joyful Noyse will perform a survey of music that would have been heard at the court of Ferrara, Italy in the 15th and 16th centuries. Come to Hancock Church, 1912 Mass Ave in Lexington, to hear Dufay, Josquin, and the talk of Europe at the time known as the Concerto delle Donne. The concert will start with some background and commentary by musicologist Dr Teresa Neff. A suggested donation of $10ports the Hancock Cantata Fund.

When we think of the important music centers of the world, perhaps Venice, Vienna, Paris and Hamburg come to mind. But what about Ferrara, Italy? Located 70 miles southwest of Venice in northern Italy, during the 15th and 16th century, Ferrara became a prominent center for the arts, not only in Italy, but in all of Europe.

The list of people writing music for, visiting, or working in Ferrara reads like a “who’s who” of Renaissance composers. Dufay, Josquin, Obrecht, Isaac, Brumel, Willaert, Rore, Wert, Marenzio, and Gesualdo all had some part in making Ferrara a music center of importance. This concert will also feature composers of lesser fame who worked at Ferrara, such as Viola, Martini, and Tromboncino.

The year 1580 marked an important event in the music life of Ferrara, the formation of the Concerto delle Donne. This group evolved into a trio of extraordinary female musicians who became the talk of all Europe. Their concerts were reserved for Duke Alfonso II, his wife Margherita Gonzaga and their invited guests. The only evidence as to what was performed at these secret concerts is Luzzasco Luzzaschi’s book of madrigals for one to three solo voices. It was published in 1601, four years after the death of Alfonso and the incorporation of Ferrara into the Papal States. 1597 also marked the end of Ferrara as a prominent music center.

Grab your pick axe and join your fellow Minecraftians for a week of game design, world creation, exploration, and modding madness. Campers will contribute to and create unique and amazing worlds that can be taken home and played on a personal Minecraft account. 

The virtual world combines with the physical when participants test game mechanics in the real world (an outdoor game of capture the flag or a scavenger hunt anyone?) and craft their own Minecraft gear using customized paper craft, perler beads, and other supplies. Campers can use their own Minecraft account or a temporary account from Empow Studios (no additional charge). All levels are welcome. 

This is a nut free program. Students should bring their own packed snack, lunch and water.

misc_none 9:30 AM  -  2:00 PM 20th Annual Genesis Battlegreen Run Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Robert Burbidge    7812724900   info@battlegreenrunfoundation.org
   

The 20th Annual Genesis Battlegreen Run will be held on Sunday, November 1, 2015 at Lexington High School. Since its inception in 1996, the Genesis Battlegreen Run has been established as one of the most popular road races in New England.

This event is unlike any other racing event from start to finish. Rene Rancourt, voice of the Boston Bruins, gets things underway with a stirring rendition of our National Anthem. Then the muskets fire, courtesy of the Lexington Minute Men, sending runners on their way. After finishing, runners indulge in a post race buffet which includes generously donated food from over 50 local restaurants and vendors. The Genesis Battlegreen Run has become a Lexington tradition, offering scenic, challenging courses, food, awards, entertainment and family fun!

Proceeds from the Genesis Battlegreen Run help fund the Battlegreen Run Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit. The Foundation helps provide support for:

  • Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston
  • Ovarian Cancer Education Awareness Network (OCEAN @ Mass General Hospital)
  • The Pauline Briggs Memorial Scholarship Fund (Local scholarship fund)
  • The Genesis Community Fund (Provides aid grants and need-based scholarships to local residents)

This being the 20th Annual Battlegreen Run, we hope to make this event bigger and better than ever! We expect over 800 runners and over 100 volunteers to participate in the following events:

  • Boston Volvo Family Fun Run 11:15 AM (free of charge)
  • Memorial Cancer Walk 5K 12:00 PM ($20 per student (18 & under), $20 per participant by August 1, $25 per participant August 2 – October 28,  $30 per participant October 29 – November 1)
  • Ralph Lord Memorial 5K Run 12:15 PM ($20 per student (18 & under), $20 per participant by August 1, $25 per participant August 2 – October 28,  $30 per participant October 29 – November 1)
  • Genesis Battlegreen 10K Run 12:15 PM ($20 per student (18 & under), $20 per participant by August 1, $25 per participant August 2 – October 28,  $30 per participant October 29 – November 1)
