Join Environment Massachusetts, a state wide, citizen based environmental group, on a hike in Minute Man National Historic Park!

In light of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, Environment Massachusetts is putting together a hike at Minute Man National Historic Park on Saturday, July 23rd at 1:00. We'll be joined by Congresswoman Tsongas who has been a huge champion for protecting funding for our parks. We would love to have you join us on our hike as well! 

We will be meeting at the North Bridge Vistor Center, located at 174 Liberty St, Concord MA at 1:00. 

We know that with the support of our community, we can stop these shortsighted attacks on the Grand Canyon, the Everglades and other parks and public lands right here in Massachusetts so they're safe and beautiful for another 100 years. I can't think of a better way to celebrate our parks' 100th anniversary.

Please RSVP by emailing Yasmin Yacoby at yasmin@environmentamerica.org

Spectacle Management is proud to present An Evening with Art Garfunkel at Cary Memorial Hall in Lexington on Friday, October 21 at 8pm.  Although it has been over 40 years since Bridge Over Troubled Water was recorded, Art Garfunkel’s image and signature vocal remain among the most instantly recognizable in popular music.  His “beautiful countertenor,” as Neil Strauss described Art’s voice in The New York Times, is clear and resonant, surely one of the finest instruments in all of popular music, and a time-honored friend to a world of listeners. Tickets go on sale on Friday, May 20 at 10am at www.caryhalllexington.com or by calling 617-531-1257.
