Where’s Charley?
(Book by  George Abbott, Music & Lyrics by  Frank Loesser, Based on Brandon Thomas’ play “Charley’s Aunt”)

Thursday, Friday & Saturday (
December 2nd, 3rd, 4th) at 7:00pm

ARHS Auditorium 79 Bartlett Street Northborough, MA 01532

Synopsis:
What do you get when two musical theatre masters adapt one of the most popular and successful farces ever written? A tuneful and hysterically funny classic that’s non-stop entertainment.

Oxford University students Charley and Jack invite the young and winsome Kitty and Amy to lunch under the chaperoning eye of Donna Lucia, Charley’s wealthy aunt (it is, after all, 1892). But when Donna Lucia doesn’t show, a desperate Charley disguises himself as his aunt so the young ladies can visit, unaware they’ve brought a chaperon of their own: Amy’s stuffy uncle, who promptly falls for Charley’s aunt-like charms! Then the real aunt shows up, and it’s all downhill from there: quick changes, fast talking, marriage proposals, compromising situations and rowdy hilarity.

http://spaceweather.com

SOLAR FARSIDE ACTIVITY: The Earth-facing side of the sun is relatively quiet, but the farside is alive with activity.  On Nov. 26th, NASA's twin STEREO spacecraft and the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) observed eruptions from multiple farside blast sites. Visit http://spaceweather.com to view movies of these events and for more information about when the active regions might turn to face Earth.

RADAR MOON: Earlier this week, the Moon passed through the beam of the US Air Force Space Surveillance Radar in Texas.  An electrical engineer in Georgia recorded the echo and made a simple image of the Moon based on the reflection.  Sights and sounds of the "radar Moon" are featured on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com.

Scout Troop 92 Participates in Service Project on Conservation Land

November 22, 2010 - Contributed photo -

Working with the Southborough Open Land Foundation (SOLF), Boy Scouts from Troop 92 performed service work at the Beals Preserve. Over the years, there has been an accumulating pile of illegally dumped yard waste (leaves, brush and grass clippings) at the Red Gate Lane entrance to SOLF's Beals Preserve. The Scouts worked hard to disperse the piles which will improve the environmental quality of the area. In addition to cleaning up the yard waste, the Scouts removed several large rocks from the trail and lined the trail edge with logs to help define it. The hope is that the improved appearance along with public outreach will help prevent future dumping.

Many residents and landscapers do not realize that it is illegal to bring their leaves and other yard waste to conservation land.

If you live near conservation land, never dump your yard waste (or Christmas trees) and make sure your landscaper does not either. Many times leaves are dumped in wetland areas which create backups or improper flow of the waterways.  Create a compost area in your own yard to create good mulch for your gardens or take it to the town's Transfer Station's compost bin. For more information about SOLF  go to www.solf.org

Letter to the Editor:

Since the Care Package Drive in October there has been an outpouring of thanks from our troops, especially those in really austere conditions. Courtney was home on mid-tour leave and personally sends her thanks. She says our care packages reduce these big brave warriors to little kids at Christmas. Pure joy and gratitude! Your generosity and kindness touch lives so deeply.

At Thanksgiving when we count our blessings, please keep our remarkable warriors in your hearts and prayers. Enjoy their words of thanks.

Why 21st Century Children Need Nature

Date: Thursday December 9, Time: 7:00pm

Location: Concord Children’s Center, 1300 Main Street Concord

Leader/Speaker: Author, David Sobel

Communities around the world are creating nature based playgrounds for young children.  Author and Educator David Sobel will discuss why this movement is so important to children growing up in today’s technology infused world, and why it is critical for us as parents, educators and communities, to assure that children have places to play and learn which encourage the connection to nature.  Child experts warn that today’s children suffer both physically and mentally from a lack of spontaneous play in nature.  Join us for a conversation about childhood, nature and what we can do today.

David Sobel is the author of several books including: Children’s Special Places, Beyond Ecophobia, and Children and Nature:Design Principles for Educators.  Director of the Center For Place Based Education at Antioch University, David Sobel, lectures nationally on parenting and educating that connects children with the natural world.
