NRG-BAR’s Dan O’Rourke Takes On A 50-Mile Run For Your Health From Southborough to Boston and Back I will be leaving the Southboro library at 730am next

Saturday the 4th.  

 

Southborough, MA, --NRG BAR is a locally made energy bar sold at Whole Foods.  Creator and Founder, Dan O’Rourke, is putting his feet where his mouth is.  Hitting the road on a 50-mile run from his hometown of Southborough, O’Rourke is running all the way to Boston and back again to raise awareness about nutrition and fitness and how the foods we eat in our society effect the quality of our lives every day.  Run For Your Health is a 50-mile trek passing through myriad cities and towns on its way to Boston; Wayland, Newton, Watertown, Cambridge, Natick, Wellesley and Framingham while stopping at each Whole Foods Market along the course.

“People are going through life eating foods with little regard as to where they’re made, who makes them or what they’re made from.  Read ingredients is my message.”

Dan and his wife learned first hand the importance of a healthy lifestyle after years of struggling with fertility. With continued focus on health and nutrition, and no reproductive medicine, O’Rourke’s 50-Mile Run for Your Health falls ten days before the birth of their second daughter.  “The foods we eat affect our sleep, our concentration, our relationships and our health, every day.”

O’Rourke has been passionate and energized by the personal journey that he has taken in educating himself about what fuels his body and where it comes from.  “I wanted to eat an energy bar made from real foods I was already eating, that is why I created NRG BAR.”

             Join Dan on his run by stopping into one of (5) five Whole Foods locations as Dan takes a break to talk about the benefits of good nutrition and fitness.  Listen to a Whole Foods team member discuss some of their many healthy products.  They will hand out free samples of NRG BARS, Late July Crackers, Owater, Mix1 All Natural Protein Shakes, Pretzel Crisps and more.  Dan and his crew will be supported by the NRG BAR Land Rover as it follows him from town to town in support of the 50 Mile journey. 

 NRG BAR is a company founded with the simple mission of creating and advocating a healthy, happy lifestyle of real food living.  Enriching lives with what goes into a body; NRG BAR provides a foundation for living, feeling and being at your best every day.  NRG BAR is a locally-owned and operated company in Southborough, Massachusetts.  Please visit our website at www.NRG-BAR.com for further information about NRG BAR or contact Dan O’Rourke at 978-821-2878/dan@nrg-bar.com

‘Where’s Charley?’ Production to be Held at ARHS

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

Production Dates:
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.

Announcing Two Public Forums on the

MetroWest Regional Open Space Connectivity Plan

The MetroWest Regional Collaborative (formerly the MetroWest Growth Management Committee) and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) will host two regional public forums to review ideas for regional open space connectivity and obtain public input.  The public is free to attend either meeting:

Monday, Dec 13 from 6-8 pm at the Wayland Town Building (corner of Routes 20 and 126/27)

Tuesday, Dec 14 from 7-9 pm at Cordaville Hall, 9 Cordaville Road in Southborough  (Senior Center)

A MetroWest Regional Open Space Connectivity Plan is being developed for the nine (9) member municipalities of the MetroWest Regional Collaborative:    Weston, Wellesley, Wayland, Natick, Framingham, Ashland, Holliston, Southborough and Marlborough.   The Plan seeks to illustrate how the open space and trails in each town can become linked into an interconnected regional network, crossing municipal boundaries.  The plan will also identify unprotected land of potential conservation interest that would enhance the connectivity and conservation value of the existing open space.

This project has been funded through a District Local Technical Assistance Grant.

JOIN THE 111TH CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT

Make the Christmas Bird Count part of your holiday outdoor tradition! From mid-December through January 1, 2011, bird lovers in Massachusetts will be participating in the nation’s longest-running wildlife survey, the 111th Annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC). Families, students, birders, and scientists armed with binoculars, bird guides, and checklists go out on an annual seasonal mission – often before dawn. For decades, the desire to both make a difference and to experience the beauty of nature has enticed dedicated people to leave the comfort of a warm house during the holiday season. The data collected by bird observers over the past century allow researchers, conservation biologists, and other interested individuals to study the long-term health and status of bird populations across North America. When combined with other surveys such as the Breeding Bird Survey, the CBC provides a picture of how the continent's bird populations have changed in time and space over the past hundred years.

In Massachusetts, there are 33 geographic “count circles” where the bird counts occur. Each count circle is coordinated by an experienced Count Compiler who works with teams of birders responsible for that circle’s bird count. Beginning birders can join a group that includes at least one or two experienced birdwatchers in charge of covering a portion of the circle. In addition, if your home is within the boundaries of a count circle, you can report the birds visiting your feeder. In either case, if you have never been on a CBC before, locate and contact your local Count Compiler to find out how you can participate. To connect with the Compiler and find out about the local bird club in your area, visit the MassBird website at http://massbird.org/birdobserver/CBC/index.htm and birding clubs in your area. A list of Frequently Asked Questions with more details and national CBC results are found on National Audubon’s web page at www.audubon.org/bird/cbc/FAQ.html

Facts about canine influenza and a new vaccine that’s now available to protect dogs

Canine influenza is...

• An emerging threat to the respiratory health of dogs across the US – All breeds and ages are susceptible to infection – Because it’s a new virus, dogs have no natural immunity to it

 • Highly contagious and easily spread through: – Direct contact (licking or nuzzling) – The air (coughing or sneezing) – Contaminated surfaces (picked up on the hands or clothing of a person and then spread when another dog is touched or petted)

• Characterized by a persistent cough that may last several weeks, as well as runny nose, watery eyes, and a loss of appetite and/or energy

• Usually mild, but can progress to a more severe infection or pneumonia in 10% to 20% of cases, and is fatal in up to 8% of sick dogs

• A concern for owners whose dogs: – Come from a shelter, rescue center, breeder, or pet store – Board at a kennel – Attend doggie daycare or group training – Visit a groomer, dog park, or other places where dogs congregate – Participate in dog events and competitions

Be sure to read our Canine Influenza FAQ

Canine Influenza Vaccine, H3N8 is...

 • The first vaccine available to aid in the prevention of disease associated with canine influenza

 • Proven to significantly reduce the coughing, severity, and spread of canine influenza infection

• Proven safe; a killed virus vaccine developed, manufactured, and marketed by Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health and conditionally licensed by the USDA – A conditional license is issued to meet a special circumstance such as the emergence of a new virus for which there is no existing vaccine

• Administered in two doses given 2 to 4 weeks apart – One annual booster injection is needed to continue protection Please contact us to schedule a vaccination for your pet. For more information on canine influenza and the new vaccine, visit www.doginfluenza.com.

3 Important things to UNDERSTAND about the vaccine….

1.     It takes two vaccinations to provide the best protection. If given specifically for an upcoming boarding date, the first one needs to be given about 4 - 5 weeks prior to the boarding, and the second one needs to be given about 8 - 12 days prior to boarding.

2.     The vaccine does not prevent the disease. It will reduce the severity and duration of the cough, fever and other signs and reduce the chance of developing a life-threatening pneumonia.  

 

3.     If your vaccinated dog catches canine influenza, the vaccine will not prevent shedding of the virus from your sick dog to other dogs, but it will shorten the shedding period.

You’re Invited to our Library Open House, Saturday, December 4 at 2:00 p.m.

http://www.southboroughlib.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/poinsettia.jpgPlease plan to join us for an afternoon of holiday cheer and good tidings.  The Friends of the Southborough Public Library will host an Open House for the community at the library,  in the Main Reading Room.

The event begins at 2:00 p.m., and will feature musical entertainment by members of  the Algonquin Regional High School jazz ensemble, under the direction of Eric Vincent, and a select chorus, under the direction of Katherine Waters.

If you are interested in becoming a Friend, or in learning about ways to be involved at the Library – or if you just need to rest your weary bones after a hard day of holiday shopping – come to the Southborough Public Library on Saturday, December 4, for the afternoon Open House.  See you there!
