LYRID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is entering a stream of dusty debris from Comet Thatcher, source of the annual Lyrid meteor shower. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on April 22nd with as many as 20 meteors per hour, although visibility will be reduced by bright moonlight. The best time to look, no matter where you live, is Friday morning during the hours before local dawn.  Visit http://spaceweather.com for live meteor counts and more information.

BIG SUNSPOTS: This week the sun is dotted with several large spots, a situation that will become increasingly common as Solar Cycle 24 intensifies.  Our new White Light Solar Observing System allows you to safely monitor these behemoth sources of solar activity.  Click here for more information:

The Culinary Arts staff and students at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School are pulling out all the stops to ramp up the restaurant offerings during the week. For five Tuesdays in a row, there will be special menus designed to tantalize the taste buds. On April 26th, from 11 AM until 1 PM, it’s a Gourmet Pizza Bar, with pizza fresh from the oven, ranging from the ordinary to the exotic. Pizza with the traditional salad bar and dessert will be offered for only $8.00 per person. The following week, May 3rd, it’s The Delicatessen, a Marlborough version of the New York Deli, complete with fresh  meats, sliced to order, toppings, sides, and of course a soup and salad bar, for only $8.50 per person. May 10th is a real switch…it’s a Breakfast Buffet, offered from 9 AM until 11:30 AM. Jumpstart the morning with an Omelet Station, Waffle Station, fresh fruit, pastries, coffee, tea and juice for $9.00 per person. It’s back to lunch on May 17th, with a Ballpark Cook Out, with the grills fired up to cook burgers, hot dogs, sausage, steaks, and all the trimmings and sides, for $8.00. Go Sox! The last of the special Tuesday menus is a traditional New England Clam Bake, with all you can eat ‘chowda,’ lobster, clams, shrimp , and more. This will be offered at market prices.

Call 508-485-9430, ext. 1119, now to reserve your spots. These special menus should fill up the Epicurean Room Restaurant, and you won’t want to be left out!

April 21, 2011 - Assabet Valley Mastersingers

 

Assabet Valley Mastersingers will focus on “A British Perspective” in the concert scheduled for 8:00 PM on Saturday, May 7th at Evangelical Congregational Church, West Main Street (Route 30) and Church Street, Westborough.  Poetry infuses all of the three widely different selections on the program.  Henry Purcell’s Come Ye Sons of Art is a celebratory Birthday Ode for Queen Mary written in 1694.  Lo, the Full, Final Sacrifice (1946) is a more solemn voicing of love and death by Gerald Finzi.  Finally, Benjamin Britten’s delightful and exuberant Rejoice in the Lamb (1943) proclaims the unique ways that each creature worships God.

  Artistic Director Robert Eaton will lead the ensemble, accompanied by organist Brett Maguire.  The four vocal soloists will be soprano Patrice Tiedemann, mezzo Jacque Wilson, tenor Stanley Wilson, and baritone Steven Small.

The location is accessible to the physically challenged.  Assistive listening systems, courtesy of Crossroads Community Foundation, are available at all concerts for use by hearing impaired audience members. Large print programs will be offered to those desiring enhanced readability.

            Concert tickets may be purchased at Robinson Music Company, Westborough; Shattuck Pharmacy, Northborough; Shrewsbury Federal Credit Union, Shrewsbury; English Garden Florist, Southborough; Arts Alliance, Hudson; and Joy-Den Jewelers and Main Street Café in Marlborough.  Advance sale tickets are discounted $1 (one) from the regular price of $18 (eighteen) and $15 (fifteen) for students and senior citizens.

            For further information please call (978) 562-9838 or reference www.avmsingers.org. Partial funding for the Assabet Valley Mastersingers, a non-profit organization, has been provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council through local Arts Councils.

2011 Annual Southborough Historical Society Member Meeting

Non-Members are welcome to attend!

Sunday May 1st, 2-4PM at the Museum

 25 Common Street, Southborough (behind the Pilgrim Church)

Election of officers, reports from committees and a short presentation "Southborough and the Civil War".  Light refreshments will be served.  Please join us!

We are also looking forward to encouraging potential non-members to join the Historical Society and help us continue our mission to preserve and promote the history of Southborough and it's people.  We have a great group of people that work regularly at the museum but more help is always needed to help maintain our collection as well as to help with the displays, plan events and many other assorted activities.

As part of this years meeting, we are also appealing to those who can support our cause and to consider a donation.  Since we signed our 2nd 10 year lease with the town in 2007, we have been responsible for the total operating cost of the Museum.  This includes heat, electricity, water, phone, alarm monitoring, insurance, snow removal, general repairs and maintenance.  These costs are significant for our organization that generates it's revenue simply from donations from our members and friends as well as from the sales of our various merchandise and books we have on sale in our Museum store.  So we could really use your help this year so please consider a donation and/or volunteering to help our cause.   Further information as can be found at www.southboroughhistory.org.  A new member and donation form can be found at http://www.southboroughhistory.org/SHS_New_Member_Form_2011.pdf.

We are pleased to welcome back Pete and Maura Kennedy, better known as The Kennedys, on May 14, 2011 at 7:30 at the Southborough Coffeehouse in Southborough, MA

 

Open to every moment, the much-traveled married duo of Pete and Maura Kennedy have spun their personal experiences, musical influences and philosophical beliefs into nine previous albums of winsome original songs, frequently seasoned with exquisitely-performed cover tunes, that blend acoustic-based folk, rock, country, pop and secular gospel into an inclusively delightful sound that’s all their own.  The Kennedys use their full palette of vocal and instrumental colors to bring their songs to glowing life. Maura’s lead vocals range from comforting to yearning, from girlish to womanly, from exuberant to delicate, sometimes bolstered by her own sweet harmonies and those of Pete and several guests. As usual, multi-instrumentalist Pete provides a vibrant tapestry of chiming, jangling and twanging guitars, as well as mandolin, keyboards, bass and drums, interwoven with Maura’s sturdy acoustic rhythm guitar, harmonica and glockenspiel.  Additional information can be found at their website: http://www.kennedysmusic.com

 

Tickets, and more information, can be obtained at www.steeplecoffeehouse.org.

 

 

For ten years, our the Tools for Schools program has helped shoppers like you support the school of your choice just by shopping with your AdvantEdge card. Many shoppers like you have registered their AdvantEdge cards to support their chosen school, but over time school closings, school consolidations and other changes among participating schools have invalidated school selections.

To ensure we credit the school of your choice accurately with the points you will earn on its behalf when our program relaunches July 31, we require you to re-enroll in the program. You must re-enroll to continue to earn credit for your chosen school in the upcoming academic year.

You may re-enroll your card to support your school for the 2011-2012 school year starting today, April 15th. Enrolling is simple and takes just minutes. To enroll now, click here.

We want to thank all of you who have been so supportive of Tools for Schools and encourage anyone who is new to the program to join today by registering and choosing a school to support. We look forward to the program's relaunch July 31.

If you have any questions or need assistance with your Tools for Schools efforts please contact us toll-free at (800) 352-4658, Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm, EST.

Patriots' Day in Lexington is a day filled with many fun things to do. For your convenience, we will be open on the holiday, Monday, April 18 from 10 am–4:30 pm. We have family activities planned, and a number of shows you won't want to miss.

"Sowing the Seeds of Liberty: Lexington and the American Revolution" provides a great way to start your tour through the area. Our photo exhibition on the national parks, "Treasured Lands" is a marvel to see. "Night Road: Photographs of Diners by John D. Woolf" and "Curator's Choice: Favorites from the Collection" are just a few of the other shows you can enjoy.
 

Also, the original "Lexington Alarm," the letter drafted the morning of April 19, 1775 to alert the colonies that war with the British had begun with the shots fired on the Lexington Green will be on display through April 26, 2011. Our "Alarm" letter, which had been in a private collection for 220 years, is placed on view once a year at the Museum in honor of Patriots' Day.

Museum Awarded Grant from Institute of Museum and Library Services

The Museum has been awarded an American Heritage Preservation grant from the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to support conservation and archival housing for three fraternal banners in the permanent collection. The Museum is one of only four institutions in the state to receive an award.

The IMLS grant is particularly important to the Museum due to the nature of its Masonic and fraternal collections. Many of the objects in the Museum’s holdings are not widely collected by other history museums, and the staff often has to devise creative solutions to store the objects and to conserve them.

“This grant will allow us to extend our careful and creative search for appropriate storage solutions to our banner collection,” said Aimee E. Newell, Ph.D., Director of Collections. “Part of the funding will allow us to fabricate custom storage boxes for two of the banners. These custom archival boxes will not only protect these fragile silk items, but will incorporate a padded resting board, allowing us to display the objects with significantly less danger of damage. The Museum serves as a model for many Masonic museums and libraries here and abroad. The IMLS grant is very important in supporting our efforts to preserve parts of American fraternal history that are in danger of disappearing. We are extremely grateful for the funding.”

Also, a special workshop for teens will be held on Thursday, April 21 at 3:00 PM on writing Eco-Poetry. This will be led by Anna Catone, our Poet-In-Residence. Sign up at the Library.

For information on any of these events, please call the Library at 508.485.5031  Hope to see you during the vacation week
