Brookline offers its own working farm-complete with farm stand, the oldest country club in the nation, a town golf course, a magnificent park on a hillside overlooking Boston which includes an open air skating rink, a highly interesting transportation museum, and the home in which John F. Kennedy was born.

ABOUT DREAMFAR HIGH SCHOOL MARATHON


Mission:  Challenge high school students to reach their full potential—physically, socially, emotionally, and academically—through a mentor-supported marathon training program.

 

Vision:  Ensure every high school student in New England has the tools to realize their full potential in school and beyond.

 

Dreamfar High School Marathon (DHSM) helps high school students discover their potential through marathon training.  Students from several schools form one team and train together during the school year, working toward the ultimate goal of completing a 26.2-mile race in Providence, RI.  Under the supervision of a professional coach and with the support of dedicated mentors, the students are asked to run a little farther every week.  Each successful run teaches the value of hard work, commitment, and team support.  As students cross the finish line, they experience the impossible becoming possible.

Eleni Gage Reading, Book Signing and Q&A
Author, seasoned journalist, and travel memoirist Eleni Gage hosts a book singing, Q&A and reading of her new novel The Ladies of Managua. THE LADIES OF MANAGUA (St. Martins Press; Hardcover; May 5, 2015; $26.99)follows three generations of Nicaraguan women each with a secret to conceal. Brought together to bid farewell to their loving patriarch, these strong-minded ladies are ultimately forced to confront their pasts and their fraught relationships with one another and their homeland. From the lush, exotic beauty of Nicaragua and it's revolutionary history, to the steamy, straitlaced streets of 1950s high society New Orleans, Eleni Gage creates an epic saga of turbulent times that shape the lives of one family. Maria Vazquez returns to Nicaragua for her grandfather's funeral while carrying a secret package--and the burden of her strained relationship with her mother Ninexin, a storied revolutionary. Between Maria and Ninexin lies resentment created by the death of Maria's father, who was killed during the revolution, leaving Maria to be raised by her grandmother Isabela while Ninexin fought for the new Nicaragua. Misunderstood by one another, both Maria and Ninexin rely on Isabela to navigate the muddy waters of what has become of their family. While mourning the loss of her husband, the widow, Isabela, is also mired in memories of her youth in New Orleans, where she passionately loved and lost sixty years earlier. When the women come together and are forced to reveal the secrets they've struggled to conceal, they expose the consequences of their past choices and begin to understand the ways in which love can shape their futures. THE LADIES OF MANAGUA delves deeply into one family's most intimate secrets and reminds us what it means to love the people and the places we each call home.

Watch the Skies: Boston MegaGame
The aliens have landed and it's up to the nations of Earth to unite... or not.  
Or at the very least, pass some UN resolutions and try not to spy on each other too much.  And then there's all that interesting alien tech floating around in the grey market...

How will it all shake out?  There's only one way to find out:  

A MEGAGAME.

What is a megagame?  It's like a game but bigger.  Mega-bigger.

Part RPG and part board game, Watch the Skies brings together 30-53 players who will play on teams as various nations and the alien visitors.  Each nation is made up of a team fufilling different roles:  the Foreign Minister, the Top Scientist, the Military Chief, and the Head of State.  The Foreign Minister will hold talks with other countries and the UN.  The Top Scientist will research new and alien technologies.  The Military Chief will control the military and the spies.  The Heads of State will listen to his advisers and ultimately call the shots for his nation.  And the aliens... well, you'll have to play the game to see what they're up to.

Inspired by the recent megagame episode of Shut Up and Sit Down a group of passionate gamers are excited to bring Watch The Skies to Boston.  The game will last approximately 6 hours.  All materials will be provided by the hosts.  For more information on the megagame please go to http://www.megagame-makers.org.uk/megagamet-wts.htm. For those of you that watched the Shut Up and Sit Down episodes: we are using an updated Watch the Skies game.  They have worked with the original game to change any aspects that were spoiled in the video and updated parts of the megagame to be even more awesome.  Don't worry, you'll have a completely unique experience. Want to get the latest information about MegaGames happening in New England? Check us out at MegaGames United

Introduction to Japanese Taiko Drumming

Want to try out this engaging, dynamic art form in a no-pressure environment?

Bring a friend or bring a group of friends! Designed as an engaging social activity, this one time worskhop will focus on learning some of the basics of taiko drumming and having fun! We'll give some background on the art form, tell you a little about the instruments, get you warmed up with some stretches, give an overview on how to stand and hold your bachi (drum sticks), then teach you some basic patterns to a song!

You won't be lost if it's your first time because there is no pre-requisite, and the emphasis will be on recreation and play. Bring a water bottle, comfy clothes to move around in, and a curious, eager mindset. Shoes are not allowed in studio.

If this date sells out, most likely we will offer this workshop monthly. Check our website for registration links. www.TheGenkiSpark.org. If you have questions feel free to contact Karen at Karen@TheGenkiSpark.org or 617-308-4900.

Space is limited. No refunds for no shows. If a cancellation is made within 10 days of the workshop, a class credit may be applied toward a future workshop. If a cancellation happens with less than 10 days notice, a class credit will be offered only if the spot is filled.
