Help save the Connecticut River from an alien invader! This is a great opportunity to get on the water and have some fun... all for a good cause. Water chestnut is an invasive plant that has the potential to spread and get out of control. It is wreaking havoc on native species and interfering with recreation on our rivers. We will be hand-pulling the plants which pull up easily! Join staff from Northfield Mountain and the Connecticut River Watershed Council for this team effort to help keep the area in and around Barton Cove free of water chestnut. Meet at the Barton Cove Canoe and Kayak Rental Office in Gill, MA. A confirmation email with what to wear and bring will be shared with registered participants. For ages 10 and older. To pre-register, please call 1-800-859-2960.
When: Jul 28, 2016 12am to Jul 28, 2016 12am in Stoneham, MA
Young Performers Bring Musical Tale Barnum To Life
The big top circus was the creation of Phineas Taylor Barnum, a consummate showman who wasn't above creating a tall tale or two to entertain the crowds and make a buck. In the musical Barnum -- performed by young actors in grades 4-9 -- you'll find out more about the life and times of the man who brought us one of America's most enduring entertainment institutions. Filled with the color, warmth and magic that Barnum introduced to the world, this is the exciting musical version of how "The Greatest Show on Earth" came to be.
Stoneham Massachusetts was originally settled by farmers in 1645 and was incorporated as a town in 1725. Stoneham is located just north of Boston at the interchange of Routes 93 and 95 so it provides easy access to all parts of New England.
Stoneham is presently renovating the central business district to keep it vibrant and current with the active participation of the business community.
The town is a community of families that enjoys the beautiful park areas including the Stone Zoo as well as a municipal skating arena and a municipal nine hole golf course. The town emphasizes youth participation in sports and other activities through both public and private sponsorship.
