Family Winter Nature Hike

Escape the pre-holiday chaos and fill your lungs with fresh, crisp air as we explore Paradise Ravine’s huge hemlock trees that lift high into the sky, and offer suitable habitat for porcupines, owls, and bobcats.  With leaves down, we should be able to find old stone walls an a number of beaver dams and their lodges, picturing them warm in their above ground platforms within the lodge.  Make a day of it!  You may want to head to the Historical Shirley Meeting house afterwards for the Annual Christmas Caroling program!

Please come prepared for the weather – dress in layers, wear warm hats, gloves/mittens and warm boot (snowshoes welcome, if we have snow!). Bring water and a light snack.  This program will be offered with light rain, but cancelled if the weather is severe.

The Kennedys: Rockin' Holiday Show 12-21-2019 (Ballroom) At well over a million miles of roadwork, including two stints as members of Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra, Pete and Maura Kennedy show no signs of slowing down either on tour or in the creative realm. Originally based in Austin, Texas, they spent a few years in the Washington DC area before moving to the East Village in New York City, where they have been based for most of the last two decades. The Kennedys are known nationwide as the hosts of the late lamented Dharma Café program on Sirius Satellite Radio, and on Broadway, they are regular cast members of Theatre Within's annual tribute to John Lennon - working in that capacity with Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, Jackson Browne, Cyndi Lauper and a host of others. Life on the road and time spent in the creative ecosystem of the Village have informed their songwriting over the course of 14 duo albums and half a dozen side projects, and their newest work, "Safe Until Tomorrow," is true to that tradition. What sets the album apart is the inclusion of several anthemic, rocking songs of social consciousness that convey a strong message best summed up in one of the song titles: “Be Silent No More.” The Kennedys' music has been described as uplifting, empowering and encouraging. In these turbulent times, they rise to the occasion. Bonus: For all you guitar dudes out there, Pete Kennedy is one of the unsung guitar-slingers of our time; understated and mind-blowing at the same time. He has a new memoir out called "Tone, Twang and Taste" about his adventures on guitar, and he'll be reading a little bit from that book. https://tickets.bullrunrestaurant.com/TheKennedys

About Shirley, MA
Shirley is a rural industrial town located on the lowlands of the Catacoonamaug River. A handful of colonists arrived in 1720 and settled on scattered farms throughout the town.

Early in its history Shirley was supported by its many farms and orchards. There was an increase in industrial activity around 1790 and the first paper mill was opened followed shortly after by a small iron works and nail factory.

The location of the water to power industries served to create an industrial village along the narrow valley where Shirley is located. Many of the period brick towered mills still survive and create an authentic period landscape.
