In the 1800s Americans became increasingly interested in collecting souvenirs that physically connected them to important places, people and events in the emerging national story. Fragments of a cherished quilt, gavels made from wood from famous trees, or bits stone collected on tourists’ journeys all tell us something about their collectors and what places and events they deemed historic. Explore this unique and timeless exhibition with Hilary Anderson Stelling, curator of the show. Free.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is is hosting a virtual event called the Million Mile Run. Our event may only be 5K, but that multiplied by lots of participants adds up fast! Last year, this run raised and donated in excess of $5,000.00!

Alexandra "Alex" Scott founded Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation on what seemed to be a simple concept. In the year 2000, when Alex was just 4 years old and battling neuroblastoma, she told her parents that she wanted to have a lemonade stand in her front yard. She surprised everyone when she announced her plan to donate the money from the stand to "her hospital" to help the doctors find a cure for all kids with cancer. This event is being hosted by Fitness Together in Lexington and sponsored by FLIR in Billerica and Arlex Oil in Lexington in efforts to raise money and awareness for the battle against childhood cancer. Thank you for joining us in support of this amazing Foundation!

Reinventing the Map
Susan Schulten, Professor, University of Denver

In a culture saturated with maps, we are accustomed to making them instantly and representing virtually any type of data. Technology makes this possible, but our contemporary use of maps is rooted in a shift that took place well over a century ago. In the 19th century Americans began to use maps not only to identify locations and represent the landscape, but to organize, display, and analyze information. Through maps of the environment, the distribution of the institution of slavery, the census, epidemics, and even their own history, Americans learned to view themselves and their nation in new ways. This program, part of a series related to the Museum and Library’s collection of historic maps is sponsored by the Ruby W. and LaVon P. Linn Foundation. Free.

NAMI Central Middlesex and The Edinburg Center will sponsor a NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program specifically for families of persons diagnosed with serious mental illness.  The 12-week series of classes will start in Lexington on Thursday, September 18,  from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.

The course will cover information about schizophrenia, the mood disorders (bipolar disorder and major depression), panic disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder; coping skills such as handling crisis and relapse; basic information about medications; listening and communication techniques; problem-solving skills; recovery and rehabilitation; and self-care around worry and stress.  The curriculum has been written by an experienced family member mental health professional and the course will be taught by NAMI Massachusetts family member volunteers who have taken intensive training as course instructors.

The Family to Family course balances basic psychoeducation and skill-training with emotional support, self-care and empowerment.  We hope families with relatives who have a serious mental illness will take advantage of this unique opportunity.
The course is designed specifically for parents, siblings, spouses, teen-age and adult children and significant others of persons with severe and persistent mental illness.  The course is not appropriate for individuals who themselves suffer from one of the major mental illnesses.

The NAMI Family-to-Family Education Course is free for participants.  Pre-Registration is required.
