In 1876, the newly incorporated City of Newton completed construction on its own system and began pumping water from the Charles River to Waban Hill Reservoir in Chestnut Hill. The creation of the grand Reservoir Driveway surrounding the Chestnut Hill Reservoir cemented Chestnut Hill’s position as the center of activity in the area. Metropolitan Waterworks Museum historian Jean Innamorati will discuss the construction of these two systems and the impact that they had on the surrounding area that is today known as Chestnut Hill.

Join us for a screening of Merchants of Doubt. The film is based on the celebrated book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, and reveals the truth behind the secretive and charismatic pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities. They only succeed in spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats from toxic chemicals and pharmaceuticals to climate change. The film will be followed by commentary by Dan Ruben, Chairman of the Board of Green Newton and Executive Director of Boston Green Tourism. The program is part of the Greening Our Community Series and is cosponsored by Green Newton and Interfaith Power and Light.

angels

It’s not every day that you can meet someone who has survived a near-death experience and recovered with an awareness of the afterlife. Join us for an evening with someone who had an extraordinary event happen to him: after almost dying from an illness, David Cohen discovered that he had the ability to connect with his loved ones and others who had passed away. Unusual as it sounds, the phenomenon has become a legitimate topic since the best-selling On Death and Dying (1969) by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. Join David for a frank discussion about questions such as: “Where do you go after you pass away?” “Are our loved ones still with us?” and “Are our lives predetermined?” Bring your questions and an open mind.
