The Burden - Movie and Discussion
10:30 AM - 1:30 PM

The local chapter is of Citizen's Climate Education is hosting a free showing of the film "The Burden"

The_Burden_One_Sheet.jpg

This event is brought to you by: The Citizens' Climate of North Central MA 

Image may contain: text

Press Release (see comments below): 

“The Burden,” is a documentary about the enormous risks the military faces because of U.S. dependence on fossil fuels and the steps defense leaders are taking to transition to clean energy.

"Until I saw The Burden, I didn't realize that so many of our casualties in war zones happen with military convoys transporting fuel in conflict areas,” said Carolyn Sellars, co-leader of Citizens' Climate of North Central MA. “Generating power from renewable sources like solar would eliminate much of that risk.”
Additionally, the U.S. military is increasingly responding to catastrophes and conflicts that have been exacerbated by climate change. Defense Department reports have referred to climate change as a “threat multiplier,” a situation that will escalate unless we reduce the heat-trapping emissions from fossil fuels that drive climate change.
 
“As the title of the film implies, the burden of our dependence on oil is costly in both lives and money, and that’s why the military is leading the way on the clean energy transition,” said Sellars.

Being Mortal - Book Study Group
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

20696006

 

 

Kathy Benson, LICSW at Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice will lead a book discussion on "Being Mortal" by Atul Gawande.

Dr. Gawande offers a timely account of how modern Americans cope with decline and mortality. Rather than simply inform patients about their options or tell them what to do, some doctors, including the author, are involving the senior and honoring THEIR wishes regarding life choices. 

Being Mortal is a sensitive, intelligent and heartfelt examination of the processes of aging and dying.

Preparation is to read (or listen to) the book but please come whether you had a chance to read/finish the book.

Nashoba Nursing Service and Hospice is a local, not-for-profit home health, palliative and hospice agency. Nashoba Nursing Service and the Nashoba Associated Boards of Health have been a trusted community health partner serving Townsend since 1931.  www.nashoba.org

Hall of Presidents Book
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

James Buchanan by Jean H. Baker

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

The 33 1/3 Club

Ever look back and think about how listening to music was an activity all on its own? 

Got Vinyl?

 Bring in your own stack of vinyl records and share your favorites with other music enthusiasts.  If you can’t bring your own, check out the collection at the Townsend Public Library.  No matter what your taste in music, members of the Townsend Library 33 1/3 Club are enamored to spin and listen to those old familiar tunes to the most esoteric melodies.

Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Join Dave Schuttler, Bradley Sherwood  and Ward Clark for an evening of music and conversation!

Hall of Presidents Book
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Abaraham Lincoln by David Herbert Donald

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

Hall of Presidents Book
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Andrew Johnson by Annette Gordon-Reed

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

Hall of Presidents Book
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Ulysses S. Grant by Josiah Bunting

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.
