An Introduction to Stone Carving with Chris Pellettieri

The art of stone carving has been practiced for thousands of years, leading to some of the most enduring achievements of all time: The Great Pyramids, the Parthenon, the cathedrals of Europe – even our own Island cemeteries. Yet few people today have any idea of what traditional stone carving is, what the tools look like, or how they are used to transform stone. Chris Pellettieri will share the tradition and stories of his apprenticeship at the Cathedral of St. John The Divine in Manhattan in the late 1980s, as well as some of the commissions he has done and training programs he has run in the decades since.

Chris Pellettieri is a traditional stone carver and founder of Pellettieri Stone Carvers’ Academy. He most recently gave a demonstration of his craft in the Barn at the MV Museum.

Hybrid: What is this thing called CBD?

If you are like a lot of people, you may have questions about CBD, which
seems to be advertised everywhere.


What exactly is CBD and where does it come from?
What does it do to the body?
Cannabis history?
Is CBD from the marijuana plant?
Will I get high from using CBD?
Can I drive my car after using CBD?
Just what are the positive effects of using CBD?
How do I know what a proper dose is?
When is the best time of day to use CBD?
How do I judge the quality of CBD products?
What the heck does CBD stand for anyway?
These are some of the many questions people have been asking about
Cannabidiol (CBD). Primabee is a local company owned by a Chatham
resident, Paul Bordé.
Background:
Paul had a serious back injury (L4) in 2019 and stumbled on CBD from his
chiropractor as an aid to help in his recovery. It opened his eyes to alternative
wellness of CBD, and to the incredible worldwide growth of CBD and
Cannabinoids in general. Paul has done extensive research while traveling
around the country to learn about the the availability, use and benefits of CBD
products.
He is offering an information session to answer any questions you might have
about CBD products. The session would last approximately 90 minutes,
depending on the questions people have. Mr. Bordé uses Powerpoint and other visuals to clarify information.

This event is also available via live stream.  https://vimeo.com/event/2446697

Sharing your wishes for end-of-life care can bring you closer to the people you love. It’s critically important.

We know that no guide and no single conversation can cover all the decisions that you and your family
may face. What a conversation can do is provide a shared understanding of what matters most to you
and your loved ones. This can make it easier to make decisions when the time comes.
Join the conversation to gather the toolkit!

After 2 years of runnig this program via Zoom, we will host this presentation live in the program room

Virtual : The Galileo Project: In Search for Technological Interstellar Objects

The search for extraterrestrial life is one of the most exciting frontiers in science.

An extraordinary interstellar meteor, CNEOS 2014-01-08, also known as interstellar object `Oumuamua and Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) near Earth passed through our solar system in 2017 and is currently cruising between the orbits of Uranus and Neptune. : You can track ‘Oumuamua’s current location and speed through a live tracker by @SpaceIn3Dsite or at 

https://spacein3d.com/asteroid-oumuamua-live-tracker/.

Scientists have yet to classify ‘Oumuamua, partly because they honestly have no idea. At first, they thought it was an asteroid—a large chunk of rock from a distant star system. Then, a comet—a cosmic iceberg flung loose from somewhere in the great unknown. Now scientists and researchers are stumped. Only left to speculate, with little data, what the cosmic visitor is as it gets further and further from view.

This lecture concerning Oumuamua will be lead by Avi Loeb, Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science, at Harvard University. Avi is the head of the Galileo Project, founding director of Harvard University’ 'Black Hole Initiative', director of the Institute for Theory and Computation at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and the former chair of the astronomy department at Harvard University (2011–2020). Avi chairs the advisory board for the Breakthrough Starshot project, and is a former member of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology and a former chair of the Board on Physics and Astronomy of the National Academies.

Avi had been the longest serving Chair of Harvard Department of Astronomy and the Founding
Director of Harvard’s Black Hole Initiative. He is an elected fellow of the American Academy of
Arts &Sciences, the American Physical Society, and the International Academy of Astronautics.
Loeb is a former member of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology
(PCAST) at the White House, a former chair of the Board on Physics and Astronomy of the
National Academies, opics, including black holes, the first stars, the search for extraterrestrial

The search for extraterrestrial life is one of the most exciting frontiers in science.

An extraordinary interstellar meteor, CNEOS 2014-01-08, also known as interstellar object `Oumuamua and Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) near Earth passed through our solar system in 2017 and is currently cruising between the orbits of Uranus and Neptune. : You can track ‘Oumuamua’s current location and speed through a live tracker by @SpaceIn3Dsite or at 

https://spacein3d.com/asteroid-oumuamua-live-tracker/.

Scientists have yet to classify ‘Oumuamua, partly because they honestly have no idea. At first, they thought it was an asteroid—a large chunk of rock from a distant star system. Then, a comet—a cosmic iceberg flung loose from somewhere in the great unknown. Now scientists and researchers are stumped. Only left to speculate, with little data, what the cosmic visitor is as it gets further and further from view.

This lecture concerning Oumuamua will be lead by Avi Loeb, Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science, at Harvard University. Avi is the head of the Galileo Project, founding director of Harvard University’ 'Black Hole Initiative', director of the Institute for Theory and Computation at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and the former chair of the astronomy department at Harvard University (2011–2020). Avi chairs the advisory board for the Breakthrough Starshot project, and is a former member of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology and a former chair of the Board on Physics and Astronomy of the National Academies.

Avi had been the longest serving Chair of Harvard Department of Astronomy and the Founding
Director of Harvard’s Black Hole Initiative. He is an elected fellow of the American Academy of
Arts &Sciences, the American Physical Society, and the International Academy of Astronautics.
Loeb is a former member of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology
(PCAST) at the White House, a former chair of the Board on Physics and Astronomy of the
National Academies, opics, including black holes, the first stars, the search for extraterrestrial
life and the future of the Universe. Loeb is the Director of the Institute for Theory and
Computation within the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and also serves as the
Head of the Galileo Project. In 2012, TIME magazine selected Loeb as one

and your loved ones. This can make it easier to make decisions when the time comes.
Join the conversation to gather the toolkit!

Virtual : Writing as a Gift

As the holidays approach, it is the perfect time to ignite your creativity and put it to good use, weaving a wonderful gift of beautiful words, with the intention of gifting it others in your life who will appreciate it. For words have tremendous power—they can be used to heal, inspire, empower, encourage, entertain, amuse, delight, enlighten affirm, create deeper understanding, and to offer loving kindness and compassion. So why not consciously choose to use our power to write, with the intention of offering our words as a gift to others?  When you do so, you may brighten someone’s day …. or perhaps even help change the direction of their life….

You will be encouraged to consider getting started writing any of the following:

  • A short bit of memoir/true-to-life story about someone who has had a positive influence on your life, and who you wish to acknowledge.  (And if they are no longer alive, you can then offer this written story/testament to others in their circle of family and friends who may appreciate gaining a deeper insight into this person’s life and character).
  •  A brief poem, in the form of a tribute to a special person, event, or place.
  • A beautiful letter of encouragement, empathy, or appreciation --- perhaps to help inspire someone in your life who is enduring a hard time and needs some extra encouragement, or to someone who has been of great help to you – perhaps in a troubled time of your own -- and who you can now offer words of deepest appreciation to.

Led by Caroline Joy Adams, M.Ed., who has lead writing workshops in numerous locations nationwide including  Maui, HI,  Boston, Cape Cod, and Vineyard Haven, MA, Newport, RI,  Big Bear Lake, CA, and has been a college writing professor for many years. She is also the author of seven books including The Power to Write: Seven Keys to Discover Your Writer Within.

Virtual : Advance Care Planning with Healthy Aging MV

Sharing your wishes for end-of-life care can bring you closer to the people you love. It’s critically important.

We know that no guide and no single conversation can cover all the decisions that you and your family
may face. What a conversation can do is provide a shared understanding of what matters most to you
and your loved ones. This can make it easier to make decisions when the time comes.
Join the conversation to gather the toolkit!

Register in advance for this meeting:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
