Mr. Jon Clements

Then, we will go outdoors and actually plant the orchard from start to finish including site preparation, fertilization, pruning, and tree support. Viola! Instant orchard.  There will be a break for participants to enjoy a BYO lunch. Fee $85. Register and pay online at UMassGarden.com or call 413 545-2254

imagesChances are, whether you’ve known Steve Sinopoli for years, or have just met him – he will ask you for money.   “I just had Lasik surgery, I sent (the doctor) a note and he sent me $100 bucks!”

The money isn’t for Steve, but rather The National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Steve’s sister Sharon was diagnosed with MS twenty-four years ago. He was at work when she called him with the news. “I remember having to shut my door because I was crying.”

His tears have turned to fundraising – fearless fundraising. Steve, 54, who was born and raised in Cohasett, sends out about 400 snail mail letters and 1500 appeals via social media soliciting donations for his one-man team in Walk MS Cohasett.

His motto: “You can’t say no, unless I ask you.”

WHO: Hundreds of people with MS, their friends, family and volunteers
WHAT: Walk MS 2014 
WHERE: South Shore Community Center, Three North Main St. Start time 10:00am
WHEN: Saturday, May 3, 2014
WHY: Every connection counts

Join us for the annual Walk MS Cohasett, presented by Biogen Idec. It’s a fun, 6-mile spring walk to raise money to help create a world free of MS.  Individuals as well as more nearly 30 spirited teams will participate.

MS (multiple sclerosis) interrupts the flow of information between the brain and body and can stop people from moving forward in their lives.  It is typically diagnosed between ages 20 and 50, but teenagers and even young children can have the disease. Nearly 12,000 individuals and families are affected by MS in Massachusetts alone.

Connect and become more powerful than multiple sclerosis.  Walk MS Cohasett.  Sign up at “walkMSgne.org

The Choral Art Society of the South Shore, now in its 55th season, will present its Spring concert, “Broadway Meets Opera: Hit Tunes from the Great White Way to the Met!” at 4pm, on Sunday, May 4, 2014, at the House of Prayer Lutheran Church, 916 Main St., Hingham, MA.
On the program are songs, arias, duets, and choruses from Broadway hits and Operas such as Wicked, Promises, Promises, Oklahoma!, Anything Goes, The Pirates of Penzance, La Traviata, Carmen, and more.  They range from sublime to ridiculous, from silly to sentimental.  You will be entertained!  Danica A. Buckley is the Artistic Director and Conductor.  Sarah Haera Tocco is the accompanist. Joining us will be a string quartet, bass, and percussion.
The guest soloists are all young professional opera singers with careers in Boston and beyond.  Amal Al Sharif, soprano, Oriana Dunlop, mezzo soprano, Adrian Jones, tenor, and Colin Levin, baritone, will amuse, delight, and impress with songs and arias from Sigmund Romberg to Cole Porter, to Bizet.  Several chorus members will also present solos and duets from musicals and operettas.  Robin Flint and Geof Smith of Hull, Barbara Baumgarten of Cohasset, Paul Frazer of Kingston, and Nicole DeGennaro of Hanover, as well as several others representing all the towns on the South Shore will offer their talents.
 Proceeds from each concert help fund our scholarship, awarded each year to a high school senior from the South Shore who is going to college to major in music.  In other community service, we also provide outreach singing to nursing homes and hospitals.
Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for seniors and students. Tickets may be purchased on our website, from chorus members, or at Buttonwood Books in Cohasset, Front Street Bookshop in Scituate, The Sunshine Pet Parlor in Hull, or at the door.
Get your tickets soon!  We always fill the church.
