About Arlington
map
Arlington, MA local information about the Town of Arlington and the local businesses and events. Arlington Massachusetts was founded over 350 years ago and remains proud of its history throughout its growth into a modern community. Arlington is the birthplace of Uncle Sam and the location of the first children's library.

Arlington has preserved many of its historical buildings and its town common which was the site of most of the fighting when the British marched through as they returned from the Old North Bridge at the beginning of the Revolutionary War.

Arlington was once a thriving mill and agricultural town but now hosts commercial development centers. Its access to Metropolitan Boston has made it a very desirable place to live and its diverse population has demanded good schools and recreation facilities which together have made Arlington very attractive to families.

Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor and Founder of Seedlings: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting. 

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.


What Mommybites Moms are Saying:

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC...

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

Honky Tonk Masquerade
A Little Bit of Austin, from Boston Honky Tonk Masquerade serves up a dance-inducing gumbo of classic twangy country, hot western swing and, of course, time-tested honky-tonk favorites. The band's five members each bring decades of experience playing American roots music to the band, and it shows in their skilled musicianship and engaging performances. At the musical center of Honky Tonk Masquerade are the voices of Susanne Salem-Schatz and Martin Grosswendt. Both exceptional singers in their own right, their duets and harmony singing are truly special technically precise, musically inventive, and emotionally compelling. Add Martin's inspired guitar work, Art Schatz's masterful fiddling, Kathy Burkly's powerful drumming, and Michael Harrist's groove-making upright bass playing, and you have the ingredients for a recipe that is guaranteed to please, whether you're sipping your beer to sad country songs or have your boots out on the dance floor, The band takes its name from the song by legendary Texas singer-songwriter Joe Ely, a clear indication of the love and respect these musicians feel for the material they perform. This isn't tongue-in cheek country; it's the real thing. At the same time, Honky Tonk Masquerade isn't merely a cover band; its members bring their own sensibilities, skills and experiences to the table to create fresh, exciting settings for great songs, familiar and obscure. They take the best songs, old and new, and infuse them with energy, originality and joy. You can see that joy when they play; it's contagious, and it's one of the reasons Honky Tonk Masquerade is rapidly developing a loyal following. So come on out and enjoy Honky Tonk Masquerade, and be prepared to hear selections from names such as Ray Price, Patsy Cline, Bob Wills, Wanda Jackson, George Jones, Guy Clark, James Hand, and many others, played and sung the way they were meant to be, with commitment and style and be ready to dance!

Lori Diamond & Fred Abatelli - Folk Acoustic
Celebrating a new album, "Lightning" Bostonian Lori Diamond and New Yorker Fred Abatelli, have been creating and performing music together in New England since their "destined" meeting on Myspace in 2007. Lori, an award winning songwriter (finalist, Great American Songwriting Contest 2010, Best Female Vocalist, Pulse Magazine 2011, 2012), combines alluring, soulful vocals and seasoned piano playing that are a perfect match for Fred's solid finger work and clever phrasing on both bass and guitar. Fans of Norah Jones, Sarah MacLachlan and Joni Mitchell, quickly become fans of Lori & Fred as they explore Jazz, Acoustic, Folk, Pop, Gospel and blues influences and gently infuse them in a flavorful Adult Contemporary style that's all their own. Lori & Fred's latest collection of original songs,"TRUE", was powerfully released to a packed house in October 2011 at the Wachusett Music Series in MA. Like their other CDs, "Bound" and "Mystery", "TRUE" is receiving endless praise from their audiences, peers and industry professionals alike. Most notably, "True" was awarded "BEST CD" for 2012 in Pulse Magazine's Worcester Music Awards. Lori also landed the award for "BEST FEMALE VOCALIST" on the same night for the second year running. July 2011 showcased the dynamic duo on the main stage of the legendary, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and in August, they were headliners at the Wachusett Valley Folk Festival along with David Wilcox, Mary Gauthier and Madison Violet. Topping off their ground-breaking 2011, they performed BOTH First Night Boston, and First Night Worcester, only to be invited back to do it again in 2012. These prestigious opportunities have inspired Lori and Fred more than ever to connect with audiences far and wide. Peter Yarrow, Joan Osborne, Susan Werner, Tracy Grammer, Jimmy LaFave, DALA, David Roth, John Gorka, Ellis Paul, Gretchen Peters, Natalia Zukerman and Mustard's Retreat are just a few of the national acts these rapidly ascending musicians will have shared the stage within 2011-2013. At any given time, you'll find Lori & Fred at intimate coffeehouses, house concerts and various festivals and benefits throughout the year. They are clearly on the rise and have nowhere to go but up! Visit www.loridiamond.net for a full schedule of performances, or find them on Facebook. Seek them out - you'll be glad you did.

Esther Friedman: My Five Years in a Cult: Take 2
Our sold out audience last spring was riveted when Esther shared Part 1 of her story; in fact, we ran over time and had to leave some audience questions unanswered. It felt to me like the room could have talked with her for hours. Friday November 7, Esther is back to continue her compelling story, this time integrated with songs, reflections, and a legal update from one of the largest law firms in the world which assisted her pro bono since we last saw her. Get your tickets NOW. For those of you who may not know, Esther is a professional singer-songwriter, and is now integrating songs from this period into her presentation- a kind of "soundtrack" to the whole experience. Last year's audience had a number of questions and we didn't have time to address them all; therefore, Esther and I have planned a Q & A format that will allow us to stay focused and respond to more audience inquiries. And I promise this time will be as compelling as last if not even more so. [NOTE ABOUT FORMAT: 7pm potluck- bring something to eat; hostess provides beer and wine. The "cocktail potluck" hour is super fun. Esther will begin her presentation at 8pm sharp]. Proceeds go to a human rights music project. You can learn more here: http://www.gofundme.com/ertzso Below is an excerpt from Esther's upcoming presentation "I often think to myself that I must be crazy; why else would I make this confession public. I am compelled to share it, so I do. I guess I do so out of the need to understand this phenomenon called "cults"; how intelligent people get sucked in, why they stay, how cults work, how an ideological and converting group can insidiously endanger society. At the ripe age of 40, I was sucked into a "discussion" group that turned out to be a cult. I want to dispel some myths, to educate and to expose deceptive practices. I feel compelled to shed light and liberate my classmates. I feel compelled to warn that this secretive group is out recruiting new inductees on Boston-area college campuses, coffeeshops, grocery stores, bars, libraries. The more people who are aware and talking about it, the more exposed they will be, and less able to rope people in with its 'clever insincerity'. " When most people think of cults, they envision the Hare Krishnas dancing in robes and selling flowers at the airport. Those of us who are a wee bit older, recall Charles Manson, the grisly murder of Sharon Tate (inspired, Manson claims, by the Beatles song Helter Skelter). Who can forget the Branch Dividians, Jim Jones of "drank the Kool Aid" fame, Heaven's Gate, or creepy Warren Jeffs and his YFZ ranch. My cultic experiences don't echo these extreme events; it was more insidious, more deceptive and alluring..."

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our moms groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 10 weeks of fun & resources (vs 10 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many moms.
