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.

Robert Bruey & Ruthann Baler
Singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist Robert Bruey grew up in rural New England and lives on Long Island's North Fork. His roots and how they have helped to shape him are reflected in the original music on his recently released CD, 'Carousel'.. Robert Bruey's music is honest and real, raw and meaningful, gritty and naturalistic. His deft, spare and unique finger-picking style -- with notes carefully left alone to be heard in the moment -- provides a perfect complement for his earthy and soulful voice and the meaningful, introspective lyrics of his songs. As a musical artist, he paints with words -- imbuing his songs with imagery that enables listeners to visualize his stories as he sings them. Although he cites such diverse artists as Dave Matthews, Van Morrison, Waylon Jennings, Jackson Browne and Damien Rice as influences, Robert Bruey is his own muse blazing his own musical path one that should lead him into listening rooms and living rooms far and wide. Robert's live performances are moving and intimate. They leave his listeners knowing that he has shared his deepest emotions with them. More information appears at www.robertbruey.com as well as songs, videos and some great photography!

In our new moms groups, each week you’ll share experiences, engage in parenting discussions, gather valuable resources, and ask your parenting questions on order to make this time of major transition smoother, saner, easier and more enjoyable! After these warm, informative, and friendly sessions, you’ll be fully connected to a great group of other trusted moms and feel empowered with essential skills such as dealing with sleep deprivation, feeding strategies, developmental milestones & balancing life's demands. Mommybites' support groups are led by facilitators who will guide you to embrace your new role & identity as a mom with more confidence, compassion and humor. -When: Six Fridays 9/11 - 10/16 -Time: 9:30-10:45am -Where: Dance Place, Arlington -Fee: $170 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 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.

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.

Sexual Enlightement - A One-Man Show BOSTON
Chicago actor, musician and stand-up comedian, Freddy Zental offers a provocative, progressive one-man show for one night only at the Arlington Center for the Arts in Arlington, MA, on October 2nd. The show of “One Man’s Journey to Sexual Enlightenment” offers insight into today’s myths of the sexual experience and is all at once entertaining, humorous, bold and enlightening. Notes artist and playwright Zental: “While I offer a personal account of my journey in this multimedia show, this is also every person’s journey.” In this performance, Zental, takes his audience on a truly entertaining and often hilarious exploration of his life experiences concerning intimacy, sex and love. The play is packed with storytelling, drumming, standup comedy, singing and movement. All are used in service of demystifying those intimate, personal impacting moments that so often go unexamined or trivialized. It’s been called the male counter stage performance to Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues.” As Zental’s personal story unfolds the audience is reminded, “As you listen to my story, think about your own.” The show is a playful invitation for us all to get in touch with old feelings and fixed ways of being that might be in the way of our dreams and passions. Zental intentionally created the play as an introduction to sexual enlightenment or sex consciousness inspired by ancient Eastern traditions and insights that allow for cultivating creativity and joy in our lives. This play is debuting at a Boston area stage at the Arlington Center for the Arts as part of Zental's Fall/Winter 2015 US tour with further performances in Austin, TX, Minneapolis, MN and Chicago. Play: “Sexual Enlightenment – A One-Man Show” Place: Arlington Center for the Arts, 41 Foster Street, Arlington, MA 02474 Time: 8:00pm performance Tickets: $25 in advance / $35 at the door.

Tips, Tools, and Tricks of Freelance Editing
Hello dear members, friends, and collegues!   It was delightful to see those of you who came out for the networking event at Trident. We are thrilled to invite you to an interactive discussion on improving our editing.    Tips, Tools, and Tricks of Freelance Editing.  Please joing us on Thursday, October 15, 6:30 - 8:30 pm, at Robbins Library (the Public Library of Arlington), 700 Massachusetts Avenue. Go down the stairs (or elevator) and follow the red squares on the floor to the community room.   The large panel includes YOU! Please bring you favorite editing or freelance tip, tool, or trick! Think for a moment about a tip, tool, or trick that has made your life as an editor or a freelancer better or more successful.   "Tip" can mean: a wise piece of advice you received from a business attorney, accountant, or marketing expert a tip you learned through experience such as, "I discovered that billing by the hour rather than billing by the project (or vice versa) was better for me because. . . ." a recommendation for a great graphic designer "Tool" can mean: something physical such as a reference book, an exercise ball used as a desk chair, double computer screens something electronic such as a website or blog with great advice, editing software, a calendar or scheduler some kind of organization or relationship such as a coffee house that is friendly toward freelancers, an informal friendship with another freelancer, an editing or freelance professional organization "Trick" can mean an unusual, unexpected, or completely odd thing that you've discovered that helps your business (or life), such as: "I took a productivity test and discovered that I'm most productive from 4 pm to midnight, so I've rearranged my work schedule accordingly."  "When I'm at a frustrating point in an editing project and I want to do anything other than edit, that's when I clean the bathroom or do laundry. Win/win!"  "Last year I was talked into an editing project that really isn't my specialty, but I found that I work really well with this author and we've even become good friends." If possible, bring the item with you or at least bring a picture of it (for us visual learners) and be prepared to spend a few minutes describing it to the group. Then, join us in November for Life Coaching: Transforming Consciousness  with Monique Buchanan.

MEMPHIS NIGHTS - Andy Cohen & Robin O'Herin
SPECIAL: Purchase 4 or more tickets at least 2 weeks in advance and get one FREE ticket at the door! =========================================================== From Rev. Gary Davis Ragtime to country blues, Andy Cohen has mastered material from before the 1920's to about the 1950's, and ranging over the several states to which Memphis is adjacent. He came of age during the 1960's revival in Massachusetts, but he's a Southern boy at heart. Andy made a point of acquainting himself with all the blues players he could, on record and in person. In his shows, he performs material by Rev. Davis, John Hurt, Big Bill, Gus Cannon, Frank Stokes, Memphis Minnie, Bukka White, Barbecue Bob, Charlie Patton, Ted Bogan, Henry Spaulding, or any of a hundred other blues people. Andy Cohen grew up in a house with a piano and a lot of Dixieland Jazz records, amplified after a while by a cornet that his dad got him. At about fifteen, he got bitten by the folk music bug, and soon got to hear records by Big Bill Broonzy and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, both of which reminded him of the music he grew up to. At 16, he saw Rev. Gary Davis, and his course was set. He knew he had it in him to follow, study, perform and promote the music of the southeast quadrant, Americas great musical fountainhead. Although he's done other things-a certain amount of writing, and physical labor from dishwashing and railroading to archaeology, playing the old tunes is what he does best. Robin O'Herin is a Berkshire-based, touring blues and gospel musician, specializing in historically rich, often interactive concerts that feature original and traditional Delta blues and gospel, for small listening rooms, festivals, libraries and schools. Her instruments are bottleneck and fingerstyle guitar, ukelele and mountain dulcimer. Her concerts are warm, affirming experiences which she shares with the audience. Let her take you on a journey of musical exploration through the Delta and Piedmont regions of the South. Song selections may include Robert Johnson, Blind Willie Johnson and Robin's own original blues and fingerstyle ballads. Robin has shared stages with the likes of Paul Geremia, Andy Cohen and Roy Bookbinder. She is currently working on a new gospel CD and then hopes to jump right into a new blues and original CD. She teaches beginning delta and piedmont blues guitar and songwriting and partners with raisingtheblues.org and guitarsintheclassroom.org to bring the power of music into the classroom and hospitals to reach children and teachers in new and innovative ways.
