SAVE THE DATES Wednesday Evening Summer Programming at the ACL

The ACL is once again planning expanded programming in the summer on many Wednesday evenings.  The pace is easier, the evenings are lovely for a summer stroll to visit us, and we enjoy hosting these special events to see our friends and neighbors.

More details forthcoming, but for now here’s what we’ve got in the works thus far:

PJ Storytime & Stuffed Animal Sleepover – Wednesday, July 11th – 7 pm
Wear your PJ’s and bring your favorite stuffed animal.  After the stories are over, your stuffed animal will get to spend the night with the giant Curious George! 

Summer Movie Night ’18 – Wednesday, July 18th – 7 pm

It’s like having the SuperLuxe right here in the ‘Dale. Come see the movie critics raved was a “masterful superhero drama”. Black Panther (rated PG-13) will be shown Wednesday July 18 at 7 pm at the ACL, on our big screen. Light nut-free refreshments will be served.

 

 

Dancing in the Parks Outdoor Concert – Wednesday, July 25 – 6:30 – 8 pm
The six piece band plays R&B, New Orleans, Swing, Blues, Boogie Woodie, Ska, and Country.  With songs from Stevie Wonder, Santana, Robert Cray, Louis Jordan, Etta James, James Brown, Ray Charles, and more.

Stay tuned for full details and more events to celebrate the summer season at the ACL.

 

Wednesday, June 27th at 7pm: Nature Crafts at the ACL

Everyone’s favorite community art & craft project in the 02466!  Decorate our garden with a community arts and crafts project.  For the past few summers our garden has been adorned with whimsical sculptures created by our friends and neighbors.  
We hope you will join us!  This is not just for the kids, folks…grownups love this project, too.

 

Do You Like To Garden?

We’re always looking for an extra set of hands to assist our ACL gardeners Alla and Liz.  The current tasks at hand are removing bulbs and planting flowers.  If you are available to assist, please contact Alla at allawebster@gmail.com.

Help us keep our front circle garden looking great all season

We are truly touched by our ACL community’s generosity.  Thank you so very much!

New Art at the ACL: Henri Rousseau Mixed Media Jungles

Williams Elementary School first graders looked at the art of Henri Rousseau and created mixed media jungles.  This art will be on display throughout the summer.  Please visit the installation during our regular hours and leave comments for our artists.

Our “Artful Piano” Has Arrived

Welcome home to our fantastic Newton Community Pride Artful Piano entitled “Completely Blanketed”. This piano was created by many Newton Needlers under the crafty direction of Paula Gannon and village life phenom Maria Arvelo.

We’re always looking for helpers to assist Breadsong Bakery care for the piano each day by covering and uncovering it with the tarp and bungee cords. Would you be willing to take a shift sometime over the month of May? Please contact Dana at danakhanson@gmail.com to sign up for a day that works for you.
