Presentation on George Oberteuffer
Friday May 29, 2015
7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
A Presentation on Impressionist Painter George Oberteuffer

Tuileries, Paris, by George Oberteuffer

In a presentation based on his newly published book Impressionist George Oberteuffer - His Life and Work in Europe and America, John Oberteuffer will talk about his grandfather's life with slides of his work and photographs of his life.

In June 1905 George Oberteuffer left the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts for the summer to travel and paint in Europe. He decided to stay and returned to the United States 15 years later with his French wife, also an artist, and their two children. Living in Paris during that time, he painted many cityscapes and was active in the community of American artists. In the summers, the family sojourned in the countryside and on the coasts of Normandy and Brittany to paint. During the First World War, George Oberteuffer served in the Red Cross in Paris. In 1919 he returned with his family to the United States and continued his career teaching, painting, and exhibiting in Chicago, New York, and New England. In 1938 he was elected to the National Academy of Design.

Pay2Play
Wednesday June 3, 2015
6:00 PM until 9:00 PM

Common Cause Massachusetts and the League of Women Voters of Lexington will co-sponsor Pay 2 Play, a documentary about the influence of big money in politics, on Wednesday, June 3, at the Cary Memorial Library in Lexington. Admission is free and the public is encouraged to attend.

The US Supreme Court's Citizens United decision in 2010 permitted the formation of Super PACs (Political Action Committees) and other groups that can raise and spend unlimited dollars on the political campaigns of people who are likely to make decisions that would benefit the group's interests. The result is a "pay-to-play system" that ties the rich, lobbyists, and politicians ever closer together. Using the game of Monopoly, the film shows that this is the spirit of Monopoly, where the player with the most money wins. The movie also includes comments from, among others, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig, and Historian Noam Chomsky.

Pay 2 Play will point out specific ways you can help change the status quo and, following the movie, Pam Wilmot, Executive Director of Common Cause Massachusetts, will lead a discussion about various campaigns to take democracy back from these groups.

The program will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room on the lower level of the Cary Memorial Library at 1874 Massachusetts Avenue. All League forums are open to the public at no charge. You can pre-register at http://www.commoncause.org/states/massachusetts/events/pay-2-play-lexington.html Please email questions to EKashdan@CommonCause.org.

Practice is Priceless: A OneSingleThing Dating & Relationship Event. May 30th 2015 - Lexington, MA
Dating is Broken! Have you noticed? Speed dating, online dating, blind dates set up by well-meaning friends have you tried them all, yet you're still single and frustrated with the seeming lack of options? Well, you're not alone. It has been statistically demonstrated, year after year, that the majority of men and women are having a lousy time and are getting poor results in their dating lives. Many relationships, once established, dont last due to a faulty foundation. OneSingleThing was created to be an environment in which men and women can have a great time learning how to succeed in dating and relationships, while also building community and growing themselves. We do this by creating dynamic events where men and women are invited to explore, learn, and practice ways to engage in dating and relationships that create results they truly want. On the evening of Saturday May 30th, OneSingleThing will present Practice is Priceless, a three-hour singles event for men and women who are tired of online dating, speed dating, and relying on random chance to meet Mr. or Ms. Right. The purpose of this event is to slow down and bring enjoyment to the process of exploring, discovering, and realizing your best experience of dating, courtship, and relationship. OneSingleThing events are based on the idea that dating is one of the most important areas of life; one that is often approached hastily and without much forethought or education, and one which ought to be thoroughly enjoyed! Through group and partnered games, mixer activities, and discussion, we will explore these topics and more: ~ The Practice Effect: We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle ~ Dating as job interview: how to make sure you're hiring well ~ How to end a date or relationship with minimal damage Event Details: Date: Saturday May 30th, 2015 Time: 7:00 PM 10:00 PM. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Where: First Parish-Unitarian Church, 7 Harrington Rd, Lexington MA 02420 Cost: (Discounted from $35 to) $20 per person for this event only. Audience: All are welcome. A gender balanced audience primarily consisting of single women and single men who are seeking heterosexual mid-term to long term relationships or marriage. All individuals are welcome regardless of their current relationship status, sexual orientation, or age. As one of the purposes of this event is to provide a singles environment, each events audience is curated, and each event has a maximum number of participants, so we encourage early registration. Register here at this site to secure your participation. Email us with any questions at registration@onesinglething.com Visit us and read our blog at www.onesinglething.com. !!! ATTENTION All Personal Growth Enthusiasts!! Earlier this same day, at the same location, there is a marvelous fair open to the public : Power Up Your Life Expo. There will be dozens of personal growth and wellness organizations and leaders giving 30 minute and 60 minute workshops, great food samples, dance and movement sessions, and a wonderful gathering of fun, interesting people.

The Great Outdoors
Sunday May 31, 2015
3:00 PM until 5:00 PM

Come hear the Charles River Wind Ensemble in concert as we celebrate The Great Outdoors! Our penultimate performance of the season features music inspired by natures many facets. Director Corey Seapy will lead the group in an exciting program.

Aaron Coplands music is often described as sounding open, and his Outdoor Overture that begins our program is no exception. It is an invigorating work full of characteristically tuneful melodies and vibrant ensemble interaction. October is a lush piece by Eric Whitacre, whose inspiration to write it came from autumns crisp air and quiet beauty. Our first half concludes with a nuanced masterwork by Warren Benson: The Leaves Are Falling. Benson began composing this patient and emotionally charged work on November 22, 1963, the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Its title comes from the poem Autumn by Rainer Maria Rilke.

The second half of our program kicks off with Anthony Iannaccones two-part tone poem, After a Gentle Rain. It is a deftly orchestrated work that evokes images of glistening raindrops and the joyful energy thats perceptible once the showers have ceased. Michael Markowski, an up-and-coming composer from New York City, reflects on courage in his recent work entitled City Trees. This is music drawn from a beautiful allegory: to grow tall and strong out of a tiny patch of earth amidst a busy concrete jungle certainly demands bravery! Our concert concludes with Dan Welchers Zion, a tour-de-force that sets two contrasting hymn tunes in a manner that evokes the power and grandeur of Utahs Zion National Park.

Were looking forward to performing for you for free on May 31st! We sincerely hope you can join us.

Pay 2 Play Film Screening
Wednesday June 3, 2015
6:00 PM until 8:00 PM

Common Cause Massachusetts and the League of Women Voters of Lexington are excited to invite you to a FREE screening of the excellent documentary Pay 2 Play! This film documents the quest of John Ennis to find a way out from under the American Pay 2 Play System, where politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury -- through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation. Along the way, Ennis journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make. PAY 2 PLAY: Democracys High Stakes is the laymans guidebook to taking back our democracy.
