FIVE THINGS TO KNOW TODAY 3/22: Eat Out to Support Japan Relief, Congrats to Teachers of the Year and More
Gargoyles is making it easy for diners to support disaster relief in Japan, teachers of the year are named, and more.
Rolling Into Spring
OK, so it snowed yesterday, but it’s still spring, and to get you in the mood we have a full week of bicycle-related stories. Check out today’s profile and video of Somerville filmmaker Bob Nesson, who defies gravity—and the allure of a production van—by transporting all his film gear to shoots by bike. Tomorrow, see a video about artist Doug Moore, who built the cleverly designed bike trailer Nesson uses. Then tune in for more two-wheeled news Thursday and Friday.
Congratulations to Teachers and Paraprofessionals of the Year
The Somerville Teachers Association has named this year’s deserving educators. Congratulations to Teachers of the Year Roxane Scrima of the Kennedy School and Anne Sutherland of the Healey School. Congratulations to Paraprofessionals of the Year Nicole Pilla of Winter Hill Community School and Sandra Kemp of the Healey School.
Tokyo Tuesdays at Gargoyles to Benefit Japan Disaster Relief
Stop by Gargoyles for their specialty Japanese bento box on Tuesday nights today through April 26 and the proceeds will go to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. This is the rare good deed that comes with a trio of sake. Restaurant info here.
Call for Musicians for Third Annual Joe’s Jazz and Blues Fest
The Somerville Arts Council “is looking for exceptional talent--everything from rock hard blues to Latin jazz” to perform at the annual Joe’s Jazz and Blues Fest. If this sounds like you and you long to jam away midsummer at this outdoor festival, be sure to apply by March 26. Details here.
New Moms Support Group Meets Tuesdays
New parents of babies (up to one year old) are invited to a free, weekly drop-in support group at B’nai Brith Temple on Central Ave. On Tuesdays (11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.), meet other parents and babes (of the infant variety) to chat, play and build what could be lasting friendships and a support network. All faiths welcome. Details here.
