PACK 1 CUB SCOUTS ENJOY THE HOLIDAY SEASON

(December 28, 2017)  The boys of Pack 1 Rehoboth have been in the holiday spirit during December, starting with carol singing at Attleboro Life Center where the residents enjoyed their sweet-sounding entertainment. 

    Each month, the pack chooses a local organization to support. During December, Cub Scout families donated a large amount of gently-used books to the Blanding Public Library. They also came together to wrap Blizzard of Giving gifts for the annual community holiday giving program.  Each den wrapped their gifts before loading them up to bring some merriment to local families.  Cubs concluded the night with fun Christmas activities including ornament making and gingerbread decorating.

    Although Santa was in the peak of his busy season, he was kind enough to stop by Pack 1 where he met with all the Cubs providing each (siblings as well) with their very own Pinewood Derby car kit.

     Pack 1 wants to wish everyone a happy and safe new year, and also invite you to their January fundraiser - a spaghetti dinner and bingo night on Friday, January 26 from 6 to 8 PM at Rehoboth Congregational Church.  For ticket information, please email Alexandra.fiore1@gmail.com or visit the Pack’s Facebook page.

 
REHOBOTH MINUTEMEN BEING ANOTHER BUSY YEAR

(January 4, 2018) The Rehoboth Minute Company, 13th Continental Regiment, commonly known as the Rehoboth Minutemen, begin another busy year of activities. 

    Since 1993, the historic re-enactors have participated in parades, ceremonies, encampments, battle re-enactments and educational events. Members portray the original 1774 unit in civilian dress, accoutrements and firearms.  Individuals and families participate as musket men, drummers, fifers, and camp followers.

    As a non-profit, educational organization, the group is always looking for new members of all ages, particularly this year as Rehoboth celebrates its 375 anniversary.  The company retains memberships in the following historic re-enactment groups: Continental Line, The Burning of the Valleys Military Association, Inc., The Living History Association and the Commanders Round Table.

    Anyone interested in learning more should attend the next meeting at Palmer River Elementary School on Tuesday, January 16 at 7 PM.  Inside drills are planned at Goff Memorial Hall on Tuesday, January 30, Tuesday, February 27 and Tuesday, March 27.

    New officers will command the field this year including Captain Eric Duquette, Lt. Eric Trevail, and Ensign Glen Dady.  The group’s governing board includes President John Carr, Vice President Cathy Potter, and Secretary Martin Eastly.

    Minute Company members are scheduled to gather on January 13 at the Durfee Lafayette House in Fall River.  Other winter events include a sewing bee for new members to make colonial clothing, and a musket cartridge rolling night. Additionally, a committee has been formed to organize a historic Time Line event on September 22 at Nike Field as part of the town-wide 375 Celebration. 

The group will participate in their first parade of 2018 on Saturday, March 3 in Pawtucket, Rhode Island for that city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.  For more information, visit 13thContinentalRegiment.com.

(January 18, 2018) The Rehoboth Antiquarian Society’s Arts in the Village Concert Series will present a performance by the highly regarded Boston Trio on Saturday, February 24 at Goff Memorial Hall. This concert is supported in part by BayCoast Bank and by a grant form the Rehoboth Cultural Council, the local affiliate of the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

    Since their formation in 1997, the Boston Trio has become one of today’s most exciting chamber ensembles. Acclaimed for their superb sense of ensemble and wondrous balance, these virtuosic musicians are committed to creating exceptional and daring performances of standard and contemporary repertoire.  This concert will feature works for piano trio written largely before the nineteenth century. Violinist Irina Muresanu, cellist Jonah Ellsworth, and pianist Heng-Jin Park each have distinguished careers as soloists, recitalists, and chamber musicians and have appeared with major orchestras and at premier chamber music festivals throughout the United States and Europe.

    Ellsworth has performed as soloist with the Boston Symphony, Akron Symphony, Boston Philharmonic, Jacksonville Symphony, and New Bedford Symphony. Muresanu, who has appeared as soloist with the Boston Philharmonic, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, and other top international orchestras, is the recipient of top prizes at the Montreal International Competition and the Queen Elizabeth Violin Competition. Park, who made her solo debut with the Boston Pops at the age of 15, is the founding member of the Boston Trio and founder and artistic director of the Halcyon Music Festival.

    Highlights from the group’s 2017-2018 season include a second performance at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall and tours from California to upstate New York. Recent appearances include concerts at UCLA, Detroit ProMusica, Maui Classical Music Festival, Rockport Chamber Music Festival, and performances of Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Boston Philharmonic.

   The Trio has coached chamber music at the Tanglewood Institute of Music, has served as Ensemble-in-Residence at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and has been in residence at the New England Conservatory Preparatory School. The individual members serve on the faculties of the New England Conservatory, the Boston Conservatory, Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and are in demand as master class teachers throughout the United States, Asia, and Europe.

(January 26, 2018) Rehoboth Boy Scout troops have been busy so far this new year. Captain Ken Marcotrigiano of the Rehoboth Fire Department recently provided a first aid and CPR certification class to help local Webelos meet requirements to earn their First Responder badge. The Scouts had a great night learning hands-on safety and first aid skills.

   Team Snow Leopards represented Pack 1 Rehoboth in the 2018 Klondike Derby. The boys and the families did a great job making all aluminum sleds that will last years, maybe even decades. The boys pulled the sleds around for six hours with no complaints, only smiles.

    Pack 1 Rehoboth Cub Scouts would like to thank the community for supporting their January pasta dinner and bingo night event.

     Volunteers are asked to cook a meal for 1 adult and four children to be delivered between 5 and 5:30 PM to the family.  Due to her illness, Kelly herself in unable to eat normally.  There are no special diet restrictions for the rest of the family.

LEARN HOW TO BE MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT: REHOBOTH GARDEN CLUB OFFERS SPECIAL INFO SESSION

(February 19,
shapeimage_23_link_0
2018) As a civic contribution to Rehoboth's 375th Anniversary, the Rehoboth Garden Club is inviting residents to attend a free, 30-minute informational presentation about money and energy saving home improvements on Monday, March 5 at 1 PM in Goff Memorial Hall, 124 Bay State Road in Rehoboth.

    Since the mid 1970s electricity bills have included small fees that go into a fund called Mass Save. Mass Save, in turn, contracts out to several companies that offer electric customers free or substantially subsidized goods and services.

    A representative from Homeworks Energy, a company that provides services in Rehoboth, will talk about free home energy audits through Mass Save. They will replace your home's light bulbs and thermostats with the most efficient ones, at no charge.  Attendees who would like to speak with a representative or schedule an energy audit will be able to do so after the 30-minute presentation.  

     “There are no hidden fees, gimmicks or strings attached,” said Linda McHugh of the Garden Club.  “This is truly a valuable opportunity that our club is proud to share with our community.”  There is no charge to attend, but a food item contribution for the Rehoboth Food Pantry would be greatly appreciated. For more information call Linda McHugh at 508-252-9768.

Born in Rehoboth in 1757, Daniel Read (portrait left) earned his living composing, publishing, and selling his music and running a general store after moving to New Haven, and the evening will include the tune he named for his native town.

Cubs Scouts had an awesome time on a recent visit to USS Salem. The kids learned about the so many things from the weapons used in battle, how the ship ran on steam, cold water survival, and even how to use a rotary phone.

Buckles the Bunny arrives at the Gladys L. Hurrell Senior Center on March 24 for a delicious Spring Breakfast and hunt for 375 Easter eggs. Local children enjoyed meeting Buckles and local public safety personnel and Bristol County K-9 police unit.

    The event was organized by Rehoboth TRIAD and the Rehoboth 375 Anniversary Committee. Along with a delicious breakfast, children had photos taken with Buckles and scrambled outdoors to find plastic eggs filled with stamps, temporary tattoos, bracelets and seasonal stickers, plus some ‘special’ eggs good for 375 tee-shirts.
