John Clark & Henry ‘Thins’ Francishttp://southgateatshrewsbury.com/event/john-clark-henry-thins-francis/
The jazz duo consisting of clarinetist/saxophonist John Clark and pianist Henry “thins” Francis, has been performing together since 1996 and as such, has compiled a bag of unique arrange- ments to familiar tunes we all know and love. The musical genre is best described as classic hot jazz, a distinct type of American music which de- veloped during the first half of the 20th century, covering the beginnings of jazz through the swing era. John and Henry concentrate on the rich source known as The Great American Songbook, which encompasses music (mostly songs) written by Broadway composers, pop songwriters, and jazz musicians. Their extensive knowledge of jazz and American popular song has yielded a large eclectic repertoire of interesting material, which they play with exuberance, swing, and taste.
Carleton Kendrick Lecture: "Everything in Moderation."- Is This Really the Best Way to Live Life?http://southgateatshrewsbury.com/event/carleton-kendrick-lecture-everything-moderation-really-best-way-live-life/
Carleton is going to explore the origins and wis- dom of the endlessly repeated, guiding principle – Everything in moderation. Are far more than mod- erate, even extreme behaviors sometimes the better choices? What about the value in abstain- ing or eliminating some things from our lives ra- ther than practicing moderation? What does mod- eration mean to you? Bring your thoughts and suggestions on this principle and these questions.
Women’s Circle: "Climate Change in New England"http://southgateatshrewsbury.com/event/womens-circle-climate-change-new-england/
“Climate Change in New England” is the topic for our Women’s Circle Breakfast with speaker Chuck Arning, an Inter- pretive Park Ranger and A/V Specialist for the Na- tional Park Service in the Blackstone River Val- ley. Ranger Arning will discuss the significance of the impact of our changing climate on New Eng- land and the inter-relationships between our changing climate and our immediate environ- ment. Life and economic activity across New Eng- land are marked by the seasons–maple sugaring in the Spring, trips to the beach in the Summer, the riot of color in the Fall foliage, and the swoosh of skis and skates in the Winter. This familiar cy- cle is already changing in noticeable ways. Rang- er Arning has produced over 100 television videos focusing on history and culture, preservation, and oral histories of Blackstone Valley residents. He produces, writes, and hosts “Along the Black- stone,” which has aired on the History Channel.

W.I.S.E. Program “Five Pivotal Moments in US History”http://southgateatshrewsbury.com/event/w-s-e-program-five-pivotal-moments-us-history/
Southgate hosts the 5-week series entitled, “Five Pivotal Moments in US History”
As pressing as our national debates might seem to be in the present, we can’t fully engage with them, or with any other American conversations, until and unless we have a fuller and richer sense of our past. In this course, we’ll focus on five mo- ments about which we know far too little about including: Women’s Suffrage; the 1876 Centenni- al; the Chinese Exclusion Act; the Wilmington coup and massacre; the Bonus Army March; and the American Indian Movement and Native Ameri- can Rights.
This course is taught by Benjamin Railton – a Professor of English and American Studies at Fitchburg State University. ALL WISE classes held at the Southgate site are free of charge to Southgate Residents. Registered students from the outside community will be attending.
