Music Historian Bruce Hambro Lecture
Topic: Judy Garland: The Girl from Oz
11:00 am, Activity Room
This presentation is an engaging one-hour review of the life and fabulous career of the girl from Oz! It analyzes the genius of Judy Garland, a show business dynamo of unparalleled gifts. During the program, an informative discussion is teamed with a PowerPoint presentation that includes fascinating archival photos, many of which harken back to the delightful motion pictures in which Judy starred, such as “The Wizard of Oz,” “For Me and My Gal,” “Meet Me in St. Louis,” “Easter Parade” and “A Star Is Born.” Bruce Hambro is a history teacher, as well as a student of the American entertainment industry. He has always been enchanted by the magic of Judy Garland. Mr. Hambro believes that no other female musical performer in the history of show business has ever matched Judy’s brilliance in the areas of singing, dancing and acting. Her signature, of course, was her incredible facility to pack heartrending emotion into so many classic songs, that the listener couldn’t help but love her!

Gary Hylander Lecture
Topic: Boston Molasses Flood
11:00 am, Activity Room
Gary Hylander holds a Doctorate in Presidential History and is a scholar entirely impassioned by his subject matter. He makes U.S. history come alive as he lectures here each month. This month’s topic is: Boston Molasses Flood. In the early afternoon of January 15, 1919, a fifty foot steel tank filled with over two million gallons of molasses collapsed in Boston’s North End sending its sticky contents in a fifteen-foot wave through the neighborhood streets. The disaster was blamed on immigrant anarchists and seen by many as proof that the nation was imperiled by Bolsheviks and others. The event knocked the end of World War I and Prohibition out of the headlines.
