Slide1:  Recent News and Information for 55 Hayden Avenue 1st Quarter, 2006 Looking to Italy: Torino 2006 From February 10 through 26, world attention will turn to Torino, Italy, for the 20th Olympic Winter Games. During the 16 days, more than 2,000 athletes from all five continents will compete in 78 events for 234 medals.   The Olympic Games are the world’s largest sporting event and set in the wider context of the Olympic Movement, founded by Pierre de Coubertin of France. Drawing inspiration from the ancient Olympic Games, Coubertin created the modern Olympic Games and founded the International Olympic Committee in 1894. The first Games followed two years later, as Athens, Greece, hosted the first modern Olympic Games.   The goal of the Olympic Movement, stated in its charter, is “to contribute to building a peaceful and better world by educating youth through sport practiced without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.” When Coubertin revived the Olympic Games, only summer sports were included. In 1924, the first International Winter Sports Week was held in Chamonix, France.    Beginning January 16 “Degas to Picasso: Modern Masters,” Museum of Fine Arts This exhibition, a survey of European Art from 1900 to the 1960s, includes works of Degas, Gauguin, Munch, and Rodin through the last creative outbursts of Giacometti and Picasso.

Saint Patrick is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland who is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for thousands of years. The first Saint Patrick’s Day parade was held in New York City on March 17, 1762, when Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through New York City. Since then, the tradition has continued in New York and beyond. South Boston’s annual parades been held since 1901, and the 105th annual parade is March 19th at 1:00 pm. Other towns celebrating St. Patrick’s Day include March 5 in Manchester; March 11 in Abington, Lawrence, and Worcester; and March 20 in Holyoke and Scituate. Visit www.saintpatricksdayparade.com/boston or www.cityofboston.gov/arts for details. Two years later, it was retroactively named the first Olympic Winter Games. Six sports were included on the program – bobsled, curling, ice hockey, skating, Nordic skiing, and the military patrol race.   While the number of sports has remained relatively stable over the years, the number of events continues to grow. At the 2002 Salt Lake City Games, athletes competed in seven sports (the original six plus biathlon) and a total of 78 events. A Winter Olympic sport must be widely practiced in at least 25 countries and on three continents in order to be included on the program. The three major attractions are ice hockey, skating, and skiing. continued on page 2 Slide2:  Building Buzz 20 & 21 Custom House DID YOU KNOW? In 1926, Dr. Carter G. Woodson designated the third week of February as Negro History Week. Woodson chose February to honor the birthdays of two important figures in the history of black America -- Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. In 1976, his efforts were further rewarded when February was designated as Black History Month. Boston has always been the home to a milestone in history and is celebrated during Black History Month. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts abolished slavery in 1783, and by the 1830s Boston had become the center of American abolitionist sentiment. The 54th Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, a black unit from Boston, became the first of its kind in the North, and was led by Robert Gould Shaw. The 54th Regiment led the battle to capture Charleston, South Carolina. Sergeant William Carney of New Bedford was wounded three times as he tried to save the American flag from Confederate soldiers and was the first African American awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Dedicated in 1897, many former members of the 54th Regiment, and Booker T. Washington, attended the ceremony. The monument sits across from the Massachusetts State House on Beacon Street, within walking distance from the Afro-American Museum and Black and one of 14 stops on the Black History Trail.

Instead of hibernating on the couch or heading to the gym, embrace the snow and cold temperatures of a New England winter. Many hidden treasures exist beyond skiing and snowboarding – and some may even be in your back yard. Love to Ski? New England is home to a number of famous ski resorts all located within a few hours of the city. Local favorites include Sunday River and Sugarloaf in Maine; Killington and Mount Snow in Vermont;, Loon Mountain in New Hampshire; and Nashoba Valley and Wachusett Mountain in Massachusetts. Visit www.newenglandskiresorts.com for a comprehensive map of New England ski resorts. To Ski is Not for Me! If you shy away from the idea of putting narrow little boards on your feet and plunging down a slippery mountain slope, consider that the deep winter months, from now through early March are perfect for snowshoeing in New England. Sources: www.explorenewengland.com, www.backpacking.net As winter and the snow cover deepens, snowshoes are a great way to get out and enjoy the winter scenery. Hiking trails become snowshoe trails of winter with snow-covered trees and frozen ponds. Other popular “trails” include backyards, state parks, national forests, and cityscapes. The best thing about snowshoeing is that anyone can do it, and it fits any budget. No ski lessons, expensive lift tickets, or special gear, except snowshoes and layers of warm clothing. Local snowshoeing clubs throughout New England often coordinate weekend workshops and daylong seminars. Winter hiking is also gaining popularity. Many public parks, cities, and towns maintain trail systems which remain accessible for Winter hiking and even snowshoeing. Some have special rules that apply to Winter use, so check for specifics. If nothing else, it's a great way to keep those hiking muscles active. Many lowland backcountry trails are also available year-round, albeit muddy. Trails in the mountains, (although buried in deep snow) are also traversable (with the help of some special gear). Lace up Your Skates For those bundled up in Beantown for the frosty winter months, the Boston Common Frog Pond doubles as an outdoor skating rink in the winter. Bring your own or rent onsite - the Frog Pond offers skate rentals, lockers, and warming area to thaw out. Across the river, the Charles Hotel in Cambridge also offers a local ice skating option – their 2,900 square foot rink is on the patio. Among the American athletes heading to Torino, more than a dozen athletes hail from Massachusetts – the USA Women’s Hockey Team includes Courtney Kenney (Woburn), Katie King (Methuen), Jamie Hagerman (North Andover), Sara Parsons (Dover), and head coach Ben Smith (Gloucester). The Men’s Hockey Team – which has included NHL players since 1998 – includes Keith Tkachuk (Melrose), Bill Guerin (Wilbraham), Tony Amonte (Hingham), and Rick DiPietro (Lewiston, ME). Other athletes include Garret Lucash (Attleboro, figure skating), Ashley Hayden (Westborough, luge), Matt Pelchat (Chelmsford, speed skating), Emily Cook (Belmont, freestyle skiing), Michelle Gorgone (Sudbury, snowboarding), and Caroline Hallisey (Natick, short track).   The motto of the Olympics is Citius – Altius – Fortius (Faster – Higher – Stronger). Good luck to Team USA – and let the games begin!
