On Monday there is an artist's reception for West Roxbury's Jan Boyd 'Hope and Inspiration' exhibit at 5:30 p.m. at the West Roxbury Library. Please join  Boyd, for a reception featuring photographs of several of the pages of the book Jan created, which was presented to Pope Benedict XVI in 2008 with names of the almost 1500 people who had identified themselves as survivors of clerical abuse in the Archdiocese of Boston. Other current original work  will also be on display. The exhibit will be available for viewing through October 2013 during regular library hours.

  4. The Samuel Adams Octoberfest is on Sept. 13 & 14 (yeah, I'm confused, too). Beer, food, music and more.
  5. Sign-up your girl for Girl Scouts.

I think seeing people and kids on a weekly basis is becoming an issue. I would rather see people at store fronts where it's safer. I also think supporting local groups makes us give more because we see this money get used in our own community
