Save the date! This summer, we are celebrating the Center’s five-year anniversary and the official grand opening of More than a Job with an event on June 26th! Watch demonstrations of model boat making and other industry skills. Enjoy live music featuring the Rum Soaked Crooks. Plus make and take activities for the kids. The celebration is free and open to the public. A speaking program at noon will feature remarks by elected officials including Congressman Bill Keating, Representative Antonio Cabral, and a keynote address by Brian Boyles, Executive Director of Mass Humanities.
