Holocaust Suvivor to speak at Nipmuc HS, March 19th 1pm



Nipmuc Regional High School in Upton, MA will host a guest speaker, Janet Applefield, on March 19th from 1:00 – 2:00pm in the auditorium.  All Mendon and Upton residents are welcome to attend.  Mrs. Applefield will speak about her life and her loss as a survivor of the atrocities of the World War II Holocaust. As a four year old Jewish girl, her country of Poland was attached by Germany setting off a series of tragic events that destroyed her family and would see genocide committed on over six million European Jews. Mrs. Applefield will speak about what hate and prejudice did to her family and life. As a victim to the Holocaust, she knows her personal experiences have an impact on people. Her story is not about hatred toward Jewish people, it is about prejudice against all people the Nazis did not like. Survivors of the Holocaust are a dying breed. This speaker wants to make an impression and an impact to make others aware.  “This program is supported in part by a grant from the Mendon Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency”.

Drum Away the Blues - A Musical Celebration of Native America

Thursday, February 19

6:00 p.m., Upton Town Hall


Using assorted percussion instruments, music educator/percussionist Craig Harris provides adults and children with the key to stress relief tools for emotional balance. "Stress is about dreading the past or fearing the future," said Harris, "When one plays a drum or percussion instrument, they're immediately transported into the present."

Craig Harris holds a Masters degree in education, and teaching certification in music and early elementary education. For over 26 years he has shared his passion for music with young and old throughout Greater and Western Massachusetts. The author of The New Folk Music (White Cliffs Media, 1991), The Band: Pioneers of Americana Music (Rowman and Littlefield, 2014) and Heartbeat: The Magnificence of Native American Music (forthcoming), Harris is also a major contributor to Music Hound Folk Music: Essential Album Guide and Music Hound World Music: Essential Album Guide.
