FEATURED STORY

Taiwan Garden at the Hude Community Center PlaygroundNewton Thanks the Taiwan Garden ROC Committee

The Taiwan Garden at the Hyde Community Centre Playground is in the height of spring glory! Since 2010 the members of the Taipei Economic Culture Center and Newton Parks and Recreation Department have nursed the creation of an authentic Chinese garden. The garden features the use of plant material indigenous to China and is further beautified with architectural elements singularly Chinese. Proud to be giving back to the City of Newton, Dr. Edward Kuo smiles as he enjoys the colorful spring display! See more photos.

Life’s Joys and Sorrows: a Poetry Workshop

Tuesday, May 26, 2015
12:30 PM-2:00 PM
Newton Senior Center, 345 Walnut Street, Newtonville

Poetry is perceived by many as an esoteric and inaccessible art form. It doesn’t have to be that way! In this five-session workshop we will use poetry to reflect upon the joys and sorrows of life. We will read works of Robert Frost, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Mary Oliver, W.S. Merwin, John Keats, Jane Kenyon, ee cummings, asho, and others. W e will engage in simple writing exercises to help us create our own poetry. No previous experience with poetry is required. Led by Volunteer Marcia Felth. Free.
