Resident and author Tara Cousineau recently spoke at the Milton Public Library about her book, “The Kindness Cure,” exploring the idea of the power of kindness in our society and lives, the reasons why it may be lacking, and the ways in which it can improve things. Empathy, compassion, and other similar notions are considered in this talk that is airing during the Monday forum at 8 p.m. on the Public channel.
The Quincy Choral Society recently performed Carl Orff’s scenic cantata “Carmina Burana” at St. Mary of the Hills Church for its spring concert. Featuring the voices of a number of Milton residents, as well as orchestral accompaniment and members of the South Shore Children’s Chorus Intermediate Choir, this QCS show is currently airing Tuesday evenings at 8:30 p.m. on the Public channel.
A wide-ranging and in-depth look at all of the scams directed at seniors was the theme of the recent presentation at the Council on Aging. This talk from Blue Hills Bank’s Julie Beckham, titled “Protecting Your Money,” covered ideas like what kinds of life events, or even times of the day, may make seniors targets, as well as how to recognize scams and protect against them. This program is currently airing on Thursday mornings at 10:30 a.m. on the Public channel.
The MAC Open Mic rolls into summer with its latest rendition of local acts. Music and poetry are both part of this month’s installment, that is currently airing on Music Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. on the Public channel.
The walk relay, the bike relay and the swim competition together comprise the first annual Fuller Village Triathlon. Five teams of athletes competed for the inaugural crown this spring, zipping around the grounds at Fuller in this friendly and feel-good competition. Tune in to the Public channel Thursdays at 2 p.m. to see all the action.
