The Giving Circle event last night, screening the film The Queen of Katwe, was a lovely event. Proceeds will be used to support the Giving Circle’s Chess programs at two Ugandan schools. Chess is not just fun – it is a real brain booster, that supports the development of critical thinking and reasoning, as well as math and language skills.
If you weren’t able to come, you can still help support this wonderful program. You can sponsor a child directly, or simply make a contribution. Here’s a link to the specifics about their chess program.
If you haven’t been to the Rochmon Record Club, and you enjoy great music from the 70’s and 80’s, you’re really missing a great event. The “club” is the brainchild of Chuck Vosganian – a long-time fan of rock and other late last century genres. Every month, Chuck holds a listening party to listen to an iconic album. Last month was Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung”. Chuck plays each individual song, providing really interesting background and commentary on the album, the band members, and other things politically & culturally going on at the time.
The audience is a mix of young and old – the only prerequisite is that you like music. The events are free (donations accepted).
The May Album: Aja (Steely Dan – 1977)
Location: Caffe Lena, 6:30 pm.
