Kennedy.Come tour our Museum which portrays the life, leadership, and legacy of President Kennedy, conveys his enthusiasm for politics and public service, and illustrates the nature of the office of the President.

    It was great to view all the historical JFK/Jackie O items and to compare then to now. We had some good conversations about recent history and elections. Thanks everyone who came out to join me.

    An FYI for anyone planning to take the Red Line between Alewife and Harvard stations to get to this event. The Red Line won't be running between those stops this weekend due to maintenance work. Instead the T will be running shuttle buses between Alewife and Harvard so be sure to allow extra time.

    Hi Everyone,
    We have a real good group for Sunday. However, if your plans change and you won't be able to make it, please update your rsvp. This should be a fun time.

    Thanks All.
