 The ACDC concert will feature three of Boston’s coolest a cappella groups:

TonehengeTonehenge
Founded in 2009, Tonehenge is made up of eight “mostly clean-shaven” businessmen from the greater Boston area. Tonehenge’s uniquely cool rock-solid performances have ranged from a soaring national anthem at the Pawtucket Red Sox, to opening for audience faves Ball in the House and the Hyannis Sound!!

The WorksThe Works
Since 1994, The Works have performed for audiences ranging from performances at Disney World; to intimate private parties, schools, fundraisers, festivals and corporate functions.  Member of the American A Cappella Alliance’s Spring Sing, The Works deliver fun combos of eclectic repertoire and witty repartee!

Toxic Chemicals in Wellesley?  Come to April 5 Movie & Discussion

 

Toxins in Personal Care Products

 

Join us at this important April 5, 2017 movie screening at the Wellesley Library…

The Wellesley Cancer Prevention Project (http://wcpponline.org/ ) and the Wellesley Free Library are jointly sponsoring a FREE screening and discussion of  “STINK” – the award-winning documentary the chemical industry doesn’t want you to see!!

After giving his daughters new pajamas for Christmas  and noticing a “foul smell” when opening the packages, father and filmmaker Jon Whelan began what The Boston Globe called “a Michael Moore-type investigation” to expose toxic chemicals in common household goods (e.g. “Axe” body spray, perfumes, shampoos, clothing, etc).

Increases in incidence of diseases like cancer, reproductive problems, obesity and diabetes, parallels the growth hidden toxic chemicals in products in our homes!
