sing-a-longs, including some traditional KB favorites as well as some new tunes.

Raising Freethinkers: Secular Parenting Tips and Strategies
Sunny Schwartz will lead a discussion of the book Raising Freethinkers: A Practical Guide for Parenting Beyond Belief by Dale McGowan. The book offers advice for secular parenting, providing tips and strategies for addressing such issues as death, sexuality, morality, and religion while encouraging children to think for themselves. For a rich discussion, please read the book ahead of time, at least Chapter 1. (The book is available on Amazon and we have free copies of Chapter 1 available here.) Please come even if you haven't read the book and bring thoughts/questions.

Exploring the Fresh Pond Reservation: A Group Excursion
Spring is here! It’s time to get out into the Great Outdoors! Join Jon Levine to check out the local flora and fauna on a stroll around the wooded trails of
Cambridge’s favorite pond, just across the street from the Fayerweather School.

Decarbonize Your Life! Exploring New Climate Friendly Technologies *livestreamed*
Zoom link (same as the community gathering link):
From solar panels on the roof to the a heat pump on the wall to an EV in the driveway, the list of
ways to reduce your dependence on fossil fuels grows daily. But which options are right for you?
How can you afford to make the transition and what financial assistance is available? How far
will your new EV go before you have to recharge it? And—gasp—will you really need to buy
brand new pots and pans to cook with induction? Join Ryan Katofsky, Ben Lieberman, Nili
Perlmutter, Staci Rubin, and Nancy Waters for a panel discussion on the ins and outs of new
climate friendly technologies.
