Boston Rotary helps ring in the Year of the Dog with a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to celebrate Lunar New Year!

Explore Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese traditions while enjoying a variety of music and dance performances throughout the Museum—including lion dances performed by the Gund Kwok Asian Women Lion and Dragon Dance Troupe and Wah Lum Kung Fu and Tai Chi Academy.

Join us to participate in an interactive demonstration of Saebae, a Korean New Year’s ceremony; go on a tour or talk highlighting works in the Art of Asia galleries, offered in English, American Sign Language, and Mandarin; watch demonstrations of Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese martial arts; and embark on a scavenger hunt in the galleries or drop in on hands-on family art-making activities to create your own masterpieces to take home. The New Jersey–based Korean Traditional Arts Academy also performs.

This Community Day event is a great way to include friends and family!

Where: Plan on arriving early to allow time to park and walk to the MFA Huntington Avenue Lobby Entrance.

#RedCrossReady  Four Boston Rotarians attended Prevent & Prepare.  
L-R  Past President David Manzi, Past President Shiela Lally, Current President Lori Karas and Past President Susana Brown
 
Lori Karas is a Chapter Board Member of the Red Cross of Massachusetts and active member of The Women Who Care committee of the American Red Cross of Massachusetts, which annually organizes one of the largest networking events in the Commonwealth. In the tradition of founder, Clara Barton, the event was developed to help raise awareness and garner support for the critical programs provided by the American Red Cross of Massachusetts.
This year two individuals were honored who exemplify the mission of the American Red Cross. 
Dr. David R. King, a Mass General surgeon who used medical savvy from years at war to help victims of traumatic injury promotes the use of modern tourniquets, which, if used properly, are effective in stopping massive bleeding without loss of limbs. 
Joseph E. Finn, Boston Fire Commissioner and Chief of Department was introduced by Lauren Baker, First Lady of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Red Cross volunteer.  Commissioner Finn praised the American Red Cross for partnering with Boston Fire to install 1,000 smoke detectors for the elderly community. Early warning and early detection save lives from fast burning fires.
