Fall Bulb and Perennial Sale

From date: 
Wed, 07/31/2013 - 8:50pm

The Middlesex Conservation District, a nonprofit environmental agency, will be holding its annual Fall Bulb and Perennial Sale on Friday 9/20 (3-6pm) and Saturday 9/21 (8am - noon) at the 4H Fairgrounds, 51 South Chelmsford Rd, Westford, MA.

The Woburn Resident’s Environmental Network (WREN) is hosting the Eleventh Annual Native American Pow Wow at Berry Meadow Altavesta School on Saturday July 27 and Sunday, July 28. A grand entry will be at noon, but the gathering will be held between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. The public is cordially invited to attend and share in this unique Native American experience.

Pow wow or “healing ceremony” is a long-lasting tradition celebrating the rich and fascinating culture of Native Americans. Initially, pow wow was a ceremony conducted and celebrated in circle with tribal drums, dancing, food, chanting and traditional healing rituals. Today, the pow wow tradition is still alive, but with the emphasis more on a celebration of the traditions of Native Americans than an actual healing. The pow wow includes traditional dances as well as various religious ceremonies re-enacted for the general public. 

There will be many public displays of Native American culture during the event for people to share in and experience such as traditional Native American drumming, singing, dancing, and story-telling and a sacred fire ceremony. Traditional arts and crafts will be on sale as well as food.
