The Town of Bourne also known as the gateway to Cape Cod since the Cape Cod Canal splits the town through the middle and the Bourne Bridge is way over the canal to the Cape.
The town was founded in 1884 and is located in Barnstable County. Bourne is the first town on Cape Cod that has oceanfront on both the north and east sides and provides many recreational activities including golf courses and water parks.
The annual Bourne Scallop Festival is held during the month of September and the celebration attracts visitors from across the nation. Other attractions include the Bourne Scenic Park and the National Marine Life Center.
Touch-a-Truck is all about kids, trucks, public safety, and family fun. Enthusiastic visitors climbed on and touched more than 50 commercial vehicles ranging from aerial cranes to concrete mixers and dump trucks. As in previous years, we expect state and local police, military personnel, as well as fire and public works departments to be on hand with trucks and family-oriented safety demonstrations. In addition to the trucks and other vehicles, visitors will be able to enjoy food from local providers, giveaways for the kids, activities for young and old alike and a helicopter landing and taking off!
Please visit www.cummings.com for more information. In previous years, this overwhelmingly successful free community event attracted more than 3,000 visitors. Exhibitors and spectators are welcome!
If you have any questions or know anyone who would like to display an interesting truck, please contact Jen Aalerud at 781-932-7013.

Demountable walls are not new to the market place. For years they have been used for glass storefront systems but things are changing. Lead by the partnerships of corporations with design and engineering firms, installers and contractors; there is a new way of thinking about demountable walls. Demountable walls are now fully-integrated into the architecture of a space and are being reconfigured and moved more than ever. Our panel discussion will explore the how, who, what, and why of this evolution of change. Why corporations are moving in this direction, who is designing the infrastructure kit of parts to meet the end-user space needs, and how is the product inventory managed?

For all of his accomplishments as an actor, best-selling author, and documentary subject, Rick Springfield’s first love has always been music, a passion he’s harbored since first picking up the guitar at the age of 12 in his native Australia. With 25 million records sold, 17 top-40 hits, including Don’t Talk to Strangers, An Affair of the Heart, I’ve Done Everything for You, Love Somebody and Human Touch, as well as a 1981 Grammy® for Best Male Rock Vocal for his No. 1 hit single “Jessie’s Girl,” Springfield shows no signs of slowing down. “I put everything I’ve got into making records,” he says. “Sometimes people may think they have you pegged but I trust the music to speak for itself.” Never one to be confined to the recording studio where the music is born, Springfield has toured for over 30 years, hand-delivering the hits to millions of fans worldwide via his dynamic live shows. His concerts are legendary with their rock heavy, high energy full band sets. However, in fall 2013 Springfield felt it was time to expand his live performance options. Hence the solo “Stripped Down” tour was created to bring an intimate yet lively performance to fans.
Immediately following the show, Springfield hosts an intimate Q & A session with the audience to offer a special, memorable and personal experience for the audience, taking the evening beyond the standard rock concert.

The Show Against Humanity: Comedy Inspired by "Cards Against Humanity" Game
In keeping with the party game's wicked sense of humor, makers of the insanely popular Cards Against Humanity actually raised its price on Black Friday ... and fans still went in crazy. That's how addictive -- and devious -- this game/social sensation truly is. Now it has inspired a live show at the Improv Asylum, The Show Against Humanity. Billed as a "Show for Awful People," this production features Main Stage actors, alumni and special guests staging some of the most politically incorrect, just plain "wrong" scenes you're ever going to see. You may hate yourself for laughing, but laugh you will at this edgy new show.

Harvard Book Store welcomes Nobel Prize–winning economist JOSEPH E. STIGLITZ andBoston Globe columnist ROBERT KUTTNER for a discussion of Stiglitz's book The Great Divide: Unequal Societies and What We Can Do About Them.
In The Great Divide, Joseph E. Stiglitz expands on the diagnosis he offered in his best-selling book The Price of Inequality and suggests ways to counter America’s growing problem. With his signature blend of clarity and passion, Stiglitz argues that inequality is a choice—the cumulative result of unjust policies and misguided priorities.
Gathering his writings for popular outlets including Vanity Fair and the New York Times, Stiglitz exposes in full America's inequality: its dimensions, its causes, and its consequences for the nation and for the world. From Reagan-era policies to the Great Recession and its long aftermath, Stiglitz delves into the irresponsible policies—deregulation, tax cuts, and tax breaks for the 1 percent—that are leaving many Americans farther and farther beyond and turning the American dream into an ever more unachievable myth. With formidable yet accessible economic insight, he urges us to embrace real solutions: increasing taxes on corporations and the wealthy; offering more help to the children of the poor; investing in education, science, and infrastructure; helping out homeowners instead of banks; and, most importantly, doing more to restore the economy to full employment. Stiglitz also draws lessons from Scandinavia, Singapore, and Japan, and he argues against the tide of unnecessary, destructive austerity that is sweeping across Europe.
Ultimately, Stiglitz believes our choice is not between growth and fairness; with the right policies, we can choose both. His complaint is not so much about capitalism as such, but how twenty-first-century capitalism has been perverted. His is a call to confront America's economic inequality as the political and moral issue that it is. If we reinvest in people and pursue the other policies that he describes, America can live up to the shared dream of a more prosperous, more equal society.
