Parent-to-Parent college night Sept. 27

Would you like to know how the college process feels from the parent perspective?

Parents of Bromfield Students in Grades 11 and 12 are invited to an informal presentation and conversation about the college process with parents of recent Bromfield graduates.

A panel of half a dozen parents will talk about their experiences. We will cover experiences with all types of colleges: Private, public and community; early decision vs. regular decision, liberal arts vs. specific focus (e.g. art). We have stories to tell and hope to shed light on the process that at times feel daunting.

Hold the date: Thursday, Sept. 27, at 7 p.m. in The Bromfield School Library. This meeting will follow a week after the Guidance Department provides specifics about the college application process.

Contact: Ellen Sachs Leicher, ESLAssoc61@aol.com.

Flea market Oct. 6

Harvard's first Flea Market was sponsored by the League of Women Voters in 1972. Since then it has been an annual community event, held on the grounds of The Bromfield School on Route 111. In the 1980's the Harvard Conservation Trust became a co-sponsor. In 2008 the Harvard Schools Trust became a third sponsor and replaced the Conservation Trust in 2009.

Each year thousands of bargain-hunters browse through more than 170 booths of antiques, collectibles, and household treasures. Local non-profit organizations sell a variety of foods and drinks. Don't miss Harvard's biggest and best event!

The 41st Annual Harvard Flea Market will be held Columbus Day Weekend, Saturday, Oct. 6, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (alternate date, Sunday, Oct. 7).
