What are your chances for sex and romance as a “sexagenarian” and beyond? Harvard Medical School neurologist and neuropsychiatrist Bruce H. Price, M.D., studies aging in all its aspects, from changes in the body and brain to how we can preserve vitality. With humor and pictures, he’ll discuss whether sexual desire necessarily wanes—or does it only change? How late in life can people continue with romantic relationships and active sexual lives? Are there gender differences?  What’s the scoop on Viagra, and why is there no female equivalent? Bruce promises a highly interactive talk—so bring your questions!

Tom Babson’s face will be familiar to many of us: for 11 years, he played Ted Danson’s incompetent lawyer on Cheers. An actor, writer, and director, Babson lived in LA for 20 years and appeared in more than 250 films, television shows, and commercials, including roles on Hill Street Blues, St. Elsewhere, McGiver, and Full House. Tom has acted in and directed more than 100 theatre productions. He’ll describe the actor’s craft, and tell us how a Massachusetts-born ice hockey player and coach made it to Hollywood, where he also taught Paul Newman how to play hockey for the 1977 movie Slap Shot.

A Brief History of Cambridge Boat Club

Cambridge Boat Club was founded by civic minded Cantabrigians who gathered to create a common resource for athletics and socializing. The club was incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on April 7th, 1909. Its declared purpose was to "encourage athletic exercises, boating and yachting and to establish and maintain a place for social meetings".

This is the era when people began to formally take notice of the importance of individuals and groups to marshall their forces, in stewardship of the nation's open spaces and recreational lands. It is the time of Teddy Roosevelt's Presidency, the establishment of many of our great national parks and the environmental movement so capably espoused by the impassioned photography of Walter Muir. Mount Auburn Cemetery and Frederick Law Olmsted's Emerald Necklace are still in their infancy.
