About Dorchester
map
Dorchester Massachusetts is Boston's largest neighborhood and also its oldest, founded just a few months before the City itself.

The Neponset River provided the power for many manufacturing mills located in the lower mills section of Dorchester which is rich in history of the industrial age.

Today Dorchester retains its diversity and with the multi-family homes retains its suburban like feel.

Dorchester is home to the University of Massachusetts and the John F. Kennedy Library located at the tip of Columbia Point and visible from interstate 93.

14th Annual Joe Bishop Memorial Golf Outing

Monday, September 8, 2014

8:30 AM Shotgun StartMerrimack Valley Golf Club

210 Howe Street

Methuen, Massachusetts 01844

 

Year after year we continue to be amazed by the support we receive from friends and family for our Dad’s memorial golf outing. It’s hard to believe that this year marks the 15th Anniversary of Joe’s passing. His memory continues to live on and we are fortunate to be able to do this every year as part of his legacy.

Joe was a man who cared deeply about his family but equally focused his time and energy on those in need in the communities that surrounded him. Throughout his life, Joe was an avid supporter of Lazarus House Ministries and advocated the good deeds they perform on a day-to-day basis.

Lazarus House has been a pioneer in assisting the homeless, the poor and those in need. Lazarus House operates a shelter, soup kitchen and assists food pantries, among many other services. They are continuously working to help move people beyond poverty and crisis, into the mainstream.

Join us this September to celebrate the life of a man who dedicated so much of his time to helping those in need. We look forward to seeing all of you and having a great day of golf in honor of Joe!

Zero to 30: the TWC Hackathon

On August 9, TWC and StartOut are bringing their members together for the first ever TWC Hackathon. What's that? A hackathon is an event where people get together to collaborate to solve a problem. In our case, the problem is how to introduce TWC to thousands of new members as we expand across the country.

Keep reading to find out more and join a team. Whether you're a start-up whiz or just passionate about TWC's mission, we want to hear your ideas.

The challenge:
Design the best 30-day campaign to creatively reach 30,000 new members in our soon-to-be-launched cities.  TWC is opening three new cities in October 2014. We want to add 10 thousand members in each city between September 1 and September 30. We think the best way to find out about TWC is through current members, so we’re asking our members to come together to compete for prizes by designing campaigns that we can launch across three new cities to introduce thousands of people to TWC.

The plan:
On August 9, The Welcoming Committee and StartOut host “Zero to 30: the TWC Hackathon,” which is bringing together LGBTQs, start-up geeks, and branding gurus to generate creative launch-marketing campaigns that will help us take The Welcoming Committee across the country. 

The day will begin with the announcement of the three cities we’re opening in. To develop their campaigns, teams of TWC members will brainstorm ideas with help from our staff, professional brand strategists, graphic designers, and presentation experts. Finally, they'll present their campaigns to a panel of judges.

“Zero to 30: the TWC Hackathon” is co-hosted by StartOut. Space graciously provided by IdeaPaint.

The perks:

  • Be the first to find out our next three cities and learn more about TWC's expansion plans
  • Meet with and learn from marketing professionals
  • Prizes for the winning team
  • Surprises (of course) for everyone

The schedule:

  • 11 am: Check in
  • 11:30: Presentation

Intro to Inkscape for (Laser) Cutting AUGUST 3

Description:

Meet Inkscape - your friendly professional vector graphics editor! Inkscape is an easy software tool to use to prepare your design for cutting on a CNC cutting machine like a laser or vinyl cutter, and you can download it for free on your laptop or home computer.

This class covers Inkscape basics, how to work from photographs and drawings and create files you can export to cut on vinyl and laser cutters.

*Note: This class does not review operations of the Artisan's Asylum laser cutter. For training on that machine, see the Asylasaur training listed on this page.

Class Goals:

Students will:

  • Learn basics of vector graphics and how it differs from raster graphics
  • Be able to apply the Inkscape tools
  • Convert photographs and scanned drawings to vector files

Prerequisites:

No previous experience required.

Students who would like to work on their own laptops should download and install Inkscape prior to class if possible -- assistance will be available in the half-hour before class for those having issues installing the software.

Students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials Provided:

Computers with Inkscape installed will be available for any students who need them. Cardstock, vinyl, and laser and vinyl cutting will be provided to cut projects drawn in class, for a small fee payable to the instructor.

What to Bring:

Students should bring $5 materials fee to class to cover the cost of cutting their project. Students who would like to work on their personal laptops should bring them, with Inkscape already downloaded and installed.

Instructor Biographies:

Derek Seabury is a computer scientist, systems architect, and scuba diving instructor who's been juggling vectors for decades. Derek led the Asylum team that built the Asylasaur laser cutter.


Jimmie Rodgers has been working with various types of electronics since 2007. He is the Artisan's Asylum Electronics & Robotics shop monitor, and teaches classes in robotics, basic soldering, wearable electronics, and circuitbending at Artisan's Asylum and abroad.

Sunday, August 3, 11:00am-1:30pm 

  

REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than three days in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form.
