The National Honor Society is an organization of high school students who come together to create an impact in their community and serve as agents for change. As members of the National Honor Soci- ety, it was requested that they do a project that would make a change in their commu- nity and that they could connect with. On Thursday, May 2, 2013 Michaela and Alyssa put a Kickball game together at Malden High School with students against teachers to support Housing Families in Malden. Hous- ing Families is an organization where home- less families are given a safe place to call home. Alyssa and Michaela thought it would be nice to have some of the children who live at Housing Families join in the festivi- ties and invited the children who live there to their event and provided them with pizza that was donated by DiPietro's in Malden. These kids appreciated the food very much. Malden Mayor Gary Christenson rolled out the first pitch of the game. Malden Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy was also in at- tendance to lend her support. They raffled off many items consisting of products such as: bath and body works bas- kets, which were donated by the Bath and Body Works in Beverly, MA and many pieces of sports memorabilia, donated by Salem Five Savings Bank in Malden. They also sold soaps donated by Candlicious Occasions in Malden and stuffed bears donated by First & Main in Illinois. In the end, with the donations that they received and all of the proceeds from the raffles and items, donations totaling $400 dollars for Housing Families were collected L-R: Alyssa Figueiredo, Malden Mayor Gary Christenson and Michaela D'Onofrio.

It was an amazing experience that no one will ever forget and to see the smiles on everyone's faces was just priceless. We are both so very proud to have been able to give back to the community that gives so much to us. The Museum of Fine Arts Will Reincarnate 'Hippie Chic' this July Let's take a moment to mentally trans- port ourselves to summer: Boston is hot, flowers are in bloom and within the walls of the Museum of Fine Arts, so are the floral psychedelic prints of the '60s and '70s. "Hippie Chic" is the latest in the museum's string of fashion-focused exhibitions, run- ning from July 2 through November 11, 2013. The turbulent era made an imprint on countless aspects of culture, a big com- ponent of which was the way people dressed. The 50-ensemble showcase features re- invented fabrics from young designers of the decade -- velvet, eyelet, satin, leather -- as well as popular detailing like beading, fringe, patchwork and the inescapable tie-dye. Many of the pieces are new acquisitions to MFA's Textile and Fashion Arts collection. Especially notable about the time period was the rejection of haute couture and the fa- voring of individual street style. Anyone want to draw some parallels between now and then? This exhibit should not be missed, though if you do, there is a coordinating hardcover by curator Lauren D. Whitley. PAISLEY, BEADS AND FRINGE: CELEBRATE HIPPIE FASHION The end of the 19605 and early 1970s was an exciting time for fashion as the counter culture's challenges to authority expressed itself in new ways of thinking about dress. The emerging hippie culture rejected the dictates of Paris haute couture, adopting instead an eclectic, highly individual look, mixing vintage and ethnic clothing with fashions inspired by contemporary psychedelic Pop art, nature, fantasy and ethnographic art. For the first time, trends percolated up from the streets to affect ready to wear and even haute couture. "Hippie Chic" celebrates the designs of innova- tive boutiques and young designers and includes about 50 ensembles, in materials (crushed velvet, eyelet, satin, leather,), techniques and embellishments (tie-dye, patchwork, beads and fringe) and styles from psychedelic to retro that made state- ments consonant with the era's experimen- tation, theatricality, and freewheeling spirit.
