POST-GAZETTE, MAY 23, 2014 Page 5 Larz Anderson Auto Museum Summer Kickoff A Frank De Pasquale Venture The Larz Anderson Auto Museum, one of the oldest locations to view antique cars in America, runs Sun- day afternoon get-togethers from May through October. Historically, the kickoff event is called Cadillac Day and this year's first event was well attended with hun- dreds of Cadillac owners showing off their antique, special edition and one of a kind Cadillacs. I attended the kick off with several friends, all but one riding in John Lombardo's 1973 Cadillac Eldorado con- vertible. The man on the far right of the picture, Dick DeVito, brought a one of a kind Caddy. It is a contem- porary DTS that has been made into a 4 door convert- ible. During the warmer weather, I will frequent the museum on several Sun- days, as I have a few antique by John Christoforo Standing, L-R: John Lombardo and Paul Barker.

CITY OFFICIALS ANNOUNCE FREE BOSTON PARKS SUMMER FITNESS SERIES Interim Boston Parks Commissioner Chris Cook and Boston Public Health Commis- sion's Executive Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer, will be joined by Blue Cross Blue Shield Vice President of Corporate Citizen- ship Jeff Bellows on Monday, June 2 nd, from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm at Christopher Colum- bus Park in the North End to announce the launch of the Boston Parks Summer Fitness Series. The three-month series will bring free classes to parks across the City, aim- ing to activate these spaces while increas- ing opportunities for physical activity across all of Boston's neighborhoods. While Boston was ranked the sixth healthiest city in the country in the Ameri- can College of Sports Medicine's 2013 American Fitness Index, obesity rates re- main a challenge. According to the2012- 2013 Health of Boston Report, 21% of adults and 14% of high school students are obese. These rates are even higher among com- munities of color. Only about half of adults in Boston report exercising regularly. By en- gaging in a city-wide effort to increase oppor- tunities for physical activity, the Parks Department and the Public Health Commis- sion (BPHC) aim to decrease rates of obesity for all of Boston's residents. In years past, BPHC has offered a multitude of free fitness classes, but most have been in the down- town area, By extending this opportunity into the neighborhoods, the Boston Parks Sum- mer Fitness Series aims to further reduce barriers to active living and achiere our goal -- to ensure that Bostonians across the City have ample opportunity to be active. "We know that maintaining a healthy weight and being active is so important for overall health, but we also know how tough that can be to achieve," said Dr. Ferrer. "We hope that the Boston Parks Summer Fitness Series can be a fun and interactive way to help people stay on track to meet their (Continued on Page 15) Bricco Boutique ItolianCuisine 241 Hanover St. 617.248.6800 Trafforia II Panino Boston's 1st Original Trafforia 11 Parmenter St. 617.720.1336 Quaffro Grill, Rosticceria & Pizzeria 266 Hanover St. 617.720.0444 GiGi Gelateria 50 Flavors of Homemade Gelato 272 Hanover St. 64 Cross St. 617.720.4243 N.E.

Before you finalize your vacation plans, be sure you have given careful thought to whether you need to pur- chase travel insurance. There are circumstances that could cause you to can- cel your trip, return home early or force you to seek emergency medical treat- ment while traveling. Travel insurance may provide the extra protection you need. Better Business Bureau is advising travelers to weigh the pros and cons of travel insurance before going on an extensive trip. Some of the different types of insurance available include: Trip Cancellation/Inter- ruptton (TCI) - If your plans suddenly change and you have to cancel or end your trip early, TCI will cover you for this. But it will only re- imburse you for reasons on the insurer's acceptable list, such as injury, sickness, or death of yourself, a family member, traveling compan- ion or business partner. Some policies will cover only medical reasons and some will not cover pre-existing medical conditions. It's im- portant to read the fine print.
