file

Note that all regular BCARF activities will be held on Thursdays in 2017 -2018

Program Meetings are scheduled for 117 Lake Street, Room 113 (the auditorium of the Theology and Ministry Library), 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM with lecture beginning at Noon.  Light buffet of sandwiches and beverages is served.  Parking is available in the large lot just south of the STM Library (i.e., on the Commonwealth Ave side).  It is on your left, part way down the hill, as you enter the campus from Commonwealth Ave, directly in front of the library building as you approach from that direction. 

The Book Club meets from 10:00 AM to 11:45 AM in St. Clement's Hall, 201 Foster St., John Donovan Room, St. Clement's S425, on the Brighton Campus.

Research Seminars meet at Noon to 1:30 PM in St. Clement's Hall, 201 Foster St., Room S415 (Conference Room), on the Brighton Campus. with a light luncheon served beginning at 11:45 AM.

The Executive Committee meets from 1:30 PM to 3 PM (except noon to 1:30 PM on January 25 and May 31 only) in St. Clement's Hall, 201 Foster St., John Donovan Room, St. Clement's S425, on the Brighton Campus.

Our new research office, St. Clement’s S425, is ready for use.  The only restriction on use is when the room needs to be used for an Executive Meeting or a Book Club meeting.  These are relatively few and their dates can be found on our web page.

Museum Tours: BC’s McMullen Museum is offering three exhibitions during the fall term 2017.  “Nature’s Mirror: Reality and Symbol in Belgian Landscape” is curated by Prof. Jeffery Howe (Fine Arts).  Prof. Howe will lead us on a guided tour of the exhibition on Thursday, November 16, at 1:45 PM (following the Program Meeting and Luncheon).  As time permits we will also tour the other two exhibits, “New England Sky: Alston Conley” and “Esteban Lisa: The Abstract Cabinet.”

Note on parking for activities in St. Clement’s Hall:

There is parking for half a dozen cars without BC stickers, and with a ninety-minute limit, in the semicircular driveway in front of the north wing of St. Clement’s.   For cars with BC stickers, there is parking available in the two lots north of St. Clement’s off Foster St. 

If you do not have a BC sticker, you may park in either of those locations, but to avoid parking tickets it is best to leave a note on your windshield indicating that you are retired BC faculty, attending a BCARF function or using the BC Association of Retired Faculty office, St. Clement’s 425S.

Unless you have an A or M sticker, do not park in the lot directly in front of the south wing of St. Clement’s.  The parking restriction in this lot is rigorously enforced.

The titles of the Program Meetings, the topics of the Research Seminars, and the book choices of the Retired Faculty Book Club may be found on the Activities and Events page.
