Home Runs for Literacy at the Seasons New Miniature Fenway Park!

fenwayjrYou take a single deep breath, and step into the batter’s box. Though your heart is pounding and the sweat drips from your forehead into your eyes, the sight of the legendary Green Monster in left field makes you remember that you’ve been waiting your whole life for this one epic moment.  Gripping the bat tightly, you stare down the opposing pitcher, who now seems rattled by your ferocious focus. Still, the pitcher winds up, releases a wicked curve ball, and…


With a mighty swing, the ball takes off like a shot into the late afternoon sky. You watch as it soars toward the landmark Citgo sign high above the Green Monster, the ball’s flight almost in slow motion. It is a moment out of the movies, as the ball clears the twelve foot high wall and crashes into the Citgo sign. You have done it. You have hit your first Fenway home run.

And in so doing, you have also raised money for Intervale, New Hampshire’s Believe in Books Literacy Foundation. A game winning home run for a worthy cause — what more could you ask for?

Here at The Seasons’ Fenway Jr., our fully playable wiffle ball field that bears a stunning resemblance to that sweet old ballpark in Boston, the field is small, but the dreams are big. For our Grand Opening on Sunday, August 25, 2013 at 12:00PM, we will be the proud host of the First Annual Home Runs for Literacy, a Home Run Derby fundraiser. All proceeds from the event will go to The Believe in Books Literacy Foundation, a unique nonprofit whose aim is to enhance the quality of life through exposure, education, and the engagement of reading and bringing stories to life.

For just $5, participants will get ten swings at the fences, and we encourage all who enter to ask family, friends and colleagues if they’d like to pledge whatever amount they’re able to give for every home run their slugger hits. We will also have activities and refreshments available throughout the course of the event, and the Believe in Books team has a few fantastic surprises up their sleeve as well!

Anyone interested in signing up for this event and receiving an official Home Runs for Literacy Pledge Sheet can inquire by emailing marketing@seasonsnh.com.

Bottom of the ninth. Two outs. The Fenway faithful is on the edge of their seats.

Have you got what it takes to make the crowd go wild? Come on over on August 25th and find out!

Theorem Painting is an early American decorative technique that was popular during the early 1800s. Its primary attraction, then as today, is the fact that it enables the average non-professional artist to create artworks for their own use, using a sequence of two or more stencils or overlays.

Jean Hansen will provide the material and her expertise to teach you how to use this historic technique, and Remick Museum’s Farmhouse Kitchen will provide refreshments.

The cost is $40 (includes cards, stencil and refreshments). 

Register by calling the Remick Museum at 323-7591. 

For more information about theorem painting and examples,
