The Town of Weston was founded in 1713 and is located in Middlesex County on the perimeter of metropolitan Boston.
Travelers and visitors must stop and tour the Spellman Museum of Stamps and Postal History as well as Lands Sake.
One other major point of interest is the Golden Ball Tavern Museum that was built in 1750. A Preservation Architect quotes "This is probably the most unusual and without a question the most reminiscent house museum in New England" The Golden Ball is not your standard house museum therefore their standard tour is not the standard house museum tour.
Mark your calendars for September 19, 2015 to celebrate another successful season at Land's Sake! Our fall dinner event is hosted at the farm to reinforce the connections between you, this special place, and the work Land’s Sake does. Feast on a delicious farm-to-table meal by Forklift Catering, listen to live bluegrass music, bid on homemade pies and fine wine, enjoy dancing with delicious late-night snacks, and celebrate community with close friends under a tent in the beautiful fields. Included in your ticket is a tax-deductible donation to help Land's Sake kick off their 36th year of farming in the heart of Weston. Please let us know if you'd like to volunteer for or sponsor the event by contacting Alix Mackey at firstname.lastname@example.org or Holly Ameden at email@example.com.

Actual event runs 12 - 6 pm (rep hours include set up/pack up). What is TROMP? TROMP is a different way to educate about the gear you sell. Rather than lecturing to folks, you get to put your product on people and let them experience it in a dynamic learning environment. They can then bring that first-hand experience and learning back to their stores and customers. Do I have to RSVP? Yes, please, register/RSVP above by simply following the easy steps. If you are not personally the one who will be attending from your rep group, please include the name/email/phone number of the person(s) who will be attending when you RSVP. For all events (but especially the larger events; Seattle, N. Cal, Denver, Bloomington, Zappos.com, Backcountry.com) we definitely recommend 2 people. Please note, if someone from your rep group/brand is not present at TROMP we cannot display/use your product for the event. Who is invited to TROMP? In the past we targeted REI employees for TROMP. We now involve all and any specialty accounts in each market but it can be hard to get them to come. We mail posters and invites to every store in the market, but this often isn’t enough. Let us know who you want to invite and we can make sure they know about it. Are my specialty accounts coming? See above. It is sort of up to you. What do I need to bring? You don’t need to bring much! The TROMP truck will be driving around the country with your demo product. For most brands we will also transport a table cloth, table top POS and any free standing banners. However, it never hurts to bring some with you in case. You will need to bring any shwag or collateral you want to give out. If you are Outerwear brand, then please bring a branded 10x10 tent, as you will be outside in the sun (or even rain). We will not be tranporting tents around the country. Your tent will go home with on the day of TROMP. What will my area consist of? If you are a footwear brand: We will supply you with two tables to set up in an L-shape. You will will be inside the main hall. See this lovely picture to see what a nice looking booth looks like. If you are an accessories brand: You will get 1-2 tables depending on how much stuff you have in your fleet. You will also be inside the main hall. If you are an outerwear brand: Depending on the venue, you will most likely be outside (hence the need to bring a branded tent) and around our simulated environments. You will get 1 table and how ever many rolling rack your brand supplied. Why do I need to arrive 1.5 hours before TROMP begins? Although we bring your product to each event, you will need to set it up. And even though we have a start time for each event, REI employees always show up at least 30 minutes early….so we need to be ready for them. We also feed you so you want to have enough time to eat – because once TROMPers start arriving, you may not have time to stop and eat! How long do I need to stay after TROMP? Breakdown is pretty quick, so as soon as you can pack up your product and any other materials you are free to go…. What do I wear? Check the weather forecast and definitely pack for whatever conditions are forecasted. TROMP happens rain, shine, or wind (it’s a GORE-TEX® & WINDSTOPPER® event after all). We typically have footwear vendors inside, and outerwear vendors outside. However, each venue is unique and we cannot ensure that you will be inside. It goes without saying to wear comfortable footwear, as you will not be sitting much (or at all) at this event! How many people will attend? The number of people we are expecting varies by market but here is our best estimate: •REI/OS Denver, CO: 175 • REI/OS N. California: 175 • REI/OS Seattle: 125 • REI/OS Bloomington: 125 • REI/OS Detroit (Moosejaw): 100 • REI/OS Boston: 75 • REI/OS DC: 75 • REI/OS NY/NJ: 75 • BC.com, Salt Lake City: 200 • Zappos.com, Las Vegas: 400 Why is my brand included in TROMP? Probably because your brand uses GORE-TEX Technology and because you are considered an a-tier brand within the industry. But maybe also because REI specifically asked for you to be at TROMP. How long do the attendees spend at TROMP? The average attendee spends 3+ hours of their own time at TROMP. The vast majority are not paid to come which we like. It make them more internally motivated to learn. What brands are at TROMP? It varies by market. You can see the brands for each market at gore-tex.com/tromp. Click on your market and read the prose there. What if I have other questions about TROMP? We will have a rep conference call approximately 4 weeks before your event to go over all the details and answer any questions you have. And, as always, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. What if I have questions or a problem the day of the event? Call Marshall Balick’s cell phone: 206.228.5268

Most educators recognise that pedagogical best practices lead us to create engaging experiences where students learn through discovery and participation. Unfortunately, all too many professional development experiences lack these important ingredients. Our aim is to create exciting events that reflect the way we learn best.
DEEP Learning conferences offer an innovative teaching & learning experience. We pride ourselves on bringing the best of many worlds together and are confident you have never attended a professional development event where such emphasis has been placed on individual control of the learning. We make it our business to ensure the greatest possible value through differentiation for each participant.
The goal of this conference is to create sustainable communities of passionate educators that choose to learn and share their experiences. We are pleased to be offering an official Google Apps Administrator course as an added value strand on Saturday.

Some days we want to run away. Some days it's because life's too difficult. Some days because life is too boring. Often it just doesn't feel as though the life we have is the life we wanted. But the hard reality is that this life is not a rehearsal. It is for real. And it matters. So how do we make sense of the unreasonable demands made upon us? How can belonging to church really help us with the tricky decisions we need to make in life? And how can we live authentically as Christians in our families, our neighborhoods and our workplaces? There is good news. The answer to all these questions will not be found in a program we have to sign up for; nor will it be answered by us working harder; nor do we have to find super-human strength. God is so committed to forming a people that can live fruitfully for his purpose that he has committed to be with us, in fact closer than with us - to be in us. His life, his Spirit, is the promise that enables our life to make sense. Join Dr Neil Hudson from the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC) to explore the real difference this makes. Our prayer is that it will help you think in new ways, that it will be relevant to you, and that you will be encouraged and re-envisioned to live a fruitful life on your frontline everyday - wherever that may be.
