It's INCREDIBLE!

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back, but this time Helen is in the spotlight, leaving Bob at home with Violet and Dash to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again.

Happy Flag Day, Lewisboro!

You're a grand old flag
You're a high-flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave
You're the emblem of
The land I love
The home of the free and the brave

Flag Day 2018 is a special event as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I! Learn more about this historic event here.

According to Military.com, The first celebration of the U.S. Flag's birthday was held in 1877 on the 100th anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777. However, they say, it is believed that the first annual recognition of the flag's birthday dates back to 1885 when a school teacher, BJ Cigrand, first organized a group of Wisconsin school children to observe June 14 - the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes as the Flag's Birthday. Cigrand, now known as the 'Father of Flag Day,' continued to publically advocate the observance of June 14 as the flag's 'birthday', or 'Flag Day' for years.

Music, dance and theater lovers near and far are invited to join the Jacob Burns Film Center (Pleasantville, NY) this summer for an extensive entertainment line-up filled with tunes, drama, and rock ‘n’ roll.

Sounds of Summer 2018: Music Films, Old and NewGet ready, because the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and other musical legends are coming to the Jacob Burns Film Center. From July 8th – August 23rd guests can enjoy an extensive slate of music films that showcase insightful and intimate documentaries about diverse musicians, young and old, along with brilliant musical performances.

Kicking off opening night with a reception on July 8th, JBFC will be showing the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine. Brimming with peace, love, and hope this 4K restoration provides a happy reminder of the power of music to make the world a better place. Showing July 30th will be the new sing-along version.

On July 11th & 12thguests can rock-out with the showing of the Rolling Stone: Stories from the Edge. A special Q&A with filmmakers Alex Gibney and Blair Foster will follow after the 11th. This two-part film chronicles the last 50 years of American music, politics, and popular culture through the perspective of Rolling Stone. The iconic magazine always understood that rock ‘n’ roll was more than music—it was a cultural force that helped shape America and defined generations. An exhilarating visual and musical experience narrated by Jeff Daniels, the film features performances by Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones, the Sex Pistols, the Clash, and Ice-T as it showcases the superb, groundbreaking work of the magazine’s many influential writers.

Singer-songwriter and actress Amber Rubarth will be performing her original music at JBFC on August 22nd. Rubarth’s performance will take place after a Q&A with JBFC founder Steve Apkon and the showing of American Folk. In this warm-hearted drama, folk musicians Amber Rubarth and Joe Purdy play Joni and Elliot, a couple of strangers who are thrown together by circumstance in the days after 9/11. Stranded in California, they end up taking a road trip to New York, making music-powered connections with all kinds of strangers along the way.  

JBFC’s World Stage on Screen series brings the best of international theater and fine arts to the silver screen. This series is ongoing throughout the year, but guests can enjoy a unique selection of live recorded Opera, Ballet, Shakespeare’s classic Romeo & Juliet and more this summer.

#StopTheTorture Campaign Launches in New York City Metro Area https://news.hamlethub.com/lewisboro/life/1519-stopthetorture-campaign-launches-in-new-york-city-metro-area1519-stopthetorture-campaign-launches-in-new-york-city-metro-area https://news.hamlethub.com/lewisboro/life/1519-stopthetorture-campaign-launches-in-new-york-city-metro-area1519-stopthetorture-campaign-launches-in-new-york-city-metro-area

In Yulin, China, June 21, is the start of an annual “festival” when dogs and cats – many of them stolen pets – are brutally beaten to death and then consumed. 
 
To help raise the public's awareness for this issue more than a dozen women and dog owners based in the New York Metro Area released images with their pets and the message “Stop The Torture” on Instagram. The campaign was formed to stir emotion and awaken audiences to the barbaric Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Visit the Humane Society International (HSI) website to sign the petition to help end the Yulin Dog Meat Festival hsi.org/stopthetorture 
 
The campaign was photographed by Westchester based pet and family portrait Photographer, Geoffrey Tischman, and was branded by internationally known Graphic Designer, Albian Gagica. Later this month, videos with behind the scenes footage from each photo shoot created by Starr Films will be released individually to further promote the campaign. The campaign was developed by Communications Strategist, Sarah Bamford, in collaboration with a team of professionals who donated their time and talent in support of the global movement to end Yulin forever. 
 
According to the Humane Society International, the Yulin Lychee and Dog Meat Festival was launched in 2010 by Yulin's dog meat traders as a commercial enterprise to boost their flagging sales. Previously, Yulin city had never known a dog meat festival and there was no established tradition of dog eating there, the traders tried to co-opt the idea of local tradition in order to legitimize the event. To date, Humane Society has shut down 11 dog meat farms around the world. In China, HSI is guiding and supporting numerous local animal welfare organizations in addressing the dog meat trade within their own country. Since August 2014, partner groups have assisted the rescue of more than 7,000 dogs across China from large transport vehicles carrying hundreds of captured dogs in crowded cages to their deaths at slaughterhouses. 
 
The #StopTheTorture official hashtag is being used to track its influence among others who participate in the campaign by posting an image with the provided caption. Partnering on the Campaign is the Founder of Evoke Marketing and PAWS of Greenwich, Jessica Del Guercio with Hope @ms_evoke; International Actress and Humanitarian, Gabriela Dias with Coco and Hines @officialgabrieladias; Professional Ballet Dancer and Co-Founder of EmpowHer New York, Ingrid Silva with Frida @ingridsilva; Founder of Bread & Butter Marketing, Ria Rueda with Bear @breadandbuttermktg; Founder of Hybrid Media, Sarah Bamford with Sumi @sarahbam82; Intoxikate Radio Personality and Food Writer, Kate Schlientz with Harper @intoxikatefoodie; Founder & Creative Director of statement., Brooke Bohnsack with Duke @brookegordonbohnsack; Founder of Ruby Media Group, Kris Ruby with Caicos @krisruby; Founder of New View PR, Elisa Gorman with Buddy @elisagorman; Publicist, Rachel Lampen with Louis @only1rara; Fashion Designer, Katie Fong with Tucker @katiefongbiglin; Beauty Entrepreneur and Miss Connecticut USA 2017, Olga Litvinenko with Leo @the_olga_litvinenko; Greenwich Real Estate Agent, Suzy Armstong with Coco @suzyarm; Business Owner and Interior Designer, Mari Boltone with Rambo and Daisy @maribinteriors; and Makeup Artist, Nina DeGiglio with (Dylan Armstorng's dog) Charlie  @ninadegigliomakeup. 
 
The Campaign was produced by a team that donated their time and talent throughout March and April. Salon Owner, Paulo Lanfredi, opened his new space on Greenwich Avenue to host each photo shoot, Lanfredi also helped with hairstyling. Makeup was provided by Kathleen Fillion who used a cruelty-free cosmetic brand, Chantecaille, and wardrobe styling was provided by Penny Goffman, the founder of Jolie Gotique. "I couldn't have pulled this Campaign off without the help of Angelique Adelina, she was by my side at each shoot capturing it all on video. Her company Starr Films has produced many award-winning short films and her guidance was a huge support. Everyone on this team played a very important role, I couldn't be more grateful for their advice, time and patience. It is truly amazing how the bond between humans and dogs can motivate such incredible teamwork" said Bamford. She continued, "The main goal for the #StopTheTorture campaign is to start a conversation, motivate our audiences to educate themselves and above all, support an organization that is leading the fight to end the global abuse and torture of dogs and inhumane treatment of all animals. Everyone working on this project provided a lot and did it with their whole heart, I know we're going to make an impact."

Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Crosby at The Ridgefield Playhouse on June 12 https://news.hamlethub.com/lewisboro/events/1517-two-time-rock-and-roll-hall-of-famer-david-crosby-at-the-ridgefield-playhouse-on-june-121517-two-time-rock-and-roll-hall-of-famer-david-crosby-at-the-ridgefield-playhouse-on-june-12 https://news.hamlethub.com/lewisboro/events/1517-two-time-rock-and-roll-hall-of-famer-david-crosby-at-the-ridgefield-playhouse-on-june-121517-two-time-rock-and-roll-hall-of-famer-david-crosby-at-the-ridgefield-playhouse-on-june-12

Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and co-founder of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, David Crosby is heading to The Ridgefield Playhouse on June 12

Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and co-founder of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, David Crosby is heading out on tour! An indelible cultural touchstone for more than three generations, Crosby has collaborated with dozens of artists, including Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, Phil Collins, Elton John and Carole King and is one of the few artists to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice! Crosby is in the midst of an incredibly creative and powerful period, showcasing his skills as the brilliant songwriter that he is. On this tour, he will be performing music from his latest album Sky Trails alongside some of his best-loved songs and greatest hits.

He graces the stage at The Ridgefield Playhouse Tuesday, June 12th at 7:30pm, part of the Pepsi Rock Series powered by Xfinity. Visit The Village Tavern (378 Main Street • Ridgefield) for dinner the night of the show and enjoy a complimentary glass of house wine or draft beer with the purchase of an entree with your ticket! Media partner for this event is i95, The Home of Rock n’ Roll.

Crosby is a folk-rock pioneer and was inducted into the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009. He has also served as our social conscience, not only eloquently writing about societal issues on such songs as “Almost Cut My Hair” and “Wooden Ships,” but continuously donating concert proceeds to like-minded causes (a portion of your ticket purchase will benefit one of the artist’s causes.) His towering influence and brilliant ability to capture the spirit of our times in his music remains undiminished. His latest album Sky Trails has garnered critical success with Rolling Stone stating that the album, “...affirms this late-career marvel's almost uncanny ability to reconcile his youthful inspiration and ideals with mature wisdom.” Joining him on stage will be five musical friends, James Raymond on keys, Mai Agan on bass, Steve DiStanislao on drums, Jeff Pevar on guitar and Michelle Willis on keys and vocals.

David Crosby formed The Byrds with Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke, winning widespread recognition for his songwriting and charismatic presence. Driven by hits including "Eight Miles High," "Turn! Turn! Turn!," and a cover of Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man," The Byrds' signature electric folk-rock influenced countless musicians. Crosby left The Byrds in 1967 to embark on a lifelong collaboration with Graham Nash and Stephen Stills. Renowned for vocal harmonies, stellar musicianship and timeless songs, Crosby, Stills, & Nash (CSN) have been called "the voice of a generation," and were Grammy-honored in 1969 as Best New Artist. The trio's self-titled debut album introduced classics including the Crosby-penned tracks "Guinnevere" and "Wooden Ships"—today, it is included on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
