About Brighton
map
The area of Brighton was established in the late 17th century and was first known as "Little Cambridge". The residents acquired legal separation from Cambridge in 1807 and officially named the town Brighton. The town was then officially annexed to the City of Boston in 1874 and it remains a part of Boston today.

In post colonial days Brighton was home to agricultural plots and stockyards, but with the extension of the street car lines in the 1800s came residential growth. Soon houses and apartments were built all across the neighborhoods.

Brighton is primarily populated by graduate students and young professionals. Along Washington Street you will find small family businesses and Saint Elizabeth's Hospital - reputed as one of the finest hospitals in the northeast.

Brighton is host to the Bryman Institute, Saint John's Seminary and part of Boston College. Nearby you will find some of the finest institutes of higher learning in the country including Boston University, Harvard University and MIT.

CPA/Accountant Post April 15th Network Meetup (Free CPEs)
Now that we have gotten through the tax season, let's dine, network and learn while earning valuable CPE credits  by attending the 2016 Feldman Forum.  On Thursday, April 28, from 1:00-5:00 PM Eastern, New York Life will present the 2016 Feldman Forum, a one-of-a-kind educational and networking opportunity co-sponsored by The American College.  I am hosting this event at the Providence House, 180 Corey Road, Brighton, MA and would like to extend an invitation to all weary CPAs and Accountants to join me. The title of this year’s program is, “Strategic planning for various levels of wealth.”   The presenters will discuss estate and business planning, tax and legal issues, and the use of life insurance as it relates to clients with estates valued at $2 million, $8 million, and $20 million. And there will be plenty of opportunities to network with other industry professionals. The Providence House will be hosting a pre-forum gourmet luncheon at 11:30am so we can relax and discover the options your clients have to make assisted living affordable.  The lunch will be followed at 1pm by a presentation of the 2016 Feldman Forum. You also may receive continuing education credit – in Massachusetts, the Feldman Forum has been approved for 4.0 hours of CPE credits for CPAs in the category “taxes,” and an additional 3 hours of CPE credit for IRS enrolled agents. (4 CFP Credits and 4 Insurance Credits as well) Seating will be limited, so please RSVP by April 25, 2016 or contact me at 617-820-2534 if you’d like more information.  If you’d prefer to register online, go to http://www.nyladvisors.com/2016FF and select my venue location – The Providence House in Brighton, MA.

Film Screening & Discussion FUNDRAISER for Korean Unwed Mothers Families Association (KUMFA)
More: Our event website Our event on facebook Our crowd funding campaign KADtalk Boston & Korean Cultural Society of Boston invite you, and your friends and family, to Harvard University to learn about the situation facing unwed (never married) mothers in South Korea at a film screening and discussion FUNDRAISER for an organization in South Korean called Korean Unwed Mothers Families Association (KUMFA). KUMFA was founded by unwed mothers in 2009 to get unwed moms the support and resources they need to keep and raise their babies rather than have to succumb to societal stigma and give them up for adoption. EVENT SCHEDULE "Bittersweet Joke" the first film to show the lives & faces of unwed mothers and their children in Korea. POST-FILM DISCUSSIONS 1. A panel of Korean adoptees will talk about why they support KUMFA & unwed mothers in South Korea Moderated by Arissa Oh, Boston College Associate Professor & author of To Save The Children of Korea: The Coldwar Origins of International Adoption. 2. Q&A Skype from Korea with Mok Kyoung-hwa, KUMFA director & Shannon Heit, a Korean-American adoptee KUMFA volunteer Moderated by Paul Yunsik Chang, Harvard University Assistant Professor of Sociology Currently, 90% of the over 1,000 babies that are sent from Korea each year are those of unwed mothers. This is happening now--in 2007 the Ministry of Health and Welfare said 96 out of 100 pregnancies of unwed women in Korea end in abortion. Only 4 give birth. Three out of those four will eventually be forced to give up their child due to economic difficulties and social discrimination that makes it nearly impossible for unwed mothers to support their children in Korean society. With this fundraiser we are trying to change that; to show the world unwed mothers deserve the love and support other families receive, to try and abolish some of the shame associated with unwed motherhood, to support keeping families together. Please come enjoy some food, learn about the stigma unwed mothers face in South Korea and help us raise some money for KUMFA! Bring your friends, parents, relatives, co-workers--bring everyone! Event homework: If you have time read Arissa Oh's book to understand the historical context and the connection between Korean adoption and unwed mothers!
