The Beacon Hill Civic Association, Beacon Hill Seminars, Congregational Library and Archives, Friends of the Public Garden and Historic New England – five hidden gems of Beacon Hill that inspire our sense of history and curiosity in learning – will take the stage at tonight’s meeting of the Beacon Hill Women’s Forum.
Lynn Dunphy, a BHWF member, will moderate a question and answer session that will highlight the nonprofits’ missions and show how members can join, support and participate in them. And, members in the market for new and interesting places to take visiting guests won’t want to miss this program.
BHWF meetings, which include appetizers and a cash bar, are held from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Hampshire House, 84 Beacon Street. The program will begin promptly at 7 pm. To attend, women from Beacon Hill and surrounding neighborhoods must first join by paying a $50 membership, according to federal guidelines for nonprofit social organizations. There is a $20 charge for each meeting. For more information, reservations or to become a member, go to beaconhillwomensforum.com.

More ways to connect in March
During March the BHWF has planned two other opportunities for members to connect, inspire and enjoy each other.
“Concealments and Revelations in the Self-Portraits of Female Painters”, a talk by Beacon Hill neighbor and art historian Liana Cheney, will focus on the nature of female’s self-portraiture in painting since the 16th century and specifically compare American and European female self portraits in the 20th century.
The talk will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18 at the Sloane Merrill Gallery, 75 Charles Street. Light refreshments will be served and donations will be accepted. No reservations are necessary and BHWF members are welcome to bring guests.
Members may also connect with each other at the monthly Feast with Friends, a $37 prixe fixe meal held at Panificio on Wednesday, March 19 beginning at 6 pm. Reservations must be made in advance at beaconhillwomensforum.com.
