This is the second in a two part series on group treatment for people who are struggling with emotional and mental health ailments. When we last met we had finished off describing a group called the wellness group. 

The Health Integration Program is at 26 Central serving needy psychological clients. This program is mainly for Somerville and Cambridge residents. There are many groups covering a whole host of helpful recovery tools.

Before this integration program came into being; Psychiatric illnesses were treated with medication, talk therapy and a few groups. Recently the staff at 26 Central came up with a new bunch of groups covering many situations that could only help clients recover more quickly.

Months ago I happened upon a unique store. The name of this store was called practice space. At my first visit there were many things that caught my attention; such as clothing, books, art, and many quotes. these quotes were meant to lift one's spirit. So its not just a star-up store. It is a space which many customers frequent to discover what is new. The main item which I noticed more than anything else is that of the propreitors friendliness and how welcome they are all to all of their customers. Personally I like the quotes, because they certainly do lift my spirits.

The middle part of September is typically the time when the little league of the North Division rounds up the end of the year with tryouts for the minor and major league youngsters. This year was to be a just a little different. Friday was slated as the time for the Banquet and awards. Saturday was when the tryouts were to be held. So there was a glitch on friday because of a three hour rainstorm. The banquet was cancelled and both festivities haoppened on Saturday ten to fifteen eager players showed what they had to the coaches.


The Cambridge Little Baseball league held its annual all-star classic at the Tobin field adjacent to the Elementary School in West Cambridge. The teams involved were East, north, west, and central Divisions. Both the minor leagues ane the major league represented four teams.

On August 17,2017 there was an old-timer baseball game at St. Peters baseball Park in Cambridge Ma. This event happens every year and is organized by Steve Buckley. Old timer uniforms are worn by the selected young men. From the inaugural game in 1994 to 2017, there are so many people to thank in accordance with the success of this event.

I frequently visit the Central Square neighborhood of Cambridge. One place that I always see is a sign introducing the Farmers Market. I promised myself that I would shop there at some point. Finally that point in time arrived. I learned that there is a lot more to the Farmers Market than I had originally thought. My first lesson was that a Farmers Market is where farmers sell their natural products to consumers directly. They set up once or twice a week in many communities.

Every year the management puts on a barbecue for the tenants of the Inman Square Apartments. It is such a wonderful time for all of the residents and their families. Also the maintenance staff joined the party. You see, they were there to "fix" our meals The management bosses also were in attendance just to be sure that things went off without a glitch. Music was a  part of the gala festival. A young man, as the master of ceremonies chose some soothing music as was appreciated by the adults. There were scores of young children at the get together.

Inman Square in Cambridge is a  place much visited by consumers of all types. There are some banks and if you are hungry, restaurants. These eateries offer many different foods and beverages. If you are a do it yourselfer you'll find a popular Ace Hardware Store. There are even a few start ups. If pizza and sandwiches are your choice; you can indulge in that cuisine as well. If you are in need of a new hair style or a summer cut you can get that as well.
