Oak Bluffs is a Cape Cod town located on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The Town of Oak Bluffs was founded as Cottage City in 1880. In 1907 the name was changed because of the fast growing population and the resort needed to recognize that is was not a "Cottage City" any more.
Oak Bluffs is home to the Flying Horses Carousel which is the nation's oldest operating carousel. The carousel is one of two known carousels built by Charles W.F. Dare in 1876.
In the center of town there are hundreds of imaginative and colorful gingerbread cottages. They are the most perfectly preserved collection of Carpenter Gothic style architecture in the world!
CBB is holding an open April vacation and Summer Camp open house. Families are welcome to come by and play with remote control boats and check out the skate boards. Kids can use tools, parents can ask questions, and everyone can have some cookies and juice.

Almost a quarter of students at Harvard are of Asian descent, yet Asians remain conspicuously absent from senior leadership positions in the workplace.
“Being Asian in America: Professional Challenges and Solutions” is a symposium that examines the trials and lessons of people who have experienced this first hand. Through keynotes and focused panel discussions, we seek to understand why this situation persists, and ultimately how we can successfully overcome these challenges in our own careers.
The symposium will also culminate in a social event for attendees and speakers, providing opportunities to meet fellow students and professionals across Harvard and beyond.
Registration will be at Longfellow Hall, Harvard Graduate School of Education, from 9-10am.
