Chris Herren, a basketball legend from Fall River, Massachusetts, dreamed of one day playing for his hometown team, the Boston Celtics. An All-American, Chris broke scoring records, was recruited by top colleges, featured in Sports Illustrated and became the focus of an acclaimed book, “Fall River Dreams.” Herren realized his lifelong dream of playing in the NBA when he was drafted by the Denver Nuggets in 1999 and was traded to the Celtics after his rookie season, but lost it all to substance abuse.

Alcohol and drug-free since 2008, Herren has refocused his life to put his sobriety and family above all else. He shares his harrowing story of abuses and recovery in his memoir, “Basketball Junkie,” as well as in numerous interviews through the Emmy nominated ESPN Films documentary Unguarded, of which he is the subject.

Join us for his inspiring tale of descent into addiction, miraculous recovery and his new life mission.
Open to the public.
This event is sponsored by the Mahwah Municipal Alliance and the SAMHSA grant.

Ellis Island: Gateway to a Dream
Apr. 27
10:00 am - 11:00 am

Ellis Island served as the portal for immigrants coming into the USA from 1892 to 1954. Before its closing, an estimated 12 million people passed through on their way to a new life in America. This one-hour musical geared towards young audiences captures the essence of their journey.

Six professional actors dressed in period clothing weave this intriguing tale with dialogue and songs of their experiences traveling into America. They were filled with hopes and excitement to begin new lives, and some encountered obstacles along the way. A wonderful supplement to the school curriculum, Ellis Island artfully tells the story of how our ancestors began to call America their home. Today, many U.S. citizens are descendants of those same immigrants. Because it relates to current events, audiences are in rapt attention as they relate to characters in the show.

Grades: 3 – 8 Links: Immigration Studies, Social Studies, Multicultural Studies, Music, Language Arts, Theater
