The Lexington Minute Men are dedicated to honoring those brave Patriots who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our Nation's freedom.

From those who first fell on Lexington Green, to the heroes of today, we hope to continue telling the story of American Independence.

Those who join our company will enjoy reenacting 18th century life as a soldier in the militia and the Continental Army. We also participate in many ceremonial activities including parades, inaugural events, dedications, trade shows, and more.

We consider ourselves historians and enthusiastically and meticulously research our time period and those we represent.

For the history buff don't forget about the Freedom Trail in Boston

Freedom Trail

The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mi path through downtown Boston, Massachusetts, that passes by 16 locations significant to the history of the United States. Marked largely with brick, it winds between Boston Common to the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown. Stops along the trail include simple explanatory ground markers, graveyards, notable churches and buildings, and a historic naval frigate. While most of the sites are free or suggest donations, the Old South Meeting House, the Old State House, and the Paul Revere House charge admission. The Freedom Trail is overseen by the City of Boston's Freedom Trail Commission and is supported in part by grants from various nonprofits and foundations, private philanthropy, and Boston National Historical Park.

907 Main St, Waltham, MA 02451 ·

Acupuncture originated in China over 3,000 years ago. It is part of the holistic system of healing known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). 

Acupuncture has proven to be a holistic, safe and effective remedy for many medical conditions.  Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of very fine needles at specific points on the body. This process stimulates movement of energy within the body, allowing natural healing to take place. Acupuncture practitioners are trained to select these points, based on over 3,000 years of experience in China.

Acupuncture helps to prevent illness by improving the overall functioning of the body's immune and organ systems. Acupuncture is helpful for treating existing illnesses and injuries, preventing both recurrence of illnesses and new illness and improving overall health.

Our Clinic is conveniently located in Waltham, MA. We have successfully used acupuncture to help hundreds of patients around Boston area.

In the West, acupuncture is most well-known for its ability to relieve pain so the majority of research thus far has been done in this area. Acupuncture points are now believed to stimulate the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) to release pain-relieving chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord and brain. Acupuncture may also stimulate other chemicals to be released by the brain, including hormones that influence the self-regulating system of the body.

About the Lesson Program

Matlock Farm is geared towards giving students the results they aspire to, whether trail riding, riding for fun, or competitive showing.  No matter what your goal is we can help you achieve it in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment.  Riders start out by learning the basics of balance and coordination by doing numerous exercises and fun games.  We then move you on to more challenging workouts to really challenge the mind and body to get the confidence you need.  All disciplines of riding are based on balance-seat riding.

Learn to Fly

East Coast Aero Club | New England's Largest Flight School

Understanding the flight training process can be quite baffling. This section should hopefully give you an insight into the various stages associated with the pursuit of a Private Pilot Certificate, from initial interest to issuance of your certificate.

Step 1: Take an Introductory Flight

If you are interested in learning to fly, an introductory flight is the first logical step. During your first flight, an experienced flight instructor will take you through an abbreviated lesson from preflight to tie down. You will have the opportunity to taxi the airplane and once at altitude, you will have what will likely be your first experience with flying an airplane. This will also be the first entry in your pilot logbook, as the flight time counts towards a private pilot certificate.

Step 2: Post-Flight Evaluation

Once you have completed the introductory flight you should evaluate whether you think flying is for you. For those who truly believe they want to fly, but found the first flight a bit nerve-racking, we recommend taking a few lessons. Flying in small airplanes is usually a new experience for most people and often a few flights will allow a person to become accustomed to the unique sensations that lie at the root of many a pilots’ passion for flying small aircraft.

East Coast Aero Club is committed to being your flight training partner and helping your dreams of becoming a pilot take flight!  Please review the following flight training programs we offer from both our Bedford, MA

East Coast Aero Club offers three convenient locations that serve the entire Boston metro area as well as Southern New Hampshire.  All operations are conducted at active General Aviation airports with operating air traffic control towers that are easily accessible by major highways and easy to find.
