Faulty boiler prompts fund-raiser

Confronted with a failing boiler, the Mother Brook Arts and Community Center is turning to residents for help. A “Heat It Up” fund-raiser involving community dinners and a dance at the facility will take place on March 1. “The boiler crisis came as a bit of a shock,” executive director Jean Ford Webb said in a statement. “We knew we took over a fixer-upper; we didn’t realize it would give out in the first year.” Event chairwoman Louisa Miller said that 25 dinners have been organized for March 1, and that rides were being arranged from the dinners to the center for the evening dance. Whole Foods will provide dessert and coffee, while the band “Men in Black 2” will play live music. Miller hopes the fund-raiser can pull in $25,000. To sign up, visit
