The Boston Social Media Club had a terrific time rowing the Charles on Tuesday, June 3, 2014, complements of Community Rowing, one those unique and special organizations that makes you proud to be a resident of Greater Boston.
Sharanya Subramanian gave us a tour of the facility and instructor Kate Smith got us up and running in no time. Either Kate is an excellent fibber or we really WERE pretty solid rowers. Either way, we all felt quite proud of ourselves.
CRI’s rowing season runs from early April to mid-October each year. The organization works with people of all ages and from all walks of life. Disabled veterans, overweight kids, blind people and people with special needs are able to take advantage of the opportunity to get out on the open water and row with others, enjoying the sights and sounds of the Charles River. Kate’s graduate work focuses on the therapeutic potential of rowing to help people. Once you get out there yourself, you’ll know what she’s talking about.
Community Rowing also offers special programs for corporate outings. Organizations can even split into teams and race against each other. Wouldn’t it be gratifying to see the digital marketing team beat the pants off of the finance department? Here’s your chance! Check out CommunityRowing.org for more information.

What’s more social than beer? On Monday, Dec. 16, the Boston Social Media Club got together at Hopster’s Brew and Boards in Newton, a custom brewing and entertainment establishment that owner Lee Cooper launched just a few months ago with a Kickstarter campaign. Lee and social media experts from the brewing world – Lee Movic from Craft Beer Cellar, Tommy Michienzi of Craft Brewers Guild, and Joseph Lima representing Foolproof Brewing - talked about how they are leveraging social content channels to attract new customers and keep old ones in a friendly discussion moderated by Doug Haslam.
