Hospital Survey Results
10/2/2019 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Our partnership with Boston Architectural College’s (BAC) Gateway Initiative Program was initiated by the Friends of Fellsmere Heights (FoFH) in September 2018 to assist the Malden City Council and Medford City Council ad hoc hospital review committees with community-based, rather than developer-driven, redevelopment options for the former Malden Hospital.
 In addition to a November 2018 BAC public meeting, an online survey was conducted from December 30, 2018 to June 2, 2019 to solicit input regarding community-based redevelopment options and to consider community priorities for the abandoned hospital property. The survey results as well as the resulting BAC options will be presented.

Muscari - Mediterranean Music Cafe Aman Style

7:30 PM
John and Christina Markey Malden Senior and Community Center
Muscari, a band of five world-class musicians united by a passion for the authentic music of the Mediterranean, borrow from the Café Aman era in song and spirit as they blend music from Turkey, Armenia, Greece, Cyprus, and other Mediterranean influences. Burcu Güleç (vocals), Melissa Lund (oud), George Lernis (percussion), Mal Barsamian (clarinet), and Panos Aivas (Kanoun) perform the complex rhythms and haunting melodies of regional music on traditional instruments. They love to unite different communities through music. You will find yourself dancing, clapping and singing along.

Movie Night at the Library
10/16/2019 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Join us for Movie Night at the Malden Public Library. We will be showing a recent movie about a lonely widow named Greta who befriends a young, naïve woman in New York City. This psychological thriller stars Isabelle Huppert, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Stephen Rea. Frances (Moretz) finds a handbag on the NYC subway and returns it to its owner, Greta (Huppert), an eccentric French piano teacher, who charms Frances into a friendship that becomes increasingly disturbing. The New York Times calls the movie “…a skillfully executed psychological thriller…” and The New Yorker writes that the film has “…a satisfying sense of fear and tension.…” This film is free and open to the public and is accessible. Movie times are approximate. Please call the Malden Public Library at 781-324-0218 for more information.
Rated R (98 min.)

Malden Works Community Meeting
10/21/2019 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Malden Works is a new project on the Malden River. We are building a coalition of community leaders of color, youth, environmental advocates, and government officials as well as designers-eager for community input. With your help, the Malden River waterfront can become a park for public enjoyment and recreation. We also will improve our river's wildlife habitat and our city's flood resiliency. This is a public kick-off event to begin the community conversation about the future of Malden's waterfront. Alexie Torres, a nationally sought-after speaker, will begin the evening program. She will share her story of creating a community-driven movement to revitalize parks along the Bronx River. This project builds off of the City's Open Space and Recreation Plan and is made possible through a generous grant from the MIT Norman B. Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism, which has awarded the Malden Works team with the first ever Norman B. Leventhal City Prize for equitable resilience.

Arts Matter Day
10/25/2019 3:00 PM - 8:00 PM
This is a spontaneous initiative, in tandem with the statewide #ARTSMATTERDAY campaign, put together by a number of local organizations and volunteers/artists who are eager to highlight the arts as a key feature of Malden - something to treasure, celebrate, and support.
We are looking for artists and performers of all disciplines and from all cultures to help celebrate the array of artistic and cultural expressions that exist in and around Malden by showing or selling artwork, performing, or facilitating interactive art experiences 3 to 8pm on Friday October 25. Participating artists/performers can sketch on the street, exhibit artwork on an easel or table, give a performance, play music to passersby, sell your artwork/crafts, offer interactive art experiences, etc.

Prescription Drug Take Back Day
10/26/2019 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Malden PD and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 18th opportunity in nine years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to Malden Police Headquarters at 800 Eastern Ave. (We cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.
