Editor's Note: For all events on Tuesday evening and early Wednesday, please call first to check to see if they are open, due to the storm.

National handwriting day is coming up on Jan. 23, and R. J. Julia has booked an event that looks like it will be perfect for that.

Also coming up this week at the Madison Beach Hotel, celebrate the Chinese New Year. As you might expect from Madison Beach Hotel, the food looks amazing and every course is paired with a different wine. There will be mini-pork Bahn-Mi, hamachi sashimi, Vietnamese pho, grilled prawn, and coconut tapioca with mango-chili sorbet, sesame brittle, and cilantro syrup to finish it off. 

Have you mastered motherhood yet? Jennifer Chapman says a ministry at Christ Chapel in Madison is helping her do so. "I just love mastering motherhood, it is my sanity every week in the craziness of mothering 4 children. I am truly a better mom because of mastering motherhood, the other moms and the books we discuss inspire and educate me to be an incredible mom. I can not imagine raising my kids without mastering motherhood on Thursday mornings! Can not wait till the next session starting Jan 23rd!"

[Editor's Note: This has been postponed until Jan. 30 due to the storm] January 27 marks the 69th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. To mark the occasion, the Shoreline office of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven, Shoreline Hadassah and The Grove School are sponsoring a showing of Nicky’s Family, a Menemsha film that tells the nearly forgotten story of Nicholas Winton, an Englishman who organized the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children just 
before the outbreak of World War II.
