Boston Shines Tomorrow!

Greetings Neighbors-

It’s that time again- Boston Shines is on Saturday, April 25th.
Please move your cars it would be great to get at least some of them moved from behind Channel Center and Midway, if possible so we can do some work on that area. The USPS should be cleaning it as well but no guarantees. FYI -inspectional services will be going behind those buildings in the near future to tow unregistered and abandoned cars. Gillette has offered free parking in their Binford lot starting Friday evening. Contact number is 617-463-3211, Bill Taylor.

Last year’s event was a huge success. The tree mulching team did an amazing job on our local A Street fauna, and the after party was great.

We will gather at 9AM. As always there will be coffee and pastries in the morning somewhere on Channel Center Street. There will be signs posted with the exact meeting location, and the after party will start at around 5 pm. Updated info will also be available on the FPNA website blog, Fortpointneighborhood.org. If anyone has questions or suggestions please send an email to cam.zin@verizon.net, or call 617-797-2307.

It would be helpful if a few people could transport goodies to 300 Summer, the other tool drop off and gathering site. Local restaurants (Lucky’s, Sagarinos etc) have been generous about providing snacks and beverages. So far Barbara Lynch’s Sportello has offered food for the after party, Lucky’s has given pizza and beer, Sagarinos will do coffee and pastries and wine, Salvatore’s also will send pizza and Franklin Southie will provide sandwiches. There will be other offerings announced tomorrow when we meet.

The clean up is a great opportunity to get to know new and old neighbors. We all well know this kind of commitment sends a message to stakeholders (the USPS for example) and elected officials, but that shouldn't be the only reason we buff up Fort Point Channel.

The weather is on our side!
