Boston Shines Saturday

An update on Boston Shines from Cam, who's coordinating it, is below. We'd thank to thank all of the local businesses who donated food for the party afterwards. Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday.

The pre-clean up planning is going well. This year so far we have flour for pastries in the morning. Sagarinos for morning muffins, coffee, Kimball Borgo Real Estate at 21 Wormwood is giving us wine for the party, Luckys is donating pizza and beer, Salvatore's is sending soft drinks and 5 pizzas, (for expert comparison of course), St. Alphonzo's Kitchen's famous mac and cheese, LTK clam chowder- a gallon!

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. Many thanks to Jennifer Amadeo-Holl for rounding up 10 volunteers to help mulching trees along A street.

We will start at 9:00 AM Saturday April 26th. The city will tow cars on A Street, so Anthony at CB Richard Ellis is looking into parking for Sat. It's tricky because of the filming this weekend but he's working on a spot for us. Stay tuned. We will post alternate parking signs on the Street. (Need help with that too).

There are two meeting places, one in front of 300 Summer and one on A Street in front of Channel Center.

Several members of the Fort Point Neighborhood Association are helping with coordination, as well as other residents. If you want to join us give me a call at 617-797-2307. We still desperately need someone from 300 Summer to help with distribution of tools, etc.

The after party will be in the little park on Binford Street in front of 35 Channel Center. It was to start at 7 but it will be chilly by then, so set up will be 4:-4:30 and party will start at 4:30 or as soon as the food is out :-)

Hope you can join us! This is just the kind of event that brings all the populations of the community together.
