On a beautiful fall day on October 26, we worked alongside 25 volunteers to green (and brown) our 3 squares of Jackson, Hyde, and Canary with fresh mulch, daffodil bulbs, perennial plants, soil, and more mulch. Jackson Square received 450 daffodil bulbs in front of the Welcome Mural to come up strong in the spring, Mozart Park received perennials and decorative fall accoutrements such as pumpkins and hay bales, Canary Square received a pumpkin, and the entire corridor from Jackson to Canary received fresh mulch on 90 street tree wells.
We were grateful that everyone pitched in and took pride in their work. After all the physical work, we were able to restore ourselves by a community lunch at Latino Restaurant. We are appreciative of the love that everyone gave to the neighborhood and can't wait to do this again in April.
Annual Meeting 2019
We had a fun time at our Annual Meeting on October 17 and wow, was that food great from Jamaica Mi Hungry. Thank you to everyone who turned out to meet others, learn about our work, and inquire about volunteer opportunities.
At the Meeting (it was not really a meeting, but a place to meet others), we presented our Three Squares Main Street re-branding process, outlined past successes, briefly touched on upcoming work, and welcomed new board member, Rosa Herrero, to our team.
We are looking forward to a fun and productive year to make our business district strong, vibrant, resilient, and interactive.
Movies in Mozart
On two beautiful Saturday evenings in August and September we showed family movies, had kids activities, and provided snacks and treats to attendees in Mozart Park. We presented Lego Movie 2: The Second Part on August 24 and Enchanted on September 7.
Kids loved making slime and working on arts and crafts and enjoying the snacks provided by Pimentel Market and Stop & Shop. We also heard enthusiastic comments such as, "This was the best movie EVER," which made us extremely happy.
Thanks to the City of Boston's Parks and Recreation Department for continuing to maintain the park and being responsive when needed. Thank you to Pimentel Market at 340B Centre Street and Stop & Shop at 301 Centre Street for bringing delicious refreshments, snacks, fruit, and ice cream to each movie, and to all the volunteers who helped set up, make slime and decorative frames, and put things away for the evening.
Teatro en el Parque
We had an amazing three shows of Teatro en el Parque on July 18th, 19th, and 20th with incredible heart-felt and comedic performances by Escena Latina Teatro performing Prohibido Suicidarse en Primavera (It is Forbidden to Commit Suicide in the Spring).
Annual Party 2019
Come celebrate our continual growth and bloom on Centre Street in Hyde & Jackson Squares!
