Mark your calendars - next Saturday come join your neighbors as Eight Streets takes part in Boston Shines. This year we'll be cleaning out Watson park, as well as the alleys between Shawmut and Bone, and Shawmut and Taylor. We'll also give a hand where we can with cleanups going on in Ringgold and Peters parks. The city will provide bags and tools (ad hopefully some gloves) - we just need the manpower.
Join us and help put a Shine on the southern end of our neighborhood. After the cleanup, Friends on Ringgold is hosting a pot luck and plant sale in the park from 11:30-2
A Flier for the Boston Shines cleanups can be found here.
Speaking of Watson Park, the city has arranged for an in-park community meeting. The BRA ad Parks Dept. will be there, so we hope to get an update on the status of transferring the park to Parks. The meeting is this Wednesday at 6pm in the park. We hope abutters and interested neighbors can attend.
The South End Forum has created a presence on Facebook. They have a Page for announcement and such, and a Group which is an open community board where anyone can post. Visit both if you'd like to keep up on South End-wide information
