Today marked an amazing day for all of us here at FoHP! The day started with a wonderful article posted on the ARTery, WBUR's arts & culture blog. Be sure to check it out here: http://bit.ly/FoHP.
THEN, we were notified that Greater Greener Boston, focussing on greenways and placemaking & funded through the Barr Foundation, generously donated another $10,000 toward this endeavor!
And last, but not least, our website went live! YAY! Now, what will tomorrow bring?!
We did it! We broke the seal on 2017! We held our first clean-up day & boy, was it COLD! On Saturday, March 11th, ten committed community volunteers braved the freezing temperatures and joined the Charles River Conservancy for a chilly Herter Park Theatre cleanup. Originally scheduled from 9 am - 12 pm, a high of 23 degrees ended the event about an hour early. But in two hours, volunteers where able to get a lot done! Work included pruning branches obstructing pathways, removing dead limbs, and cutting back invasive multiflora rose. Thank you to all who came out!!! See you at the next one?
