Past projects and events

Sharon's Park Spruce-up Day

Sharon's Park got some much needed attention Saturday, 14th October, thanks to a small crew of neighbors who cut down and cleared the overgrowth in the raised garden and pruned the Roses in the plaza section. A lot of work for a small group.

 

On behalf of all who were present at our holiday celebration on 20th December, we thank the New England Regional Council of Carpenters for hosting the event at their beautiful facility.

 

We thank Avenue Grille, Euromart, DJ’s, John Gillespie’s Dunkin Donuts, New Store on the Block, Triangle Point and Real Taco for providing the scrumptious food and refreshments. Thanks to these businesses, we had a very festive celebration complete with a fabulous assortment of dishes along with desserts, and assorted drinks. 

 

We also thank the Executive Board and Association members for providing many fine desserts, meatballs and libations.

 

In addition we thank JPA Development and Larry Wenglin who contributed to the funding 84 Christmas Wreaths on Dorchester Avenue and Boston Street. These wreath donors are in addition to those already acknowledged in the December flyer.

Sharon's Park

Spruce-up Party

 

On 9th June 2012 from 10:00AM to 2:00PM your neighbors and the Association worked with our landscape advisor to embellish the collection of plants and trees in Sharon's Park. We made a new home for annual and perennial plants, flowers and shrubs and in exchange for everyone's hard work, we enjoyed a barbecue and refreshments on the beautiful late spring day.

 

Thank you to everyone who donated their time, expertise and resources to this project.  Additional appreciation is given to South Bay Center’s Home Depot who donated a barbeque grill to the Association and the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftsmen who donates water on a weekly basis to keep our plantings healthy.  Thank you for contributing to our efforts.
