One of the best things about moving to a new place is getting to know the neighborhood. We are settling into our new headquarters and enjoying getting to know the very vibrant neighborhood of
Dudley Square. This is a dynamic community with plenty of local pride and a lot of action: everyone’s whispering about the City’s upcoming work at the Ferdinand Blue Store, Elder Services of Greater Boston is nearing completion of a brand new residential building, and venerable buildings like the Eustis Street Fire House , are once again being put to use. We’ve been discovering unique shops like Hamill Gallery of African Art and lunch venues like Haley House and meeting new friends along the way.
We are eager to share this with the
Dudley Square community and many of you who supported us through years of advocacy and a long and complicated development process. Please join us for a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Open House on Wedensday, October 5th starting at 10:30 a.m. We will show off the rehabilitated former fire house and showcase the neighboring Eliot Burying Ground which we will help the City manage going forward. Both places have been off limits to the public for so long that many curious neighbors have been dropping in to learn more.
Come celebrate and learn more about our new neighborhood on October 5th. Lunch will be served. Our special guests include Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, local elected officials, our generous funders and many neighbors – old and new.
