Decorating the Hill Is Sunday

This weekend neighbors will be out on the the various streets of Beacon Hill with ladders and garlands and bows to decorate the lamp posts. This annual tradition is a lot of fun and transforms our streets into a winter wonderland. We are printing the notice from the Beacon Hill Civic Association and urge all who can help out to please do so:

The Beacon Hill Civic Association would like to thank all of you who come out year after year to help us hang the garlands and bows on all of Beacon Hill’s lamp poles. To those of you who haven’t, give it a try – this is a great community event not to be missed. Join us this Saturday and Sunday, December 7 and 8.
Here’s the drill:

First go to to print out the written directions – even if you think you will remember how to do it!

Then click Sign Up on their homepage to let the BHCA know how, when and where you would like to help.

Or, just drop by the following places and they will put you right to work! (If you have or can get a ladder, that’s even better.)

Saturday, December 7: Between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. come to the Harrison Gray Otis House, 141 Cambridge Street, to cut and wire the laurel garlands, package the bows or get a head start on decorating the gas lamp poles.
Sunday, December 8:  Between 12 noon and 5:00 p.m., come to the parking lot next to Savenor’s on Charles Street. Get loaded up with garlands and bows, and you will be sent where you are needed the most.

Come to BHCA’s festive thank-you pizza party at 5 p.m. on Sunday at 74 Joy Street.  Refreshments and other treats will be served to celebrate the efforts of all the volunteers in decorating the neighborhood. Additional information can be found at
