BHCA Young Friends
The Beacon Hill Civic Association is pleased to announce that our Young Friends group has been re-energized! The group is comprised of young professionals who live on Beacon Hill, and is led by Annabel Kupke, Andrew Falacci and Michael Madigan.
The BHCA membership demographic ranges from under 30 to over 80 years old, and each section of that range is important to us. The Young Friends bring an energy and commitment to becoming civically involved that is inspiring! “There is tremendous value in knowing your neighbors”, Falacci said recently, especially in the age of smart phones and other digital distractions. All three group leaders signed up for BHCA membership to become more engaged and involved in all aspects of their community and they seek to connect with and attract like-minded young people. As Falacci said “This is another reminder of how strong a neighborhood can be when different cohorts find each other and come together as one community”.
The next Young Friends Social will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 30, from 7-9 p.m., at Harvard Gardens on Cambridge Street, and every last Wednesday of the month thereafter. The cost of a BHCA membership for 35 years and under is $30. If you’d like to learn more, the Young Friends welcome you to come to their Social, or call the BHCA office for further details.
