Beacon Hill Meet & Greet Celebrates Three Years!
In 2016, Mark Kiefer, then President of the BHCA, had the idea of creating a monthly get together for BHCA members and their neighbors to share in a relaxed and congenial environment. It has become the most popular regular event of the BHCA, and many friendships were forged in those first months that are still going strong. Part of its popularity is due to the delicious hors d’oeuvres and the friendly service of Betsy Toczko!
The Beacon Hill Meet & Greet is held every first Monday of the month from 6-8 pm. Come join us!
Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program Clothing Drive a Huge Success
Many thanks to all our Beacon Hill neighbors who gave so generously to the recent BHCA clothing drive to benefit the work of Dr. Jim O’Connell and his patients at BHCHP. The clothes were delivered by BHCA volunteers to their Albany Street location last week, where they will be put to good use keeping our homeless population warm in these winter months. In addition, Rachel Thurlow, BHCA Director and Chair of the Cambridge Street Committee, gathered over 30 friends recently to assemble 50 winter kits filled with socks, hats, gloves and toiletries for Dr. Jim’s patients as well. Thanks to all!
