October and November are busy months for the BHCA as we get ready for the holidays. Mark your calendars and join us at these special community activities!

Halloween on the Hill, Thursday, October 31st, 4:30-7:30 pm

Garlands & Greens, Wednesday, November 13th, 6-9 pm

It’s that time of year again as we get ready to decorate the 1,100 gas lamps all over Beacon Hill for the holidays. Garlands & Greens, a favorite neighborhood tradition, will take place on Wednesday, November 13th, at the Hampshire House. Now in its twenty-fourth year (and the 20th year of decorating the entire hill!), Tom Kershaw will once again be our gracious host for this annual event to raise funds for the garlands and bows to adorn the lampposts. Drinks, delicious hors d’oeuvres, holiday music, and fabulous prizes from our local businesses are sure to make this a special night. Get your tickets in advance at for this sell-out event and be a part of holiday decorating. $35 BHCA members, $40 non-members.

First Friday Coffee Hour

First Friday Coffee Hour is back starting next Friday, November 1st. We encourage our members to come and bring a neighbor – learn what the BHCA is up to, bring your questions and concerns – while enjoying coffee and donuts! At 74 Joy Street, 8-9am.
