Happy New Year to all
Looking for volunteers to remove decorations this weekend
Due to the frigid temperatures last weekend, Undecorating Days were postponed to this weekend, January 13 and 14. Volunteers are needed to remove the garlands and bows from Beacon Hill lamp posts. Please email [email protected] or call the office at 617-227-1922 to sign up.
Saturday: Volunteers are encouraged to meet by the tree in front of Tatte starting at 9:30 a.m. to form teams. Those arriving later are also welcome to join one of the teams or form new ones.
Sunday: All undecorators are invited to enjoy the food and comraderies at the Hampshire House’s popular Pancake Breakfast at 10 a.m. After the breakfast the group will head out to finish undecorating the poles.
Volunteers are asked to confirm these details by checking the BHCA website www.bhcivic.org as the weather forecast evolves.

46th Annual Beacon Hill Gala
The Beacon Hill Civic Association invites all neighbors to come in from the cold and enjoy spending an elegant evening together at the 46th annual Beacon Hill Gala, to be held at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston on Saturday, February 3. The black tie event begins with cocktails at 6:30 pm, followed by dinner at 7:30 pm, and dancing and dessert at 9:00 pm. Guests choosing to enjoy dancing and dessert only are invited to join the others at 9:00 pm for the Gala Late Night.
Tom Kershaw, the owner of Cheers, will serve as the honorary chairperson of the popular event, which supports the BHCA’s mission to preserve the historic and residential character of Beacon Hill. The Gala Committee is chaired this year by Deb Hanley, Frank McGuire and Keeta Gilmore.
