Our community-wide Peace Park unveiling on June 26th was a huge success! We had a wonderful turnout that included people from all walks of life, ages, and races. There was an enormous amount of support and love that transcended from the park, through the walk and all the way to the reception at the Knights of Columbus.
We'd like to extend a special thank you to everyone who contributed to the event and park's revitalization, including the Charlestown Boys and Girls Club, the Charlestown YMCA, the Cooperative of CharlesNewtown, the Trauma Response Team, and all of the helpful and encouraging residents and youth of Charlestown.
We would also like to thank two sponsors who helped make this revitalization possible--the Somerville Home Depot (thank you Matt!) and Mahoney's Garden Center (thank you Cindy!).
