Hi my name is Karl O'Hara, owner of O’Hara’s Food & Spirits in Newton Highlands and Paddy’s Public House in West Newton. My family and I have been involved in the Newton community since we opened O’Hara’s in 1985. As a family owned and operated business, we pride ourselves on our Irish hospitality. We are committed to providing places for people in the community to enjoy delicious food and drink in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
I’m happy to be a part of the Newton community and am proud of all of the ways that Newton businesses and residents come together to support each other. I was attracted to the mission of Newton Community Pride for the same reason. Funding NCP's arts, culture and community programming allows them to execute public art and community programming that brings all residents together. I particularly like their support for live music during the summer and their support for our local restaurants by having artists paint jersey barriers and plant flowers in our planters this past spring.
It's an easy decision to financially support the work of Newton Community Pride with a donation to continue to build community through their arts & culture programming.
