Hyde Jackson Monthly
January 30, 2019

For almost 21 years we have been our business district's ambassador and collaborator with residents, the City of Boston, community groups, and individual businesses. Of course we love the Hyde Jackson business district and value all of our assets here. Love your district too this Valentine's Day.

Inside This Newsletter


GiveLoveValentineGive Love this Valentine's Day    

Show love & support businesses on Valentine's Day  

This Valentine's Day, show your love of local businesses in Hyde & Jackson Squares by making dinner plans, buying balloons and cards, purchasing food to prepare a delicious meal at home, or maybe even booking a trip to an exotic location. We have it all here for you from a wide variety of restaurants, stores selling small gifts, food markets, and travel agents.  
Valentine's Day is a big day for many of our merchants, especially since it falls during the slow January - March winter season. Support our merchants and leave a heart bomb for them. Any hearts (paper or otherwise) posted on the outside of a store window of a business on February 14 will be entered into a raffle to win a gift certificate to that store or restaurant. Just leave your name and phone number on the back of the heart. More information about this can be found on our website


Holiday Window Contest winners 
Congratulations to Tails for coming in first place for our 2018 Holiday Window Contest. Winners of 3 out of the last 5 years, Tails designed a frosty and beautiful winter display of reindeer and evergreens. Tails beat our 4 other contest finalists through online voting and by phone.  
We'd like to thank all the Centre Street participating businesses and residences and offer congratulations as well to Cappy's Pizza, El Oriental de Cuba, The Frogmore Restaurant, and Ultra Beauty Salon. 
MLK Day of Service
On a cold, cold Martin Luther King Day last week, we set out to give back and clear crosswalks of ice and snow so residents could walk the district better with less fear of falling. This was our MLK Day of Service to Hyde & Jackson Squares and it turned a cold day into a warm one with a great workout.  
Many thanks to our tough and hearty volunteers for making the business district accessible for all.
