Hyde Jackson Monthly
April 24, 2019


We are excited to get our hands dirty with you to prepare our neighborhood for a spring and summer full of activities. Much of what we do is directly related to keeping the business district fresh and economically sound. Another objective is to connect residents, business owners, and property owners with each other to strengthen our district network so we support each other. A stronger, sustainable network translates to a more solid, vibrant, economically strong district.

Sustain our network and connect with your neighbors this Saturday at our Mulchcapade.

Our Mulch-ca-pade is this Saturday! 
Every spring we organize a team of energetic volunteers to take care of our street trees and provide more color to our Main Street district. Luckily we are always able to find a robust team to spread fresh mulch on our street trees and plant spring flowers and perennials in public spaces. Enjoy the company of others as we work to make the neighborhood smell fresh and look good.   
We'll meet at 9:00 am at Mozart Park and finish around 12:30 pm. Following up the hard work, we'll sponsor a complementary community lunch for you at one of our fine local restaurants. If there are any updates to the Mulchcapade, we will post them on our website.  
Please RSVP with us at info@hydejacksonsquare.org or call us at 617-522-3694 and let us know if you have any shovels or wheelbarrows to bring. 
5th Annual Inside Out Sidewalk Fair on May 18! 
Next month on Saturday, May 18 is when our merchants and restaurateurs bring their products and food from inside of their businesses to the sidewalk. They'll take over the space in front of their storefronts and show off their broad array of goods, diverse food offerings, and life-assisting services. Enjoy local street musicians, balloon artists, face painters and more as you stroll Centre Street looking for good deals, munch on tasty treats, and be entertained.    
A full list of participating businesses and performers will be updated on our website. 
In case of rain or inclement weather, the Fair will be held on Saturday, June 1.

Enjoyment and Awards at Our Annual Party  
To celebrate the commencement of our 21st year of local economic development in Hyde & Jackson Squares, we held our Annual Party at The Frogmore Restaurant on April 11. There we feted people who have contributed to the vibrancy of the business district and businesses that continue to give back to the community. It was a fun event and we enjoyed mixing with members of the community.  
Throughout the Party, we presented awards to people and business for their contributions over the last year:
Congratulations to Brendan Behan Pub for being awarded our 2018 Business of the Year and to Richard Parritz for being our 2018 Volunteer of the Year.
