Thanks for coming!

We had a great time at our annual meeting and birthday bash on Monday.

Mayor Joe Curtatone came to celebrate with us, as did Aldermen Bill Roche, Dennis Sullivan, and Bill White, and Rob May from the City's Economic Development Department.

Ben Grossman from Grossman Marketing Group was a fantastic keynote speaker.

We had tasty appetizers from the Mt. Vernon

And a delicious cake from Patsy's Pastry

Musical entertainment was provided by Cesar Delcie

A good time was had by all!

Thanks so much to all the City officials who have been so supportive to East Someville Main Streets and its mission, Ben and Steve Grossman, the Mt. Vernon for hosting, Cesar Delcie for his wonderful music, all the local business owners who attended, our volunteers who set up for the event, and all the neighborhood residents and friends who came to celebrate with us!
