Ashmont Adams engages in a number of community based events including family oriented activities such as a neighborhood wide block party, a Halloween Pumkin Carving, and astology nights. At our monthly meetings, members are informed on police activity, MBTA updates and other local news. Community, business, social, and politcal leaders also inform the membership of local opportunities, events, and civic happenings.

Yesterday was a beautiful day for our Flag Raising! The annual flag raising ceremony was founded by the late great Patricia O’neill, former president of AANA and after a 2 year break, we were really happy to host it again this year. Retired army veteran John Poles was given the honor of raising the flag at Rundel Park. It was exciting to see so many neighbors and kids in our post COVID world. Thanks a bunch to the group at AANA, President Cindy Fadden, Mary Kelly, Mary Beth Diener and Top chef Barry Fadden, who once again took the grill. And thanks to John Schneiderman for the video and photos.

The rain stopped so that this afternoon we can celebrate Flag Day at 3 pm. Our event is casual and family friendly, while respectful of all that the flag represents. We will also have a ceremonial burning of retired flags, so if you please bring any stars and stripes that are past their prime for proper disposition. We will wind up this all-American fest with some grilled hot dogs, soft drinks, and other treats.
We hope you can join us!

Anyone know what may have been going on very late Thursday night (around midnight) in vicinity of Gallivan/Ely/Minot and Carruth/Adams quadrant? There were a few cops cars driving around the area, up and down the streets, real SLOWWWWW with bright white 'search lights' ...almost as if they were looking for a suspect or something....

I wanted to share Greater Ashmont's second December newsletter with you, which includes info about the Dorchester Virtual Pop-Up Market; the new incoming ED, Jeanne Dasaro, who will start in January; and the Annual Appeal needed because of the inability to hold a large fundraiser per usual in 2020. https://conta.cc/34ugqsG Jeanne used lived on Beale street until a 2019 move, so many of you might know her. 🙂
We hope you will consider supporting some of these local, small business this holiday season. https://sites.google.com/view/dot-virtual-popup-market/home
