Greenway Conservancy Celebrates Rose F. Kennedy’s Birthday

Note: The Rolling Teapot and Party will be at the Greenway North End Parks at 3:00 pm on Thursday, July 22nd. Below is the full schedule.


Happy Birthday Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy!

On Thursday July 22nd, 2010 join the Greenway Conservancy in celebrating the legacy of Rose F. Kennedy’s with a Birthday Celebration themed after the story of Peter Reynold’s Rose’s Garden. Come down to the Greenway to see Rose’s Rolling Teapot, a colorful, eight-foot replica of the fictional character Rose’s Teapot.  The Teapot will begin rolling around 11AM at the Dewey Square Farmers Market.  From there it will travel along the Greenway, making stops at the Boston Children’s Museum at 11:30AM, The New England Aquarium at 1PM, and the Rings Fountain.  It will end its journey in the North End Parks with family-friendly activities including storybook reading, lawn games, and food from 3 to 5PM.  Children and adults at each location are invited to make paper flowers to add to the Teapot with a story of how they’ve come to the city or a message for the future.

If you can’t join us on the Greenway, come to the JFK Library and Museum from 12-2PM where Peter H. Reynolds will read and sign copies of Rose’s Garden.
