This Weeks Events: Meetings on Trash, Public Safety and the North End Chamber of Commerce

With daylight saving time coming next weekend, this could possibly be the last week where it will be dark outside when you leave work. This week marks the anniversary of the Boston Massacre and a reenactment will take place over the weekend.  Monday night will see a hearing on what many North End residents consider to be the modern-day massacre in the North End – that of course, would be the trash pickup procedures in the neighborhood. The North End Public Safety meeting will be joined this week with meetings from the North End Chamber of Commerce, NEWRA’s Parks Committee and a featured party for Maiti Nepal. Enjoy the week and stay warm!
