Posted onAuthorMatt ContiComments Off on Celebrating the Season with the North End Beautification Committee
The North End Beautification Committee celebrated the season by decorating Hanover Street with a Christmas tree and other decorations at the corner of Cross Street. Santa was on hand for the kids and free hot chocolate was provided by Caffe Paradiso. St. John School students held a bake sale while carols were played by local trumpeter Victor Brogna.
The North End Beautification Committee wishes to thank the businesses and residents who provided funds for the tree and plants that created the festive atmosphere. The committee has also installed wreaths with bows on the light poles of many streets in the neighborhood. Members of the NEBC include Patricia Thibotout, Allison Seavey, Sarah Doracaj and Diane Mustone.
