On September 21st, New England Baptist Hospital collaborated with the Tobin and to host the second “Senior Birthday Party” since the pandemic. Residents from all over the neighborhood were in attendance to receive a gift and lunch. A big round of applause to Yellow Door Taco’s Jarek Mountain and Colleen Hagerty, who not only brought the ingredients for their chicken tinga and charred broccoli tacos, but showed volunteers how to properly assemble the gourmet spread. The tacos were a huge hit- thank you Yellow Door Taqueria!
The Annual Mission Hill Road Race was held with over 400 registered walkers and runners. Mayor Wu was on hand to start off the walkers at 9 a.m., and was joined by Councilors-at-large Erin Murphy and Ruthzee Louijeuneee, District 8 City Councilor Sharon Durkan. Leading the speaking portion was Mission Hill’s own John Fitzgerald, currently running for the District 3 City Council seat. Another Mission Hill native Henry Santana was also in attendance, and is running for one of the four City Councilor at Large seats up for grabs this November 7th. Once again, the Mission Hill Artists Collective and their artisans set up tables in Kevin W. Fitzgerald Park during the event to sell their work. The rain held off and a great day was had by all.
