Wednesday, October 16, 6:30 pm – Friends of the Public Garden Members Reception


The Friends of the Public Garden invites you to a Members Reception on Wednesday, October 16, beginning promptly at 6:30 pm, at the Union Club, 8 Park Street in Boston.  The talk will begin promptly and the reception will follow.  During this unprecedented season of political change in Boston, come hear national parks leader Tupper Thomas speak about the critical role citizens can play to ensure the revitalization, protection, and well being of their parks.  Tupper was Administrator of Brooklyn, New York’s Prospect Park for 30 years, during which time the park was restored to its former glory.  She is a founding member of City Parks Alliance, a national urban parks advocacy organization, and an inspiring spokesperson for parks.  Those lucky enough to attend a past Boston Committee luncheon will attest to the power of Ms. Thomas as a speaker.  The event is free for members, but please rsvp as space is limited.  Email by Friday, October 11 at info@friendsofthepublicgarden.org, or call 617-723-8144.  Your membership can be renewed at this event.  Lead sponsor of the reception is Motor Mart Garage.
