Hello neighborhood, here’s your Morning Memo for all things JP for Thursday, May 29.
Add Great Art to Your Life, Support the Music Festival: On Sunday it’s the single biggest fundraiser for one of JP’s great events —— the JP Music Festival. “Art4Music” will be held at James’s Gate, 5 McBride St., on Sunday from 1-5 p.m. You can RSVP at this Facebook page. And here’s a gallery of the great local art available in the silent auction.
Emily Rooney Stepping Down from “Greater Boston”: One of the city’s best civic affairs programs will be getting a new host come January.
Yes, Boston is Growing Fast: Boston Business Journal has an interesting report on new Census numbers that show the state as a whole added 130,000 residents in the last three years — and that 25,000 of those came to Boston. And of course we’re feeling that here in JP. For instance, the Neighborhood Council is looking for residents to help with a committee to address the mushrooming growth in Forest Hills, where more than 1,000 housing units are likely to be built through 2018.
Have a great day, JP.
