Hello, JP. I hope everyone had a great beginning of summer over the weekend. Here’s your Morning Memo for all things JP for Monday, June 23.
Comedian Jimmy Tingle at Doyle’s: The well-known comedian returns to Doyle’s on Thursday for a fundraiser to support the Ward 19 Democratic Committee. 7 p.m. Thursday at Doyle’s, 3484 Washington St. $25.
Pedestrians Die in Back Bay Crash: This didn’t happen in JP, but in case you missed it, a young couple died over the weekend after the two were hit after cars collided at Beacon and Fairfield.
One Dead, One Injured in Egleston Shooting: Closer to home, police say one 24-year-old man is dead and another wounded in a shooting at School and Arcadia streets in the early hours of Sunday. We’ll be following the story today and bring you more as we know it.
Celebrate The Trees of the Emerald Necklace: One of the great things about JP is how many parks and trees we have. That’s no accident — it’s taken lots of work over the decades and centuries. Learn more about the neighborhood’s trees and what you can do to protect and nurture them at a presentation by Kyle Zick of the Olmsted Tree Society. 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Hunnewell Building, Arnold Arboretum, 125 Arborway.
Neighborhood Council: The JP Neighborhood Council, a (mostly) elected advisory board, holds its monthly meeting of the full council on Tuesday. Items on the agenda include electing community members to a new committee on development in Forest Hills. 7 p.m. Tuesday, Farnsworth House, 90 South St.
Have a good day, JP.
