Good morning, neighborhood! Here's your morning memo for all things JP-related for Monday, April 7:
Jamaica Pond Assoc. Holds Annual Meeting: Monday night at 7 p.m. in the Jamaicaway Tower Community room the association, which represents neighborhood interests in Pondside, gathers for its annual meeting. The chairman tells me there isn't much that's controversial on the agenda, but it's a good time to reconnect with other residents. They'll vote on officers, too.
Bake Cupcakes for Boston Public Schools Protest: On Tuesday afternoon, Boston Public Schools parents are holding an innovative protest against budget cuts. The "Parent Bake Sale" aims to sell 61 million cupcakes at a dollar each. That's one cupcake per dollar of deficit the district faces from, parent activists say, "federal and state cuts, cost increases and enrollment miscalculations." It's down at City Hall Plaza on Tuesday from 4-6 p.m. You can bet parents from the Curley, Mendell and other JP schools will be there. For more information, email JP's own Heshan Berents-Weeramuni at email@example.com.
Library Lovers, Clear Your Calendar for Wednesday Night: A big moment in Jamaica Plain history has arrived — the opportunity to help shape the long-delayed renovation of the Jamaica Plain Branch Library. A first public meeting with the project architect is Wednesday, April 9, from 6-7:30 p.m. at Curtis Hall (next to the branch.) The meeting is on the second floor.
In Case You Missed It: In weekend city news you might have missed, Boston Police shot and killed a man in the South End after police say he lunged at them with knives during a domestic dispute call.
Have a good day, JP.
