Good morning, neighborhood. Here's your Morning Memo for all things JP for Thursday, July 17.
Thursdays on the Lawn: As you probably know by now, Thursdays are pretty special at the historic Loring-Greenough House. From 3:30 p.m. til dark there will be food trucks (Bon Me and Clover are expected), a farmer's market, live music and more. Stop by any Thursday through October at 12 South St.
"Cool Runnings" Shown Outdoors for Free: Also happening Thursday at the Loring-Greenough House is the JP Centre/South Main Streets Screen on the Green program. Thursday's movie is "Cool Runnings," about the Jamaican bobsled team. Should start around 8 p.m., depending on when dusk settles.
Egleston Barbershop Celebrates 45 Years in Business: One great thing about JP is how many local businesses have been able to keep the doors open for decades. One of those businesses is Lawson's Barbershop and Beauty Salon, 1975 Columbus Ave. The barbershop is celebrating its 45th year. (Hat tip to Egleston Square Main Streets for highlighting this business's accomplishment.)
Community Meeting About Jackson Square Parcel: On Tuesday, the city's Department of Neighborhood Development will hold its third meeting about how a city-owned parcel at Bromley, New Heath and Parker streets should be used. JP Neighborhood Development Corp. is encouraging that affordable housing be built there. Tuesday, July 22, 6:30 p.m., Family Service of Greater Boston, 31 Heath St. (Second floor). If you'd like to catch up on the background before going to Tuesday's meeting, the Gazette has been following this process closely.
Okay. Have a great day, everyone!
