Hello neighbors. Here's your Morning Memo for Thursday, Aug. 28.

Walking Tour of Stony Brook: The JP Historical Society's season of free walking tours is winding to a close, with just one month of them left. On Saturday, take the Stony Brook tour, where you'll learn about how the community rose up in the 1970s to stop a highway being built right through our neighborhood. Other topics of the walk include German-American influence on that part of JP and the Sam Adams Brewery. Tour meets at Stony Brook T at 11 a.m. on Saturday. Free.

Jobs, Part I: I try to stay on the lookout for job opportunities to pass along. Here's one from Hyde Square Task Force. They need a development and communications administrator.

Jobs, Part II: And Boston EMS is hiring certified EMTs.

Signs of the Apocalypse, Real Estate Edition: If you've been looking to buy a home in JP recently, you know places are going for more than asking. Sometimes a lot more. The latest data point for this trend comes from Curbed Boston, which reports on 40 Alveston St., a three-bedroom condo that was on the market for $750,000 and sold for $780,000.

Have a good rest of the day, neighbors.
