The next Dorchester Day Parade Committee meeting is taking place this Tuesday, February 25th at 7 P.M.
The committee will be meeting at the Ramada Inn located at 800 Morrissey Blvd in the breakfast room. We will be reviewing 2014 Chief Marshal Nominations, the 2014 Mayor of Dorchester contest, and discuss upcoming committee events.
As we gear up for nice weather and as the Dorchester events start, please save the date for the annual Meatloaf Kick-off Dinner on March 27th at the First Parish Church at 6:30 P.M.
We hope you can join us at the parade meeting and in March for the Kick-off.
In light of recent events that have affected the Dorchester Community and the City of Boston, the Dorchester Day Parade Committee has decided to postpone the 10K Cocktail$ and Ca$h Golden Gala from this Friday, April 19 to May 24, 2013. This is a time for grief and reflection as we all pray for the families of this tragedy to find peace.
