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.
