A Very Special Thank You from the Director!
Our Doors yesterday! The Day was a big success--we are still collecting
participant numbers but it may have been our biggest year ever.
The Day opened with the Boston Children's Chorus on the Plaza, followed Bob
Gittens who introduced Mayor Menino, then State Rep Byron Rushing, and Vice
Chair of the MCC Barbara Wallace Grossman. Two Berklee College
students--Eytan Nicholson and Vincent Sneed who created The Boston Song
performed it for us on the stage. The Kick-Off activities concluded with
the Happy Birthday Song led by Vincent Sneed, and then a huge children's
parade (led by the Hot Tamales Brass Band) around the Reflecting Pool.
Children picked up their free cupcake from the cupcake cake donated by Sara
Ross of Kickass Cupcakes Food Truck, and made their way to all other
