Two young residents of Mishawum Park – a 337-unit residential community on Main Street in Charlestown – were recently recognized for their contributions to the 2014 MassHousing Calendar Project. Ryllie Burke-Erardi was named second place winner of the seven-year-old category and six-year-old Sadie Telles came in third place in her age group.
Each year, MassHousing – a not-for-profit, public agency providing more than $16 billion in financing for buyers, owners and developers of affordable rental housing – facilitates the calendar contest to provide youth residents with an opportunity for creative expression and the chance to have their artwork published in MassHousing’s annual calendar. This year’s Calendar Project drew 156 submissions.
According to Kelly P. Tucker, Chairperson of Mishawum Park Tenants Association, “the MassHousing Calendar Project proved to be a very positive experience for our youth residents and we’re very proud of these girls who represent Mishawum Park.”
