Navy Yard Views

An interview with Charlestown Mothers Association Co-President Rebecca Love. First FCNY young adults networking event will be next Thursday at Max and Dylans.

To all the family, friends and others who are trying to recover from Sandy may you find comfort in the midst of this crisis. Do you know someone who is in need, please comment—what have you done to help and should we be doing more?  

I for one am happy this election is behind us and our elected officials can get on with their work. The election process is flawed but we owe a big thank you to all the volunteers at the poles.  I was in and out in an hour and thought how fortunate we are to be a democracy and to be able to cast a vote.  What was your experience at the poles? 

Recently I had the opportunity to interview Charlestown Mothers Association (CMA)Co-President Rebecca Love. Did you know there are 1,050 CMA members and approximately 1,200 member children? There are 143 member moms in the Navy Yard.  It was no surprise that one of the biggest challenges facing our Charlestown moms is affordable education. Did you know the cost of preschool can run in the thousands? Along with education outdoor space is in short supply in our community. Moms discuss these pressing issues and have a bit of fun at their monthly “mom’s night out” and their monthly “new moms’ breakfast”. The Charlestown Mothers Association is currently working on a turkey drive.  Check out this influential nonprofit group at http://www.charlestownmothersassociation.org/.

The FCNY will have the first young adults networking event hosted at Max and Dylans next week….. Thursday 11/15 6:00—8:00 rsvp preferred http://www.friendscny.org

Also mark your calendars for the next Conservation Commission hearing with regard to Shipyard Quarters Marina at Boston City Hall  Wednesday 11/28 6:00  

Did you hear the Tavern On the Water will be closing for good?  Rumor has it another dining establishment will be taking that prime waterfront location.  Please comment if you know?
