We celebrated Moving Forward at our 39th Anniversary Reception & Annual Meeting on May 2nd! The event was held in our special Big White Tent at Urban Edge in Jackson Square, Roxbury.
The Big White Tent flaps billowed in the wind and we got a bit chilly at the beginning of our annual celebration. However, it soon warmed up thanks to the delicious food, interesting conversations, inspiring remarks from the stage, plus the joy we all felt celebrating the successes of the past year, while presenting Susanne Cameron and Citi with the Urban Edge Community Partnership Award, and Jacqui Furtado with the new Urban Edge Peter Lee Community Building Award. 250 of our supporters joined us to celebrate the moment. Byron Barnett of WHDH Ch7, our emcee once again, got the evening started and called for a moment of silence to honor those injured or killed in the Marathon bombings. Board Chairman Tom Davis did the honors of holding the annual Board election, after which Chrystal Kornegay, President and CEO, shared three stories of local individuals reflecting the positive impact Urban Edge has in so many different ways. Our guest speaker was Beverly Scott, Ph.D., MBTA General Manager and MassDOT Rail & Transit Administrator, who graciously shared her inspiring thoughts on building community.
We look forward to renovating and building, educating and encouraging, assisting and succeeding throughout the community in the year ahead. With your continued help, wonderful things will continue taking place in the neighborhoods we serve.
