Remembering Thomas M. Menino

We are saddened by the passing of a friend to CHR and to the city of Boston, Thomas Menino. The above photo was taken in 2012 as the former mayor visited The Beethoven Elementary School to see CHR’s completion of a streetscape beautification project. Boston Shines, a program Menino founded, is a project that CHR strongly believes in and one that we will continue to do in his honor.


He will be missed.

We all had such a fabulous time and The Spirit of Boston is a beautiful boat. The views of sunset over the city of Boston were spectacular. Great food, music, dancing and good friends…the party kept going after the boat docked. When you are having fun, time goes by quickly.

The lush summer landscapes slow down and start to conserve their energy for a long winter.
