District A1 Police honors RUFF

Responsible Urbanites For Fido (RUFF) received well-earned recognition for community services at National Night Out hosted by North End Against Drugs (NEAD), presented by Boston Police Department District A1.

Captain William Fong presented the award to RUFF for their tireless efforts to create a North End dog Park in the DeFilippo Park and for the many community efforts on behalf of the neighborhood including playground and park cleanups.

Without barking it up, RUFF has become a viable neighborhood asset with paws on attitude.

The Greenway: A great place to be

So many things are happening on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway it’s unbelievable.

Each year, The Greenway offers more and more for the general public to enjoy. Much of it free.

Managed by The Greenway Conservancy, the Board has two very active North End residents, Robyn Reed and John Pregmon who play key roles in The Greenway programs, activities and policy making.

The Oasis in the neighborhood is a great place to have some fun, take in the sun, enjoy the events or to take a stroll.
