It was a special party in the park at the 15th Anniversary Celebration for Friends of Christopher Columbus Park on Tuesday night. U.S. Air Force Rhythm in Blue Jazz Band performed as hundreds sat on the Great Lawn to enjoy the perfect summer evening in the park.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh was on hand to congratulate the all-volunteer group while State Rep. Aaron Michlewitz proudly declared FOCCP as the BEST Friends group in Boston. Also taking part were State Senator Joe Boncore and Parks Commissioner Chris Cook. A highlight from the City and Parks Department were commemoratory benches with plaques presented to FOCCP Presidents Dan Nuzzo and Joanne Hayes-Rines.
