Menino On Main

Join us for a one-time special event, Menino On Main, a fundraiser tribute celebrating Roslindale Village Main Street’s 30 years of urban Main Streets work and the person whose vision made it all possible — former Mayor Thomas M. Menino. In the only neighborhood event of its kind, we will be marking this momentous occasion in urban Main Streets history by celebrating the release of Mayor Menino’s book, Mayor for a New America.

Egleston Farmers Market We are saddened by the loss of former mayor, Tom Menino, a stalwart champion of Boston's neighborhood farmers markets. He oversaw the introduction of neighborhood farmers markets with the introduction of the Roslindale Farmers Market nearly 30 years ago (run by Roslindale Village Main Street), lifted up neighborhoods by implementing the first Main Streets program in the country (thank you for Egleston Square Main Street!) and much, much more. We offer our gratitude, and heartfelt thanks for his devotion to, and work for, our city.

Stephen McCarthy Last night WGBH's "Greater Boston" ran a full hour dedicated to Mayor Menino's impact on the city. For the final 20 min they ran a piece profiling then-city council candidate Menino as he campaigned in 1984. It's an amazing West Zone time capsule including a community meet-up where he talks about revitalization of Roslindale Square as one of his top priorities. You can view it on-line here: (scroll to 39:22).

Linda Burnett Tom and Angela at this year's Gay Pride Parade. He brooked no intolerance or discrimination of any kind. A jewel in Boston's crown is lost; his gifts will live on. My sympathies to Angela and the rest of his family, and to our fair city.
