Beautification Awards Presented at the Groom Humphreys Meeting


The Groom Humphreys Neighborhood Association meets monthly on the 3rd Wednesday at the Kroc Center.

The September meeting agenda included the presentation of beautification awards to area residents by members of the Uphams Corner Improvement Association (UCIA).  Of the four awards in the Groom Humphreys neighborhood, two of the recipients were able to attend the September 19 meeting.

Mr. Hal Cohen, who officiates these meetings, is to be commended for making a special effort to contact the award recipients and  encouraging them to attend the meeting to personally receive their awards.  For those unable to attend the meeting, he then made sure they received their awards privately.  THANKS!!

Nancy Conrad, UCIA member, noted that many Dorchester residents do not have a good appreciation for the Groom Humphreys section of Uphams Corner as there have been crime issues dominating the news.  However, the Improvement Association, she said, had found much hidden beauty in the neighborhood.  She told the residents in attendance that they should feel very proud that these awards were being issued.

The members applauded with enthusiasm for Mr. Cohen's efforts and for the two families receiving the awards.  Ms. Carol Perez, UCIA member, read the awards as part of the formal presentation while Ms. Conrad took photos.

Congratulations to everyone.
