Dessert Cafe Postponed to 2.9 & Collecting Park Memories…

3 Feb

[Update 2.6.15: Due to the snowstorm predicted for this weekend and Monday, we may need to postpone the Dessert Cafe again to Monday, Feb. 23, from 6-8pm. Look for an update here late Sunday afternoon. C.]

Due to Monday’s snow, we postponed our Dessert Cafe until next Monday, Feb. 9th. Same time and same place: 6-8pm at Cambridge Arts (City Hall Annex, 344 Broadway). Please join us for delicious sweets, hot drinks, great conversation and our exhibit, Magazine Beach–A Place Apart, too!

Time slowed down on Saturday afternoon, as guests shared stories of Magazine Beach. They spoke of seagulls, wayward youth, baseball games, a nearby ice cream shop and drive-in, pool and river swims, playing ball to the bright lights of Braves Field (across the river, now BU’s Nickerson Field), renting paddle boats, launching boats into the river at Lindstrom Boat Launch, discovering a kicker for the N.E. Patriots doing an exhibition night there, and catching a glimpse of President George H. W. Bush and his helicopter, landing in the fields–Pres. Bush arriving to speak at BU. Many thanks to all who participated in the Memory Party and all who made the event happen.

If you couldn’t make the event, but have a story, please contact or 617-868-0489. We want your Magazine Beach memories! Or you can share your story at Magazine Beach Its History and Your Memories on Thursday, Feb. 5th at 1pm, at the Citywide Senior Center, at Central Square. See you there!

Magazine Beach is Now Open for Business–the Business of Making Snowmen!
