This years 2016 Dorchester Park Gala Celebration

28 Jun

2016 save the date gala jpg

Dear Friend,

 

This year, our beloved Dorchester Park marks its 125th anniversary and to celebrate, the Dorchester park Association is planning a gala cocktail party event in the park, with music, dancing, and small plates on Friday September 9th, 2016.  We will be hosting our usual events: a Family Fun Day and Auto Show on Sunday, September 11.

 

We have had similar events in years past but our goal this year is to welcome and introduce as many Dorchester residents to the wonders of the Park with a more casual event at a lower price point, while raising enough funds to continue our important work of retaining and revitalizing Dorchester Park for our community. Our goals are to re-introduce water sources in two locations brought in by our volunteers to maintain them during the critical period of establishing root systems. We are also continually working in partnership with the Parks Department to assess the health of mature trees in the Park and plan for new plantings to replace dead or dying trees. The endowment allows us to purchase and plant new trees to keep the natural forestscape.

 

Dorchester Park, an Olmstead designed park, has been added to the National Register of Historic Places and the Association has set its overall goal to leave  Dorchester Park with the same foot print and design for the citizens of Dorchester in the year 2091, the two hundredth birthday of Dorchester Park.

 

Help us reach this goal on the Park’s 125th anniversary of the founding of the park, by contributing to the fund to maintain and improve the urban forest within the park. This will support the weekend events including the Gala, Car Show and Family Fun Day . We hope you can help by being a sponsor of this event and we look forward to collaborating with you for this worthy cause. The sponsorship levels are listed below.
