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.

Roslindale Village Main Street As some of you may have heard, Mayor Thomas M. Menino passed away this morning. RVMS would like to extend condolences to Menino’s family and to those who were close to him. We know that he was a Mayor who touched many lives and that the work he did for, and with, our community will be a lasting memory. These are just a couple of our favorite photos taken over the many years of Menino's service to our City and our community.

Alan Niebanck Photography I just finished my exhibit of store fronts for this weekend. Each collage has 60+ store fronts from the 3 communities, Roslindale, West Roxbury, and Jamaica Plain. Above each collage, I selected a single store front that I thought came out particularly well, but any one of the 60+ in each collage can be printed in a larger size.
