RVMS Announces our Business and Volunteer of the Year 2017

Each year, Boston Main Streets districts select a Business and Volunteer of the Year, and recognize their contributions to the community during an award ceremony with the Mayor. Main Streets depend on local volunteers to sustain our organizations, and work with local businesses to ensure a thriving neighborhood. 

RVMS Business of the Year: Village Market

2017 marks Village Market's 20th Anniversary in Roslindale Village. The McInnis brothers take care of the market with pride and take all and any requests from customers. Without the Village Market as an anchor in the neighborhood, residents wouldn't have quick walkable access to a local grocery store.

RVMS Volunteer of the Year info: Talia Whyte

Talia has a quiet and unassuming personality, but is truly a force to be reckoned with and is someone you can always count on to get the work done. She is a talented marketer, website designer, and creative thinker who is among the marketing committee's most reliable volunteers. Talia led the design and implementation of the 2016 RVMS website overhaul, making information more readily accessible to the community and easier for staff to update. Talia also volunteers extensively with Friends of the Roslindale Library.
