It was great to see 3,500 people – Bostonians and tourists alike – enjoying a (mostly) sunny free Family Play Day on the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway. Kids had a blast dancing to music, trying on costumes from the Puppet Collaborative, making paper flowers for mom and enjoying giant bubble-making and other fun activities courtesy of the YMCA

Families enjoy the day.
The event kicked off with the cutting of a green ribbon on the Mothers’ Walk Wall. The beautiful wall is constructed from stones unearthed during the Big Dig – long ago they supported piers where the Greenway now stands.

Mothers on Our Minds

Posted by thecastlegroup on May 5, 2009

With Mother’s Day approaching this Sunday, Castle is involved in a couple of great events that celebrate the spirit of mothers and children.

 

Our client, the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, is planning a free Family Play Day at the Wharf District Parks in downtown Boston this Saturday, May 9.  Families are encouraged to pack a picnic and enjoy a day of music, crafts and entertainment, a fun and frugal way to celebrate Mother’s Day. The event kicks off at 10:00 a.m. with the dedication of the Mothers’ Walk wall, featuring remarks by Mayor Thomas M. Menino. For more information, please visit http://www.rosekennedygreenway.org.

 

Also on Saturday, a team from Castle will be taking part in the March of Dimes March for Babies walk along Storrow Drive. The March of Dimes has made great strides in preventing premature births and addressing preemies’ medical complications, and we are proud to help them continue their important work.

 

Finally, Castle’s own co-founder Sandy Lish was included in a lighthearted Forbes.com take on what working mothers want for Mother’s Day. Her wish – for her husband to download and organize all the songs she wants on her iPod.
